TIDDINGTON'S first home match in the top flight turned into a disaster when they were battered by Banbury 2nd and failed to earn a single point.
After a steady start, the home side slumped from 30 without loss to 88 all out, Ollie Wright (5-37) being responsible for much of the carnage.
Tiddington tried six bowlers in a vain attempt to make a breakthrough, but Ian Tew (39no) and Andrew Sabin (31no) led the visitors to 89 without loss.
