Charlesworth (49) and Freddie Smith (43) put on their third century stand of the season to set up a 35-run win over Guernsey Under 12s on day two.

Zach Lion-Cachet (31) ensured Oxon reached 177-6 off their 40 overs after they were put in to bat.

Coles then hit an unbeaten 78 as Oxon were involved in a thrilling tie against Wiltshire on day four.

He featured in an Oxon Under 11s’ record seventh-wicket partnership of 81 with Jarvis (24no), which took them to 144-6 after being put in to bat.
