ADAM Arscott scored his first century in real style, smashing 17 fours and ten sixes in a mammoth 175.

Arscott achieved the feat as Ewelme defeated Sydenham by 114 runs in a 35-over-a-side clash on Sunday.

The opening batsman dominated Ewelme’s 284-5 before Sydenham were bowled out for 170.

Arscott said: “I am 27 and have played for Ewelme for ten years and before that worked my way through Warborough youth set-up.

“My previous highest score was 86 versus Stadhampton in 2003.”

Arscott was also part of a record club partnership of 183 with Andy Climpson, who made 66.”
