Match report Blackheath created history as they scored the highest total ever recorded by a visiting team at Town Fields on Saturday.

The Kent Premier League outfit amassed 374-5 in their 45 overs to beat the previous best of 373-4 that was set by South Hampstead in May 1992.

After being put in to bat, the visitors were given a brilliant start by Sharif and Hammond, who put on 113 for the first wicket before the former powered to his century off 99 balls, taking 21 from Rudkin's last over.

The ex Essex man fell to a smart stumping by Ashman which gave South African Eden Links his first wicket for Sawbo. Aaron Alley smashed 48 from 20 balls before the real carnage was provided by Wells and Ahmed, who scored an incredible 97 runs in the final eight overs.

Wells' knock of 73 from 52 balls included nine fours and three sixes with Ahmed contributing 40 in 24 deliveries with five fours and a six.

Rudkin and Sanders gave Sawbo a blistering start, scoring 63 off the first eight overs before both fell in quick succession. Wilson top scored with 34 from 31 balls before playing on to Ahmed,who ripped through the middle order taking four wickets in five overs.

Phil Hyam, playing his first game of cricket for four years, delighted the capacity crowd with a cameo run-a-ball 10 not out at the end but Sawbo were eventually dismissed after 34.1 overs.
