TEENAGER Will Legg once again stole the show as PEPPARD STOKE ROW KITES recorded their 12th win in 14 outings with a 98-run success at ENGLEFIELD GREEN.
After a rocky start had left the visitors reeling on 32-3, 17-year-old Legg joined his father Gary in adding a 160-run stand until the latter was bowled attempting an agricultural heave.
The junior Legg went on to record a well-constructed century with shots all around the wicket. Having reached his third ton of a highly productive campaign, Legg unveiled an extraordinary scoop shot before he was eventually dismissed for 125 â?? chopping on to be bowled.
Some late order fireworks from Max Baker-Smith â?? who hit a six on to the adjacent road â?? helped the Kites reach 252-6 at the end of their 40 overs.
Englefield were never truly in the hunt after Hamish Scott and Tom Woodward reduced the hosts to 19-4 and with debutant James Nicoll showcasing some fine off spin, the eventual result was never in doubt.
Ruaridh Scott showed signs of a return to his best form before star of the day Legg returned to bowl a fast in-swinging Yorker which castled Zimbabwean Tom Dawson as Englefield were dismissed for 152.
