Harvey Sargent scored a magnificent unbeaten 142 as he helped Sidmouth II to a 110-run win at Heathcoat II.

Teenager Sargent faced 134 deliveries, slammed 18 fours and cracked a brace of sixes. What’s more he carried his bat throughout the 45 overs at Knightshayes, with the biggest stand along the way being the 96 he and Saj Patidar put on for the fourth wickets. Patidar make 46.

Such was the Sargent domination of proceedings that the only other Sidmouth batsman into double figures was opener Dec Lines with 22.

Thanks to the argent knock Sidmouth close on 254-6 after their 45 overs.

The home side made a good start with the run chase and sailed to 80 without loss. However, once Daley Holmes made the breakthrough – aided by a Patidar catch – wickets were taken at regular intervals with the final one going down on 144 with three-and-a-half overs remaining in the match.
