CUMNOR’S Dylan Driscoll had a dream first-team debut as the 13-year-old scored a century and helped break a club record which had stood for 55 years.

The schoolboy hit 106 not out alongside James Lee, whose unbeaten 125 took them to 254 without loss from their 40 overs.

It set up a ten-wicket victory in the National Village Cup first round tie, with Eynsham skittled for 122 off 31 overs.

The previous club record is believed to have been set in 1964, when Bears legend Bob Boyles was involved in a stand of 206 for the first wicket.

Skipper Joe Dale said: “It was a fantastic start to our competitive season.

“The Village Knockout is a competition that means a lot to the club and to see Dylan bat with such maturity to score his first club 100 on debut was outstanding.

“Him being steered through his innings by the only slightly more mature James Lee (26) was a great story of locally grown talent performing on the big stage. It’s a testament to our junior section.”
