Scott equals Dennis's record
On Saturday July 16th Scott Friswell equalled a record that has stood since 1980. Scott scored three centuries in consecutive league games a feat last achieved in 1980 by Dennis Oakes.
Dennis achieved the record in the first three games of the 1980 season, they were as follows
127 not out v Dunlop
108 not out v Stockingford
120 v Alvis
John Priest our Secretary for over 60 commented in the 1981 handbook
Dennis Oakes - His successive centuries in each of the first three league set a new record. Never before approached and unlikely ever to be broken.
John may well have been right, the record may never be broken but congratulations to Scott for equalling that record
Dennis Oakes sends his best wishes to Scott for this Saturdays game. Dennis says he would love Scott to break the record and set a new benchmark of four successive centuries in the league. Dennis went on to say "nobody would deserve the record more than Scott who is now back at his best following four years of injury problems and is now producing the form that he is capable of. Bedworth Cricket Club is in safe hands when we have a local lad like Scott as skipper and it makes me very proud to still be associated with the club.
Scott's centuries are as follows
127 not out v Hampton and Solihull
129 not out v Ambleside
109 not out v Kings Heath
This Saurday the First X1 play at Studley, good luck to Scott and his team.

Welcome to Bedworth Cricket Club, based in the Miners Welfare Park in North Warwickshire.
Over 150 years old, the club has ambitious plans to develop its clubhouse to a state of the art multi sports facility.
Running four sides on a Saturday in the Warwickshire Cricket League, and sides from U9s to U17s in the Warwickshire Cricket Board competitions.
We currently have 8 county junior players and boast over a dozen fully qualified ECB coaches, with full CRB disclosure and trained in safeguarding young children and first aid.
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
