CHARLES F. BROOME’s batsman Reuben Agard posted the fourth century of this year’s Guardian General Herman Griffith Primary Schools Cricket Competition in his team’s lopsided 204-run victory over Vauxhall at Dover, yesterday. Ten-year-old Agard hit 18 fours in an unbeaten 128 to lead Charles F. Broome to a formidable total of 231 for three. Vauxhall were then bundled out for a meagre 27, with Khalil Clarke taking four for eight, including a hat-trick. A number of other schools were dismissed for paltry totals, with St Silas routing Half Moon Fort for just 12; Welches dismissing Holy Innocents for 23 and St Giles bowling out Grazettes for only 19.
