A MICHAEL Strange century put Aspenden Standon and Puckeridge on the road to a much-needed victory over Theydon Bois seconds.
Strange reached his ton with 18 fours, and such was his dominance that once he went for 102, so did most of the Aspenden order, with Mark Potter, Simon Groom, and Rob Devonshire all following their skipper back to the pavilion.
Gordon Devonshire did hit an equally impressive 70, with Clark Baxter making 12 off the last over to set Theydon a competitive score of 222-6.
Miles Thompson then saw off Theydon's Crone, with his line and length also dismissing the dangerous Hyde and Marnock, before Strange and Mathieu Booth ended the hopes of Goldie for 49.
