The scorebook shows Tim Singer's incredible innings

Singer, 38, from Crowborough, previous highest score was 207 not out and has played for Colemans Hatch since he was 'eight or nine'. He has also played cricket for Linden Park’s Wednesday side on occasions.

About his innings he said: "I haven’t scored many runs for a while, but did feel in good form on Saturday. I know people will probably think I’m playing at the wrong standard, but I haven't scored a hundred in years. It was just my day.

"I’m not particularly mobile, so I don’t look for many singles, which means I tend to try for the boundaries."

And how did he feel after the innings? He said: "I didn’t really give it much thought. It just seemed very surreal."
