Connor Shingler's unbeaten 118 from 118 balls helped Kenilworth Cricket Club to a 66-run Warwickshire County Cricket League Division One victory over Standard.
Shingler's magnificent run-a-ball century saw the Town side record their best win of the season as they posted 271 for three.
He and Henry Curran put on an unbroken 127-run fourth wicket partnership with Curran making 39 not out.
Stuart Cope had earlier posted 40, Zohaid Zahid 34 and Joe Atkinson 27.
Standard started their run chase solidly but lost three quick wickets with the score on 111 to slump to five down.
Wickets continued to fall as Kenilworth took control and Standard were bowled out for 205 in the 45th over as Tom Skinner took the match-winning wicket.
However, it was skipper Atkinson who was the pick of the Town bowlers as he took 4-43, ably assisted by Shingler's fine 2-18 from his 10 frugal overs.
