STUDLEY were on the end of a staggering display by Oswestry left-arm seamer Jonathan Miles who took 9-7 from eight overs in the Shropshire side's 196-run Birmingham League Division Three victory at Washford Fields on Saturday.
In fact, the former Nottinghamshire 2nds player, who has also played for the Unicorns against First Class counties in CB40 matches, himself ended his hopes of claiming a perfect ten by taking a catch off Studley number 11 Stuart Harris to give Ian Davies the match-winning wicket.
Only Omaad Nazir (23) and Johar Ahmed (11) reached double figures as Miles dismissed six home batsmen for ducks in taking the first nine wickets.
However, the final wicket saw Harris taken at mid-on by Miles off the bowling of Ian Davies to dismiss Studley for 44.
Earlier Oswestry, now level on points with Penkridge at the top of the table, made 240 in which Te Ahu Davis took 3-69, Johar Ahmed 3-46 and Harris 2-19.
The loss leaves Studley bottom of the table heading into tomorrow's visit to fourth placed Tamworth.
Speaking after the match, 26-year-old Miles, a sports coach at Oswestry School, said of his heroics: "I wouldn't have been able to live with myself if I had dropped the catch on purpose."
