His highest of 148 was among five hundreds and six scores of 50 or more he made in 12 knocks. He shared a club record double-century partnership against Ashford Hill, batting partner Rich Pearce (483) hitting an unbeaten 108. Ironically, when Coombes made a ton v Damerham on the first day of the season, it was in his first HCL century in eight years !
Rob Middlecote (22 victims) was leading wicket taker for Dinton, whose hopes of finishing the season with an unblemished record were shattered when Totton & Eling III beat them by four wickets in their penultimate game. Coombes brought up his 1,000 runs for the season that mid-August day.
