Tyler Marks hit a career best 64 as Hornchurch Athletic kept up the pressure on league leaders Tillingham with a comfortable win over Bentley seconds.

Coming in at number eight with Athletic struggling, Marks changed the game as he combined with Dan Stone (48) to see Hornchurch to a very useful 249 all out.
