Cricklade II 114 all out
Cirencester III 219-9
The unbeaten Town side top the table after two matches.
Despite losing opening partner Ian Frost for a second-ball duck, Smith soon took the Cricklade bowlers to task, thrashing two sixes and 17 fours in his 120 and sharing productive early stands with Sam Frost and Kim Milson.
Brian Woodcock then came in to hit six fours in his 30 which took the final total to 219-9.
Cricklade were all out for 114 in reply, only Richard Coole (35) putting up any sustained resistance.
Frost took 1-16 in his 10 overs, while young spinner Mike Howell (3-45) and veteran club stalwart Phil Carter (4-18) completed a resounding win.
