BIGGLSWADE Town Cricket Club is on course for a cluster of major trophies this summer.
They could soon be celebrating a hat trick of trophies because they remain in three evening knock out cups.
Against Aryans in the Hospital Cup, Biggleswade were in great form as they swept aside the Bedford side by a massive 10 wickets.
Hero of the night was Biggleswade bowler Neil Wilden who took four wickets for just two runs in six balls.
Aryans were all out for a paltry 40.
Tom Dupuy (30 not out) and Richard Smith (11 not out) knocked off the winning runs to set up Biggleswade with a second round tie against Bedford Pakistanis tonight (Thursday) at Fairfield.

In the East Beds Senior Shield, Biggleswade were drawn against local rivals Caldecote and after two cancelled dates due to rain, the game finally went ahead last Thursday.
Once again the Biggleswade bowlers dominated on a slow wicket restricting Caldecote to 60 with Matt Twigg taking 4-3.
Biggleswade reached a winning total with five overs to spare with Kevin Wright finishing on 31 not out.
In The Heritage Cup, Biggleswade faced Eaton Socon. Biggleswade, hoping to retain the cup, scored 147 with Jimmy Hart blasting 73 off 60 deliveries.
But Eaton Socon faced some hostile bowling and with Hart taking 3-26 and Harmit Bahra 3-30 they failed to match Biggleswade's total.
