Melville’s Luke Towers scores another century on Premier Cricket

MELVILLE stalwart Luke Towers scored another century against Claremont-Nedlands on day one of round eight in the Premier Cricket on Saturday.

Towers was the star for Melville as he contributed 119 in the Storm’s total of 288 all out on Saturday at Cresswell Park.

Blake Reed and Matt Wiley both scored 39 to support the centurion, who has been in rare form in recent weeks.

Fraser Hay then hit 52 in a late cameo to propel his side to a near 300 score, in a crucial clash between two top-six contenders.

Towers’ knock was all the more impressive after captain Tom Scollay was dismissed for a duck third ball of the day.

The 27-year-old batted for almost six hours, guiding Melville to a strong position against the Tigers. Play resumes on Saturday at 11.40am.
