Walters scores 140, puts side in winning position. Premier Cricket

MIDLAND-Guildford batted the day to finish in a dominant position, while Joondalup have already lost first innings points to Perth during round seven of the Premier Cricket Competition.

Veteran Stewart Walters was the star on day one for Midland-Guildford after scoring an unbeaten 140 in his sides total of 7-297 against Fremantle.

Walters smashed 15 fours and four sixes to single-handedly put his side in a winning position.

His outstanding century will boost Midland-Guildford’s bid to win two Premier Cricket games in a row.

The Swans are in 12th place on the ladder after they knocked off Gosnells last week, and finished day one at 7-297 against Fremantle at Lilac Hill.

Youngster Jackson Wood scored 39, combining for an 84-run fifth-wicket stand with Walters, as the hosts put Fremantle to the sword.

Walters had earlier won the toss and batted, with Dom Sibley (26) and Tim Armstrong (27) helping lay the foundations. Newcomer Julian Crudeli, who hails from Albany, smashed 18 from 14 balls in a handy cameo at the end.

Play resumes on Saturday at 11.40am.
