First century a sweet success for Hughes

AS FAR AS sweet sporting weekends go, it is hard to say anybody has had it sweeter than Jason Hughes.

Hughes has captained Harwood's first grade team in the Lower Clarence Cricket Association since leaving the premiership-winning Wanderers team.

He has taken on the captaincy at his new club, leading the next generation through their transition from junior to senior cricket.

Saturday's game against Lawrence will be one that stands out in his memory for a long time, though he did not let on how excited he was to salute the crowd for the first time in his career.

"Aww yeah, it's all right," Hughes said. "It's my first century ever.

"We won the game, which is the main thing. I'm actually a bit disappointed I wasn't there at the end."

Hughes was caught out on 110 as his side successfully chased a mammoth 209 for victory.

"She was a good wicket to bat on but there wasn't too much in it for bowlers," Hughes said.

"We've done plenty of chasing this year and it's given us confidence."

Josh Cormack top-scored for Lawrence with 52.
