Knebworth Park 242-7 Harpenden 59

AUSSIE Jarrod Turner scored a sparkling century for Knebworth on Saturday.

Fresh from their pre-season tour to La Manga in Spain, Knebworth romped to a runaway win over Harpenden.

The Park batted first on a damp wicket and were soon in trouble after the loss of openers Ryan Skeggs and Steve Gregory.

But then Australian Turner and Adrian Holmes grafted hard in the bowler-friendly conditions to add 116 for the third wicket before the latter fell for 26.

Turner applied himself brilliantly to the conditions to finish with 117.

Paul Slade (43) and Sam McCrow (15 no) then lifted the total to an impressive 242-7 in their allotted 45 overs.

The Park bowlers immediately had the visiting batsmen in trouble with Paul Slade (1-15) and McCrow, who took 4-10, posing problems with almost every delivery.

Adam Sergeant (1-15) and Michael Fisher (4-13) then demolished the tail for only 59 runs.
