Clark hits century for Second XI
Jordan Clark hit a century on the opening day of Lancashire Second XI's three-day Championship clash against Durham yesterday.
Stephen Parry won the toss and elected to bat first but Lancashire did not make a good start. Durham took three early wickets to reduce Mark Chilton's side to 51/3.
Luis Reece was playing nicely and was joined at the crease by Jordan Clark and the pair stabilised the innings before lunch. Reece was playing sensibly but it was Clark who took the attack to the Durham bowlers.
Reece (66) was dismissed, as was Danny Lamb as Lancashire found themselves 190/5. Jordan Clark (101) brought up his century but was soon dismissed. Academy batsman Calum Turner (53) came in and played an excellent innings for his hitting an important half century.
Nathan Buck (35) and Toby Lester (23) both made contributions with the bat for the eighth and ninth wicket partnerships and Lancashire were bowled out for 338.
Durham finished the day with openers Mustard and Hickey still at the crease.
