TEENAGER Lewis Slater has scored a maiden century in senior cricket.
The 16-year-old from Millbrook hit 107 for Stayley second team against Heyside seconds in the JW Lees Brewery Pennine Cricket League.
It was a terrific knock from Lewis who hit three sixes and 16 fours in his 83-ball knock against second-placed Heyside.
“Lewis had made a few half centuries, but not may U16 players get a hundred on senior cricket,” explained proud dad Darren.
Lewis, who has just started studying at Ashton Sixth Form College having recently left West Hill School, Stalybridge, has had a terrific season scoring more than 600 runs for the second and third teams and claiming 50 wickets.
An opening bowler who bats at No 5, Lewis is a genuine all-rounder.
He was been playing at Stayley since the age of eight and first appeared in the second team aged 12.
Lewis has also played a number of first-team games for Stayley.
