Logan Weston century guides Newcastle to claim Arms-Solway Cup in final over

A Logan Weston century has guided Newcastle to victory over ACT in the Arms-Solway Cup.

Batting No.3 Weston made 111 off 157 deliveries and was the mainstay of Sunday's five-wicket victory at No.1 Sportsground, featuring in a 127-run partnership with Josh Claridge (57 not out).

Newcastle chipped away at the visitor's total of 9-234 and finished on 5-238 when wicketkeeper Ben Balcomb hit a four on the first ball of the 50th over.

Daniel Arms (36) contributed at the top of the order, followed by Claridge's unbeaten half-century, but it was largely Weston who controlled the tempo and got the job done en route to reaching three figures.

Weston was dismissed at 3-209 in the 45th over.

ACT opening bowler Tyler Hays took 3-25.

Earlier it was Newcastle seamers Daniel Williams (3-47) and Daniel Bailey (2-37) who combined to trigger a collapse of 4-12, ACT going from 3-141 to 7-153.

Left-arm orthodox spinner Adrian Isherwood (3-42) picked up the first three wickets, including top scorer Dave Dubey (42).

Newcastle lost the corresponding representative friendly last year, which marked the inaugural Arms-Solway Cup.
