A CENTURY from Matt Julian helped St Gluvias forget about their first defeat ten league games the previous weekend as they stuffed Redruth by 151 runs.

Julian blasted 113 off 75 balls, with 13 fours and five sixes, as the hosts put on 255-4 before declaring.

Redruth, whose second team sit in last place in Division Two West of the Cornwall Cricket League, were then bowled out for 104 in 27.4 overs with Julian’s brother, Andrew, ripping the top order apart with three wickets for six runs.

He was backed up by Scott Kellow who also claimed three wickets, at the cost of 25 runs, while a trio of scalps were also picked up by skipper Jon Udy.

Richard Kellow and Jake Preston got the innings off to a good start as they put on 68 before the latter was caught for 15.

This brought Julian to the crease, but not long afterwards Kellow was out for 74.

His younger brother Scott came to the middle and helped add 133 for the third wicket with Julian before falling victim to Ellis Whiteford for 29.

The same bowler claimed the wicket of Julian too shortly before Saints declared.

From the start of their innings, Redruth never looked capable to reaching the large target.

Top scoring for the Lambs was number eight batsman Julian Osborne, who got 27 runs before being caught by Josh Kelly off Udy.

George Bolland also chipped in with 23 for his side.
