Ed Barnard signed off in style for Scarborough CC with a half-century during a first day run feast against home side South Perth in a Western Australia Cricket Association first grade match.

The Worcestershire all-rounder has enjoyed an excellent winter with the bat and he continued in that vein after Scarborough had elected to bat.

Barnard was able to play on the opening day of the two-day fixture before flying home tomorrow.

He came in at number four with the total 186-2 and struck 66 off 94 balls with one six and six fours.

Barnard shared in a third wicket stand of 124 with century-maker Nicholas Maiolo who made 102 before he was run out.

The England Lions player was third out with the total on 310.

Lochie Hardy (75) and Samuel Moylan (60) were also amongst the runs as Scarborough totalled 366-5 in their 90 overs by the close.

Ben Twohig helped Southern Districts to obtain first innings points on the second day of the South Australia Cricket Association first grade encounter against Kensington.

The Worcestershire spinner had scored 36 and taken an early wicket on the opening day which ended with Kensington on 78-4 in reply to Southern Districts 206.

Twohig collected another scalp and finished with figures of 15-6-21-2 as Kensington were bowled out for 150.

Southern Districts then reached 69-2 for the close with Twohig, who will fly home on Wednesday, unbeaten on 12.
