Rising talent Daniel Morley crashed an unbeaten century to become one of the youngest players ever to do so in the Sussex Cricket League yesterday.

The 13-year-old, who plays for Portslade, ended not out on 108 as the club's 4th XI drew at Palmers 2nd XI in a Sussex League Division 11 Central (South) run-fest.

Palmers were asked to bat but centuries from opener Bashir Papolzai (129) and skipper Jano Khan (132) saw them amass 309-3 declared off 43.1 overs.

Opener Daniel stood up for Portslade in the chase, making an unbeaten 108 - becoming the club's youngest ever centurion - as they finished on 207-4 from 48 overs as the match ended in a draw.

Portslade tweeted from their official club account (@PortsaldeCC): "Massive well done to 13-year-old Daniel Morley who scored 108* not out for our 4s today! Definitely our youngest ever centurion in adult cricket!"
