Laidley’s chance to upstage Wests for Shield title glory

AFTER an unbeaten innings to help keep his team's top three hopes alive, Centrals stalwart Wayne Jones hopes Laidley can finish the job in this year's Harding-Madsen Shield competition.

Centrals and Laidley will contest the Ipswich final in a fortnight.

Before that, Laidley can win the annual intercity competition overall by beating pacesetters Wests at Heritage Oval in Toowoomba next weekend.

Both teams are unbeaten with the final round victors to be crowned latest Harding-Madsen Shield champions.

Laidley (2/113) had a comfortable win over the South East Redbacks ( 112) as Wests (2/184) accounted for Thunder (182). Lee Watts held the Thunder innings together with 55.

"We're all happy to see Laidley up there,'' Jones said of his team's major Ipswich competition rivals.

"If they get their full complement (of players) they will be a handful for Wests.''

Centrals can hold third spot in the competition if they win their final round game at Limestone Park next weekend.

Centrals opener Wayne Jones scored his second half century of the season.

Centrals (4/163) defeated Southern Districts (161) on Saturday with opener Jones remaining 52 not out, his second half century of the season.

"It was good, no chances,'' Jones said, happy to remain unbeaten after batting through the 30 overs needed to secure victory.

"They (Souths) okay in patches and made it a bit difficult but we got the win.''

Jones received valuable support from Caleb Risson (40) and Harry Dobson (33).

Captain Lachlan Vellacott earlier snared 3/38 with Alex Dell taking 3/27 and Jones chipping in with 2/33.

In the other games, Metropolitan Easts (1/169) def Brothers (165) and Highfields Railways secured a thrilling win over Northsiders at their home ground.
