Jordan Neill's brilliant century inspired the NCU Under 19's to a 27-run win over Lurgan in the NCU T20 Trophy.

The Irish youth international, who plays at interprovincial level for Munster Reds, thumped 12 sixes and 8 fours in his superb 128 from just 63 balls to take his side to 187 for 6.

The 18 year-old shared a second wicket stand of 135 in 13 overs with Adam Heasley (29*) after he and Ryan Matthews (17) had put on an opening stand of 38.

Adam Johnson (3-22) was best with the ball for Lurgan.

The Pollock Park side made a brave fist of the chase thanks to a third wicket stand of 101 in 13 overs between Reghard Els (71) and Stephen Chambers (40), but they ended on 160 for 7.

" Jordan is clearly a proper player, and excellent trainer," said NCU U19 coach Simon Johnston.

"He is a very nice kid who, like Kian Hilton is very driven. Jordan hit some monster sixes over the pavilion. He hits the ball very hard and took advantage of what was an excent track at Lurgan."

The NCU Under 19's are playing in the NCU T20 Trophy to give them match practice and the young Knights are clearly a very talented crop.
