Wilson puts heat on Colts



PROMISING young Cudgen batsman Heath Wilson is still excited after putting together a potentially match-winning century last week in his team's Gabba Sports Cup match against Colts last week.

Wilson, 20, hit up his maiden century - a stunning 144 - as Cudgen cruised to 9-342 against the unbeaten South Tweed Colts at Reg Dalton Oval, Kingscliff last Saturday.

The century eclipses his previous best of of 86 against Murwillumbah two years ago.

Wilson debuted in A grade almost five years ago at 15.

He has always promised much but the young player is the first to admit that rash shots may have stopped him from getting to the century milestone before.

But now he has got the taste for big runs - he is hoping that it certainly won't be his last.

"It felt pretty good," he said.

"It was hard to get to 50 - I had to work really hard. All my team-mates helped me when I was struggling a bit.

"They got me to keep my head down.

"But now I know what it feels like."
