The Campbelltown-Camden Ghosts remain at the top of the Sydney First Grade Premiership ladder after day one of the round 11 fixture.

The Ghosts posted a total of 9/337 against the University of NSW side on Saturday.

Campbelltown captain Jarrad Burke won the toss and elected to bat on Alan Davidson Oval.

Once again, opening batsman Aaron Yabsley proved his skipper’s decision was a good one, scoring his second consecutive century in the top grade.

Yabsley was dismissed with 112 runs beside his name, having steered the Ghosts top order to 214 before he was caught.

The innings furthered Yabsley’s superb form, the opened racking up 700 runs thus far in the season, proving to be tremendously valuable at the top of the order.

Englishman Ollie Pope added 36 runs to total before Phillip Wells came to the crease to see the Ghosts through to stumps.

Wells scored 82 not out and was well supported by Burke (25), Jarred Lysaught (21) and Luke Webb (21).

Skipper Burke said he was pleased with the day’s effort.

“It was a satisfying total for that ground,” he said.

Burke said he enjoyed watching Yabsley score another century.

The Ghosts bowling attack will face a wicket that’s a little inconsistent in bounce when play resumes at UNSW’s home ground next Saturday at 10.30am.

The Ghosts will also play Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club next weekend in the Sydney Cricket Association limited over quarter final.

The game will be held at Raby on Sunday from 10 in the morning.
