ISAAC Wareham is proving himself worthy of a spot in a South West Cricket powerhouse’s first XI.

Mortlake captain Todd Lamont was pleased with the teenager’s unbeaten 59 in the Cats’ 106-run win over Camperdown on Saturday.

Wareham is only 15 and a member of the Western Waves’ state championship team.

“He’s batted really well the last two weeks,” Lamont said.

“We’ve used him at the top of the order but he is better in the middle order.

“He works the ball around and is a good runner between wickets.”

Cats bowler James Cody-Davis “cleaned up the tail” with 5-13 and Clinton Baker snared 3-36 as the Lakers were sent packing for 73.
