Former Sandhurst cricketer Isaac Conway has wasted little time in impressing his new Port Adelaide team-mates.
Conway made a century on debut for Port Adelaide in the South Australian Premier Cricket One Day Cup at the weekend.
Fresh from leading Waratah to a premiership in the Darwin cricket competition, Conway made an unbeaten 104 off 124 balls to guide Port Adelaide home against Southern District.
Batting at number four, Conway strode to the wicket after the dismissal of Tom Cooper, with Port Adelaide in trouble at 2-35 chasing 234 for victory.
Conway didn't let his new club down. He hit nine fours and one six and was involved in partnerships of 128 with opener Austin Umpherston (54) and an unbeaten 74 with Zac Worden (34 not out).
Conway's 176-minute stay at the crease saw Port Adelaide home by seven wickets with 11 balls to spare.
Conway is playing in SACA Premier Cricket until the Victorian Premier Cricket season begins.
The keeper-batsman has returned to Essendon after spending last season with the Camberwell Magpies.
Meanwhile, former White Hills keeper-batsman Brayden Stepien will resume on nine not out for Greater Northern on day two of its Tasmanian Premier Cricket clash with Lindisfarne.
Greater Northern bowled Lindisfarne out for 174 and progessed to 0-14 off four overs before stumps.
This is Stepien's second innings for the season after Greatern Northern's previous two matches were washed out.
