Eden cricketer Jessie Mudaliar has made her first grade debut in the Tasmanian Premier League over the weekend.

After impressing in the twos, Jessie was presented her first grade cap as part of the Clarence outfit ahead of a clash with New Town.

The Clarence outfit secured a strong result over the competition-leading New Town squad thanks to a great opening bat by captain Emma Thompson.

Thompson took charge with the bat and belted her way to 79 before she was caught out.

With a few minor additions to the tally Clarence finished on 3/122 with Jessie missing the chance to bat named lower down the order.

Jessie bowled two overs against the ladder leaders, while it was Maddison Brooks doing most of the damage as she cleaned up three wickets for just 11 runs.

The result now sees Clarence level pegging with New Town for a top of the table position in the competition.

With continued good effort at training, Jessie should see plenty of time with the club's top grade.
