Josh Dell impressed with the bat for Worcestershire Seconds on the opening day of the three-day friendly with Glamorgan Seconds at RGS Worcester.
Dell, who recently signed his first professional contract with the County, struck 84 off 169 balls with 11 boundaries after Worcestershire elected to bat.
He shared in a third wicket partnership of 98 in 30 overs with Nick Hammond (39) to take the score from 45 to 143.
But the last eight wickets went down for 87 runs as Worcestershire were bowled out for 230 and then Glamorgan reached 59-1 by the close.
After the early dismissal of George Rhodes, fellow opener Jack Haynes moved to 26 before he was caught behind.
The Dell-Hammond partnership was ended when the latter was caught at mid wicket.
Wickets began to tumble with Xavie Clarke nicking through to the keeper and triallist keeper Tom Keast from Nottinghamshire skying a catch to mid on.
Skipper Ollie Westbury batted down the order because of a leg injury and made 32 before falling at backward square leg.
After Dell was trapped lbw, the innings was quickly polished off with Andy Carter and triallist Bailey Wightman departing to catches at deep mid wicket and long off respectively.
Glamorgan were left a possible 25 overs but only 12 were possible before the players left the field for bad light.
In that time Steve Magoffin enjoyed the one success with the ball as Joe Voke (28) holed out to mid wicket.
