Snadden ton puts Perth on top
JACOB Snadden hit his second century of the season on day one of the fixture against Scarborough at Fletcher Park.
Snadden scored 104 with 16 boundaries, getting good support from Dain Moreton (47).
Perth made a very competitive 309 and if it can defend the total next Saturday, it will complete a good first half of the season, sitting in fourth position.
Veteran Alan Tyler had a day out in the Third Grade, plundering 126.
On a sad note, the club mourned the sudden death of Daniel ‘Chief’ Townend on the weekend.
A terrorising fast bowler and hard-hitting batsman, Chief was loved by all at Perth Cricket Club.
Elsewhere in Premier Cricket, South Perth is well placed after Brooke Guest’s 97 on the first day of their match against Subiaco Floreat at Floreat Park Oval on Saturday.
He received good support from Brandon Guest (43) at the top of the order.
South Perth finished the day at 9-273.
Perth batsman Jacob Snadden scored 104 to put his team in a commanding position.
