Last season D&T had only one centurian all season but on Saturday Phil Snyman and Tom Petherick both hit match-winning tons for the first and second teams, respectively.
Phil blasted the Bridstowe attack for 155 in an innings described by a team mate as “a pure joy to watch”. He hit 16 fours and 6 sixes and faced a total of 123 deliveries. With Chris Cook (49) he put on 142 for the first wicket and by the time Phil departed we were 266 for 5, en route to a whopping 285 for 6. We then skittled Bridestowe for 135 with Jono Colegate taking 4 for 16 and skipper Harry Baxendale, 2 for 11. Remarkably, after his batting heroics, Phil still managed to bowl 9 overs, conceding only 23 runs and bowling out Bridstowe’s top scorer, the destructive Brandon Horn, for 43.
