JACOB Snadden hit his second century of the season on day one of the fixture against Scarborough at Fletcher Park.
Snadden scored 104 with sixteen boundaries, getting good support from Dain Moreton (47).
Perth totalled a very competitive 309 and if they can defend this 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 Third Grade, plundering 126.
On a very sad note, the club mourns the sudden passing of Daniel “Chief” Townend on the weekend.
A terrorising fast bowler and hard-hitting batsman, “Chief” was well 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, with the pair combining for a 99-run second-wicket partnership.
South Perth finished the day at 9-273, setting Subi a challenging target next Saturday.
