Saturday 26th June 2010 will be remembered as a special day for those of us that witnessed an astonishing opening partnership by Ben Larkin and Rory Flanagan of 295 runs against Rush. After a testing early spell from the Rush opening bowlers the pair settled down and delighted all and sundry with some wonderful strokeplay finishing on 153 and 106 respectively.
For Ben, it came as a great relief to contribute a big innings after a challenging start to his season in unfamiliar conditions and for Rory, having played 4 years at Phoenix, a proud moment to register a maiden century in front of his mum and dad.
Congratulations to both of them. For some great pics of the day…
