Leo Burgess put the Somerset Trojans back in front in the 41st minute, and in the 44th minute St. David’s were level yet again when Angelo Cannonier made the score 2 – 2.

On the stroke of half time, a foul in the St. David’s box resulted in a penalty that Brangman made no mistake in converting to give the Somerset Trojans a 3 – 2 lead at the half-time break.

The day was marred with an unpleasant incident, as when St David’s player Detroy Smith walked off the field after being given a red card, he turned and spat on referee Anthony Francis.

    I truly hope the St David’s County Cricket Club takes this matter into hand by awarding Mr. Smith a ban from the club from 20 yrs or more His behavior was dispicable to say the least bringing shame and disappoinment to the team, Mr. Bascome, Management, fans and supporters
    A player like Mr. Smith does not deserve to be a part of a Club that has accomplished much in sports in the last year

      Nah! don’t ban him from the club, ban him from sports, so he can come around the club and not be able to play, I think is a more fitting punishment,IMO.BWDIK?
