Profile

Sibley John "Tip" Snooke, died in Port Elizabeth on August 14, 1966, aged 85. Tip Snooke played in 26 Tests for South Africa as a stylish right-handed batsman and right-arm fast-medium bowler. He was a regular member of the side before the First World War, captaining the team in the five-Test series with England in 1909-10. He was recalled and opened the attack against England as a 42-year-old in 1922-23. Snooke scored 1,008 Test runs, making a century against Australia at Adelaide in 1910-11, and took 35 Test wickets. And he had a long first-class career, beginning as a 17-year-old for Border, going on to play for Western Province and Transvaal: 124 matches in all -- a huge number for a South African in that era -- in which he scored 4,821 runs (average: 25.91) and took 120 wickets at 25.14. He managed the successful 1935 South African side to England. His brother, S. D. Snooke, also played for South Africa and his grandsons, S. J. and W. J. McAdam, both appeared in the Currie Cup.
