Celebrations: Haverfordwest celebrate retaining their Division One crown

HAVERFORDWEST cruised to an eight-wicket win on Saturday (Aug 27) to secure the points they needed to retain their Division One title.

Going into the game, Haverfordwest were just two points ahead of challengers Neyland and knew they would need a strong win if they were to retain their title.

Lawrenny batted first but were all out for just 136, with Adam James taking another five wickets.

James was involved early on as he had Steve Campbell and Harry Thomas for a second ball duck , both caught by Huw Scriven.

Steve and Jamie Lewis then shared 28 for the third wicket before Jamie was caught by Simon Holliday off the bowling of James.

Brad Mcdermot-Jenkins and Steve Lewis then shared 18 runs for the fourth wicket but Mcdermot-Jenkins was then caught by Ben Field off the bowling of Gareth Davies , having hit two fours and a six in a score of 14.

Steve Lewis had hit seven fours and a six in a knock of 42 from 35 balls but he was then caught by David Davies off the bowling of James to leave Lawrenny on 61-5.

Ian Jenkins was then bowled by Simon Holliday as Lawrenny struggled to find runs.

Simon Cole and James Buckle set about putting Lawrenny in a better position as they shared 47 runs for the seventh wicket.

That partnership was brought to an end when Cole was caught by Adeel Khan off the bowling of Gareth Davies for a score of 29 , which included four fours and a six.

Davies then removed Philip Cole and Rob Williams before James returned to take the final wicket of Buckle.

Buckle had hit three fours and a six in a score of 28 but his wicket meant Lawrenny were all out for 136 and that Town had picked up maximum bowling points.

In reply, Simon Holliday and Nikhil Mathias shared 63 for the opening partnership to put Town in a strong position as they edged closer to the title.

Mathias was bowled by Rob Williams for a score of 37 , which included five fours , and David Davies made three as he played a supporting role to Holliday before he was bowled by Mcdermot-Jenkins.

Ben Field hit four fours and a six as he finished not out 24 from 22 balls while Holliday was the star of the innings as he hit nine fours and a six to finish not out on 69.

The win gave Haverfordwest 28 points but they faced a nervous wait to find out if Neyland would overtake them.

Neyland secured 29 points from their game meaning Haverfordwest were champions once again.

Signed Wales shirts gifted to RNLI go up for auction



FOLLOWING a winning start to the Six Nations Tournament, the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) have scored a winning try for the RNLI, gifting six signed rugby shirts to help save lives at sea.

Each rugby shirt has been signed by the full WRU squad and are accompanied by a certificate of authentication – a winning prize for any Welsh rugby fan.

To avoid a ruck for the WRU shirts the charity has placed all six signed shirts on an online auction, ensuring a fair game for all who wish to win the golden prize. The auction will be live until Wednesday, March 31, which allows plenty of time for supporters to bid for the team in red.

Each signed shirt includes Wales Captain, Mumbles RNLI supporter and the most capped international player of all time Alun Wyn Jones; as well as Louis Rees-Zammit, the Man of the Match in the nail-biting Scotland v Wales game.

Nick Evans, RNLI Fundraising and Partnership Lead said: ‘On behalf of the charity I would like to say a big thank you to the Welsh Rugby Union for donating these fantastic prizes to the RNLI. RNLI volunteers are on call 24-7 and are often called away from important events such as family celebrations – or international rugby tournaments – to respond to the pager if someone is in trouble at sea.

‘Like all charities, 2020 was a challenging year for the RNLI when all traditional fundraising had to stop – all our shops were closed, there were no collections and all events had to be cancelled. This is why we at the RNLI are so grateful to all the team at WRU for their ongoing support. The auction is now live and we would like to encourage all Wales rugby supporters to throw the RNLI a lifeline and place their bid for the winning prize.’

Five subs to be allowed for JD Cymru Premier clubs



THE FAW’s National Leagues Board has confirmed that JD Cymru Premier clubs will be permitted to make five substitutions in matches, in accordance with the Laws of the Game, until the end of the 2020-21 top-flight season.

FIFA extended the use of the rule, which was first introduced following the COVID-19 outbreak, citing “player welfare” as part of the reason for the temporary amendment to Law 3 of the Laws of the Game.

FIFA stated that “Some competitions which resumed in 2020 may have a shorter-than-usual recovery/preparation period before the start of their next season.”

“For many competitions, the 2020/21 season will involve matches being played in a condensed period due to a delayed start and the inability to end later than usual because of major international tournaments.”

With the JD Cymru Premier set to restart on March 2, the National Leagues Board has approved the use of the rule in the JD Cymru Premier until the end of the current campaign.
