Cresselly lead as Neyland beaten again

Published

on

CRESSELLY are the new leaders of Division 1 of the Pembrokeshire League as they beat Kilgetty while Neyland suffered defeat against Whitland on Saturday (Jun 9).

Neyland made the trip to Whitland following the previous week’s defeat to Lawrenny and they struggled again as they only reached 145-7 in their innings.

Paul Murray scored 45 and Patrick Bellerby added 21 but they were unable to go on and make bigger scorers.

Wayne Howells took 3 for 34 and Mathew Davies 3 for 35 for Whitland.

Dylan Blain, who scored well against Cresselly the previous week, did so again as he scored 56 in Whitland’s reply.

Geraint Jones was out for 24 but Steff James hit four fours and a six to help Whitland to victory.

Cresselly made a big total of 271-6 in their innings as Adam Chandler scored 64, Iwan Izzard scored 53 and Dan Sutton added 51.

Liam Cullen took four wickets for Kilgetty who were all out for 203 in reply. Cullen scored 44 and Kyle Marsh added 33 while Kurtis Marsh top scored with 67.

Haverfordwest moved into second place as they beat Llangwm in a high scoring game at Pill Parks.

Llangwm batted first and made a good total of 234 in their innings with Richard Brock top scoring on 88 while there were scores in the twenties from James Venables, Matthew Kiff and Ewan Griffiths.

Town’s Johnnie White was the pick of the bowlers with five wickets while Simon Holliday took three wickets.

In reply, Holliday made another match-winning contribution as he scored 92 runs, well supported by Lee Summons who added 32.

Ollie Davies did take four wickets for the home side but his efforts proved in vain as Town won by four wickets.

Out: One of Johnston’s batters is bowled

Burton earned a second win of the season as they beat Johnston by nine wickets. Johnston were all out for 76 with only Hasiz Farooq making a real contribution with a knock of 34.

Johnnie Scale did the damage for Burton with six wickets as Johnston were dismissed cheaply.

In reply, despite losing one wicket, Burton were never really troubled and a score of 54 not out from Richard Jones guided the home side to victory.

Lawrenny earned a narrow one wicket win over St Ishmaels thanks to Joe Kidney who finished not out on 31.

Tish earlier made 195 thanks to Peter Bradshaw scoring 73 and Brennan Devonald finishing not out on 29.

In reply, Lawrenny lost wickets at regular intervals with Harry Thomas scoring 35.

Two late wickets saw Lawrenny reduced to 195-9 and one more wicket would have seen the game tied but Kidney held his nerve to help Lawrenny over the line.

On Saturday (Jun 16), new leaders Cresselly are on their travels as they take on Lawrenny.

Second placed Haverfordwest take on third placed Neyland in what could prove to be a crucial game in the title race.

Elsewhere, Johnston are at home to Llangwm, Kilgetty take on Whitland and St Ishmaels are at home to Burton.

Late Smith penalty seals Pembroke win

Published

on

A LATE penalty from Toby Smith earned Pembroke a 15-13 victory in a hard-fought encounter with Pembrokeshire rivals Fishguard on Saturday (Dec 29).

It was an excellent game between two good teams with Pembroke feeling a little rusty having not played for three weeks while the heavy pitch suited a Fishguard side who were looking to avenge their narrow 16-17 defeat at home to Pembroke earlier in the season.

There was no sign of rustiness however as the home side started the game well and could have gone ahead but Johnny Palmer was held up over the line.

Sean Dalling also looked to be free but he was ankle tapped near the line and the Seagulls were able to recover.

Having weathered the early storm the Seagulls then took the lead as Andrew Williams touched down under the posts. Kial Keane then added the extra two points.

Pembroke responded well and were soon back on level terms as Dan Colley ran a good line off Toby Smith to touch the ball down under the posts. Smith then added the extras.

The home side then went ahead as a good break by Tom Lewis set up captain Scott Powell who crashed over. This time the conversion was missed by Pembroke held a 12-7 lead.

They could have had a third try soon after as Dan Colley touched down but it was ruled out for a marginal forward pass.

The Seagulls then narrowed the gap as Keane scored a penalty and the score at half time was 12-10 in Pembroke’s favour.

In the second half Fishguard came at Pembroke well and they took the lead with another penalty from Keane to make it 12-13 to the visitors.

It was an evenly contested half but it was Pembroke who had the final say as Smith sent a penalty through the posts in the last minute to seal a 15-13 victory.

Pembroke’s win keeps them fourth in the table and they will look for another win on Saturday (Jan 5) as they host Carmarthen Athletic.

Fishguard will look to get back to winning ways as they travel to Burry Port who sit just below them in the table.
