Town maintain place at the top

Published

on

HAVERFORDWEST’s Simon Holliday scored top scored with 83 runs as he helped his side post a large total in their game with BURTON on Saturday (Jun 23).

Holliday was well supported by Lee Summons who added 45 while scores of 58 from Adam James and 52 not out from Dai Davies helped them post 277-5.

Burton then struggled to reach their target as Adam James took six wickets and Johnnie White took two. Matthew Davies scored 23 but he was their highest scorer as Burton were bowled out for 69.

NEYLAND ended their recent losing streak as they earned a draw with ST ISHMAELS on Saturday.

The All Whites posted another big total of 246-7 in their innings with Paul Murray scoring 72 and Nick Koomen adding 86, while Henry Durrant finished not out on 42.

Phil Cockburn then scored 58 not out in Tish’s reply and Andrew Williams scored 60 as they finished short of their target on 171-7.

WHITLAND ensured an early afternoon finish on Saturday as they dismissed JOHNSTON for just 42 before reaching their target in double quick time.

Johnston’s Chris Goodridge was his side’s top scorer with 17 runs but Iestyn Scourfield was in fine form for Whitland as he took six wickets. Steffan James also took four wickets.

Dylan Blain scored 23 in reply for Whitland and although Liam James took two wickets for the home side, Whitland eased to their target.

KILGETTY boosted their survival hopes as they picked up their first win of the season with a seven-wicket win at LAWRENNY.

Lawrenny batted first and were all out for 167 with Brad McDermott-Jenkins scoring 36 and Joe Kidney scoring 34.

Ross Hardy and Jack Parkinson each took three wickets for Kilgetty before Hardy scored 40 in their reply. Kyle Marsh scored 44 and Toby Poole finished not out on 45 to help his side over the line.

Kilgetty now sit just a point behind third from bottom St Ishmaels and fourth from bottom Burton.

CRESSELLY bounced back from last week’s defeat to Lawrenny as they eased to a comfortable victory over LLANGWM on Saturday.

Llangwm’s batsmen failed to make double figure scores as they were all out for 60 with Dan James taking five wickets. Sam Harts also struck twice before Dan Sutton scored 31 and Ryan Lewis added 29 to help their side to victory.

Haverfordwest now top the table by 21 points from second placed Cresselly with the two teams playing each other in Cresselly this weekend (Jun 30) in what should be an excellent match.

The game between the two teams finished in a draw earlier in the season and it is likely to be another close game with both teams battling it out for the Division 1 title.

Also on Saturday, Whitland are at home as they take on Lawrenny and Neyland are away as they travel to Llangwm.

Kilgetty will look to pick up another win when they take on Burton while St Ishmaels are at home to Johnston.

Lamphey pull out of league

Published

on

LAMPHEY Football Club has announced that they have withdrawn their team from the Pembrokeshire Football League.

The Club has cited a lack of players as a reason for their withdrawal but they are now the third team to have done so in a short space of time.

Last season West Dragons and Angle took themselves out of the league for similar reasons.

It means their last match was an 11-1 defeat to Hakin United in the Senior Cup on Saturday (Nov 10) and their game with Goodwick this weekend has now been cancelled.

The Pembrokeshire Football League confirmed the news on their Facebook page saying: “Just to confirm that this morning the League received the sad news from Lamphey that they are withdrawing from the Pembrokeshire League with immediate effect.

“They are citing lack of players as the reasoning for their withdrawal. The League Tables will be amended accordingly.”

Lamphey had not won in their eight games played but had managed three draws. Those points will now be taken away and it is likely that only one team will be relegated from the first division.

Veteran Vikings on top

Published

on

HAKIN United are top of the Welsh Veterans League following a 6-0 victory over Nelson Cavaliers at the Observatory last Sunday (Nov 11).

The result puts the Vikings one point ahead of current Champions Trefelin BGC, with the Port Talbot outfit having a game in hand.

However, last Sunday, despite the final score, It was Nelson that were missing the early chances with Hakin goalkeeper Jason Morgan saving a one on one and a penalty before Hakin took the lead midway through the first half.

Stuart MacDonald broke down the left and set up Matthew Price for a tap in to make it 1-0.

Minutes later, Hakin doubled their lead as Michael McCarthy headed home a MacDonald corner.

Just before half time, McCarthy put Price in the clear and the striker hammered a shot into the bottom corner to make it 3-0.

Early in the second half, Nelson missed another penalty before Price set up McCarthy to score from close range.

Ali Davies put Leigh Walters through to lift the ball over the keeper for number five and the same two players combined again for Walters to score his second, beating the keeper at his post.

Hakin next play in the Welsh Veterans Cup Preliminary Round away to Pencoed Athletic on Sunday (Nov 25).

Hakin United: Jason Morgan, Gerard Gray, Nigel Delaney, Richard Bland, Adam Collins, Ali Davies, Shaun Mills, Richard Nash, Michael McCarthy, Leigh Waters, Leighton Edwards. Subs: Nigel Armstrong, Matthew Price, Stuart MacDonald, Jamie Phillips, Gary Dawes.

Blues too good for Neyland

Published

on

HAVERFORDWEST closed the gap to leaders Neyland as they condemned them to a second defeat in as many games on Saturday (Nov 10).

The Blues made a good start and it was Craig Barnett who put them into the lead with a try which he then converted. Barnett then added the extras for a 7-0 lead.

Haverfordwest continued to put the pressure on and Barnett extended their lead with a penalty.

Barnett then added two further penalties before half time to give his side a 16-0 lead at the break.

Both sides had chances to score at the start of the second half but errors meant the score stayed the same.

Patrick Bellerby came close to scoring for the All Blacks but Haverfordwest defended well to keep him out.

At the other end a Neyland clearance kick was blocked and kicked on with Barnett giving chase but he was beaten to the ball by Bellerby and Neyland were able to clear.

The visitors then went up the other end and came close to scoring but they gave the ball away. The referee was not happy with the scrums and after three attempts gave a penalty to Neyland from which Luke Griffiths-Dawes dived over. George Evans sent the resulting penalty wide.

Any thoughts Neyland had of making a comeback were quickly dashed as Jamie Zambas increased the home side’s lead with a converted try.

Neyland did pull another try back late on through Craig Power and Evans converted but it wasn’t enough as the Blues saw the game out.

The All Blacks are still top of the table but Haverfordwest are now just a point behind. Milford lie in third, two points behind with two games in hand on their rivals.

The teams are next in action on Saturday, November 24, when leaders Neyland travel to St Davids and Haverfordwest are also away to Llanybydder.
