Dock celebrate Allan Brown success

Published

on

PEMBROKE Dock lifted the Allan Brown trophy on Sunday (Jul 1), as they beat Lamphey in what was an excellent final held in Whitland.

Lamphey batted first but could only reach 107 before the Dock scored 161 in their first innings to lead by 54 runs.

Lamphey were then bowled out for 133 in their second innings meaning the Dock would need just 80 to win the game. They passed their target with nine wickets still in hand to spark celebrations amongst the Dock’s players and supporters.

The Stags won the toss and chose to bat but they lost opener Nick Johnson for a score of 9 when he was caught by Jamie White off the bowling of Billy Wood.

Scott Brunton was also out cheaply when he was bowled by Wood.

Lewis Haines played well for his score of 35 before also being bowled by White and James Skeels scored 19 before being bowled by Nick Daley.

Daley and White both picked up more wickets while Nick Shelmerdine finished the innings not out on 22 to take his side to an opening total of 107-7.

Daley was the pick of the bowlers taking three wickets for the loss of 22 runs while White took two wickets for the loss of 23.

Pembroke Dock began their reply well with Luke Murray making 10 before he was caught by Nick Johnson off the bowling of Hywel Gibbs.

Jake Griffiths batted well as he made 33 before being bowled by Peter McGilloway.

Nick Daley scored 26 before being bowled by James Skeels who later bowled Rob Hearn for a score of 1.

Peter Kingdom made 15 before also being bowled by McGilloway and Scott Griffiths was then run out on a score of 8 as Lamphey tried to restrict Pembroke Dock’s lead.

However, Billy Wood finished not out on 32 as he helped the Dock post 161-7 from their opening twenty overs, a lead of 54 runs.

Gibbs and James Skeels both finished with identical of 2-33 from their five overs.

Lamphey knew they would need to start well in their reply to make up that difference but Lewis Haines was bowled early on by Wood and Nick Johnson only scored 13 before being trapped leg before by John Camani.

James Skeels made 9 before he was caught by Craig Butland off the bowling of Jamie White but Scott Brunton and Peter McGilloway played well together as they shared 58 runs for the fourth wicket.

McGilloway smashed his way to 32 but he was then bowled by Daley and Nick Shelmerdine followed in similar fashion moments later.

Billy Wood then bowled Tom Powell and Grant Cole was bowled by Rob Hearn as the Dock hit back.

Scott Brunton made an excellent score of 43 but he was then stumped by Scott Griffiths and the same bowled then removed Gibbs for a duck to finish with excellent figures of 4-25.

Lamphey’s total was helped along by 27 extras as they were all out for 133, meaning Pembroke Dock would need just 80 to win the final.

The Dock lost Jake Griffiths as he was caught and bowled by James Skeels but Lamphey were unable to take any further wickets.

They were also guilty of giving away 25 extras before Luke Murray and Nick Daley guided their side to their target.

Daley finished not out on 9 but Luke Murray was the star of the show as he finished unbeaten on 43.

It sealed an excellent nine-wicket win for the Dock and afterwards captain Nick Daley was presented with the trophy and was also named the man of the match.

Collins’ stunner earns win for Veterans

Published

on

A STUNNING strike from Hakin left back Adam Collins ensured that the Veteran Vikings earned maximum points and remain top of the Welsh Veterans League after a hard fought 4-3 win at home to Coedeva Athletic last Sunday (Feb 17).

However, on a very windy day, the Vikings found themselves behind early on as Gareth Hinwood scored from the penalty spot.

Hakin were soon level though, when Stuart MacDonald set up Matthew Price to score from close range.

Richard Nash gave Hakin the lead scoring via a deflection and Paul Andrews levelled matters for Coedeva before the break, as his shot from distance also took a deflection.

Early in the second half, Michael McCarthy beat the Coedeva keeper to a ball to make it 3-2 from close range and almost immediately, Coedeva were level after another Gareth Hinwood penalty.

Inside the final quarter, a stunning left footed strike from Adam Collins found the top corner from distance to give Hakin the win.

Hakin next play on Sunday, March 3, at home to Swansea University in the semi-final of the Welsh Veterans Cup.

Hakin United: Jason Morgan, Nigel Armstrong, Richard Bland, Nigel Delaney, Adam Collins, Shaun Mills, Richard Nash, Stuart MacDonald, Michael McCarthy, Matthew Price, Leighton Edwards. Subs: Leigh Walters, Simon Rocke, Jamie Phillips, Gary Dawes.

Saints do the double

Published

on

ST CLEARS completed the double over Neyland as they earned a 4-0 win on Saturday (Feb 16).

The Saints, who were forced into a re-shuffle at the back and without one of their midfielders, had beaten them 5-2 at home the previous week and Neyland would have been looking for some revenge.

However, it was the Saints who started strongly and took a deserved lead from a short corner. Jonny Thomas found Steve Thomas unmarked in the box and he headed home.

Both teams had chances to score but Saints keeper James Dickson made a few good saves to keep their 1-0 lead in tact.

The visitors eventually got the second goal of the game following good individual play by Will Evans.

Evans then added his second directly from a free kick to make it 3-0. They then rounded off a good day as Sean Seymour Davies latched onto a long ball to score and make it 4-0.

On Saturday (Feb 23), Neyland are away to Goodwick while St Clears welcome Merlins Bridge.

Jones’ late drop goal earns win for Blues

Published

on

HAVERFORDWEST moved up to second place in League 3 West A on Saturday (Feb 16), as they beat Neyland with a late drop goal.

It was a tight game with both sides battling well but it was the Blues who went ahead early on as Craig Barnett scored a penalty.

Barnett then scored another soon after to put the visitors into a 0-6 lead and it remained that way until the half time whistle.

Early in the second half Neyland were back in it as they scored a penalty to make the score 3-6.

Mark Riley then put Neyland ahead as he was credited with a pushover try but the conversion was missed and the All Blacks led by two points.

Haverfordwest pushed on looking for a winning score and when a try wasn’t forthcoming the ball was sent back to Mikey Jones who kept calm to send a drop goal through the posts.

That put the Blues one point ahead at 8-9 and there was little time for the home side to respond.

The All Blacks do pick up the consolation of a losing bonus point but that will not do much to lift their spirits after they were dropped to fourth in the table following other results.

The Blues now sit second with Aberaeron breathing down their necks having played three games less.

There is no game on Saturday (Feb 23), as Wales take on England at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

The sides return to action on Saturday, March 2, when Haverfordwest host Llanybydder and Neyland host St Davids.
