Champions shock defeat at Llanrhian



Llanrhian (152-7) beat Neyland (147-10) LLANDIGIGE FAWR was the scene of the shock of the day as Llanrhian were able to bowl out Neyland, and claim an unlikely victory in what is undoubtedly one of the biggest wins for Llanrhian is recent memory. 

Llanrhian began the day batting with Ben Jones and Gareth Davies in the middle. Both made steady starts with Jones reaching 16 and Davies 15, but some typical tight bowling from Neyland allowed Andrew Miller and Henry Durrant to take the opening pairs wickets. Only Dominic Wright (15) and Geraint Morris (10) troubled the scorers before Jack Jones and Matthew Bennett supplied an anchoring force in the middle as Bennett top scored with 41 before being caught by Gregg Miller off Nick Koomen’s bowling. Jack Jones ended undefeated on 30. Llanrhian were able to get to 152-7 off their 45 overs as Andrew Miller finished with figures of 3-30 and Nick Koomen with 2-28. Neyland, who on any other day would have chased down the target, got off to a shaky start as Gregg Miller was caught behind by Ben Jones off Mathew Bennett’s bowling for a duck. And Neyland soon saw themselves struggling at 48 for 6. Scott Jones provided 41 runs for his side, but Llanrhian were in the driving seat and Luke Jones’ 4 for 27 and Mathew Bennett’s 3 for 42 helped guide Llanrhian to a memorable victory against last year’s treble winners. Llanrhian innings Ben Jones bl Andrew Miller 16 Gareth Davies bl Henry Durrant 15 Dominic Wright ct Nathan Banner bl Andrew Miller 15 Geraint Morris bl Gary Lloyd 10 Luke Jones ct Nick Koomen bl Andrew Miller 0 Jack Jones not out 30 Matthew Bennett ct Gregg Miller bl Nick Koomen 41 Adam Phillips bl Nick Koomen 0 Rhys Price not out 7 Extras 18 Total (for 7 wkts)152 Neyland bowling: Nathan Banner 12-3-0-36; Henry Durrant 12-3-1-22; Andrew Miller 9-1-3-30; Gary Lloyd 7-0-1-22; Nick Koomen 5-0-2-28. Neyland innings Gregg Miller ct Ben Jones bl Mathew Bennett 0 Paul Murray lbw Luke Jones 2 Nathan Banner bl Mathew Bennett 5 Ashley Sutton lbw Luke Jones 12 Nick Koomen ct Adam Phillips bl Luke Jones 13 Andrew Miller ct James Morris bl Luke Jones 6 Sean Hannon ct Luke Jones bl Gareth Davies 18 Scott Jones run out Gareth Davies 41 Paul Miller bl Mathew Bennett 14 Henry Durrant not out 26 Gary Lloyd lbw bl Dominic Wright 3 Extras 7 Total 147 Llanrhian bowling: Mathew Bennett 12-0-3-42; Luke Jones 12-5-4-27; Dominic Wright 12-1-1-46; Jack Jones 2-0-0-6; Gareth Davies 6-2-1- 21.
