Published

LAWRENNY upset the odds once again as they beat leaders Haverfordwest to deal a blow to their Division 1 title hopes on Saturday (Jul 7).

Haverfordwest sat joint top with Cresselly going into the weekend’s games but were well aware that their opponents had already beaten Cresselly and Neyland earlier in the season.

Town scored 219-9 in their innings with Lee Summons top scoring on 62 and Simon Holliday adding 34.

Ian Jenkins and Ryan Morton both took three wickets for Lawrenny before Steve Campbell finished not out on 67 to help his side reach 220-6.

That win meant Cresselly went top after they beat bottom side Johnston by six wickets. Johnston batted first but were all out for 120 with Gino Cleal scoring 26.

Sam Harts took four wickets and Tom Arthur took three before Dan James finished not out on 42 to help his side over the line.

Neyland sit third in the Division but they could only draw their game at home to Burton. Neyland batted well as they reached a total of 246-7 thanks to scores of 50 from Sean Hannon and 50 not out from Nathan Banner.

Toby Hayman then scored 83 in Burton’s reply but they finished their innings on 196-7.

Fourth placed Whitland failed to take advantage of Neyland’s slip up as they were beaten by Llangwm. Whitland were all out for 151 in their innings as Noah and Ollie Davies took seven wickets between them.

Phil Llewellyn then scored 51 for Llangwm and Matthew Kiff scored 47 as they reached their target with three wickets in hand.

St Ishmaels pulled themselves further away from the bottom two as they beat Kilgetty by seven wickets.

Kilgetty batted first and were all out for 170 with Kurtish Marsh top scoring on 70. Daniel Flynn took five wickets for Tish and Andrew Williams also took three.

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LAMPHEY Football Club has announced that they have withdrawn their team from the Pembrokeshire Football League.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