Champions see off Town



NEYLAND cemented their position as Division 1 Champions on Saturday (Aug 17) as they beat Haverfordwest by five wickets.

Town had reached 71-2 in the nineteenth over and looked well set to go on and make a good score with Danny Potter having reached his half century.

However, his wicket sparked a collapse as Town crumbled to 102 all out inside 39 overs.

Town did their best to pull off a surprise win as they took five Neyland wickets but Ross Hardy kept his nerve to see Neyland over the line.

Neyland won the toss and elected to field and they saw Danny Potter and Mike Jones shared 28 runs for the first wicket inside the first ten overs.

Banner then bowled Mike Jones and soon after, Nick Koomen trapped Simon Holliday leg before on a score of 12 that included a four and a six.

Potter and Dai Davies shared another 24 runs for the third wicket before Potter, who hit nine fours in his score of 53, was caught by George Evans off the bowling of Andrew Miller.

That left Town on 71-3 and it soon became 80-4 when Miller had Davies caught by Koomen.

Ross Hardy then trapped Ben Field leg before and with the very next ball did the same to Dan Field to plunge Town further intro trouble on 80-6.

Hardy then claimed his third wicket when he had Jack Scriven stumped by Sean Hannon and Miller then claimed his third as he had Lee Summons caught by Ashley Sutton.

That left Town on 82-8 but Ashley James and Simon Williams offered some late resistance.

James scored 16 but then saw himself caught by Sutton off the bowling of Tom Pritchard.

The same bowler then brought the innings to a close as he bowled Williams, giving Neyland a target of 103 for victory.

The home side lost Henry Durrant early in their reply when he was caught by Jack Scriven off the bowling of Ashley James.

Nick Koomen and Geraint Rees then shared 41 runs for the second wicket as they moved closer to their target.

Clive Tucker then had Koomen caught by Lee Summons on a score of 22 and soon after he had Rees caught by Danny Potter.

Simon Holliday then had Ashley Sutton caught by Jack Scriven and when Holliday bowled George Evans, Neyland had slipped to 63-5.

However, Ross Hardy and Nathan Banner held their nerve to see Neyland to victory.

Banner hit four fours as his score of 19 came from 18 balls while Hardy was not out on 34 from 24 balls, the last of his four sixes winning the game for the Champions.

After the game, Neyland were presented with the Division 1 trophy by County Chairman Paul Webb and sponsors representative Brian Hawkins.

On Saturday (Aug 24), Neyland will look to round their season off in style as they travel to Whitland.

Town will look to keep hold of fifth place as they take on fourth placed Carew.

HAKIN United won the Joe Lennon Cup on Saturday (Aug 17) as they beat Milford Athletic 12-1 in the final.

The game had been scheduled for Friday (Aug 16) but heavy rain meant the game had to be moved to Saturday which left a number of Athletic players unable to take part because of other commitments.

Earlier in the week, both sides had won their respective semi-finals on penalties with Hakin beating Milford United while Milford Athletic beat Herbrandston.

On Saturday it was Nicky Woodrow who gave Hakin the lead but Thomas Parker levelled for the Athletic.

Woodrow claimed his fourth before the break to give the Vikings a 5-1 lead and to give them one hand on the trophy.

Shane Walsh made the score 8-1 before a deflected Adam John strike made it nine.

Ryan Wilson finished at the back post to take their score into double figures.

Scott Reid then missed with an acrobatic effort but the ball came back to him and he poked in to make it 11-1.

Camron Thomas then completed the scoring as he linked up with Justin Harding before rounding the keeper and tapping in to make it 12-1.

After the game, Leon Luby was named man of the match for his five assists while Ewan Findlay lifted the Joe Lennon trophy.
