The win takes Neyland into third place in the league while Angle remain third from bottom.

Despite their lowly position, Angle started well but they could not find a way to goal and Neyland’s quality shone through in the end.

Tom Grimwood laid the ball off for Chris Richards in the sixth minute of the game but his low shot was saved.

With twenty minutes gone the visitors had a great chance to take the lead when Lee Brockway’s corner was punched towards the back post by Neyland’s keeper but Gareth Howells headed the ball against the post.

Lee Brockway also saw a free kick go narrowly wide mid-way through the first half and that seemed to act as a wake-up call for the home side.

With thirty minutes gone Neyland took the lead against the run of play as a long throw into the area fell to Gary Power who put the ball in the back of the net.

Just three minutes later they doubled their lead. A free kick from Michael Chandler bounced down off the underside of the bar and the ball was cleared to the edge of the box to Neyland’s Henry Durrant who fired the ball into the net.

The home side had a number of chances to add a third as the half drew to a close but Neyland were able to keep the score at 2-0.

Ten minutes into the second half Neyland did add a third goal as another long throw in from Michael Chandler was headed into the corner of the net by Wayne Parry.

Chandler continued to cause problems with his long throw-ins and three minutes later they could have had a fourth goal but Angle’s defenders were able to clear the danger.

With fifteen minutes to go Angle had a chance to get a goal back but after Darren Shaw sent the ball back across goal Craig Brockway headed the ball over.

The Nomads had a good chance to add a fourth in the closing stages but Gary Power’s header was saved.

Neyland are at home again next week as they welcome Johnston while Angle are also at home to Goodwick.

Neyland book place in last 16 of Village Cup

Published

on

NEYLAND are through to the last 16 of the National Village Cup after they beat West Midlands side Milford Hall on Sunday (Jun 20).

They made the long trip up on Sunday morning having not played in the league the day before and were looking forward to their game.

Neyland won the toss and elected to field first but their opponents made a good score of 191-6 from their 40 overs.

There were wickets early on for Henry Durrant and Nathan Banner which left Milford on 8-2 but Aaron Afford and James Davis dug in for the home side.

They shared 58 runs for the third wicket but that partnership was broken by Patrick Bellerby who ran out Afford on a score of 36.

Ross Hardy then got in on the act as he claimed his first wicket of the day to reduce Milford to 71-4.

Another good stand worth 80 runs between Davis and captain Stuart Phazey followed as they looked to set up a strong total.

The partnership was eventually broken by Jack John who had Davis caught by Bellerby on a score of 49.

Phazey had reached his half century moments earlier as he hit eight fours and a six in a score of 55 but he was then caught by George Evans off the bowling of Brad McDermott-Jenkins.

Tom Eley then finished unbeaten on 21 and Kevin Royce finished not out on 16 as they set Neyland a target of 192 to win the game.

Neyland also lost two wickets at the start of their reply as Chris Dean removed both Patrick Bellerby and Ashley Sutton.

Nathan Banner and Nick Koomen looked to steady the innings and they shared 47 runs for the third wicket.

Banner was then stumped off the bowling of Ron Firth on a score of 24.

Ross Hardy then joined Koomen in the middle and they shared another forty runs for the fourth wicket.

Hardy hit three fours and a six in his score of 23 but he was then caught off the bowling of Stuart Phazey.

Koomen continued to put runs on the board and was joined by Henry Durrant, with the pair adding another 54 runs on the board.

Koomen had hit nine fours in his score of 66 but he was then bowled by Phazey to leave Neyland on 145-5.

Durrant and Brad McDermott-Jenkins then added another 31 runs as Neyland edged closer to victory.

McDermott-Jenkins smashed three sixes and a four in a score of 24 from 11 balls but he then fell to the bowling of Aaron Afford.

Afford then had Durrant caught on a score of 20 to reduce Neyland to 180-7.

Sean Hannon and Andrew Miller then took over with Hannon reaching a score of 8 before the final over.

Miller grabbed two off the second ball meaning they needed just one more to win. Off the next ball Miller hit a four to win the game for Neyland.

After the game, Sean Hannon said: “Delighted by the win, home advantage is obviously key in this competition but thankfully we travelled with a strong team and it paid.

“The boys done brilliantly well to win the game and it was pleasing to see everyone chipping in with runs or wickets.”
