NEYLAND snatched a late victory against Merlins Bridge to return to second place in the league. The game between the second and third placed teams was a hard-fought and close encounter but an error from the Bridge keeper in the final minute of injury time allowed Warlow to score the winning goal.

The win extends the Nomads’ unbeaten run to six games and they are now nine points behind leaders Hakin United. The first half was a very close and tense affair and neither side were able to create any real chances. Sean Hannon hit the crossbar midway through the half but that was the closest either side came and it was still 0-0 at the break. The Wizards dominated possession in the second half but could not find a route to goal as Neyland defended well.

Both sides were restricted to long range efforts which were easily gathered by the keepers. Then with seconds to spare Andrew Kemp played a one-two with Michael Chandler but Kemp scuffed his cross into the air. The Wizards keeper misjudged the flight of the ball missing it which allowed Nathan Warlow to head in and give Neyland victory. Merlins Bridge will feel harddone by and will look to bounce back next week (Feb 21) as they take on a struggling Johnston side. Neyland: Aaron McQuillan, Andrew Kemp, Gary Power, Henry Durrant, Jeremy Evans, Mike Chandler, Nathan Warlow, Nick Koomen, Patrick Hannon, Paul Hannon, Scott Jones, Sean Hannon, Wayne Parry.

Cresselly hold off Llangwm to reach Harrison Allen semis

Published

on

CRESSELLY made it through to the semi-finals of the Harrison Allen Bowl on Tuesday night (Jun 22) as they beat Llangwm by three runs.

The visitors batted first and made a good score of 165-5 from their 22 overs.

Llangwm won the toss and elected to field but they saw Cresselly openers Dan Sutton and Alex Bayley share 43 runs for the first wicket.

Bayley departed as he was caught by Phil Llewellyn off the bowling of Noah Davies on a score of 17.

Sutton was joined by Iwan Izzard and the pair shared an excellent second-wicket stand worth 96 runs.

Both reached their half centuries in that stand but it was eventually broken by Chris Inward who had Izzard caught by Richard Brock.

Izzard had thumped four fours and five sixes in his score of 59 from just 37 balls.

Llangwm began to hit back as Joe Phillips had Ryan Lewis caught by Joe Kiff and Sutton was then run out.

Sutton hit five fours and two sixes in his score of 57 and his wicket left the score on 158-4.

Matthew Morgan made a late score of 15 but he was bowled by Phillips as Llangwm gave themselves a target of 166 to win the game.

Their reply did not get off to the best of starts though as Joe Kiff was caught by Matthew Morgan off the bowling of Tom Murphy.

Phil Llewellyn and Steven Mills shared 24 runs for the second wicket but Ryan Lewis had Llewellyn stumped by Neilson Cole on a score of 20.

Mills made a score of 18 but he was bowled by Charlie Arthur as Llangwm slipped to 67-3.

Luke Brock and Matthew Kiff then shared 68 runs for the fourth wicket to keep Llangwm very much in the game.

Brock smashed his way to a score of 59 from 27 balls with three fours and five sixes but he was caught by Tom Arthur off the bowling of Lewis.

There was some big hitting in the Llangwm innings but they fell just short

Kiff hit six fours and two sixes in a score of 41 from 24 balls as the home side looked to bring the required run rate down.

However, Kiff was then bowled by Tom Arthur to reduce Llangwm to 148-5.

Chris Inward took the score to 155 with a maximum but he was bowled on the next ball by Charlie Arthur.

He did the same to Richard Brock soon after and when Tom Murphy had Noah Davies caught by Tom  Arthur, Llangwm’s chances of victory had all but gone.

With the score on 158-8, Ollie Davies could only add four more to the total meaning Cresselly were victorious by just three runs.
