LAWRENNY are through to the semi-finals of the Duggie Morris Cup after beating Neyland by seven wickets on Friday night (Jun 11).

It means there will be a new name on the trophy for the first time since 2017 after Neyland won the 2018 and 2019 tournaments. The Duggie Morris was not played in 2020.

Rain had caused the game to be postponed on Thursday and it was no surprise when Lawrenny elected to field on winning the toss on Friday.

It left the holders on 18-2 but Gregg Miller and Nathan Banner rebuilt the innings with a fine stand of 72 for the third wicket.

Miller hit four fours and a six in a score of 40 from 32 balls but he was then caught by Joe Kidney off the bowling of Kurtis Marsh.

That sparked a mini-collapse as Neyland soon found themselves on 93-5.

Banner had hit two fours and a six in his score of 30 but he was caught off the bowling of Ryan Morton and soon after, Ross Hardy fell in similar fashion.

The runs seemed to dry up for Neyland and Morton soon claimed the wickets of Brad McDermott-Jenkins and Sean Hannon to take the score to 110-7. Morton’s excellent bowling saw him claim figures of 4-31.

Patrick Hannon and George Evans finished not out on scores of 5 and 8 respectively as they helped Neyland to 123-7 from their 20 overs.

In reply, Harry Thomas and Kurtis Marsh shared an opening stand of 50 runs to put the home side in a strong position.

Brad McDermott-Jenkins made the breakthrough for Neyland as he had Thomas caught by Nathan Banner on a score of 24.

Ross Hardy then trapped James Phillips leg before for a second ball duck to take the score to 51-2.

Marsh and Steve Lewis then shared another 43 runs as they edged Lawrenny towards their target.

Marsh reached his half century but then saw Lewis caught by Banner off the bowling of Jack John on a score of 11.

That was as good as it got for Neyland as Marsh and Ryan Morton took Lawrenny to victory.

Morton hit two fours and a six in a score of 20 from 18 balls but Marsh was the star of the innings with nine fours and a six in a score of 65 from 45 balls.

Lawrenny will now play Llangwm in the semi-final at Pembroke Dock in the week commencing June 28.
