Pembrokeshire Cricket: Division 1 Round up

Published

on

ON Saturday (Jun 2), in Division 1 of the Pembroke County Cricket League, there was a surprise result as Lawrenny beat leaders Neyland.

Lawrenny were bowled out for 120 in their innings Patrick Elliott scored 31 and Joe Kidney added 26 as the visitors recovered from being 65-5.

Henry Durrant and Andrew Miller each took three wickets for the home side as it looked like they would go on to earn a seventh win in a row.

However, Neyland could not reach their target as they were all out for 94! Rob Williams and Brad McDermott-Jenkins did the damage for Lawrenny taking nine wickets between them.

The Division 1 relegation battle at Johnston saw Kilgetty Cricket Club reach 63-2 off the first 15 overs.

They went on to reach a total of 216-4 thanks to a score of 78 from Dafydd Bevan!

Johnston came close to teaching their target but finished on 196-9 meaning their game ended in a draw. Gino Cleal top scored for Johnston with a score of 87.

Cresselly are now eight points behind leaders Neyland as they beat Whitland by seven wickets!

Whitland batted first and were all out for 164 with Dylan Blain top scoring on 85. Tom Arthur was in fine form for the home as he took seven Whitland wickets.

Cresselly’s Dan Sutton then finished not out on 99 as he guided his team to a seven wicket win!

Simon Holliday was again in fine form as he hit another century to help Haverfordwest to a nine wicket win over St Ishmaels.

Tish batted first and scored 189-8 with Philip Cockburn scoring 40 and Andrew Williams adding 45.

Holliday took three wickets and then went on to score 111 not out while Lee Summons finished not out on 60 as Town secured a comfortable win.

Llangwm earned a 4-wicket win over Burton thanks to Will Beresford who finished not out on 69.

Burton were all out for 140 in their innings with Robbie Neil and James Davies both scoring 30. Chris Inward took four wickets for Llangwm while Ollie Davies also took two.

In their reply, Beresford was supported well by James Venables who scored 36 and although there were wickets from James Davies and Morgan Scale it wasn’t enough to stop Llangwm taking the win.

Neyland’s defeat has allowed both Cresselly and Haverfordwest to close the gap with only ten points separating the top three.

Whitland sit behind them in fourth while at the other end, Kilgetty’s draw has taken them out of the bottom two and they have been replaced by St Ishmaels.

On Saturday, June 9, Burton host Johnston, Kilgetty make a short trip to take on Cresselly and Llangwm host Haverfordwest.

St Ishmaels take on Lawrenny while leaders Neyland will look to bounce back when they travel to Whitland.

On Sunday (Jun 10), Cresselly travel to Bronwydd in the Dyfed area Final of the National Village Cup.

Blues battle to win over Aberaeron in KO Cup

Published

on

HAVERFORDWEST booked their place in the quarter finals of the Pembrokeshire KO Cup, where they will meet Pembroke Dock Harlequins, after beating Aberaeron on Wednesday night (Oct 20).

Despite the atrocious weather conditions, which saw rain batter the Pembroke Road playing surface for much of the game, both sides played an excellent game.

In the end it was the Blues who came out on top with a 44-6 win.

Outside Half Jake Morgan got the Blues rolling early on with a penalty and Rhys Baker then scored the game’s first try to make it 8-0.

Second Row Jack Clancy got his name on the score sheet but the conversion was missed.

Aberaeron then got themselves on the board with a penalty but the Blues were soon back on the attack with Will Blackburn next to go over.

That was converted by Morgan to give the home side a 20-3 lead.

Lewis Tingay and Rhys Baker added further tries for the Blues while Aber added a further penalty as the sides went in at half time with the score reading 30-6.

Early in the second half Tingay added his second try of the night and Morgan added the conversion.

That all but ended any hopes the away side had of getting themselves back in the game and the Blues continued to play despite the pouring rain.

Tingay then completed his hat trick with a try under the posts giving Morgan a simple conversion to make it 44-6.

There was no scoring in the final twenty minutes but the Blues had done the job and booked their place in the last eight.

Their quarter final with the Quins will be played on or before January 22.
