2019 cricket fixtures released



THE Pembroke County Cricket Club has released the fixtures for the forthcoming 2019 season.

Division 1 Champions Neyland begin the defence of their title with a trip to Cresselly who finished as runners up last season after being beaten by Lawrenny in their final game.

Division 2 Champions Carew are back in the big league after a season away and they begin away to Llangwm.

Saundersfoot are also back in Division 1 and they start with a home game against St Ishmaels.

Elsewhere, Haverfordwest are away to Burton, Lawrenny are at home to Whitland.

The two sides relegated from Division 1, Kilgetty and Johnston, face each other in Division 2 while Division 3 champions Carew Seconds are at home to Narberth.

Pembroke begin their season with a trip to Haverfordwest Seconds while Hook take on Llechryd and promoted Pembroke Dock host Cresselly Seconds.

Herbrandston just missed out on promotion from Division 3 last season and this year they start at home against Division 4 Champions Laugharne.

Llangwm Seconds were also promoted from Division 4 and they begin their Division 3 campaign away to Haverfordwest Thirds.

Lamphey host Llanrhian, Narberth Seconds take on relegated Stackpole and fellow relegated side Whitland Seconds are at home to Lawrenny Seconds.

Division 5 Champions Carew Thirds begin life in Division 4 at home to Crymych. Haverfordwest Fourths also went up after a successful 2018 season and they start this year with a trip to Neyland Seconds.

Llanrhian Seconds host Burton Seconds, Llechryd Seconds take on Hook Seconds and St Ishmaels Seconds are at home to Saundersfoot Seconds.

In Division 5, Hundleton host Kilgetty Seconds, Neyland Thirds are at home to Whitland Thirds and Pembroke Seconds face Herbrandston Seconds.

Finally, Stackpole Seconds are at home to Pembroke Dock Seconds.

Week 1 of the 2019 season is set to get underway on Sunday, April 28. Following that, cricket returns to its normal Saturdays from May 4.

Carew’s first fixture with Cresselly comes on June 15 with the return game in Carew on the penultimate weekend of the season.

Carew will also look forward to derby games with Lawrenny on the second weekend and on July 6.

Cresselly will be hoping the ghosts of 2018 will not be returning as they face Lawrenny in the last game of the season, just as they did last year.

Lawrenny had a big say in the title race and they also face Haverfordwest and Neyland in two of their four end-of-season games.

Pembroke Dock will not have to wait long for their first derby of the season as they travel to Pembroke in the second week. The other fixture in the Dock takes place on July 6.

Pembroke and Pembroke Dock’s Second teams will also contest their Division 5 derby games on the same dates.

Good luck to all sides.


Blues battle to win over Aberaeron in KO Cup



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.
