Town hold off Neyland in Harrison Allen



HAVERFORDWEST booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Harrison Allen Bowl on Tuesday night as they beat Neyland by 19 runs.

Neyland have proved a bogey-side for Town in recent cup matches between the two and the 2016 Bowl winners will be pleased to have overcome their opponents.

Neyland won the toss but invited Town to bat first and openers Simon Holliday and Ben Field shared 44 runs in the first nine overs.

Field was out for a score of 18 when he was caught by Gregg Miller off the bowling of Geraint Rees.

In the twelfth over, Summons was stumped by Sean Hannon off the bowling of Andrew Miller.

Soon after, Mike Jones was caught by Will Hughes off the bowling of Andrew Miller.

Rees then picked up his second wicket as Danny Potter was again stumped by Hannon.

That left Town on 101-4 in the seventeenth over but Holliday and Adam James took over and began to pile on the runs.

They shared 60 runs in the final five overs with James hitting five fours and a six in his knock of 38 from 24 balls.

Holliday, continuing his fine league form, reached another half century and went on to finish unbeaten on 83 with eight fours and four sixes.

That meant Neyland would need 162 to win but they lost Nick Koomen in the fourth ball of their reply when he was caught by Jake Merry off the bowling of Adam James.

Ashley Sutton and Gregg Miller shared 27 runs for the second wicket but Sutton was then caught by Ben Field off the bowling of Evan Watts.

Miller was joined by Henry Durrant in the middle and the pair took Neyland to 87-2 inside the fifteenth over.

Miller had made a good score of 30 but he was then trapped leg before by Clive Tucker.

George Evans was next to fall as he was caught by Archie Thomas off the bowling of James.

Durrant had scored 37 from 33 balls with three fours and a six but he was then bowled by Tucker and Neyland’s hopes of victory began to fade.

Sean Hannon hit a six with the only ball he faced but he was then run out by James as they slipped to 121-6.

Tucker then claimed his third wicket as Thomas made an excellent running catch on the boundary to dismiss Andrew Miller.

That all but sealed the win for Town as Callum Power finished not out on 13 and Geraint Rees finished not out on 6 but it wasn’t enough.

The win sees Town through and they will now look forward to seeing who they will play in the last 8.


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.
