Llecrhyd settle for draw



LLECHRYD were forced to settle for a draw in their game with Haverfordwest Seconds in Division 2 on Saturday (Jun 1).

Haverfordwest won the toss but elected to field and they watched on as the visitors posted a good score of 206-6 from their 45 overs.

They lost John Curran early on when he was bowled by Evan Watts but James Betterley and Jonny Lewis shared a second wicket stand worth 56 runs.

Lewis scored 18 but he was then bowled by Lewis Rhead. Betterley hit eight fours as he scored 39 but he was then stumped by Jack Evans off the bowling of Rhead, leaving Llechryd on 73-3.

Steve Smith and Joe Mansfield then shared an excellent stand of 81 for the fourth wicket to set Llechryd on their way to their total.

Mansfield hit six fours in his knock of 42 but he was then bowled by James Marchant.

Smith and Rhys Beard then shared another good stand of 37 runs as they got closer to 200 runs.

Smith hit six fours as he reached 50 but he was then also bowled by Marchant.

Beard batted on as he hit three fours and a six in his knock of 31 from 27 balls but off the last ball of the innings he was caught off the bowling Watts.

That set Town’s second team 207 to win but they lost opener Max Rodrigues early in their reply when he was bowled by Rhys Beard.

Jack Evans was also bowled by James Betterley and James Marchant fell in similar fashion to the same bowler on a score of 17.

Those wickets left Town on 45-3 but Nigel Morgan and Filgi Varghese set about trying to put their side in a better position.

They shared 25 runs together but Morgan was then caught by Andrew Davies off the bowling of Betterley on a score of 30.

Joe Mansfield then ran out Jamie Jenkins as Town were reduced to 84-5.

Filgi and Evan Watts shared 59 runs for the sixth wicket but that was brought to an end when Adam Betts caught Filgi on a score of 32 to give John Curran his first wicket.

Curran then picked up a second as he had Ashley James caught by Rhys Beard. That left Evan Watts not out on 27 but it wasn’t enough to see Town to victory as they finished on 149-7, over 50 runs short of their target.

The draw sees Llechryd pick up 28 points while Town claim six for their efforts.

On Saturday (Jun 8), Llechryd are at home to Pembroke and Haverfordwest Seconds are away to Cresselly Seconds.


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.
