Llechryd storm to the top

Published

on

LLECHRYD’s Rhys Beard took seven wickets as they dismantled Pembroke in Division 2 on Saturday (Jun 8).

None of Pembroke’s batsmen could reach double figures as they were bowled out for just 31 runs inside twenty overs.

Paul White scored 5 before he was caught by Andrew Fletcher to give Beard his first wicket.

Beard also bowled Sam Davies for a duck and he then did the same to Jonathan Rogers who had scored 8.

That left them on 21-3 but it soon became 22-7 as Beard and John Curran ripped through the middle order.

Curran trapped Jamie Kaijaks leg before for a duck and he then claimed a caught and bowled. Jake Harris scored 7 but he was then caught by Fletcher off Beard’s bowling once again.

Beard then bowled George Davies for a duck and also trapped Aiden Fraser leg before.

Graham Keen then had Jack Smythe caught by James Betterley for a duck and the innings came to a close when Beard had Paul Francis caught by Betterley.

Beard’s stunning bowling meant he finished with excellent figures of 7-14.

James Betterley and John Curran then wasted little time in knocking off the runs needed as they took just 5.1 overs to reach their target.

Betterley finished not out on 9 while Curran was unbeaten on 19.

The win sees Llechryd move to the top of Division 2, now twenty points clear of second placed Narberth.

On Saturday (Jun 15), Llechryd travel to Pembroke Dock while Pembroke will look to bounce back when they travel to Hook.

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.
