Fenton and Tavernspite march on to finals

Published

on

THE popularity of girls’ cricket in Pembrokeshire is continuing to grow – with a record 24 schools fielding teams in this year’s Girls Kwik Cricket Finals.

The finals were held at Haverfordwest and Carew cricket clubs, with eleven schools from north Pembrokeshire competing at Haverfordwest and thirteen schools from the south of the county competing at Carew.

At the end of the competitive and enjoyable events, Fenton CP School and Tavernspite CP School were declared winners and will go forward to the regional Welsh finals at Sophia Gardens on July 8.

The festivals were organised by Sport Pembrokeshire – the sports development team at Pembrokeshire County Council – and sponsored by Valero.

Martin Jones, cricket development officer at Sport Pembrokeshire, praised the quality and spirit of play at both events.

Fenton: Moving on to the finals

The festival at Haverfordwest saw Fenton CP School, Roch Community School, Neyland Community School and Cleddau Reach VC School reaching the semi-finals.

Fenton defeated Roch and Cleddau Reach beat Neyland, before Fenton defeated Cleddau Reach due to some sensible batting and solid bowling backed up with some good catches. 

The south county festival at Carew saw Tavernspite CP School, St Oswalds VA School, Stepaside CP School and Golden Grove Community School reaching the semi-finals.

Tavernspite beat St Oswalds while Stepaside beat Golden Grove. Both schools were undefeated at this stage with Tavernspite running out as winners in the end.

It was a great team effort,” said Martin Jones. “A special mention goes to the captain, Caitlin Lewis, who had an excellent festival and also celebrated her birthday.”

He said it was also good to see key figures from women’s cricket attending the Carew festival – Laura Charles Price, the South West Wales Women’s and Girls Co-ordinator, and Rachel Priest, a Kiwi who plays for Thunder in the Ladies Big Bash League.

Cleddau Reach: Semi-finalists

Martin added “It’s excellent to see the growth of girls’ cricket not only at primary school level but also in the Lady Taverners competition (U13’s and U15’s). All of this has helped the growth of the Ladies cricket league in Pembrokeshire, which now has nine teams.”

Valero’s Public Affairs Manager Stephen Thornton presented the medals to the finalists.

The Fenton squad was made up of: Chloe Dewstowe (captain), Ami Louise Richards, Kiera Ribbon, Bethan Stobbs, Beatrix Nicklin, Jenny Frayling, and Shanice Clarke.

The Tavernspite Squad was made up of: Caitlin Lewis (captain), Phyllis Davies, Cara Merriman, Sophie Jones, Amelie Brown, Mia King-Allum, Sofia Dunlop, Ophelia Jenkins and Megan Morris.T

Pennar hold off Fishguard

Published

on

PENNAR Robins secured their third win in four games in all competitions on Saturday (Nov 20) as they beat Fishguard 5-3.

The home side got the scoring going on 14 minutes when Nick Willis found the back of the net.

Fishguard equalised though shortly before the half hour mark through Sean Seymour-Davies.

However, they were only level for three minutes as Luke Phillips scored after being set up by Craig Asparassa.

Pennar then made it 3-1 seven minutes later as Connor Roberts scored.

Fishguard’s hopes of getting something out of the game were all but ended three minutes into the second half as Asparassa got his name on the score sheet with Pennar’s fourth of the afternoon.

There was still plenty of time left though and on 64 minutes the visitors were awarded a penalty. Niall Kinsella scored from the spot to make it 4-2.

Willis then grabbed his second of the game eleven minutes from time to make sure of the points for the home side.

Jordan Raymond did pull a goal back four minutes from time for the visitors but it proved to be a consolation as Pennar saw the game out for the win.

On Saturday, November 27, Pennar are in action in the Senior Cup as they host Hakin United. Fishguard are in league action as they travel to bottom side Narberth.
