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

Phillips takes a hat trick as Cresselly seal Alec Colley final spot

Published

on

CRESSELLY are through to the final of the Alec Colley Cup after beating Hook on Wednesday night (July 21) at Narberth Cricket Club.

Chris Phillips took a hat trick for Cresselly as they restricted Hook to 133-8 in their innings before going to pass their target for the loss of only one wicket.

Hook won the toss and batted first on another warm evening and openers Jamie Phelps and George James shared 37 runs for the first wicket.

Phelps scored 18 but he was then caught and bowled as Phillips picked up the first of his four wickets.

James hit five fours and six in his score of 33 but Phillips had him caught by Scott Arthur.

Phillips then removed Brennan Martin with the next ball before bowling Oscar Willington to claim his hat trick.

It left Hook reeling on 64-4 but scores of 32 from Liam Miller and 21 from Will Goronwy rescued Hook.

Matthew Lewis claimed the wicket of Miller and he later bowled Andrew Thomas to finish with figures of 2-29.

There was also two wickets for Corey Lewis but it was Phillips’ figures of 4-33 that stood out.

Scott Arthur and Neil Williams got Cresselly’s reply off to a great start as they shared 50 runs for the first wicket.

Williams was bowled by Oscar Willington on a score of 6 but that was the only wicket to fall.

Arthur and Chris Phillips shared 84 runs to take Cresselly into the Alec Colley Cup final.

Phillips added to his earlier wickets with a score of 25 not out that included four fours.

Arthur was the star of the innings however, as he hit 12 fours to finish not out on 73.

They will now play the winners of the tie between Neyland and Saundersfoot who play tonight at Carew Cricket Club.
