Lawrenny reach Harrison Allen final

Published

on

LAWRENNY became the first side into the 2019 Harrison Allen Bowl final on Tuesday (Jul 9) as they beat Saundersfoot by five wickets in a thrilling game.

Saundersfoot had knocked out holders Cresselly in the quarter finals to ensure their would be a new name on the trophy this year and they looked to set a good score after winning the toss and electing to bat.

Openers Danny Caine and Nick Cope shared 44 runs for the first wicket.

Lawrenny then made the breakthrough as Cope, who made a score of 25, was caught by Joe Kidney off the bowling of Rob Williams.

Brad McDermott-Jenkins then bowled Caine on a score of 38 that included three fours and a six.

Ryan Morton then bowled Sam Franklin on a score of 19 and he did the same to John Mansbridge as Saundersfoot were reduced to 95-4.

Tom Mansbridge then took control as he hit four sixes and a four in a score of 50.

He had seen James Caine bowled by Kurtis Marsh and the same bowler then had Mansbridge caught to bring his excellent knock to an end.

Marsh then claimed his third wicket as he had Yannic Parker stumped by James Phillips.

Gareth Edwards then hit a six on the final ball to see Saundersfoot finish on 154-7.

Lawrenny got their reply off to a good start as Harry Thomas and Kurtis Marsh shared 56 runs for the first wicket.

Thomas made a score of 21 but he then edged behind to Taran Richards off the bowling of Danny Caine.

Marsh had hit five fours and a six in his score of 38 but he was then bowled by Nick Cope.

Brad McDermott-Jenkins was then caught by Tom Mansbridge off the bowling of Neil Powling.

Cope then struck again as he had James Phillips caught by John Mansbridge as Lawrenny slipped to 88-4.

Joe Kidney and Steve Lewis then shared 43 runs for the fifth wicket to put Lawrenny in touching distance.

When Lewis was caught by Richards off the bowling of Tom Mansbridge, Lawrenny still needed 24 from the final 18 balls.

They got that down to 13 from the final over and it was Kidney who kept his nerve with two runs, a four, another two runs and then a six off the final ball to spark wild scenes.

It meant that Kidney finished not out on 44 with two fours and three sixes and that Lawrenny had reached the Bowl final for the second successive year.

The Harrison Allen Bowl final will take place on Saturday, August 31, in Cresselly.

Lawrenny will play the winners of the second semi-final between Haverfordwest and Whitland which takes place in Carew tomorrow night (Jul 11).

Signed Wales shirts gifted to RNLI go up for auction

Published

on

FOLLOWING a winning start to the Six Nations Tournament, the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) have scored a winning try for the RNLI, gifting six signed rugby shirts to help save lives at sea.

Each rugby shirt has been signed by the full WRU squad and are accompanied by a certificate of authentication – a winning prize for any Welsh rugby fan.

To avoid a ruck for the WRU shirts the charity has placed all six signed shirts on an online auction, ensuring a fair game for all who wish to win the golden prize. The auction will be live until Wednesday, March 31, which allows plenty of time for supporters to bid for the team in red.

Each signed shirt includes Wales Captain, Mumbles RNLI supporter and the most capped international player of all time Alun Wyn Jones; as well as Louis Rees-Zammit, the Man of the Match in the nail-biting Scotland v Wales game.

Nick Evans, RNLI Fundraising and Partnership Lead said: ‘On behalf of the charity I would like to say a big thank you to the Welsh Rugby Union for donating these fantastic prizes to the RNLI. RNLI volunteers are on call 24-7 and are often called away from important events such as family celebrations – or international rugby tournaments – to respond to the pager if someone is in trouble at sea.

‘Like all charities, 2020 was a challenging year for the RNLI when all traditional fundraising had to stop – all our shops were closed, there were no collections and all events had to be cancelled. This is why we at the RNLI are so grateful to all the team at WRU for their ongoing support. The auction is now live and we would like to encourage all Wales rugby supporters to throw the RNLI a lifeline and place their bid for the winning prize.’

Five subs to be allowed for JD Cymru Premier clubs

Published

on

THE FAW’s National Leagues Board has confirmed that JD Cymru Premier clubs will be permitted to make five substitutions in matches, in accordance with the Laws of the Game, until the end of the 2020-21 top-flight season.

FIFA extended the use of the rule, which was first introduced following the COVID-19 outbreak, citing “player welfare” as part of the reason for the temporary amendment to Law 3 of the Laws of the Game.

FIFA stated that “Some competitions which resumed in 2020 may have a shorter-than-usual recovery/preparation period before the start of their next season.”

“For many competitions, the 2020/21 season will involve matches being played in a condensed period due to a delayed start and the inability to end later than usual because of major international tournaments.”

With the JD Cymru Premier set to restart on March 2, the National Leagues Board has approved the use of the rule in the JD Cymru Premier until the end of the current campaign.
