Lawrenny come up short in draw



cricket-2CRESSELLY (19 pts) 244-8 drew with Lawrenny (13 pts) 231-7 AN UNBEATEN 122 not out by Cresselly opener Phil ‘Taffy’ Williams helped Cresselly to a massive total, but Lawrenny dug in and the game petered out to draw. Andrew Cole scored 70 and James Buckle added 65 for Lawrenny but they could not reach their target. Phil Williams opened the batting and he looked to be in fine form, but Cresselly had slipped to 64-4 as Steven Lewis took the wickets of Simon Cole and Damien Arthur. Williams and Harry Thomas then led the fight back as they put on 81 for the fifth wicket. Thomas fell for 36 but Brad McDermott-Jenkins added 45 as he and Williams put on 80 runs for the sixth wicket. Williams carried his bat as he finished not out on 122 setting Lawrenny 245 to win. Andrew Cole and Hugh Griffiths got their side off to a flying start as they shared an opening stand of 87 before Griffiths was clean bowled by Brad McDermott-Jenkins. Cole and Buckle then shared 64 for the second wicket partnership, but that was broken when Cole was also bowled by Brad McDermott-Jenkins on a score of 70. James Buckle went on to score 65 but when he was caught by Mike Shaw off the bowling of Simon Cole, Lawrenny’s hopes of winning faded. Steven Lewis was the next top scorer on 16 but some good bowling from Cresselly meant that Lawrenny would finish only 14 runs short of their target. Cole bowled well as he finished with four wickets for 35 runs from his seven overs

Signed Wales shirts gifted to RNLI go up for auction



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



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.
