BradshawLlanrhian (8 pts) 225-8 lost to St Ishmaels (29 pts) 226-7 by 3 wkts ST ISHMAELS Peter Bradshaw fell three runs short of a century as he helped his side see off a good challenge from Llanrhian on Saturday. 

Gareth Davies had earlier scored a superb century as Llanrhian scored 225 for 8. He and Ben Jones gave their side a great platform as they shared a 118-run opening stand. Jones fell for 48 when he was bowled by Jonathan Pawlett but Davies pushed on towards a century. But he did not receive much support as only one other batsman made it into double figures, Matthew Bennet with a score of 11. Davies was eventually bowled by Andrew Pawlett for a knock of 108 which include 12 fours and a six. Jonathan and Andrew Pawlett were the pick of the bowlers as they finished with three wickets each. St Ishmaels made a slow start in their reply and were reduced to 69 for 3. But a stand of 103 between Peter Bradshaw and Andrew Williams took them towards their total. Williams scored 41 before he fell to Luke Jones for one of his four wickets. Bradshaw was only three runs short of a century when he was stumped by Ben Jones off the bowling of Gareth Davies. His knock of 97 included eight fours and five sixes. Andrew Pawlett scored 16 while Matthew Phillips finished not out on 16 to help his side reach their target. Llanrhian Ben Jones bl Jonathan Pawlett 48 Gareth Davies bl Andrew Pawlett 108 Paul Lewis st Peter Bradshaw bl A Pawlett 2 Geraint Morris ct Brennan Devonald bl A Pawlett 9 J Jones ct B Devonald bl J Pawlett 9 Luke Jones bl J Pawlett 3 Matthew Bennett ct B Devonald bl Robbie Thomas 11 Scott James not out 7 Adam Phillips bl R Thomas 6 Extras 22 Total: 225-8 Bowling: Matthew Phillips 8-1-43-0; Andrew Williams 12-0-59-0; J Pawlett 12-0-50-3; A Pawlett 10-0-36-3; R Thomas 3-0-15-2. St Ishmaels Peter Bradshaw st Ben Jones bl G Davies 97 Danny Howells ct Paul Lewis bl Luke Jones 9 Jon Pawlett bl L Jones Philip Cockburn run out 17 Andrew Williams ct P Lewis bl L Jones 41 Brennan Devonald ct R Price bl G Davies 11 A Pawlett bl L Jones 16 Matthew Phillips not out 16 R Thomas not out 1 Extras 14 Total: 226-7 Bowling: M Bennett 11.5-0-61-0; L Jones 12-1-50-4; Jack Jones 6-0-33-0; G Davies 11-1-50-2; Robert Jenkins 4-0-26-0.

Jo said: “It is always an honour to play for your country and to have a Wales team made up entirely of Pembrokeshire players is such a wonderful achievement for our county.

“Each of the players is an inspiration but a special shout-out must go to Captain Marie Tilley who has overcome cancer to lead her country.

“Last week the players were surprised with the news that when they take to the pitch in Dublin they will be wearing the official Wales football kit, their faces were a picture and our thanks goes to the Football Association of Wales who are also providing training and travel kit.”

Wales will take on Ireland, Spain, Romania, Poland and Scotland during the tournament.
