Cresselly go top after big win over Whitland



CRESSELLY took advantage of Neyland’s game with Lawrenny being called off as they beat Whitland to move to the top of the table on Saturday (Jun 19).

They do now have a game in hand on Neyland but the win will give Cresselly plenty of confidence as a number of their batsmen made good scores.

Phil Williams and Matthew Morgan got the hosts off to a great start on Saturday as they shared 62 runs for the first wicket.

Scott Newton made the breakthrough as he trapped Williams leg before on a score of 23.

Morgan and Dan Sutton added another 55 runs to the score as Morgan neared a half century.

He wouldn’t reach it though as he fell on 44 when he was caught by Conor Bowen off the bowling of Newton.

Sutton and Iwan Izzard shared a third-wicket stand worth 58 runs which also saw Sutton reach his half century.

He eventually fell on a score of 61 as he was trapped leg before by Jonathan Thomas.

Gethin Scourfield then had Ryan Lewis caught by Gwion Howell as Whitland began to hit back to leave Cresselly on 178-4.

However, Izzard and Simon Cole shared another good stand worth 62 runs to take Cresselly past 200 runs.

It also saw Izzard reach his half century and he went on to reach a score of 79 with eight fours and four sixes.

He was then caught by Newton off the bowling of Luc Owen who then also caught and bowled Mike Venables.

Owen claimed a third wicket as bowled Dan James but Cole’s score of 24 not out saw Cresselly finish on 260-7 from their 45 overs.

Whitland knew they needed to start well if they were to stand a chance of reaching their target and they had openers Dylan Blain and Kevin Pearce shared 30 runs for the first wicket.

Blain scored 18 but he was then caught by Iwan Izzard off the bowling of Tom Arthur.

Arthur also had Geraint Jones caught by Tom Murphy.

Dan James then bowled Pearce on a score of 13 as Whitland slipped to 49-3.

Jonathan Thomas could only reach 11 before he was caught by Neilson Cole off the bowling of Murphy.

Gwion Howell made the same score only to be stumped by Cole off the bowling of Ryan Lewis.

Scott Newton reached a score of 19 but he was then trapped leg before by Lewis.

That made the score 90-6 and it was soon 91-7 as Jacob Owen was caught by Izzard off the bowling Lewis.

Gethin Scourfield was the third Whitland batsman to reach a score of 11 but he was trapped leg before by Simon Cole.

Jack Bowen hit two fours and a six in a score of 23 but he was caught by Lewis off the bowling of Arthur.

Conor Bowen made a late score of 18 but he was caught by Murphy off the bowling of Izzard as their innings came to a close.

That saw Whitland bowled out for 145 as Cresselly earned a 115-run victory.

Llangwm edge past Tish to book Harrison Allen quarter final spot



LLANGWM secured their place in the quarter finals of the Harrison Allen Bowl on Wednesday night (May 25) as they beat St Ishmaels by 4 runs.

Tish won the toss and chose to field and they restricted Llangwm to 146-9 in their 22 overs.

Noah Davies and Joe Kiff made a good start for the hosts as they shared 67 runs for the first wicket.

Kiff was the first man to go as he was caught by Ieuan Hawkins off the bowling of Brennan Devonald on a score of 27 that had included two fours and two sixes.

Soon after, Davies, who had hit one of each boundary in his score of 27, was also following Kiff back to the pavilion after being bowled by Jonathan Pawlett.

Pawlett also claimed the wicket of Will Beresford before Steven Mills departed on a score of 16 (1 four, 1 six) when he was caught and bowled by Devonald.

That left Llangwm on 107-4 but scores of 15 from Matthew Kiff and 16 not out from David Lewis saw them to their total.

For Tish, Pawlett finished with excellent figures of 4-41 while Devonald finished with 3-25.

Peter Bradshaw hit two early fours in his score of 12 but he was run out.

Karl Rhead and Andrew Palmer shared 42 runs for the second wicket as Palmer made his way to a score of 35.

Rhead was bowled by Steven Mills who then did the same to Brennan Devonald moments later.

Palmer had reached 42 with five fours and a six but when he was brilliantly caught by Luke Brock off the bowling of Mills, Tish had slipped to 77-4.

Phil Cockburn and Jonathan Pawlett then shared 23 runs for the fifth wicket as they looked to keep Tish in the game.

Pawlett hit a six but was then caught by Oliver Davies to give Mills his fourth wicket and figures of 4-28.

Cockburn and Andew Pawlett then shared 37 runs for the sixth wicket as they took the tie down to the final over of the game.

They scored 17 runs off the 20th over and 18 runs off the 21st over meaning they would need 11 off the final over to win it.

Cockburn took a run off the first to bring Pawlett on strike. After missing the third ball he went for a run that wasn’t there and keeper Beresford ran out Cockburn.

He had hit two fours and three sixes in his score of 39 from 30 balls.

Andrew Pawlett and Andrew Williams could only take five runs from the next five balls but it wasn’t enough for victory.

Pawlett finished unbeaten on a score of 20 from 11 balls with one four and two sixes.
