Kyle’s cracking century sees Narberth to victory



NARBERTH’s Kyle Quartermaine hit 23 boundaries on Saturday (July 3) to help his side to victory over Haverfordwest.

Narberth had earlier won the toss and chose to field but they saw Town rack up a good total of 238-4 from their 45 overs.

They then struggled early on in their reply but Kyle’s superb display all but won the game for the hosts.

Town started their innings brightly as Nikhil Mathias and Ben Field opened up with a stand of 49 runs.

Loui Davies made the breakthrough as he caught and bowled Mathias on a score of 13.

Ben Field hit five fours and three sixes in his score of 47 but he was then trapped leg before by Davies.

Jake Merry and Dai Davies took over with a stand of 75 runs for the third wicket as both batsmen neared their half centuries.

Merry hit three fours in his score of 33 but he was then bowled by Ben Hughes.

Davies and Danny Potter continued to put runs on the board as they added another 53 runs to the total before the next wicket.

Davies hit nine fours in his score of 62 but he was then caught by David Johns off the bowling of Matthew Johns.

Potter and Archie Thomas then added 41 runs to the total before their innings came to an end.

Thomas hit four fours in a score of 21 from 14 balls while Potter hit eight fours and a six as he reached his half century.

He finished not out on 50 from 31 balls and it meant Narberth would need 239 to win the game.

Narberth’s reply did not get off to the best of starts though as they lost three early wickets.

Adams was caught by Mikey Jones off the bowling of Ashley James and Jones then ran out Jamie McCormack on a score of 12.

James then had Hadleigh Luff caught by Jack Scriven as the home side slumped to 21-3.

Kyle Quartermaine and Lewis Hough then took over and they shared 77 runs for the fourth wicket.

Quartermaine neared his half century but he then saw Hough bowled by Clive Tucker on a score of 22.

Loui Davies was next to join Quartermaine in the middle and they added another 57 runs for the fifth wicket.

Quartermaine reached his half century and made his way to a score of 85 before Davies was bowled by Dai Davies on a score of 18.

Kyle’s brother Ben did not last long at the crease as he was caught and bowled by Jake Merry on a score of 1 to reduce Narberth to 156-6.

Kyle then took matters into his own hands as he smashed his way to a century before going on to reach a score of 136.

He hit sixteen fours and seven sixes in his knock, which came off 94 balls, but he finally fell when he was caught by Scriven off the bowling of Johnny White.

David Johns and Daniel Hughes fell to the bowling of Ashley James and Archie Thomas respectively as Town eyed victory with Narberth on 228-9.

However, Ben Hughes hit two fours in a row off the fourth and fifth balls of the last over to win Narberth the game.


Ammanford sign Kurtis Marsh from Lawrenny



LAWRENNY’S Kurtis Marsh will play for Ammanford Cricket Club in the 2022 season after the two clubs agreed a deal.

Marsh was one of Lawrenny’s stand out performers in Division 1 of the Pembrokeshire League this year.

He scored a number of important centuries and fifties as his club just missed out on securing the league title.

In total he scored 1070 runs in 15 innings while his highest score was 140 not out.

He was the Division’s highest scorer by just over 200 runs and was unbeaten in five innings.

On Twitter, Lawrenny Cricket Club said: “Absolutely gutted to lose Kurtis Marsh to Ammanford but he absolutely deserves this opportunity to play at a higher level. An unbelievable player and a top, top bloke. Go and smash it up there Kurt!!”

Marsh will now look forward to testing himself in Division 1 of the South Wales Premier Cricket League.

Carew and Hakin earn big wins in West Wales Cup



CAREW and Hakin United were big winners on Saturday (Oct 9) as they booked their places in round two of the West Wales Cup.

Carew travelled to Neath Premier Division side Cilfrew Rovers and it didn’t take them long to settle as James Hinchcliffe scored in the opening minute.

Cilfrew’s task became ever harder three minutes later as Adam Muskett scored to put his side in a strong position.

Matthew Evans pulled a goal back for the Rovers after 16 minutes but with five to go until half time Carew scored their third through Sam Christopher.

Muskett and Hinchcliffe scored in quick succession in the second half to all but seal the win for the Rooks.

Goals continued to come as Muskett completed his hat trick before Shaun Whitfield, a Dylan Morgan penalty and two from sub Jack Christopher took Carew’s score into double figures.

Muskett then got his fourth of the game to make it 11-1 to Carew.

Hakin also made the trip to Neath to face Division 1 side Resolven and, like Carew, they did not have to wait long for the first goal of the game.

It came from Justin Harding after four minutes and it was soon 2-0 as Jaden Chapman scored.

Ben Aldred then scored two goals in the space of two minutes, both assisted by Ryan Wilson, to effectively win the game for the visitors.

Harding added his second and Hakin’s fifth shortly before half time.

Twenty minutes into the second half, the Vikings added a sixth as sub Laurie Haworth found the back of the net.

Aldred and Chapman added to the scoring before Shane Walsh scored with three minutes to go to seal a 9-0 win.

Kilgetty bowed out of the competition as they were beaten 4-2 by Giants Grave. St Ishmaels were also sent packing after they were beaten 7-3 by CKSV.

Merlins Bridge’s game away at Treboeth was postponed because of a positive covid-19 case amongst one of the Neath teams’ players.

Saints go through to round two



ST Clears booked their place in the second round of the West Wales Cup on Saturday (Oct 9) as they beat Llangyfelach 3-0.

The Saints started the game slowly with most of the squad having been at captain Danny Peters’ wedding the day before.

Swansea Senior League Division 2 side Llangyfelach hit the post early on in what was their only real chance of the first half.

The Saints had quite a few chances to take the lead as Steve Thomas hit the bar with a good header from Ben John.

They slowly got on top and and they finally took the lead when the Llangyfelach keeper spilled a corner and Kyran Lewis nodded in from close range.

The second half was tight with more chances coming for the visitors but it was also heated at times with a number of yellow cards shown.

The second goal for the Saints when Nick squire hit a 30 yard effort from outside the box into the top corner, assisted by Martin Thomas.

Shortly before full time, the home side had Michael Matwychuk sent off for an apparent off the ball elbow.

Nick squire scored his second of the game from close range not long after to seal the victory.

The Saints’ reward for their win is a home tie against Felinfoel in the second round.
