Kyle’s cracking century sees Narberth to victory

Published

on

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.

Haverfordwest County officials to visit Atlético Osasuna for strategic discussions

Published

on

NEXT week, Haverfordwest County A.F.C. chairman Robb Edwards and COO Beccy Nuttall will travel to Spain to visit Club Atlético Osasuna. During their visit, they will engage in high-level discussions with Osasuna’s upper management, focusing on community and fan engagement strategies.

In April, both Haverfordwest County A.F.C. and Club Atlético Osasuna were appointed to the Executive Board of the Union of European Clubs (UEC), an international organisation established in April 2023. The UEC was founded to provide a voice to the 92% of professional football clubs that often go unheard. The Union aims to democratise decision-making processes in European football, ensuring that each club has a vote and that the destiny of the sport is not determined solely by the wealthiest clubs on the continent.

“We look forward to this meeting with Osasuna and hope our collaboration with other clubs continues to grow,” said Edwards. The upcoming visit underscores the commitment of both clubs to fostering stronger ties and working collaboratively to shape the future of European football.

The discussions will likely cover a range of topics, from enhancing fan experiences to developing community outreach programmes, reflecting the shared values and objectives of both clubs within the UEC framework.
