Llangwm win high-scoring game with Lamphey



LLANGWM closed the gap to leaders Pembroke Dock at the top of Division 2 on Saturday (July 3) as they beat Lamphey in a high-scoring game.

Lamphey won the toss and chose to field first but they saw Llangwm make an excellent score of 258-5 before declaring after 37 overs.

Llangwm lost opener Phil Llewellyn early on when he was run out by David Dredge on a score of 13.

Joe Kiff and Steven Inward took charge of the game and they shared 141 runs for the second wicket.

Inward reached his half century while Kiff edged towards a century as he thumped eleven fours and five sixes in a score of 96 from 72 balls.

He was denied his century though as Dredge caught him off the bowling of Shaun Donohoe.

Inward and Noah Davies then took the score past 200 runs but Davies was then caught and bowled by Grant Cole.

Matthew Kiff joined Inward at the crease and the pair shared another 42 runs for the fourth wicket.

Inward hit eight fours and four sixes as he reached a score of 98 but he was also denied the chance to make three figures as he was caught by Andy Tait off the bowling of Donohoe.

There was another wicket for Grant Cole before Llangwm decided to bring their innings to a close.

Lamphey lost Peter McGilloway early on in their reply as he was trapped leg before by Joe Phillips.

David Blackwell and Andy Tait shared 62 runs for the second wicket as they looked emulate their opponents’ early scoring.

Tait hit eight fours and a six in his score of 49 but he was then caught by Phillips off the bowling of Noah Davies.

Davies also had Nick Shelmerdine caught by Phil Llewellyn as wickets began to fall at regular intervals.

Blackwell had hit five fours in his score of 39 but he was then caught by Luke Brock, also off the bowling of Davies.

Davies then picked up his fourth wicket as he bowled Grant Cole and Joe Kiff then ran out Rob Mathias.

That left Lamphey on 126-6 and it soon became 134-7 as Sam Burrows was caught by Steven Inward off the bowling of Matthew Kiff.

Jon Edwards did not last much longer as he was caught by Joe Kiff off the bowling of Davies who claimed his fifth wicket of the game.

David Dredge and Hywel Gibbs offered some late resistance as they shared another 48 runs for the ninth wicket.

Dredge hit seven fours in his score of 51 but he was then caught by Llewellyn off the bowling of Matthew Kiff.

Gibbs had scored 19 but he was bowled by Kiff as Llangwm secured victory by 62 runs.


Goodwick prove too strong for Fishguard



GOODWICK United maintained their excellent start to the season on Saturday (Oct 23) as they beat Fishguard 7-2 at Tregroes Park.

The game was just thirteen minutes old when the first goal went in as Luke Hayward set up Kieran O’Brien who scored his first Division 1 goal of the season.

They had to wait until the stroke of half time for their second goal and it was Hayward who was the creator again as this time he found Nathan Greene who made it 2-0.

Fishguard were not out of the game at half time and ten minutes into the second half they were back in it when O’Brien’s own goal made it 2-1.

However, just four minutes later, Iestyn Evans scored his second goal of the season to make it 3-1 to the visitors.

Rhys Dalling made it 4-1 soon after as Fishguard’s hopes of getting back into the game were all but over.

Jordan Griffiths then added Goodwick’s fifth goal of the game before Fishguard pulled a second goal back through Sean Seymour-Davies.

That proved to be a consolation effort though as Daniel James scored for Goodwick before Dalling rounded off the win with a penalty.

On Saturday, October 30, Goodwick host Hakin United in a battle of the top two teams in the division.

Lawrenny upset Narberth in Senior Cup



DIVISION 3 side Lawrenny beat Division 1 side Narberth in the Senior Cup on Saturday (Oct 23) to book their place in the second round of the competition.

It was an excellent win for Lawrenny which earns them a tie against neighbours Carew in the second round.

Narberth have struggled so far in Pembrokeshire’s top division but they went ahead on 19 minute when Matthew Kidney put the ball into his own net.

Lawrenny were not put off by that setback and in the space of six minutes they turned the game on its head.

Ben Adams scored to level the game and just a minute later Max James scored to put Lawrenny ahead.

Tom Cole then scored just after the half hour mark to give Lawrenny a 3-1 lead.

And just a minute into the second half it was 4-1 as Adams scored his second goal of the game.

He then completed his hat trick to all but seal Lawrenny’s passage into the second round.

However, Josh Layzell pulled a goal back for Narberth and Jordan Howell scored after to make it 5-3 to give the Division 1 side a bit of hope.

They were unable to find another goal though and Adams made sure of the result as he scored his fourth goal in the last minute of the game.

Saints see off Pendine in Senior Cup



ST Clears booked a second round Senior Cup tie with Monkton Swifts on Saturday (Oct 23) as they beat Pendine 2-0.

It was the first fixture between the two teams for ten years and excitement was building ahead of the game.

The first half was a quiet affair though as neither side was able to find any sort of rhythm in the tough conditions and the score was still 0-0 at half time.

The Saints came out for the second half with a bit more purpose and got their rewards when Ben John neatly beat two players and rolled the ball in to the bottom corner past Pendine keeper Jack Bowen.

St Clears continued to press but Pendine were putting up their best efforts to keep them out.

The Saints sealed the victory in the 80th minute when a long throw-in into the box was met by the head of Martin Thomas, who made no mistake from 6 yards out.
