Neyland hold off Cresselly’s late charge to book Harrison Allen final spot

Published

on

NEYLAND held off a late charge from Cresselly to book their place in the final of the Harrison Allen Bowl on Tuesday night (Jul 27).

In front of a good crowd at Kilgetty Cricket Club, Neyland posted 160-5 in their innings before they were able to restrict Cresselly to 158-4 to win by just two runs.

Cresselly needed just 11 runs off the final over to progress to the final but some excellent bowling from Patrick Hannon meant they were unable to get those runs despite a final ball six from Iwan Izzard who finished unbeaten on 98.

Earlier, Cresselly had won the toss and chose to field first but they saw Nick Koomen and Ross Hardy share an opening wicket stand of 71.

Koomen made his way to a score of 26 but he was then caught by Tom Arthur off the bowling of Mike Shaw.

Arthur then bowled Hardy on a score of 41 that included seven fours and a six.

That left Neyland on 75-2 but Ashley Sutton and Nathan Banner shared another 38 runs for the third wicket to take their side into triple figures.

Banner was caught behind by Neilson Cole off the bowling of Arthur on a score of 12 and soon after Ryan Lewis bowled Brad McDermott-Jenkins.

Tom Murphy then got in on the action as he bowled Scott Jones to reduce Neyland to 146-5.

Sutton then reached his half century before finishing unbeaten on 52 to set Cresselly a target of 161 to win.

Alex Bayley and Dan Sutton, fresh from his double century on Saturday, shared 27 runs for the first wicket in Cresselly’s reply.

Bayley departed early on though as he was caught and bowled by Ross Hardy.

Sutton was unable to repeat his scoring feats from the weekend as he was caught by Andrew Miller off the bowling of Brad McDermott-Jenkins on a score of 26.

Matthew Morgan did not last long at the crease as he was run out by Henry Durrant for a duck.

That left Cresselly in trouble on 48-3 but Iwan Izzard and Ryan Lewis shared another 35 runs for the fourth wicket to keep their side in the game.

Lewis reached a score of 11 before he was caught by Geraint Rees off the bowling of Henry Durrant to leave Cresselly on 83-4 in the 14th over.

Iwan Izzard’s excellent knock wasn’t enough for Cresselly

Needing 78 from the final eight overs, Izzard and Tom Murphy did their best to keep the scoreboard ticking over.

Izzard reached his half century and took Cresselly to 150-4 after 21 overs.

Patrick Hannon bowled the final over for Neyland and he did well to concede only three runs in the first five balls to ensure that Izzard’s final six wasn’t enough to send Cresselly through.

Izzard hit eight fours and seven sixes as he finished unbeaten on 98. It meant that Cresselly finished their innings on 158-4, giving Neyland victory by only two runs.

They will play the winners of the second semi-final between Carew and Burton which is being played in Neyland on Thursday (Jul 29).

The final will be played in Cresselly on Saturday, August 28.

Published

on

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.
