Published

on

adamsHaverfordwest (130-3) beat Lawrenny (126) by 7 wickets A STELLAR performance from the Town’s pace bowler Adam James helped his side gain a comfortable victory over Lawrenny.

 Bowling down the slope, James was an immediate threat as he claimed Lawrenny opener Huw Griffiths for 0, and the visitors soon found themselves struggling at 5 for 22. Steve Lewis provided some respite for Lawrenny side as he battled hard against the Town’s bowlers for a fine 55 (nine fours and a six) before he fell to pace man James. There were contributions of 13 runs each from Ian Jenkins and Joe Kidney before Jamie Lewis struck 19 valuable runs as Josh Wilment (1 for 39), Clive Tucker (2 for 39) and Nigel Morgan (1 for 10) bowled well for Haverfordwest as Adam James finished with great figures of 6-27. The Town chased down the runs with relevant ease as opener Dai Davies scored 48 runs – including six fours, before Tim Mills (1-24) trapped him leg before wicket. The Town did wobble as they lost two other quick wickets to Jamie Lewis (2 for 16), but Simon Holliday (ten fours in his 54 not out) was able to steady the ship and guide his side to victory as Ben Field (18 not out) joined him in the middle.
