However, an excellent bowling and fielding display from Lawrenny saw them do the same to their opponents, bowling them out for 82.

Hannon also had the wickets of Rob Williams and Jamie Lewis as Lawrenny slipped to 107 all out after 21.3 overs.

Ross Hardy was out for a golden duck as he was caught by Harry Thomas off the bowling of Ryan Morton.

Brad McDermott-Jenkins hit a six in his score of 9 but he also fell to Morton who then took the wicket of George Evans.

Rob Williams then bowled Jack John before Patrick Bellerby, who had been invoking memories of his century in the 2021 final with 25 off 17 balls (two fours and a six), was bowled by Ryan Morton.

That left Neyland reeling on 46-6. Sean and Patrick Hannon came together at the crease looking to steady the ship and they added 14 runs for the seventh wicket.

Hannon was caught by Phillips off the bowling of Jamie Lewis. Andrew Miller was run out as Neyland slipped to 74-8.

Sam Laugharne was bowled by Steve Lewis and soon after the game was over as Jamie Lewis bowled Gary Lloyd.

It left Patrick Hannon not out on 19 but it was Lawrenny who celebrated a shock win.
