Last pair in final over victory




St Ishmaels (144 for 10 in 44.3 ovrs) lost to Lawrenny (146 for 7 in 44.2 ovrs)

LAWRENNY’s Jamie Lewis and Rob Williams held their nerves in the final over to claim victory against St Ishmaels and gain their side valuable points. Tish were all out for 144 as Philip Cockburn and Danny Howells were the only batsmen to really trouble the scorers. Wickets fell at regular intervals in Lawrenny’s innings, but a half century from Joe Kidney and a late knock of 23 from Jonathan Mathias guided them to their total. St Ishmaels wobbled early on in their innings falling to 17-3 as all three openers fell to the bowling of Rob Williams. However, Cockburn and Howells put on 73 for the fourth wicket before Cockburn was caught by Matthew Lewis off the bowling of James Buckle for 35. Danny Howells batted on but he did not receive much support and he eventually fell for 52 when he was brilliantly caught and bowled by Buckle. Matthew Phillips made a late contribution with 17 but Buckle and Rob Williams continued to take wickets as St Ishmaels were all out for 144. Buckle finished with 3-31 from his eight overs, but Rob Williams was the star bowler taking five wickets for 23 runs from his 11 overs. Lawrenny also made a shaky start to their innings as they slipped to 15- 2, but opener Andrew Cole laid a good platform making 29 before he was bowled by Andrew Pawlett. When Steve Lewis and Ian Jenkins both fell cheaply Lawrenny were struggling on 83-5. Joe Kidney and Jonathan Mathias then shared 47 for the sixth wicket before Mathias fell for 23. Kidney followed soon after for a knock of 53 (three fours and a six) when he was bowled by Andrew Williams. That left Lawrenny on 142-7 and with two new batsmen at the crease St Ishmaels would have fancied their chances of taking the win. Rob Williams and Jamie Lewis had other ideas as they knocked off the four runs needed for victory. St Ishmaels Peter Bradshaw lbw Rob Williams 3 Andrew Palmer lbw R Williams 10 Andrew Williams b R Williams 0 Philip Cockburn c Mathew Lewis b James Buckle 35 Danny Howells c&b J Buckle 52 Brennan Devonald run out 1 Jon Pawlett b Steve Lewis 10 Andrew Pawlett b R Williams 10 Matthew Phillips b J Buckle 17 Danny Flynn c Phillip Cole b R Williams 0 Robbie Thomas not out 0 Extras 6 Total: 144-AO Bowling: Rob Williams 10.3-5-23-5; Jamie Lewis 6-2-17-0; Phillip Cole 8-0-44-0; Steve Lewis 12-5-24-1; James Buckle 8-0-31-3. Lawrenny Andrew Cole b A Pawlett 29 Hugh Griffiths b A Palmer 0 James Buckle b A Palmer 4 Joe Kidney b A Williams 53 S Lewis c D Howells b A Pawlett 5 Ian Jenkins b D Flynn 11 Jonathan Mathias c D Howells b A Williams 23 Rob Williams not out 1 Jamie Lewis not out 4 Extras 16 Total: 146-7 Bowling: Matthew Phillips 4-2-7-0; A Palmer 12-4-19-2; Andrew Pawlett 12-3-24-2; D Flynn 7-0-39-1; Andrew Williams 6.2-2-17-2; Jon Pawlett 2.1- 0-14-0; Robbie Thomas 0.5-0-12-0

Signed Wales shirts gifted to RNLI go up for auction



FOLLOWING a winning start to the Six Nations Tournament, the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) have scored a winning try for the RNLI, gifting six signed rugby shirts to help save lives at sea.

Each rugby shirt has been signed by the full WRU squad and are accompanied by a certificate of authentication – a winning prize for any Welsh rugby fan.

To avoid a ruck for the WRU shirts the charity has placed all six signed shirts on an online auction, ensuring a fair game for all who wish to win the golden prize. The auction will be live until Wednesday, March 31, which allows plenty of time for supporters to bid for the team in red.

Each signed shirt includes Wales Captain, Mumbles RNLI supporter and the most capped international player of all time Alun Wyn Jones; as well as Louis Rees-Zammit, the Man of the Match in the nail-biting Scotland v Wales game.

Nick Evans, RNLI Fundraising and Partnership Lead said: ‘On behalf of the charity I would like to say a big thank you to the Welsh Rugby Union for donating these fantastic prizes to the RNLI. RNLI volunteers are on call 24-7 and are often called away from important events such as family celebrations – or international rugby tournaments – to respond to the pager if someone is in trouble at sea.

‘Like all charities, 2020 was a challenging year for the RNLI when all traditional fundraising had to stop – all our shops were closed, there were no collections and all events had to be cancelled. This is why we at the RNLI are so grateful to all the team at WRU for their ongoing support. The auction is now live and we would like to encourage all Wales rugby supporters to throw the RNLI a lifeline and place their bid for the winning prize.’

Five subs to be allowed for JD Cymru Premier clubs



THE FAW’s National Leagues Board has confirmed that JD Cymru Premier clubs will be permitted to make five substitutions in matches, in accordance with the Laws of the Game, until the end of the 2020-21 top-flight season.

FIFA extended the use of the rule, which was first introduced following the COVID-19 outbreak, citing “player welfare” as part of the reason for the temporary amendment to Law 3 of the Laws of the Game.

FIFA stated that “Some competitions which resumed in 2020 may have a shorter-than-usual recovery/preparation period before the start of their next season.”

“For many competitions, the 2020/21 season will involve matches being played in a condensed period due to a delayed start and the inability to end later than usual because of major international tournaments.”

With the JD Cymru Premier set to restart on March 2, the National Leagues Board has approved the use of the rule in the JD Cymru Premier until the end of the current campaign.
