2021 Harrison-Allen Bowl - Neyland CC Pen Pictures

Sean Hannon
Sean Hannon - Captain and wicket-keeper - Sean is captaining the team in a Bowl final for the third time today, having skippered the side to glory in 2017 and 2020. Without doubt one of the sharpest behind the stumps in Pembrokeshire, his speed between the wickets can be crucial when chasing quick runs, as well as his ‘massive’ six-hitting ability - which is rarely spoken of.

Nick Koomen

Nick Koomen - One of three Bowl final man-of-the-match winners in the team, Nick has a history of delivering on the big stage with bat and ball, with his work in the field another real strength - and he will no doubt be looking to round-off yet another impressive season by winning what would be a sixth Bowl title.

Patrick Bellerby

Patrick Bellerby – ‘Paddy’ has developed significantly in recent times to become one of the key men in the batting order. A safe pair of hands in the field, his knock in the second innings of last year’s final, when the game was still in the balance, gave a great platform for the team to go on and win. He also hit 101 not out against Hook in an earlier round

Ashley Sutton

Ashley Sutton - Another of the previous man-of-the-match award winners in the side, this will be Ashley’s seventh appearance in a Bowl final. His power hitting at the top of the order makes him a threat to any bowling attack, with 52 not out against Cressellywhile his energy and enthusiasm in the field helps to ensure the team are always focused and sharp for the duration of the innings.

Ross Hardy

Ross Hardy - Ross has been a fantastic addition to the club since joining midway through the 2019 season, contributing significantly both on and off the field. He comes into today’s final - his second - with real confidence after a brilliant season with bat and ball, including 3 for 4 against Hook and knocks of 58 and 41 against Lawrenny and Cresselly in previous rounds, showing why he is considered to be one of the leading all-rounders in the county.

Nathan Banner
Nathan Banner – ‘Bans’ is another of the team’s talented all-rounders who has produced countless match-winning performances since arriving at the club in 2013. His display with the bat in last year’s final was one of the best the competition has seen, as he took the game away from Haverfordwest and put the team on course for a ninth title. A naturally competitive player, he will be eager to be just as involved this season

Brad McDermott-Jenkins
Brad McDermott-Jenkins - Brad has proved to be an excellent addition to an already strong side since joining last season, with his all-round ability providing depth in every key area. Capable of producing moments of magic with bat and ball, like he did with 3 for 29 against old club Lawrenny, ‘Bubs’ is the sort of player to raise his game for the big occasion as he aims for a second Bowl victory.

Scott Jones
 Scott Jones - After returning to the side halfway through the season, Scott has fitted back in seamlessly with a century and a handful of half-centuries showing his class with the bat. One of the leading fielders in the team, ‘Rushie’ is a fantastic person to have around with his humour and positivity helping to keep spirits high when things maybe aren’t going our way.

Henry Durrant
Henry Durrant - Another all-rounder in the side, Henry has plenty of Bowl final experience to call upon. He provides invaluable variation to the bowling attack with his left-arm deliveries, meaning opposition batsmen cannot always settle easily, while his stylish batting approach can help to gather runs quickly when required.

 Andrew Miller

Andrew Miller - 10 years after captaining the side to a first Bowl win in nearly three decades, Windy’s importance to the team has not diminished one bit. His clever, methodical bowling continues to get the better of most batsmen around the county, and he is another player who has bundles of experience to call upon in the big moments.

 Patrick Hannon
 Patrick Hannon - Playing in his seventh final today, Paddy has been a mainstay of the side for well over a decade. A genuine swing bowler, he outlined his ability to perform in pressure moments with a brilliant display of death bowling to defend 11 runs in the semi-final against Cresselly to see Neyland over the line.

Geraint Rees

 Geraint Rees - Geraint has already achieved a lot at a relatively early stage of his career, with his ability to cover all bases a real asset to the side. A talented footballer and golfer, ‘Gezza’ will be hoping to add another winner’s medal to his collection before he heads off to join the police force next month.
Gregg Miller Gregg Miller - Another player of vast experience who has served the club so well over many years and with the reputation of being a very good all-rounder and one of the best fielders and catchers in the county. He has played in six Bowl Finals, two as a winning captain and one of them where he featured on television! Also an outstanding indoor cricketer who has been a key figure in the club’s amazing success there.
 Jack John
Jack John - At 17 years of age Jack John has impressed with his performances since joining them after previously playing for Purton Cricket Clun in Swindon. From a long-established Neyland family, Jack has already shown pace aplenty with his bowling and claimed his first half century with 77 against Haverfordwest. He is certainly one to watch for the future and is also a useful footballer who is a member of the Haverfordwest County Academy.

 59 year old Gary Lloyd - Cheered off the pitch for the second day on the trot.
Gary Lloyd – at 59 years of age ‘Gadgy’ helped Neyland win this season’s league title with a 3 for 9 haul in nine overs against Lawrenny – and the next day hit the winning boundary to help the seconds win the Alec Colley Cup! A superb off-break bowler with best-ever figures of 9 for 27 against Haverfordwest – but used to open the batting in his younger days. Easily one of the most popular and respected players, not only in Neyland but across the county!
