2021 Harrison-Allen Bowl - Umpires and Scorers

Trefor Evans


This will be Trefor’s fifth final as proof of the total commitment he has given to being an official after many years playing for Whitland Cricket Club before that – and now with 60 years’ service there that included being captain, chairman, president and general dogsbody! He has been awarded deserved life membership there as well as a similar honour across the road at Whitland RFC, where he has served as chairman and vice chairman.
He has also officiated at every other final in the county and been on the County Executive for 20 years and the Umpires’ Association, where he is now vice-chairman after 25 years as Treasurer and again a life member in both! Add in his role over a long period as training officer for the county – and still enjoying his umpiring as much as ever!

Arthur will be appearing in his second final after first donning his umpires’ coat in 2003, following an appearance alongside Denis Chiffi in 2011, which he thoroughly enjoyed.
Now 78 years young, Arthur played his cricket for Carew and for a very strong Dyfed Police team which did well in competitions ‘up the line’ – and he still enjoys being part of umpiring every Saturday.
He is also a very capable Hon Secretary of the Pembrokeshire Association of Cricket Officials and helps allocate the match officials for Saturday games in the first division and as many as he can for the second division!


Julie DaviesSCORERS:

Julie is a lovely lady who stepped into the breach as first team scorer a few years ago after becoming frustrated that the club didn't have a scorer whilst watching her son Rhys play cricket. Her scorebook is always immaculate with Julie's confidence growing over the years.
She now scores in different colours for each bowler as well as operating the electronic scoreboard in Carew. Julie is highly respected by her fellow scorers, many of who are ladies like herself, as well as being loved and appreciated by all at Carew for the time and effort she gives to the club.
She is also a great unofficial press officer for the club’s first team since she provides updates at regular intervals for the local press every Saturday – and even provides a wide range of sweets for those who turn up to find out the scores!
John is now 80 years young and scoring in his seventh final after his first in 2009. He remembers taking part in a Bowl semi-final with Neyland almost 60 years ago and eventually playing in seven Bowl finals, with four winners’ medals!
He also played in the same number of DR Morris finals as a middle-order batsman and has served Neyland sport well for nigh on 60 years, with the terrific support of his wife Jen, since he also played rugby and has been a long-serving administrator with the Pembrokeshire All Blacks. He enjoys being a part of the cricket at Neyland and has travelled to all the away matches – and scores for the county team as a tribute to his enthusiasm.
