Impressive McGilloway century helps Stags to victory


Lamphey (241 for 8) beat Hook (132 all out) by 109 runs

Umpires: Chris Stapleton & Ian Gow
Scorer: Helen Hodges (Lamphey)
A sparkling century by Peter McGilloway set-up a comfortable victory for Lamphey at home against Hook as both teams came into this game without any worry of promotion or relegation.

The Stags opened the batting with McGilloway setting the tone with a brilliant 113 (15 fours and a six) before he was bowled by Aled Phelps, and he was ably assisted by teammates David Blackwell (52, with seven boundaries) and Grant Cole (31) as they set a challenging total of 241 for 8.

Hook’s chief wicket taker was Aled Phelps with an impressive 4 for 39,  and there was two wickets each for Brennan Martin (2 for 34) and Chris Holder (2 for 50).

In reply, Hook struggled to keep up with the Stags’ run rate as they lost wickets regularly. The visitors’ run gatherers were Jake Wicks (40), Lewis Miller 22, Lee Morgan 19, and Bradley Flood (16).

Leading the bowling charge for Lamphey was Hywel Gibbs who finished with an impressive (3 for 26) alongside Grant Cole (2 for 2), Shaun Donohoe (2 for 45), Jonathan Edwards (1 for 15) and David Dredge (1 for 0 from his only delivery) restricted the visitors to 132 all out.


Dock fall short against The Rooks but still go up


Carew (132 for 3) beat Pembroke Dock (131 all out) by 7 wickets

Scorer: Nicola Murray (Pembroke Dock)
Haydn Shapcott - batted well for Carew 2ndsCarew Seconds gained a comfortable seven-wicket victory against Pembroke Dock, who must have thought their chance of promotion had gone up in smoke until news filtered through that fellow contenders Burton had also lost.

The Dock batted first and they struggled against the accurate bowling of Barry Evans (3 for 18) and Kerry Waters (3 for 24) alongside success for George Waters (2 for 23) and Ceri Brace (2 for 31). Only George Smith (37) and Nick Daley looked steady at the crease for the Dock as the innings closed on 131 all out.

In reply, Handy Shapcott (51no, with eight boundaries) cracked an undefeated half century and he found useful knocks from Tom Scourfield (46, including six fours and a six)), Iori Hicks (13no) and Ceri Brace (12) who guided the Rooks over the finishing line.

Billy Wood (1 for 26), Connor Carroll (1 for 23) and Nick Daley (1 for 29) took wickets in vain for the bitterly-disappointed, but ultimately delighted, Dock players.


Chalkie White leads Pembroke to comfortable win


Pembroke (228 for 3) beat Haverfordwest 2nds (120 for 3) by 108 runs

Scorer: Natalie Thomas (Haverfordwest)
Paul White - smashing 92 for PembrokePembroke proved too strong for relegated Haverfordwest 2nds as they eased to a 108 runs victory at Treleet in a match which was reduced to 35 overs due to the wet weather and the later start.

The hosts batted first, and leading by example was a brilliant innings by Paul ‘Chalkie’ White who scored 92 (8 fours and a six),  and desperately unlucky not to reach a century. There were also excellent half centuries by Luke Butler (53, seven fours) and Jon Rogers (57no, with 7 fours and a six) as they reached an impressive 228 for 3.

The Town second-string wicket takers were Nigel Morgan (2 for 41) and Seth Woodhouse (1 for 51).
Ashoka (8 fours in his 45) batted well for the visitors and he was supported well by Nigel Morgan (29no) and Jason Phillips (22no), but they were always well behind the run rate, with the team suffered the indignity of not winning a single game all season.

Pembroke’s wicket takers were Jack Harries (1 for 12), Steve Durston (1 for 27) and George Davies.
