Jack’s power hitting earns him Thomas Carroll ‘Performance of the Month’ award for July

The deserved winner of the July  ‘Performance of the Month’ award from Thomas Carroll, the main sponsors of the Pembroke County Cricket Club, was Jack Bowen, who received his award from Brian Hawkins, who works for Thomas Carroll and a former player who loves his cricket.
Also in attendance was Paul Webb, the Pembroke CCC chairman, who said,
“Jack’s performances this month have been terrific after gaining promotion to Whitland’s first team and I was delighted to see his run-making recognised by the County Club selectors as he made his debut against Glamorgan Seconds at Cresselly.”
It was a view echoed by Brian Hawkins, who told us,
“As a company we are very happy to recognise such performances with our monthly awards and is especially pleasing to see Jack rise through the ranks as reward for his terrific play.”

Massive hitting ability in seconds . . .

Jack has long been known for his big-hitting ability at Whitland but there was little inkling of the greater things to come as he set out in the seconds and had early scores of 12, 25, 14, 17 and 25 again, getting started but getting out at key times.
But then on the 7th of July he blitzed a massive 198 against Cresselly Seconds, an innings that contained 21 fours and 12 sixes and so gave him 156 runs in boundaries – it was scintillating stuff and he only missed out on a double-hundred by attempting another big hit and being caught on the boundary!

. . . Maintained at first team level

Such a huge score earned him a call into the first team and he continued his form with 58 against St Ishmaels and 86 against Burton, before ending the month with 13 at Haverfordwest that saw him score 355 runs in only four innings!
So PembrokeshireSport.co.uk would like to add our congratulations to Jack on his award – and say well done again to Thomas Carroll for their continued support of sport in Pembrokeshire!
