Division 2 Reports - 24th July 2021 - by Fraser Watson

Burton - enjoy their 10 wicket success on The Racecourse 

Hayman and Davies send The Town down 


Haverfordwest 2nds (126 all out) lost to Burton (130 for 0) by 10 wickets 

Scorers: Natalie Thomas and Janice Webb. 
Burton’s opening pair of Toby Hayman and Jack Davies didn’t need back up as they easily reached the 127 needed to win at Haverfordwest. 
The Town were always fighting the tide with the bat despite Jonathan Tooze (36) and Danny Dewstowe (34) both playing good knocks, and Richard Davies added 14. 
But Jack Davies backed up his seven wicket haul last week as he took 4 for 27, while Jon Venables (3 for 19), Dan Ridge (1 for 15) and Luke Hayman (2 for 37) helped skittle the hosts for 126. 
Davies then further enhanced his all-rounder status with 54 not out (six fours), and Hayman cruised to 71 not out in only 59 balls (four fours and six sixes) – meaning he has now amassed 243 runs in his last three league matches, finishing this one-sided affair in style with a maximum.
More importantly for Burton though, the result keeps them hot on the heels of Pembroke Dock in second place – but for The Town it means relegation to the third tier for Nigel Morgan’s men is confirmed. 

Jack Davies (runs and wickets) and Toby Hayman (more runs in easy Burton win)


Bennett and John’s blasts help Herbie beat Carew 


Herbrandston (197 all out) beat Carew 2nds (80 all out) by 117 runs

Scorers: Steve Bennett and Rob Hicks. 
Dean John - runs and wickets in Herbie winKristan Bennett - star performance for HerbieKristan Bennett and Dean John both shone with bat and ball as Herbrandston comfortably beat Carew 2nds. 
Bennett banged a quick-fire 51, and John 40, in the home side’s total of 197 all out - before taking seven wickets between them as The Rooks were all out for 80.
Jonty Bennett also played a vital hand as the opener made 44 and Jack Nicholas 20, but Carew kept at it to earn maximum bowling points through Kerry Waters (2 for 16), Rhys Canton (2 for 8), skipper Barry Evans (2 for 43), and Aaron Hinman (3 for 40). 
The away side’s reply saw Tom Scourfield (20) and Scott Richards (27) make good contributions but the pace of John (4 for 14) and Bennett (3 for 18) proved too much – with Harry Nicholas (3 for 17) also causing problems as Herbie stayed fourth. 

The Dock celebrate an easy victory

The Dock bounce back with a swift win at Hook 


Hook (47 all out) lost to Pembroke Dock (48 for 2) by 8 wickets 

Scorers: Joy James and Nicola Murray. 
George Smith - four-wicket haul for Pembroke DockThey were finished in time for the British Lions at Hook as Pembroke Dock recovered from three straight defeats with this comprehensive win. 
The hosts were all out for 47 as George Smith took four wickets, and The Dock took just five overs to knock off the total.
Hook laboured to their score in 38.5 overs, and opener Lewis Miller’s score of 13 (two fours) proved to be the top one. 
But by the time he was run out by Nick Daley, he’d already seen Owen (0) and Aled Phelps (4) both removed by Billy Wood – who finished with a miserly 2 for 6 from nine overs (five maidens). 
And at 19 for 3 Smith then wreaked havoc, taking 4 for 12 in his six overs while Jamie White took 2 for 6 in his nine. 
Daley wrapped up the innings by trapping Bradley Flood (4) LBW, and despite the tightness of the bowling, extras (7) was actually second top scorer. 
The away side reached 32 for 0 before Jake Davies was bowled by Callum James for 21 (four fours), and then Daley gave a return catch to Aled Phelps for a two-ball duck. 
But as usual, Jake Griffiths didn’t hang around as he hit four boundaries to be 19 not out in seven balls, with Smith (2 not out) helping to finish the job. 

Cole takes five as The Stags shine early 


Lamphey (170 all out) beat Pembroke (112 all out) by 58 runs 

Scorers: Helen Hodges and Paul Francis. 
Grant Cole - five-wicket haul for LampheyThere was an early midday start for the derby game between Lamphey and Pembroke, and it was The Stags who enjoyed it most as they took another huge step towards cementing their place in Division 2 for next season. 
They made 170 not out as David Blackwell made 48, and then five wickets for Grant Cole ensured Pembroke fell well short. 
Blackwell’s opening partner, Pete McGilloway, had made 31 (five fours) in a stand of 44 before giving a catch to Tom Kaijaks off Steve Durston, before No 3 David Dredge kept momentum going with a four and a six in his 21. 
Blackwell himself was eventually lbw to Andrew Price after five boundaries in his patient 92-ball knock, and at 118 for 4 it was Nick Shelmerdine with 18 (two fours), and Sam Burrows with 16 (three fours) who took the home side to 170 all out. 
For Pembroke, wickets were shared between Price (3 for 18), Sam Davies (2 for 26), Jon Rogers (2 for 35), George Davies (2 for 22) and Durston (1 for 38). 
The visitors then lost Kaijaks (5) to Blackwell early, but seemed in with a shout as opener Paul White and Rogers took them to 57 for 1. 
But Cole dismissed both quickly, White after he’d reached 23 (two fours) and Rogers 29 (six fours), and from there wickets tumbled despite an entertaining 22 from No 8 Sam Davies, including two fours and a maximum. 
For The Stags Cole finished with 5 for 40, McGilloway 3 for 20, Blackwell 1 for 21 and Dredge 1 for 7. 


Llangwm enjoy their easy success

Leaders Llangwm cane Kilgetty


Noah Davies - five wickets for Llangwm pace manLlangwm (47 for 1) beat Kilgetty (46 all out) by 9 wickets 

Scorers: Janice Brick and Rose Jenkins. 
It wasn’t much of a contest at Pill Parks as leaders Llangwm made light work of a Kilgetty side now seemingly destined to go down to Division 3. 
The visitors were all out for 46 – 24 of which were from Richard Cope as Noah Davies ripped through the batting with 5 for 23, and there were more wickets for Steve Mills (3 for 13) and Chris Inward (2 for 0). 
Taine Brace (1 for 28) did strike in the reply but Mills (19 not out) ensured Llangwm coasted home.
