Six-wicket win for Carew

Carew (78 for 4) beat Llangwm (75 all out)
A smashing undefeated innings of 32 by Tom Davies helped Carew to a six-wicket win over Llangwm after the home side looked in trouble at 7 for 3 as they chased Llangwm’s tally of 76 all out.
Davies joined Tim Hicks with their side still in a little bother at 32 for 4 and they put on 46 runs with few alarms to get their side off to a winning start as Davies had five fours in his classy cameo.
Asked to bat first, Llangwm had also struggled against tight bowling from Matthew Phillips (3 for 9 in six overs), Tim Hicks (1 for 11), Scott Helmich (3 for 33) and Rhys Davies (3 for 3 in seven miserly overs.) Joseph Kiff (13), Gary Philips (13) and Chris Inward were the principal Llangwm scorers in their 76 all out from 34 overs.
This total looked challenging as Nick Scourfield (0), Gareth Lewis (2) and skipper Robbie Hicks (4) all departed early to Chris Inward and Andrew Harries, with Rhys Davies contributing before he also departed with the score on 30. That brought together Tim Hicks, who smashed a six into the gardens as well as four fours in his 29 not out, and Tom Davies stroked five boundaries as Carew eventually strolled home by six wickets.
