The Pembrokeshire cricket season finally came to a close on Sunday with the Duggie Morris and Alec Colley cup finals.
In The Duggie Morris, held at Oatfield Park, Burton, Haverfordwest deservedly came out on top in a rain-affected game.
After being put into bat, The Town posted 147 all out.
Skipper Simon Holliday hit 35, Ben Field 21, Danny Potter 21 and Adam James 33.
Patrick Hannon took 4-29 for Neyland, but The Town would have been disappointed having been 137-4 after 15 overs.
But they put themselves in pole position after restricting Neyland to 94-9.
Skipper Andrew Miller made 42, but Clive Tucker took 3-31, James 2-16, Avron Roulstone 2-14 and Nigel Morgan 2-10.
The Town then made 123- 7 to set Neyland an unlikely 177 to win. Holliday made 26, Dan Field 17, Potter 19, and there were late cameos from Chris Phillips (16 not out) and Huw Scriven (14).
For Neyland, Gary Lloyd took 2-19 and Miller 2-23.
But before they could start their chase, the rain came down and The Town were awarded the trophy on the basis their first innings score was higher after 15 overs.
In the Alec Colley final, Cresselly seconds beat Carew seconds by nine wickets at Treleet, Pembroke.
The cups were sponsored by the family of the late Duggie Morris and Dickie Parry, of Dyrham Services Station in Robeston Wathen, respectively.
