DESPITE the forecasts of wet weather, cricket in Pembrokeshire produced some great action last weekend ­- including St Ishmaels' low-scoring win over Llechryd, in what proved to be an extraordinary encounter of bowling prowess.

David Dunfee's 8-16 ensured that St Ishmaels were restricted to 78ao, despite Daniel Richards making 45no - but Llechyrd were then bowled out for a paltry 56, with Jonathan Pawlett claiming 5-13, and Andrew Pawlett 2-15.

Neyland continued their winning ways by beating Haverfordwest by six wickets. Jake Merry’s 26 helped Haverfordwest to 128 for 9, but Clive Tucker’s 3-32 wasn’t enough as Nick Koomen’s 49 helped the defending champions to a match-winning total of 129-4.

Dan Sutton continued his fine form in Cresselly’s six wicket victory over Narberth, after the hosts had hit 163-4.
