Basement club Haverfordwest Thirds lost again, this time to Llangwm Seconds, as Graham Jenkins' 41 runs was over half for the visitors, who ended on 79ao, largely thanks to Huw Brock's incredible 5-7.

Will Phillips (3-18) did well fielding against Llangwm Seconds, but scores from Toby Asson (18), Shaun Waller (13) and Marc Davies (13no) meant they ended on 80-5.

In the final game in division three, Neyland Seconds fielded superbly as they were rampant in their victory away at St Ishmaels Seconds.

Scott Jones' century of 108, George Evans' 20 runs and Rhys Power's 35no all helped Neyland Seconds reach 204-6.

Gary Lloyd (4-10) then shone while fielding, as did Tom Pritchard (2-17) and Jack John (2-10), as St Ishmaels Seconds ended on 73ao.

Johnston still lead the way in division three, and are still nine points ahead of Llanrhian, whose victory over Laugharne now sees them 16 points ahead of the third placed side.
