A CENTURY each from Matthew Morgan and Phil Williams catapulted Cresselly to the top of division one in the Pembroke County Cricket.

Cresselly blew away Haverfordwest winning by 166 runs after making 334 for 3 before bowling Haverfordwest out for 168.

Morgan made a titanic 121 with Williams not far behind, making 109. They were also supported by Iwan Izzard who made 59 not out.

For Haverfordwest, Mikey Jones made a commendable half-century (51), Jake Merry made 35 and Chris Phillips 32, however it wasn’t nearly enough to see off Cresselly who leapfrog Narberth to the top of the league.

Narberth, who beat Lawrenny by just one run last week to catapult them to the top of the league, had another close encounter this week losing to St Ishmaels by 19 runs.

Phil Llewellyn was close to making it a hat-trick of centuries in this round’s cricket, making a huge 95 the Tish.

Title hopefuls and defending champions Neyland suffered a bad weekend, losing to Llangwm by four wickets.

Neyland were put in to bat and made 186 for seven but could do nothing to stop Llangwm storming to 187-6, with Matthew Kiff making an impressive 60.

The defeat sees Neyland drop to fifth 22 points off top side Cresselly.

Down in the lower leagues there was concern when Haverfordwest Fourth’s match versus Llechryd Thirds had to be abandoned due to serious injury to one of the players.

It was reported a batter from Llechryd top-edged a ball which went into his face creating a cut above his eye. Reports from one of the teams say he was stitched up and monitored before making a recovery.
