Pembroke County Cricket Club Division 2:

Carew 2nds (121-1) beat Cresselly 2nds (116-9)

The derby game at Carew was a one sided one as Eugene McCarney and Robbie Hicks blasted The Rooks to a 9 wicket win over Cresselly 2nds.

The Doves opted to bat but struggled to just 116-0 in 40 overs, after openers Lyn Richards (11) and Jamie Goldsworthy (7) both fell to Jacob Knox.

No 3 Charlie Arthur made 18 but it was Stefan Jenkins who top scored, hitting four fours in his 31 – but Carew kept the squeeze on throughout with wickets shared between Knox (2-13), Barry Evans (2-24), McCarney (2-8), Aaron Hinman (1-23) and Rhys Canton (1-18).

Cresselly got the early strike they needed in the Carew reply as the talented Arthur bowled Haydn Shapcott (7), but opener McCarney went on to crack five fours in his 54 not out and he was joined Hicks, who his six fours and a maximum in his unbeaten 49, as the home side won it inside 31 overs.

Hook (84 all out) lost to Pembroke (124 all out)

Hook’s recent momentum was halted as a haul of 4-30 from Rob Smythe led Pembroke to a win that seemed unlikely at tea after they’d been 124 all out.

The visitors were asked to bat and all their top five got starts, but no one could push on as Paul White made 33, Andrew Hay 19 (four fours), Phil Hay 21 (three fours), skipper Jack Harries 17 (two fours) and Jonathan Rogers 16.

But some poor movements between the wickets cost of the as the Hay boys were both run out, as was No 11 Smythe, with Matthew Holder also doing real damage with 5-29 in nine overs. Aled Phelps also took 2-31.

But the Hook reply stuttered from the moment Rogers had Jake Wicks caught for a duck by White early on. Opener George James did continue his good form with 24, including two sixes and a four, but after he became one of Smythe’s four victims only Craig Nutty (13) reached double figures.

Alongside Smythe’s haul Rogers finished with 2-33, Sam Davies 2-8, and White 1-10 to wrap up the win after 34 overs.

Johnston (78 all out) lost to Narberth (281-6) by 203 runs

A brutal ton from Kyle Quartermaine set up a big win for Narberth at Glebelands.

He came in at No 5 and hit 11 fours and eight sixes to finish 115 not out off 45 balls – leading the visitors to 281-6 in their 45 overs.

The platform had been set early on by openers Ritchie Adams (23) and Hadd Luff, who hit eight fours and a six in his 82.

To their credit Johnston did keep plugging away and Mark Hicks took 3-68, while Liam James took 2-51.

But wickets fell regularly in their reply after veteran Steve James had made 18, before a late flurry from Liam Boswell who hit three fours and three sixes in his quickfire 40.

But Louis Davies took 4-10 in seven overs, while Lewis Hough finished with 3-3 in just 4.1 overs, and Matthew Johns (2-35) helped finish the job.

Pembroke Dock (162-8) drew with Llechryd (258-5)

It wasn’t quite a 30 point win for leaders Llechryd but they still came away satisfied from Pembroke Dock after yet another century for John Curran.

Despite the rain this week the Imble Lane surface was, as usual, in prime condition for batting and the visitors took full advantage.

Things started well for the Dock when James Betteley (8) fell to Billy Wood, but then Curran and John Lewis took command.

The latter made 63 before being bowled by Nick Daley, who also trapped Rhys Beard (9) LBW and eventually had Curran removed in the deep as he took 3-45 – but by that point the opener had reached 106 to notch his fourth ton of the summer.

Sam Smith (37 not out) and Thomas Davies (20 not out) also boosted the total late on after Wood had bowled Graham Keen (7) in his 2-68.

The Dock were soon in trouble at 32-3 but then it was Scott Griffiths and skipper Craig Butland to held up the visitors.

Griffiths made 38 but it was Butland who top scored with eight boundaries in his 66.

When they both fell Llechryd sensed blood but despite wickets for Rhys (3-26) and Tom (1-1) Beard, Betteley (2-30), and Keen (1-28), the ninth wicket pairing of Niall Brunton (5 not out) and Adam Phillips (0 not out) held out.
