Pembroke County Cricket Club Division 2:

Johnston (118 all out) lost to Llechryd (119-1) by 9 wickets

A sparkling half century from Liam James wasn’t enough to give Johnston a first win of the season as their total was easily overhauled by promotion chasing Llechryd.

James scored 69 of his side’s 118 runs, with dad Steve also adding a steady 16 but Peter (4-28) and James Betterley (1-28), Graham Keen (1-39), Mike Fletcher (2-4), Rhys Beard (1-17) and Mike Carter (1-0) kept the visitors in control.

And they blitzed past the target as despite Keegan Codd removing James Betterley for 23, Carter (53 not out) and John Mansfield (35 not out) got the job done with room to spare.

Kilgetty (147 all out) lost to Narberth (221 all) out by 74 runs

Lewis Hough had a blinder all round for Narberth as they had too much for Kilgetty at Kingsmoor.

Opener Hough made 52 as his side reached 221 all out in their innings, with nine fours along the way.

Richie Adams also made 35 but it was No 5 Kyle Quartermaine however who really added impetus, reaching 50 in just 21 balls and going on to finish on 63 – 44 in boundaries via seven fours and three sixes.

For Kilgetty, Levi Hughes led the bowling with 4-39, Jack Parkinson took 3-46, and Matthew Lewis, Anthony Bevan, and Oli Gamble all had a wicket each,

It was Hough who then took 4-26 to ensure the home side didn’t get near the total, despite Kyle Marsh hitting five fours and two maximums as he top scored with 38.

There were also runs for Jack Parkinson (23), Toby Poole (20), and Christian Phillips (21), but Mathew Johns was also in form with 3-38, while Loui Davies took 2-40 and Mike Reekie had a wicket to complete the Narberth win.

Carew 2nds (151 all out) lost to Haverfordwest 2nds (155 all out) beat by 4 runs

There was a thrilling finish at Carew 2nds as Matthew Vaughan took three late wickets to secure Town 2nds a four run win.

Chasing 156, The Rooks were almost home on 141-7 when Vaughan delivered a superb spell of 3-5 in 2.2 overs.

Batting first, The Town were reduced to 49-3 by Jacob Knox, who took the wickets of David Haynes (28), James Marchant (16) and Evan Watts (0) in his spell of 3-33.

Dan Field and Huw Scriven bolstered the home side though with a stand of 62, Field making 28 (four fours) and Scriven 34 (five fours and a six) before both fell to Aaron Hinman.

Hinman went on to take 5-35, while Rhys Grigg (1-44) and Barry Evans (1-14) also had a wicket each, and despite 14 from No 9 Simon Williams the total looked a modest one.

But Carew were soon in trouble themselves at 56-4 despite 31 from opener Eugene McCarney (six fours), before No 5 Alex Wilks seemingly put them in command with a knock of 48 (two fours).

But he was seventh man out after nicking a Marchant delivery to Huw Scriven, and then came that dramatic finish as Vaughan took the scalps of Rhys Canton (17), Scott Powell (0) and Hinman (0).

Marchant meanwhile finished with 5-43, Teo Krul 1-16 and Watts 1-39.

Hook (147-4) beat Cresselly 2nds (146-4) by 6 wickets

Hook gave a disciplined fielding display to restrict Cresselly 2nds to a modest total before sealing the win with room to spare.

The visitors laboured to 146-4 in 45 overs, Neal Lewis (5) falling LBW early on to Aled Phelps (1-42), before a 58 stand between Richard Harries and young Charlie Arthur.

Harries hit 36 (four fours) but was trapped before by Matthew Holder (1-26), and Arthur top scored with 40 (four fours) before giving a catch to Phelps off Callum James (1-27).

Tim Webb (4) was also bowled by Bradley Flood (1-24), but 30 not out from Lyn Richards, and a quickfire 17 not out (a for and a six) from skipper Matthew Lewis gave the Doves hope.

And the hope became greater when Hook were 42-3, Harries removing Jacob Lay (9), Phelps (16) and George James (0) on route to figures of 3-33.

But Craig Nutty and Jamie Phelps moved the score onto 127 before Nutty went for 61, bowled by Matthew Lewis (1-15) after a knock that included four fours and two sixes.

But Phelps finished 49 not out, and Flood (4 not out) helped him finish the job in the 29th over.

Pembroke Dock (185-8) drew with Pembroke (238-6)

The defiance of Dock No 9 Pete Kingdom denied Pembroke maximum points as he hit an unbeaten half century.

Having made 238-6, the visitors had the home side 61-6 and then 126-8 but Kingdom held firm with 59 not out, although it wasn’t enough to earn his side any losing draw points.

Pembroke openers Andrew Hay and Paul White had earlier piled on 89 for the first wicket before Jake Davies bowled Hay for 48 (eight fours and a six), and then Billy Wood shifted momentum by removing Phil Hay (16) and White, who had eight fours in his 57.

But Jonathan Rogers cracked six fours and two sixes in his 59 not out, and skipper Jack Harries (19) and Jamie Kaijaks (23) helped push Pembroke to an imposing total.

For the Dock, Wood finished 3-50, Davies 2-43, and Jamie White 1-49.

There reply started badly though when Rob Smythe had Davies caught by Phil Hay for a duck, and although opener Luke Murray 22 and Nick Daley 14 (three fours), the top six struggled,

But then came the resistance as Thomas Grimwood made 21 and White a counter attacking 33, with five fours and a six.

Kingdom did likewise with seven fours and three sixes and Niall Brunton (11 not out) also stayed solid, although it was still 29 points for the visitors.
