Pembroke (125-3) lost to Burton (126-2) by 8 wickets

A sparking innings by Toby Hayman helped Burton coast to victory against Pembroke.

The home side lost only three wickets in establishing a reasonable score before the visitors eased through to the last eight.

Andrew Hay (42), Jack Harries (30),  Lee Butler (20) and Paul White (13) led Pembroke to their 125-3 against steady bowling for Burton by Matthew Webb (1 for 22) and Morgan Scale (2 for 25)/. And although James Davies, Dan Llewellyn, Luke Hayman and Jack Davies didn’t claim a wicket between them they didn’t conceded a huge number of runs.

Then Hayman, who was disappointed to  go cheaply the previous week, laid into the Pembroke attack with a string of boundaries in his splendid 59 not out, assisted by Jonathan Venables (24) and Morgan Scale (26).

Rob Smythe (1-13) and Jack Harries (1-29) grabbed wickets for the home side but it is Burton who will now meet another Division 2 team in the Bowl next week, as they host Lamphey.
