Both first placed Llanrhian Seconds and second placed Hook Seconds lost in division four, allowing Whitland Seconds in third to sneak up behind them.

Llanrhian Seconds batted first away at Crymych, where Ellis Williams' 3-10 and Stef Williams' 3-10 helped keep the league leaders' score down to 91ao.

K Davies tried his best fielding for Llanrhian Seconds, scoring 3-20, but Richard Thorne's 46 runs were huge as Crymych got to 92-5.

Hook Seconds had the chance to potentially overtake into first place, but were unable to catch up to Llechryd Seconds' score of 186-6.

A half century from Llechryd Seconds' Ollie Roberts (59) and great scoring from Aled Bidder (40) gave them a platform to defend upon.

J Phillips' 39, Jamie Phelps' 36 and L Morgan's 31 were all good scores but not enough as Hook Seconds finished on 168-6.

Whitland Seconds did take hold of the opportunity to claw some points back, fielding incredibly away at Burton Seconds through Gethin Benjamin (4-28), Cian Rees (3-16) and Hywel Bevan (2-26).

Saundersfoot Seconds also kept the pressure on, only two points behind Whitland Seconds after a home victory over Lawrenny Thirds.

In the only other game, Kilgetty Seconds made it to 134ao through batting from Brian Cullen (45) and Taine Brace (28), but Jeremy Griffiths scored 6-15, turning the tide for Carew Thirds.
