Congratulations to the Hook / Llangwm under 15s squad who last night beat Whitland to reach the county final.
The final will be played against Cresselly / Stackpole at St Ishmaels CC on 16th August starting at 5:30pm.
Match report by Jon Willington
Whitland 56 for 5 v Hook / Llangwm 87 for 5
Captain Callum Jenkins certainly played a skippers role in guiding his young team to the county final in a 31 run victory. Batting first Callum hit 29, matched by Joe Phillips. Lewis Miller went early for 1, Finlay Elrick hit 7 and Seth Willington 3 not out.
Callum then picked up 2 for 7 alongside Lewis Miller 1 for 4 and Jack Phillips 1 for 5 in an excellent team bowling performance that saw nine players bowl.
An excellent performance from this young team ( one U10, two u11, one u12, five u13 players) and a deserved place in the county final.
Good Luck boys in the final
The Hook/Llangwm U 15’s team travel to Whitland tonight in the U15’s Semi final. Stumps at 5:30pm. It would be great to see a good support up there tonight cheering the team on.
Good luck lads
Last night saw Hook U13’s get the better of Kilgetty U13’s in their semi-final clash in Hook. With both teams missing players through holidays or injuries Hook certainly looked to be the stronger of the 2 sides. This proved to be the case as Kilgetty were dismissed for just 18 runs largely due to some great bowling from the Hook team.
Hook then knocked off the required runs within 5 overs to reach the final which will be played next Wednesday 8th August at Cresselly with a 5:30pm start.
Good luck boys in the final
Last nights Bonus Ball was ball 4.
We now have 8 players needing just 1 number to win the Jackpot and all 8 are waiting for different numbers.
The latest player to get down to 1 number is Lisa Willington which is in contrast to hubby Jon Willington who is still to cross off a number.
Jackpot is currently £540
Last night the Hook U11’s picked up the Pembrokeshire U11’s runners up Trophy after losing to Lawrenny in what was a repeat of last year’s final. Both teams came into the game with a 100% record having both won their groups.
Hook batted first against a very accurate Lawrenny bowling attack, who bowled just 1 wide in 16 overs. The Hook batsmen just weren’t given much opportunity to attack as there was hardly a bad ball in sight, but despite this lost just 3 wickets on way to reaching a total of 121. It was always going to be a tough task defending 121 and so proved to be the case with Lawrenny ending on 302-2 off their 16 overs.
What was great to see was that even though the players could see defeat was inevitable in the last few overs they all continued to chase every ball making Lawrenny work for their runs. The bowlers all bowled well but it seemed that any loose ball bowled was dispatched to the boundary.
The game ended with a comfortable victory for a very talented Lawrenny side who were presented with the League Winners Trophy by PCCC Chairman Paul Webb and junior sponsor Colin John.
The boys can hold their heads high as they were without Rhys and Will tonight, who were both on holiday, and a number of the team are still able to play U11’s cricket next season when I’m sure they will be looking to reach the final for a seventh consecutive season.
Well done boys on a great season
