Pembrokeshire Cicket Division One Round Up

After  a long dismal winter that bombarded the country with snow, rain and wind, the Pembrokeshire county league kicked off yesterday with teams no doubt hoping that the weather was going to be kinder to them.

 Unfortunately, it was not to be as the wet weather disturbed two of the five opening first round matches in Division One.
 Carew’s opening match in the defence of their title was one of those to be abandoned. The reigning Champs posted 202-5 with Brian Hall striking an unbeaten century, while Nicky Scourfield knocked 36 and Robbie Hicks posted 35n/o. Their opponents, Lawrenny, only had a short time at the crease before the rain halted play.
 Leaders after week 1 are Whitland after they claimed a 62 run win at St Ishmaels. The visitors batted first and set a total of 177, Jonathan Thomas (53) and David Dunfee (29) were their best scorers. Andrew Pawlett and Andrew Williams picked up a couple of wickets apiece for the hosts.
Dunfee was undoubtedly the star performer on the day - adding to his handy knock, he also snared 7-39 - as he almost single-handedly dispatched the opposing order.
 Meanwhile, Llanrhian were on the wrong end of a ten wicket defeat as they went down at home to Haverfordwest. The hosts were skittled for just 75, with Adam James capturing 6-28 and Nigel Morgan taking 3-7. In reply, Haverfordwest chased down the total without loss with Simon Holiday (36) and Jonathan Strawbridge (39) finishing undefeated.  
 Elsewhere, Neyland claimed 61 run home win over Cresselly, while Narberth’s match against Llangwm was abandoned.
