Match Report

On a very warm day in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire Youth won the toss and batted first in a 40 over match. Although the Youth lost an early wicket, the next two partnerships took the total to just over the 100 mark. A fourth wicket also fell at 101, but this led to a long partnership of 126 for the fifth wicket and, although a further wicket was lost, the innings closed at 249 for 6. Half centuries were scored for the Youth by John Mansbridge (71*), Aled Phelps (56) and Tom Mansbridge (52), with Alex Saunders taking 3-45 and Matthew Davies taking 2-31.

The XL reply didn’t start very well, as we were 53 – 4 off just 15 overs. This, however, brought our skipper Simon Holliday to the wicket and he transformed the match. Simon led the way in three fine partnerships (49, 87 and 62 unbroken) and scored a fine century (117*) himself along the way. He was well supported by Matthew Davies (35) and Josh Hicks (30), and led the way to a last over winning score of 251 – 6. L Davies was the best bowler, with 2-17, with the other wickets being spread amongst the other bowlers.

This was an excellent match, played in very good conditions, and the host club deserve our thanks for looking after us.
