Pembroke County Cricket League

Division 2
Kilgetty 81 all out (2) lost to Llechryd 82 for 1 (30) by 9 wickets

Llechryd managed to get the job done in double quick time at Kilgetty to retain their top spot in division two and their eagerly awaited clash with second placed Narberth in a few weeks will surely decide the championship.

Third in the table Hook crashed to a five-wicket defeat at Pembroke Dock, a result that left the leaders 69 points clear of Hook and it is now very much a two horse race.

John Curran and his men tucked into their after match refreshments long before many teams in Pembrokeshire had changed over after tea as Kilgetty were bowled out for just 81 and Curran and co knocked off the runs very quickly for the loss of just one wicket.

Curran won the toss and inserted the hosts and this looked to be a wise decision when the skipper picked up a couple of early wickets and had it not been for the contribution of Kyle Marsh who made 26 Kilgetty would have struggled to reach fifty.

Graham Keen was the man who caused most of the damage as he took 4-14 with some of his medium pace cutters working wonders but he was well served by super veteran Peter Betterley who returned figures of 3-20.

The visiting bowlers were well served in the field with some excellent catches sticking with both Curran and Johnny Lewis claiming two of the best.

In reply Mike Carter and Kevin Evans opened the batting and they got off to a steady start before Evans, playing his first game for some time, was removed for 19 by Alex Thomas. However Curran with 25 not out and Carter 27 not out saw their side through for a very comfortable win with Llechryd gaining 30 points.
