Pembroke County Cricket Club Division 1: Haverfordwest (57 all out) lost to St Ishmaels (95 all out) by 38 runs

Tish spinner Andrew Pawlett was the hero as his seven wicket haul sealed a great win for his side at The Racecourse - after they had seemingly blown their chances when they were all out for 95.

But then Phil Cockburn only needed to use two bowlers in Brennan Devonald (3 for 35) and left-armer Pawlett, who had The Town in knots with 7-20.

Haverfordwest were missing key all rounder Simon Holliday to injury but it didn't seem to matter at tea, after the pace duo of Archie Thomas and Ashley James reduced Tish to 24-5 before Phil Cockburn (four boundaries in his 27) and Jordan Milich (20) were the only Tish batsman to make any impact.

And the visitors lasted just 25 overs as Thomas (6-4) and James (3-7) alongside a run out from Chris Fitzpatrick.

But as Pawlett wheeled away at the bottom end and Devonald pounded his way down the slope Haverfordwest were soon in trouble at 28-5 – and only No 3 Lee Summons showed any kind of form with 24.

He was still there with the score 57-9 before being skittled by Pawlett with just two balls of his spell to go, and Tish notched a remarkable 38 run win.
