Pembroke County Cricket Club Division 1: Lawrenny (85-0) beat Haverfordwest (81-0) by 10 wickets

New signing Kurtis Marsh stood out for Lawrenny as the batting woes of Haverfordwest continued.

Having been skittled for 85 by Tish last week, Danny Potter's men were yesterday shot out for 81 before Marsh and Harry Thomas eased the home side to a 10 wicket win.

The Town did have Simon Holliday back and almost inevitably he top scored after opening partner Mike Jones had been bowled by Rob Williams for a duck.

Holliday and No 3 Lee Summons took the score to 56-1 but then the danger man holed out to Marsh off Ryan Morton when well set on 29 (five fours and a six).

And that prompted a collapse as the next five batsmen Potter (0), Ben Field (2), Jake Merry (0), Adam James (0) and Chris Fitzpatrick registered just two runs between them.

Summons also fell to Williams for 28 (five fours) as the Town hit huge trouble at 65-8 as Williams took 4-24.

And despite a bit of late resistance by Jack Scriven (8 not out), Archie Thomas (3) and Clive Tucker (4) also fell quickly as Marsh (3-7) and Morton (3-17) helped clean the visitors up in 30.4 overs.

And it took the home side just 12 overs to pass the total with the bat – Harry Thomas continuing his form with 30 not out (seven fours) and Marsh cracking seven fours and a six to end unbeaten on 43.

And the win now takes Joe Kidney’s team up to third, above Haverfordwest and just 16 points off leaders Neyland.
