Division 3: Narberth 2nds (112 all out) lost to Herbrandston (230-6) by 118 runs

They needed 12 points to be champions - and Herbie duly did the business at Narberth 2nds on Saturday with a comprehensive win.

It meant big relief for Ryan Davies and co, who have finished third these past two seasons and are now finally back up in Division 2 for the first time since 2012.

“I’m very happy to go up,” skipper Davies told Telegraph Sport.

“As we have got so close the past two seasons, so it’s felt like it has been a long time coming.”

There seemed little doubt about them getting the job done Saturday after piling on 230-6 in their 40 overs.

Leigh Marchant led the way with 68, and Davies himself played a vital hand with a composed 46.

Leigh Walters, who has proved a great addition since joining the club midway through the season, also had another good knock with 31 and there was 27 from Dean John to help set Narberth an improbable total.

The home side did put up resistance as Andrew Williams top scored with 31, and Huw Simpkins (19) and Kyle Williams (24) also held things up.

But yet again there were wickets for Paul Nicholas, who broke the back of the home side with 4-20, while Robert Hood (2-24) and Kristan Bennett (2-33), another to return to the fold this season, also bowled well.

It meant Lamphey’s result against Laugharne was academic in terms of the title, but The Stags did bowl the visitors out for 34 before winning by nine wickets, and they will join Herbie in the second tier next season.
