Juniors report by Martin Jones:

Llechryd U11s 274 beat Haverfordwest U11s 257

MONDAY evening saw Llechryd under 11s play host to travelling Haverfordwest.

The opening Haverfordwest pair of Robbie Sterling and Harri Atyeo did very well against the quick bowling of Flo Cartwright and accuracy of Alex James, with a boundary for each and some good running between the wickets.

Olly Hicks and Megan Bateman were the next pair out. Some sharp fielding from Llechryd's Charlie Pardoe was needed to keep the runs down.

Imogen Hicks and Osian Mills were now at the crease. After a few tight overs Isobel Dunkeld was on to bowl the 12th. Mills took a liking to this, launching a massive 6 over square leg. Dunkeld held her composure and followed up with a great wicket.

The final pairing, Ed Raymond and Deri Field knew they needed to add vital runs, Field showing bravery returning to bat after a nasty knock.

Cerith Gill and Callum Pardoe bowled in tandem to do their best to keep the score down.

Haverfordwest finished the innings on a respectable 257.

Llechryd decided to open the batting with Cerith and Oscar.

Haverfordwest showed their intent, taking 2 wickets in the first three balls

Cerith responded with a classy cover drive for 4.

Next in was Alex and Callum. There was no end to the action with wickets falling and the ball sailing over the boundary.

The duo of Charlie and Dewi marched in to bat and the action didn't let up for a minute. With quick running and boundaries momentarily interrupted with a stunning catch in the deep from Haverfordwests Harri Atyeo.

It was still all to play for when Flo and Isobel came to bat as the final pairing. Some classic cricket shots by the batsmen and cracking fielding highlighted the skills on display from both sides.
