Saturday saw both senior teams on the brink of victory when rain intervened. Having dismissed Lamphey for 115, Saundersfoot 1st XI were only 40 runs from victory when the rain came. The wickets were shared between D. Caine 3-33, K. Sykes 2-16, S. Cole 4-35 and D. Parcell 1 -21. At the close, Danny Caine was 27 not out. It was a similar story with the 2nd XI. Although Pembroke Dock had reached a decent total of 167, the Saundersfoot reply was cut short at 110 for 3, needing only 57 runs from 22 overs with seven wickets in hand. The main wicket-takers for Saundersfoot were Andrew Evans 3-42 and John Austin 2-12. At the close, the two not out batsmen were Toby Smith (39) and Joe Kidney (33). Earlier in the week, the Under 15s defeated Llechryd by 10 wickets. Batting first, Llechryd could only score 28, which was easily passed for no wickets by Saundersfoot. Jake Marsh almost scored all the runs himself, with 27 not out in three overs. Successful bowlers were Yannic Parker 3-10, Joe Kidney 2-5 and Andrew Evans 2-7, while Roy Osborn took the final wicket with his first ball, meaning he is on a hat-trick when he next bowls. On Friday, the U17s were in action against Cresselly U17s in the Ormond Youth Plate. Batting first, Saundersfoot were given a tremendous start when Paul Brooks and Simon Stanford added 135 for the first wicket. Paul Brooks was out first, scoring a fine 43. Simon Stanford was out in the final over for a well struck 78 containing 12 fours and a six. David Court took three wickets in the final over for Cresselly, leaving Saundersfoot on 172 for 4. In reply, the Cresselly team were always up with the run rate, with a fine knock from Scott Arthur (51). However, it was Simon Allen-Clark who provided the fireworks at the end, scoring 12 off the final over to make the match a tie. His 58 not out included four 4s and three 6s, although 54 extras conceded by Saundersfoot helped the Cresselly cause greatly. The replay is at Cresselly this Friday evening at 6 pm.
