Pembrokeshire U16s Select XI played Pembrokeshire and District Over 40s Club at Whitland Cricket Club recently. The 40 Club batted first on a fast outfield at Whitland. Greg Thompson and Jack Parkinson opened the bowling for the U16s and bowled tight lines against Jonathan Twigg and Dewi Davies. Thompson finished for 1-17 off his five overs with a dismissal of Davies (1), aided by a sharp slip catch by Kurtis Marsh. Parkinson finished with 0-5 respectively. A run out by Thompson saw the 40 club at 14-2 in the seventh over. It was now the turn of the Haverfordwest duo - Jonathan Twigg and Richard Scriven to take the attack to the U16 change bowlers of James Davies and Kurtis Marsh. The score moved on to 86 runs after 20 overs. The introduction of Scott Jones saw Twigg fall for 39. Tom Harries, of Llandyssul, aided by Scriven moved the score on to 132 in the 28th over. A sharp run out by Jones saw Harries go for 28 and Scriven was caught on the boundary by Thompson, bowled Jones for 62, including one big six and 11 fours. Chris Fitzpatrick was stumped by Bevan, bowled Jones the next ball. Geraint Rees bowled well with Toby Hayman and Adam Parr each picking a wicket up at the end. Peter Doyle (13 no) and captain, Phil Sutton, who eventually put himself in, showed his class with a quick fire 20 and the 40 Club ended on 199-8, in their 40 overs. A gorgeous tea was provided by Janice and Mathew Webb, with the whole day organised by Paul Webb. Toby Hayman and Tomos Lewis opened the batting for the U16s and Chris Fitzpatrick and John Lodge were bowling the 40 Club. Hayman has been in scintillating form this year. He defended his wicket well and at the same time dispatched anything loose to the boundary with aplomb. Lewis stroked some nice shots through extra cover, before a fine catch by Sutton bowled Lodge for 10 - this brought Dafydd Bevan to the crease and he slowly built his innings. However, at the other end, there was no stopping Hayman, who raced to 50 in the 13th over, despite tight bowling by Fitzpatrick. The young spinners Nick Evans and Peter Doyle could not contain the flow of runs. The 40 Club tried various options of bowling with only Sutton being able to slow the run rate down. Fitzpatrick returned and had Bevan caught (35) by Scriven in the 30th over , with the score on 146. Hayman was joined by Jacob Knox and ended up on 18 no. Hayman reached his maiden century and went on to score 128 no, including three sixes and 20 fours. The U16s passed the total in the 37th over. This was a tremendous knock by Toby Hayman, which shows the progress and maturity that he has developed this year. At the end of the day, cricket was the winner as there was some fine batting by individuals on the day on an excellent Whitland wicket, with the game well umpired by Trevor Evans and Huw Davies.
