MAESTEG CELTIC .101-2 SWANSEA CIVIL SERVICE ...................... 99
WITH both teams looking to get their seasons back on track with Maesteg Celtic losing their last two and Swansea Civil Service losing their last four. Batting first after winning the toss, the away side’s Damian Devonald passed the quarter century mark and looked to get his side off to a good start.
However, finishing on 26, he would end the match as his side’s leading scorer for the day as Swansea Civil Service failed to get going. Swansea’s struggles were in large part thanks to the home side’s Phil Poole, taking a brilliant five wickets with two maidens, with the concession of just 20 runs. The away side would in fact not even reach a century before being bowled all out for just 99.
With the home side sensing a first win in three, Morgan Griffiths clearly wanted to put the away side out of their misery as quickly as possible as he made his half century, exactly half of what his side needed to claim victory. And with Matthew Davies also putting on a solid batting display, it took the home side just over 30 overs to reach their target and finally get their season back on track.
