Cricket pre­sen­ta­tion On Septem­ber 15, Llan­gen­nech Cricket Club held its pre­sen­ta­tion evening for the 2018 sea­son with chair­man Keith Thomas wel­com­ing of­fi­cials, play­ers and guests. In an ex­cel­lent sea­son weather-wise he re­viewed the per­for­mances of the club’s se­nior sides, high­light­ing the achieve­ment of the 1st XI in gain­ing promotion into di­vi­sion 1 of the SWCA as cham­pi­ons. The 2nd XI had also been promotion con­tenders un­til the end of Au­gust. There was vic­tory over Llanelli in the Welsh Cup be­fore a de­feat by the even­tual win­ners Am­man­ford, fol­lowed by a last­ball de­feat in the league’s T20 com­pe­ti­tion at Skewen. The mid­week side ended in fourth spot in the league and were also run­ners-up in the bowl com­pe­ti­tion for the sec­ond suc­ces­sive year. Chair­man of the South Wales Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion, Neil Hobbs, pre­sented club cap­tain Matthew Jones with the Glamorgan County Cricket Sup­port­ers Club Cup as well as in­di­vid­ual tro­phies to each par­tic­i­pat­ing player. For the se­nior teams, bat­ting awards were then pre­sented to Scott Lloyd, Michael Lloyd and Geraint Lod­wig, while Si­mon Cle­ment and Iwan Hicks se­cured bowl­ing awards. Jonathan Taube, home on holiday, scored 129 for the 3rd XI against Swansea Civil Ser­vice, a club record for that team. The an­nual awards were pre­sented as fol­lows: James Taube won the Evan John Griffiths Six-Hit award by hit­ting 15 sixes in league matches, two more than his near­est ri­val. The Jim Brown Me­mo­rial Award for Out­stand­ing Achieve­ment was pre­sented by his son Martin to Si­mon Cle­ment for the sec­ond suc­ces­sive year. Llyr Soady-Jack­son re­ceived the Lu Davies Me­mo­rial Tro­phy as the Most Promis­ing Player, while the Play­ers of the Year, cho­sen by play­ers and com­mit­tee, were Si­mon Cle­ment, Iwan Hicks and Geraint Lod­wig. The Clubman of the Year award and the Brin Wil­liams Me­mo­rial Tro­phy was won by Geraint Lod­wig.

The chair­man thanked ev­ery­one for their con­tri­bu­tions and as­sis­tance, and stated that 2019 would be an ex­cit­ing year with the club’s re­turn to the first di­vi­sion. It would also be an ex­pen­sive year with con­tin­u­ally ris­ing costs. Var­i­ous so­cial events are planned for the win­ter to keep the club’s play­ers to­gether and raise funds, and he ap­pealed for ev­ery­one’s sup­port.
