Youth beats ex­pe­ri­ence

Llanelli Star - - LOCAL CRICKET -

THE sec­onds match be­tween Llan­deilo and Kid­welly in divi­sion seven pit­ted youth against ex­pe­ri­ence – and youth won out as Kid­welly eased home.

Hav­ing been put in to bat by Llan­deilo cap­tain Max Mun­day, Kid­welly lost early wick­ets and there was a prospect of a low to­tal.

But the young Kid­welly mid­dle order, headed by the tal­ented Zac Wil­liams (34) and Harry Con­ick (50), coun­ter­at­tacked and put their side in a promising po­si­tion.

Llan­deilo man­aged a late rally, with Tom Prosser tak­ing 4-45 with his leg spin, and the in­nings fin­ished on 132-8, a rea­son­able to­tal on a damp Cae Wil­liam pitch.

Youth then trumped ex­pe­ri­ence as from the start as Kid­welly ground down the Llan­deilo bats­men.

Opener Clif­ford John­son was run out with­out fac­ing a ball, while a suc­ces­sion of bats­men lost their wick­ets to a dan­ger­ous seam at­tack, with Lewis Owen (4-3) par­tic­u­larly im­pres­sive.

Llan­deilo man­aged to bat 23.3 overs, but their to­tal of 34 all out will worry their fol­low­ers.
