Vic­tory No.4 for Llechryd

Llanelli Star - - LOCAL CRICKET -

THE Llechryd band­wagon con­tin­ues to roll mer­rily along with a fourth win on the trot in divi­sion two of the Pem­broke County Cricket League after they beat vis­i­tors Kil­getty by seven wick­ets.

As it stands John Cur­ran and team-mates are a point be­hind lead­ers Nar­berth and have al­ready drawn 23 points clear of Hook in third.

The in­fec­tious en­thu­si­asm ra­di­ated by young skipper Cur­ran is rub­bing off on oth­ers as ev­ery player strives to do his bit for the side and hope­fully help mount a pro­mo­tion chal­lenge.

The main­stay of the Kil­getty in­nings was opener Ross Hardy with 40, but when he was caught on the bound­ary by Cur­ran the in­nings folded and the vis­i­tors were all out for 114.

Seamer Gra­ham Keen snapped up 3-25 and there were two wick­ets apiece for fa­ther and son Peter and James Bet­te­ley and also Cur­ran.

The home side had few prob­lems over­haul­ing the mod­est to­tal de­spite suf­fer­ing a cou­ple of hic­cups, no­tably when Johnny Lewis went for two and Rhys Beard got a golden duck.

Cur­ran (32), who was bowled going for a big hit, and James Bet­te­ley (48no) shared in an open­ing stand of 55 and Joe Mans­field was un­beaten on 25.

Chris­tian Phillips picked up two wick­ets.

Crymych won by six wick­ets against Haver­ford­west 4ths in divi­sion four, with Richard Thorne (27no) and James Ge­orge (33no) guid­ing their side to vic­tory.

In the same divi­sion, Llechryd 2nds went down to a six-wicket away de­feat against lead­ers Ney­land 2nds. The Teifisider­s posted 175 and the hosts got the runs for the loss of four wick­ets.

The main run-get­ters for Llechryd were Tom Beard (48) and Ol­lie Roberts (40).
