Cup dreams are still alive

Llanelli Star - - CRICKET -

BRON­WYDD’S fine as­so­ci­a­tion with the Crick­eter Vil­lage Cup con­tin­ued when they won the re­gional fi­nal with a six-wicket vic­tory at Cres­selly.

The home team elected to bat and the open­ing pair of Daniel Sut­ton and Phil Wil­liams took the score to 39 after 10 overs be­fore the for­mer was out for 23.

Si­mon Cole (51) and Phil Wil­liams (64) put on 100 for the sec­ond wicket and at 139 with nine overs left the hosts were look­ing to post a score near­ing 200. But Mathew Vaughan with 3-31 and a wicket each for James Cale, Tom Glee­son and Colin Tucker re­stricted the fi­nal to­tal to 185-6 after 40 overs.

Tucker set the tone by tak­ing 1-16 off eight overs.

Bron­wydd open­ers Cale and Philip How­ell put on 47 be­fore the lat­ter was out for 14. Cale was the steady­ing in­flu­ence on the early part of the in­nings and with Oli Furneaux (18) and Meirion Davies, he helped take the score to 120 when he was run out for a fine 59.

Car­wyn Jones joined Davies and they struck 24 off the 37th over to take the game away from Cres­selly.

Davies was un­beaten on 42 and Jones was 33 not out from only 14 de­liv­er­ies.

Bron­wydd visit War­wick­shire to play Fil­lon­g­ley on June 23 in the last 32 of the com­pe­ti­tion.
