Pic­ture: Phil Davies CAR­MARTHEN Wan­der­ers’ su­perb start to the sea­son is in dan­ger of be­com­ing de­railed.

Hav­ing made their best ever start to a cam­paign dur­ing their time in the Premier League, pro­duc­ing a run that de­liv­ered five suc­ces­sive vic­to­ries, the Wan­der­ers will be dis­ap­pointed with re­cent per­for­mances.

And that is es­pe­cially the case in the nar­row de­feat against New­port Fugi­tives at Trin­ity Fields on Satur­day.

The Fugi­tives, who are at the bot­tom of the ta­ble, re­stricted the Wan­der­ers to 157-9 off their 50 overs, which looked a com­pet­i­tive to­tal.

Owain Davies top-scored with a care­fully con­structed 29. Owain Bind­ing made 24 and Steve In­ward 21.

Jack Thorpe-Yon, Meirion Thomas and James Did­cote all took two wick­ets for the Fugi­tives.

In re­sponse, the vis­i­tors were wob­bling at 70-5, but their lower-or­der bats­men rode their luck, aided by a dis­ap­point­ing Wan­der­ers field­ing dis­play that was well be­low their usual high stan­dards, to win the match by one wicket with three balls to The home side made 240-8, with spare in a very ex­cit­ing game.
