Cup dreams come to end

Llanelli Star - - CRICKET -

BRON­WYDD’S in­ter­est in the Crick­eter Vil­lage Cup is over af­ter they were de­feated by War­wick­shire side Fil­lon­g­ley.

Due to the un­avail­abil­ity of key play­ers, Bron­wydd trav­elled more in hope of caus­ing an up­set against a team who have reached the last four in pre­vi­ous years.

The hosts bat­ted first and Tom Glee­son and Matthew Vaughan soon had Bron­wydd on top as wick­ets fell reg­u­larly and half of the side were dis­missed with only 54 on the board.

Bron­wydd’s field­ing has been a high­light this year and the en­thu­si­as­tic side gave the bowlers their full sup­port.

Only a pa­tient 30 from Sa­j­jad Ali gave the in­nings any sub­stance as Bron­wydd had the home team back in the pavil­ion with only 125 on the board.

James Dick­son took three wick­ets, with Glee­son and Vaughan claim­ing two each.

The Bron­wydd re­ply got off to the worst pos­si­ble start as they lost their first two wick­ets with only seven on the board.

The bats­men could not build part­ner­ships and the home side got on top with only Car­wyn Jones (32) and Oli Furneaux (23) get­ting into dou­ble fig­ures.

The in­nings ended on a dis­ap­point­ing 72 all out.
