Easy vic­tory pushes Llechryd closer to pro­mo­tion

Llanelli Star - - CRICKET -

LLECHRYD took an­other step to­wards pro­mo­tion from di­vi­sion two of the Pem­broke County Cricket League when strolling to a ninewicket vic­tory at Kil­getty.

The Teifisider­s’ pro­mo­tion hopes were fur­ther boosted when third­placed Hook lost against Pem­broke Dock, giv­ing the pace­set­ters a 69-point buf­fer over Hook.

Steve Cur­ran and his team visit bot­tom side Cres­selly Se­conds this week­end. And af­ter meet­ing Haver­ford­west Se­conds, Pem­broke and Pem­broke Dock, they bring the cur­tain down on their cam­paign with a home game against Nar­berth that could be for the ti­tle.

Even with­out a few un­avail­able reg­u­lars, Llechryd had things very much their own way as they dis­missed Kil­getty for 81.

Kyle Marsh (26) and his brother Ge­off (24) were the main con­trib­u­tors for Kil­getty, while seam­ers Gra­ham Keen (4-14), Peter Bet­ter­ley (331) and Cur­ran (2-19) did the dam­age for the vis­i­tors.

Llechryd lost Cefin Evans for 17, but Michael Carter (27 not out) and Cur­ran (25 not out) saw their side safely home.

Llechryd Se­conds went down by six wick­ets against di­vi­sion four lead­ers Ney­land 2nds at the RDM Oval.

Llechryd posted 166-6 in their al­lot­ted overs and the vis­i­tors got the runs for the loss of four wick­ets.

In the same di­vi­sion, it was plain sail­ing for Crymych with a ninewicket win over base­ment boys Haver­ford­west Fourths at Glandy Cross where the vis­i­tors were bowled out for just 29.
