THIS year’s cricket season continues to produce some thrilling matches, with top side Neyland falling just two runs short against Haverfordwest.

The result could prove pivotal in ending Neyland’s dominance over Pembrokeshire County Cricket.

Playing at home, Neyland won the toss and put Haverfordwest into bat, which allowed Ben Field to make a superb half-century (55).

Field was brilliantly supported by Dai Davies who was two short of his half-century with 48. Chris Phillips scored 24.

Jack John took 4 for 12, leaving Haverfordwest on a very gettable score of 158 all out, but when Neyland came to the stumps their batting order collapsed with only Andrew Miller (45), and Paul Murray (30) making notable contributions.

It was Haverfordwest’s bowling attack which stole the show, Ashley James (3 for 39) and Will Phillips (3 for 24) taking three wickets each.

Despite the defeat, Neyland are still top of the pile in division one with Cresselly, Carew and Lawrenny all in the hunt.
