Dock fall short as Saundersfoot win again

SAUNDERSFOOT picked up their second win in a row on Saturday (May 14) as they beat Pembroke Dock by 56 runs.

Saundersfoot beat champions Neyland last week and, having been asked to bat after Pembroke Dock had chosen to field, they were bowled out for 216 on the penultimate ball of their innings.

Danny Caine made an early score of 21 for Saundersfoot before he was caught by Tom Grimwood off the bowling of Jamie White.

Sam Franklin and Tom Mansbridge then formed an excellent partnership, sharing 134 runs for the second wicket.

Franklin smashed seven fours and five sixes in his score of 71 from 51 balls but he was then caught by Jake Griffiths off the bowling of Nick Daley.

Soon after, Mansbridge, who had hit seven fours and two sixes in his score of 65, was also out to Daley, leaving Saundersfoot on 174-3.

However, Saundersfoot’s innings began to fall apart after their good start and only one other batsman made it into double figures.

Nav Kawale added a late score of 11 but the Dock came back well to bowl Saundersfoot out.

Nick Daley had a five-wicket haul, finishing with figures of 5-38 while his son Rhys also claimed two wickets for the loss of 24 runs.

Billy Wood (1-19), Jamie White (1-19) were also amongst the wickets for the Dock.

Jake Griffiths fell soon after as the Dock were reduced to 63-4.

Daley and Archie Hillier-Wood shared 44 runs for the fifth wicket as they looked to keep their side in the game.

Hillier-Wood scored 19 but he was then bowled by Nav Kawale who then did the same to Billy Wood with the very next ball.

There was no hat trick for Kawale but he had reduced the Dock to 107-6.

Daley was joined by father Nick and they added 27 runs for the seventh wicket, with Rhys reaching his first 50 for Pembroke Dock.

Rhys was then run out by Tom Mansbridge on a score of 54 and soon after, Nick was bowled by Mansbridge on a score of 18.
