Fisher stars to send Ammanford into final

AMMANFORD marched into the final of the Welsh Cup on Sunday (Aug 19) hanging on to the shirt tails of their in-form all-rounder Matthew Fisher.

He demolished Cardiff with a little help from his friends in Sunday’s semi-final at the Park.

Cardiff elected to bat and, in the absence of Dan Roberts, Fisher opened the bowling with his left arm seam as a change from the usual spin.

He took six wickets for 19 in his 8 overs, three of them clean bowled with the other three lbw.

Sean Coaker, Alun Evans, Matthew Roberts and Josef Davies were the support act with a wicket each.

Cardiff were all out for 88 inside 30 overs, the only double figure contributions coming from Steffan Jones (29), Sisodya (19) and Kirtley (15).

Despite losing both openers with the score on 14, Ammanford made short work of overtaking the Cardiff total, thanks to – yes, you guessed – Matthew Fisher.

Together with Craig Maloney (20no), Fisher hit 8 fours and 2 sixes in his unbeaten half century.

Cardiff were beaten by 8 wickets inside 18 overs.

Ammanford take on Neyland, who beat Premier League Ynysygerwn, in the final at the Swalec Stadium on Sunday, September 2.

It will be their second visit to the Swalec this summer having already won the Premier League T20 final.
