Llangwm captain ‘full of pride’ after Harrison Allen win

LLANGWM captain Matthew Kiff said he was ‘full of pride’ as he lifted the Harrison Allen Bowl trophy on Saturday (August 27).

Llangwm won the final against Haverfordwest by six wickets to seal the club’s first Bowl win since 1993.

Speaking after the game he told the Herald: “It’s beautiful, words can’t describe how long its been for our club and how much it means to us and this group of boys.”

Llangwm held an 81-run lead after their first innings score of 207-2 in which Matthew scored 50 off just 22 balls.

He then told his team-mates to go out and play as they have done all season as they looked to fend off an early charge from Haverfordwest.

He said: “Just told them to go out there like we’ve always played really, don’t think about the 22 overs, just play like a 45 over-game. We knew in 45 overs we’d get enough run-rate to cover that. And to go out there and enjoy it, don’t let the nerves get to you.”

After Town were bowled out for 162 in their second innings, with Joe Phillips taking six wickets, Llangwm needed just 82 to win the game.

Town did take four Llangwm wickets but Luke Brock and Noah Davies stayed calm and they saw their side to victory.

“We’ve played well all season, everyone’s got confidence, everyone can bat and they’ve all got their own unique talents so we just used that”, Kiff added.

We asked if Llangwm would be looking to go for the Division 1 title next season and Matthew’s reply was ‘definitely’.

Llangwm’s Bowl win caps off a fantastic season for the club and it seems there is still more to come.
