NEYLAND finished their season in style as they beat Pembroke Dock by 217 runs on Saturday (Aug 20).
The former champions had not found the form of their previous title winning campaigns but they did at least find their form on the final day.
Batting first they racked up an impressive total of 303-8, their highest total of the season, thanks largely to Ross Hardy’s blistering century.
Prior to that, Sean Hannon had scored 39 and Gregg Miller made a score of 48 (10 fours).
Ashley Sutton scored 63 with seven fours and two sixes and there was a late score of 22 from George Evans.
Hardy was the star of the show however, as he hit six fours and ten sixes in his knock of 103 from only 51 balls.
Jamie White took three wickets for the Dock for figures of 3-47 and Ewan McDonald took 2-36.
In reply, Rhys Daley scored 26 and Scott Griffiths scored 13. Jake Davies scored 10 while Neil Gregory finished unbeaten on 15.
That was as good as it got for the Dock though as Andrew Miller claimed five wickets and figures of 5-22.
Gary Lloyd also claimed 4-16 with the other wicket falling to Jack John (1-16).
The result sees Neyland finish in fifth place in the table while Pembroke Dock’s relegation to Division 2 had already been confirmed.
