South Wales Premier League Round up

IN the South Wales Premier League, AMMANFORD registered their fourth successive Premier League victory with an impressive six wicket win over Mumbles at Ammanford Park on Saturday.

Mumbles batted first and were restricted to 184-9 with Aneurin Donald scoring 92 before he was bowled leaving the visitors on 127-4.

Aneurin Norman added 35 but the remainder of the Mumbles batsmen had little to offer as Matthew Fisher did the damage with three wickets.

A disastrous start to Ammanford’s response saw Jack Murphy fall lbw to Norman before the balance was restored through a second wicket partnership of 84 between opening batsman Elis Richards and Dan Roberts who made 47.

Fisher then scored an unbeaten half century to secure victory for the home side.

On Saturday, Ammanford are at home as they take on Cardiff.

In Division 2 of the South Wales Premier League Carmarthen Wanderers earned a 12-run win over Newport Fugitives.

The Wanderers batted first and made a modest total of 172-8 in their innings as Leighton Walters scored 41 while Josh Thomas also made the same score and Steve Mills added 26.

The Fugitives began their reply well and were 143-4 but Leighton Walters returned to take four wickets and swing the game in his side’s favour.

They were eventually all out for 160 as the Wanderers move up to fourth place in the table.

Llanelli were beaten again as they lost to Ynystawe by six wickets. They were asked to bat first but recorded four ducks as they were all out for 98.

Marcus Leaf scored 24 for his side and Craig Howells added 20 while Iwan Rees was the only other batsman to make it into double figures.

Morgan Hodges then scored 28 for Ynystawe and Matthew Davies added 23 as they reached 99-4 in the twenty fifth over.

On Saturday, Llanelli will look to get back to winning ways when they take on Tata Steel while Carmarthen Wanderers are away as they take on Malpas.
