Johnathan Thomas was then caught and bowled by Morton before Matthew Davies was also caught and bowled by Morton for his third wicket.

Paul Davies had hit five fours and a six in his knock of 42 but he was then bowled by Thomas.

Martin Thomas was then out for a score of 7 as he was bowled by Brad McDermott-Jenkins and Thomas returned to claim his fourth wicket as he had Nathan Evans caught by Patrick Elliot.

Rob Williams then picked up a wicket as he had Gethin Scourfield caught by James Skeels on a score of ten.

Lawrenny made an excellent start to their reply as openers Thomas and James Phillips shared 173 runs for the first wicket to all but seal victory.

Phillips hit ten fours in his knock of 69 before he was eventually bowled by Dylan Blain.

Blain then had McDermott-Jenkins caught and bowled on a score of three but it was too little too late for his side.
