LLANELLI continued their push for promotion to the South Wales Premier League after they comfortably beat Tata Steel on Saturday (Aug 7).

The Division 1 leaders won the toss and chose to field and that proved a good decision as they were able to bowl their opponents out for 62.

Steel lost opener Martin Lewis early on but Richard and Matthew Jones shared 17 runs for the second wicket.

Richard Jones was then run out as the Steel were reduced to 22-2.

Matthew Jones and Matthew Saker shared a good stand of 29 runs for the third wicket as they looked to put their side in a good position.

However, when Jones was trapped leg before by Steven Devonald on a score of 14 it sparked a major collapse as the last seven wickets fell for only 13 runs.

Devonald removed Daniel Melindo in similar fashion before Nathan Ferrell was also trapped leg before by David Richards.

Richards did the same to Adam Jardine as the Steel slipped to 58-6.

That became 59-7 as Jake Watts was bowled by Iwan Rees before Richards bowled Saker on a score of 14.

Richards then had Callum Curtis caught by Benjamin Edwards and Rees bowled David Jones to bring the innings to a close.

Six of Tata’s batsmen failed to score, including their last 5, as Llanelli bowled well with David Richards finishing with excellent figures of 4-4 from his four overs.

Llanelli lost Iwan Rees on a score of 8 in their reply before Steven Devonald was trapped leg before by David Jones.

Owain Baxter made a good score of 25 but he also fell to Jones who then bowled Craig Howells.

That left Llanelli on 46-4 but the Steel were unable to take anymore wickets.

Rhys Harris was not out on 4 while Rhydian Morgan finished unbeaten on 14.

That saw Llanelli to victory inside 21 overs to seal their tenth win of the season.

On Saturday (Aug 14), Llanelli are at home again as they welcome Maesteg to Stradey Park.
