THIS year’s Lady Taverners girls’ cricket tournament was more popular than ever, with Ysgol y Preseli pupils from Crymych putting on a fine show.

Over 150 girls from secondary schools across the county competed at the event held at the Dome, Haverfordwest High VC School sponsored by Valero Refinery Pembroke, Sport Pembrokeshire and Cricket Wales.

The event was so popular that schools had to be limited to just one team per age group.

Talks are in place to expand the tournament for next year’s event.

The final of the U13s event saw Preseli triumph over Henry Tudor School. The scores were neck and neck after six of the eight overs with the last pair of Preseli girls taking the game away from Henry Tudor School.

Earlier, there was a very close first game in Group One between Preseli and Greenhill. Preseli won helping them win Group One.

The Under 15s was equally as competitive with Milford Haven winning one pool and Preseli the other. The slightly more experienced cricketers in the Milford Haven team prevailed to see them run out as winners.
