The flying start by Llechryd in Division Two of the Pembroke County Cricket League continued as John Curran and team-mates sprang a seven wicket win over Kilgetty at the RDM Oval.

After four outings the Teifisiders sit a point behind leaders Narberth and have already drawn 23 points clear of Hook in third.

The infectious enthusiasm radiated by young skipper Curran, who is a car salesman at OC Davies & Son in Penparc, is rubbing off on others as every player strives to do his bit for the side and hopefully help mount a promotion challenge.

The mainstay of the Kilgetty innings was opener Ross Hardy with 40 but when he was caught on the boundary by Curran the innings folded and the visitors were all out for 114.

Seamer Graham Keen snapped three wickets for 25 runs and there were two wickets apiece for father and son Peter and James Betterley and also Curran.

The homesters had few problems overhauling the modest total despite suffering a couple of hiccups, notably when Johnny Lewis went for two and Rhys Beard got a golden duck.

Curran (32), who was bowled going for a big hit and James Betterley (48 not out) shared in an opening stand of 55 and Joe Mansfield was unbeaten on 25.

Christian Phillips picked up two wickets.

Crymych won by six wickets against Haverfordwest 4ths in Division Four with Richard Thorne (27 not out) and James George (33 not out) guiding their side to victory.

In the same division Llechryd 2nds went down to a six-wicket away defeat against leaders Neyland 2nds. The Teifisiders posted 175 and the homesters got the runs for the loss of four wickets.

The main run-getters for Llechryd were Tom Beard (48) and Ollie Roberts (40).
