It could not have been scripted for a more dramatic climax as the Pembroke County Cricket League Division Two title race goes right to the wire on Saturday when leaders Llechryd host second-placed Narberth at the RDM Oval.

In their most recent outings on Saturday both rivals banked 30 points when Llechryd beat visitors Pembroke Dock by eight wickets and Narberth did likewise at home against bottom of the pile Johnston.

Going into the winner takes all game Llechryd hold a 17-point advantage but a win for the visitors would change all that.

After relegation and three seasons in the second tier Narberth are back in Division One and to complete a successful campaign would love to be promoted as champions.

Led by all-rounder David Johns the high-flyers boast a solid batting line-up with 38-year-old opener Richard Adams the mainstay having amassed well over 500 runs, including two centuries.

Opening bowler Ben Quartermaine has been in great form throughout the season, ably supported by seamer Loui Davies and spinner Mathew Johns.

Narberth can claim psychological one-upmanship through beating the Teifisiders by seven wickets at the Lewis Lloyd Ground in June.

On that occasion Llechryd experienced difficulty piercing the field and despite a well-compiled 59 from Johnnie Lewis were dismissed for 103 as Quartermaine, Davies and Mike Reekie did the damage.

Adams, Hedd Luff and Kyle Quartermaine saw their side safely home.

It has to be said that Llechryd had four regulars, including all-rounder and skipper John Curran unavailable on that occasion and it could be an entirely different scenario this weekend.

Curran has been on top of his game in notching three centuries and has also taken wickets while vastly-experienced left-handed batsman Steve Smith is an important member of the side who was missing at Narberth.

A fascinating contest is in prospect in the Teifi Valley village where a draw could be sufficient for the homesters to be crowned champions while Johns and colleagues will go for glory by completing a double over their rivals.
