FELINFOEL earned victory in their first game of the season on Saturday (May 4) as they beat Landore by 47 runs.
Felinfoel won the toss and elected to bat and they made a good start as openers Andrew Thomas and Craig Richards shared 74 runs for the first wicket.
Thomas was the first to fall when he was trapped leg before by Paul Siberry on a score of 40. Richards fell soon after on the same score when he was bowled by Jay Copp.
Tom Jones scored 18 before he was caught by Ceri Evans off the bowling of Copp and Jonathan Cheal was then caught by Marc Evans off the bowling of Ahsan Mughal.
That left Felinfoel on 128-4 but a score of 46 from Rhys Jones took them towards 200 runs.
Jones was bowled by Mughal and Rhys Harries, who made 21, was then caught and bowled by Andrew Mumford.
Rohan Nangalia finished not out on 11 as Felinfoel reached 195-7 from their 50 overs.
Landore then made a good start to their reply as Kael Ace and Kevin Davies shared 68 runs for the first wicket.
Ace raced his way to a half century from 40 balls with five fours and four sixes but he was then caught by Chris Bowen off the bowling of Tom Jones.
Davies then fell for a score of 16 when he was caught by Stuart Parmenter off the bowling of Rhys Harries.
Harries then had the wickets of Jay Copp (14), Ahsan Mughal (9), while Parmenter took the wicket of Ceri Evans (2) to leave Landore reeling on 99-5.
It was soon 101-6 as Harries had Marc Evans caught by Craig Richards for a duck.
Andrew Mumford fell cheaply to the bowling of Rohan Nangalia before Mark Ace and Rob Draper offered some late resistance.
Ace scored 11 but was then caught by Richards off the bowling of Jonathan Cheal while Draper made 21 before being bowled by Nangalia.
The same bowler then trapped Paul Siberry leg before to bring Landore’s innings to a close on 148-all out.
On Saturday (May 11), Felinfoel will look for another win as they travel to Baglan
Three in a row for Kidwelly
KIDWELLY Town earned their third straight win in Carmarthenhire League Division 1 on Saturday (Oct 16) as they came from behind to beat Tumble 4-1.
Tumble had lost their last three matches prior to Saturday’s game and it was they who took the lead when Garin Morris scored in the tenth minute.
Chris Cray equalised for Kidwelly and it remained 1-1 until half time.
Both sides knew the next goal would be crucial but it was the home side who got it as Rob Davis set up Alex Kay to score.
And just a minute later it was 3-1 as Connor Howells scored.
That all but won the game for the home side who made sure of the points in injury time as Kay fired in his second goal of the game from the penalty spot.
Their fourth win of the season sees them stay in eighth place but they are now only three points behind third placed FC Carmarthen.
On Saturday, October 23, Kidwelly travel to Llangennech who sit just a point and two places above them in the table.
