Published

on

LLANGENNECH finished the season off with a win on Saturday (Aug 28) as they prevented Gowerton from reaching their target.

Llangennech won the toss and chose to bat first and they made a good total of 276-7 from their 50 overs with runs throughout the order.

James Taube and Nathan Richards made an excellent start as they shared 91 runs for the first wicket.

Gowerton finally made the breakthrough when Richards was trapped leg before by Matthew Mason on a score of 39.

Taube made his way to a score of 43 but he was then stumped by David Gascoyne off the bowling of Tom Clarke.

That left the score on 94-2 but Aaron Wood and Nathan Jones added 55 runs for the third wicket.

Wood made his way to a score of 20 but he was then caught by Callum Eakins off the bowling of Matthew Mason.

Jones and David Williams then shared 83 runs for the fourth wicket as they took Llangennech over 200 runs.

Jones hit four fours and a six in his score of 61 but he was then run out by Lee Nicholas.

Williams had smashed seven fours and three sixes in a score of 57 from 29 balls but he was then caught by Nicholas off the bowling of James Cable.

Richard Clement made a late score of 13 before he was run out by Daniel Allen and Hedd-Wyn Jones scored 14 before being bowled by Cable.

Those wickets halted Llangennech’s momentum but they were still able to finish their innings on 276-7, with 25 from Mr Extras.

Gowerton were soon in trouble in their reply as they slipped to 8-2. Michael Jones had Lee Nicholas caught by Jack Page and Bevan Daniels caught by Hedd-Wyn Jones.

That soon became 18-3 as Michael Jones bowled Luke Evans.

David Gascoyne and Matthew Mason looked to lead the recovery as they shared 37 runs for the fourth wicket.

Gascoyne made his way to a score of 27 but he was also caught by Hedd-Wyn Jones off the bowling of Michael Jones to leave Gowerton on 55-4.

Daniel Allen hit a four and a six in his quick fire score of 11 but he fell the same way as Gascoyne as Gowerton fell into further trouble on 88-5.

However, Mason and Callum Eakins shared 90 runs for the sixth wicket to keep their side in the game.

Mason hit nine fours and three sixes on his way to a score of 95 but he was unlucky to miss out on a century when he was caught and bowled by James Taube.

Tom Barrett added 10 before falling to the bowling of Jack Page before Eakins and Will Collinson added 40 runs for the eighth wicket.

Eakins hit six fours in his score of 45 but he was then trapped leg before by Page as Gowerton’s hopes of victory began to fade.

Page then had Collinson caught by Nathan Richards on a score of 20.

That left Gowerton nine down and still needing 38 runs for victory.

They were unable to get those runs though as Owain Phillips had James Cable caught by Page to bowl Gowerton out for 243.

It gave Llangennech victory by 33 runs and their fifth win of the season.

Behind the Scenes with West Wales Raiders & Llanelli Town AFC CEO Peter Tiffin

Published

on

EACH week we will take a look at what’s going on at both clubs with an insight from the CEO.

As most in sport know January is a busy time for clubs with the transfer window back open, last week saw both the Raiders and Reds welcome in new players and will be straight in to action for both sides before the end of the month.

It’s been a very difficult period with the spectator’s restrictions and the pausing in season for the Reds especially with the new managers coming in and beginning their time with the club with a win at Stebonheath Park.

Thankfully the restrictions are easing and next weekend both the Raiders and the Reds will be able to welcome back fans to our home of Stebonheath Park with home fixtures on Friday evening (Llanelli Town v Undy) & Sunday afternoon (West Wales Raiders v Swinton Lions).

This week has also seen a few new partnerships and one in particular was a launch to support a community project for lonely people to attend various events, both the Raiders & the Reds have offered tickets to all home games and our home bar will be working with the project on a fortnightly luncheon club.

To continue with new partnerships the Raiders decided this week that we would swap our sponsors logos with charities for a one off jersey which the players will play in against Swinton next week, I will be looking to work a lot closer with all 7 charities throughout the year and including both clubs in any events.

To finish off this week I wanted to add that Ethan George an up and coming local professional boxer who has plenty of talent will now be working a lot closer with myself, as a few of you may be aware that another professional boxer Angelo Dragone has worked very closely with both clubs and myself and we both will be working with Ethan to help him on his development within boxing.
