With one round of Premier League 1st XI matches remaining next Saturday (4th), the situation at the foot of Division 1 could not be tighter…sadly!!

Fellow relegation candidate Ammanford ensured their place at top table next season after taking the spoils by 7 wickets at Marespool this afternoon. 

Our 1st XI were put into bat and somewhat stuttered their way to 174-9 from their 50 overs. After a poor start (9-2), Craig Meschede (magnificently caught after a fluent knock of 34, including 3 fours & a six), acting Captain Aneurin Norman (39, 1 four & 2 maximums) and Adam Frangakis-Williams (26no, 1 four) were the main contributors.

After the break, Dan Roberts (71no, 6 fours), skipper Alun Evans (34, 4 fours), Matthew Fisher (19, 3 fours) and Rhys-Huw Davies (26, 2 fours) saw their side home, and safe from relegation, in the 45th over..175-3.

This morning’s bottom placed club Pontarddulais also lost at home today (28th), so we have a winner-takes-all match at Marespool next Saturday!

So, 1st XI v Pontarddulais..start 12.30pm! With one club relegated each season, the losing side will go down! PLEASE..lend the lads your support if at all possible!


At Ammanford Park, our 2nd XI racked up 298-7 and strolled to a comfortable 66 run win to round off their season..our hosts were bowled out for 232 with more than 10 overs left to bat.

Batting first, MCC recovered well from being 45-4 after 11 overs. Joe Phillips (68, 7 fours), Ben Jones (41, 4 fours), Stuart Seaton (61, 9 fours), Rhys Davies (40no, 5 fours & a six) and Eddie Extras (50) were behind the good work.

In reply, Ammanford had a good go at chasing the challenging target. However, no batsman could go on to to score more than 31..apart from Eddie’s cousin, Ernie, who chipped in with a contribution of 58. Robbie Runout (1), Mike Jarrett (3-40), Rhys (1-39), Paul Kenealy (2-40) and Stuart (3-14) did the damage with the ball.

Jaimie Thomas’ Ship’s Company finished 5th in their 2nd XI Division..well done, lads!

Finally, at Maesteg Celtic, our ‘A’ XI were bowled out for 53 in their final game, and went on to lose by 10 wickets. Nevertheless, their final league position of 5th was nothing short of amazing, especially given the considerable issues this year re player availability for all three Senior sides. Well done John Courtney et al!
