Young cricketers were getting into the swing of things earlier this month over two days of enjoyable school competition.

The Lady Taverners Kwik Cricket Festivals saw two successful days of Ladies/Girls cricket held at Tenby Leisure Centre on March 5 and 12.

Overall, 90 girls took part at Under 13 level and 75 at under 15. 
Schools represented were Caer Ellen, Greenhill, Haverfordwest High, Harri Tudor, Milford Haven and Ysgol Penrhyn Dewi.

Pembrokeshire County Council Cricket Development Officer Martin Jones said it was great to see the numbers taking part.

He added: “There were some great skills on show. 

“Hopefully a lot of these young players will go on to play in the Pembrokeshire Ladies league, which this year has 10 teams taking part.”

At Under 13 the winners were the two Milford Haven teams with Caer Ellen as runners-up.

All three sides were then set to go onto represent Pembrokeshire at The South west Wales finals in Llandarcy this Thursday, March 26.

But of course since then, all cricket activity has been suspended due to the Coronavirus and the teams can now only hope they get a chance at a later date.

At Under 15 Greenhill 1 triumphed with Haverfordwest High as runners up.

Both Harri Tudor and Milford Haven were also supposed to join Greenhill and Haverfordwest High in representing Pembrokeshire.

Martin Jones added: “It was great to see some of the School Ambassadors from YPD and Haverfordwest High umpiring at both festivals. 

“A big thank you to Jess Raymond, Carys Ribbon, Azamor Todd, Kaitlin Morgan and Jasmine Guymer.

“I’d like to congratulate all the schools who qualified to represent Pembrokeshire at Llandarcy and I have no doubt they would have enjoyed the experience.”
