Last Sunday (August 22) the inaugural Aled Davies Memorial was held at Carew Cricket Club.
The day involved two semi-finals and a final, with teams competing under the new ‘Hundred’ format for the Aled Davies Memorial Trophy, made by Gerald Hicks.
Carew defeated Cresselly in their semi-final on the main pitch in Carew, whilst Lawrenny beat a combined Hook/Llangwm XI on the third team pitch that overlooks Carew Castle and Tidal Mill.
There were some excellent performances by players on every team, with a special mention to Kyle Marsh of Lawrenny, who scored 95 from 36 balls, including a staggering nine sixes!
The final saw Carew beat Lawrenny on the main pitch, again with good performances from a number of players on each team.
The Man of the Match award went to Lawrenny’s Harry Thomas, who scored 50 runs and took three wickets in an excellent all-round display.
The whole day was a huge success and Aled’s family were completely overwhelmed by the support they received.
Money raised during the day will go to The Aled Davies Memorial Fund, which will aim to provide some support to local sports clubs and/or young players who require it.
