Welcome by The
Well, what a year it was and sadly the
pandemic caused havoc with our season, which at one point no one
thought we would have any cricket played.
Under the guidance of the WG and
Cricket Wales, huge thanks go to Leshia Hawkins CEO and Keri Chahal our
area manager, for all their input to get cricket played in
Pembrokeshire last year.
Sadly, we lost members of our cricket
family and who had connection with us here in Pembrokeshire, please
take a minute to remember them when you read this. thank you
I must now turn to my fellow
committee members without who we would have never had been able to have
the cricket we did last season, zoom meetings on a weekly basis and I
am indebted to them all for their continued hard work.
Last season we welcomed two new
sponsors, Blas Y Tir ( Puffin Produce Ltd ) for the Harrison Allen and
LBS Ltd for the Alec Colley and huge thanks to all our other sponsors,
Thomas Carrol, Morris Family, Hugh Harrison-Allen, Llewelyn Davies,
Tony Pidgeon and Lords International for their continued support and
look forward to working with them again this season.
Firstly, to Indoor Cricket, again
thanks to Peter Davies for organising and Pembrokeshire Groundsman
Association for sponsoring and congratutions to Neyland CC who won and
then went on to win the Welsh title and get through the regional finals
to reach Lords, only to have it cancelled because of the pandemic,
still to be played.
No league cricket was played but the
Harrison-Allen, Alec Colley, Ormond Youth including the Plate were
played, congratulations to Neyland, Carew, Cresselly and Whitland and
thanks to all the clubs that hosted the finals.
I must thank once again Gordon,
Fraser, Bill, James and Rod for all the press coverage.
Once again, I ask for your support, we
need more new Umpires and the courses will be on line this year FOC,
please see the website and social media for information.
I will close now and all our hopes are
for a full season, please stay safe and hope to see in the coming
Richard Merriman, Chairman
