St Fagans crowned Champions at Miskin Manor

St Fagans 1st XI were crowned Premier League Division Two Champions on Saturday after a huge 22 point win over Miskin Manor.

1st XI skipper, Chris Thorne, lost the toss but St Fagans were surprisingly put into bat by the opposition on a sweltering day and on what looked like an excellent wicket. The match was also played in intriguing circumstances with 2nd place Tata Steel (3pts behind the Stags) also in action against Miskin’s relegation rivals Ynystawe (9pts behind Miskin).

The first impressions of the wicket fortunately played true for the the Stags with the 1st XI amassing a huge 278-5 with important contributions once again from Matt Thompson (86), Gareth Rees (78) and Andrew Leering (65*). The three batsmen have been hugely impressive throughout the season for the Stags with Rees finishing 2nd highest run scorer in the SWPL2 with 737 runs at 56 – and Leering just behind with 569 at 56 too.

In reply, Miskin got off to a brisk start, however, the introduction of seamer, Gareth Weatherall, quickly changed the course of the game. Weatherall’s inswing quickly removed both Miskin openers putting the Stags in pole position. The impetus never returned for Miskin and they were bowled out for 140 off 42 overs with 17-year-old Charles Griffith picking up a match-winning haul of 5 wickets.

Stags collected a maximum of 22 points to secure the title – the 2nd in four seasons for the 1st XI and with Saturday’s side containing 8 players who have come through the club’s junior ranks.

In the match at Port Talbot, Ynystawe emerged victors and St Fagans’ comprehensive victory prevented Miskin from collecting sufficient points to stay up. Our congratulations to Ynys for staying up, to Tata for an excellent season and running us so close and sincere commiserations to Miskin Manor who will undoubtedly bounce back.

All eyes will now turn to the Premier League proper in 2018 as the Stags looked to retain PL status for the first-time since the establishment of the top league in 2010.

Stags get-together next Saturday (12th)

Come and support the boys next Saturday…

Next Saturday, the first team will be playing the final home game of the season against Newport Fugitives.

The season is shaping up nicely and an exciting finish is in store with the 1st XI four points ahead of nearest rivals, Tata Steel, following a comprehensive win in Port Talbot yesterday.

The 3rds are also clinging on to the hopes of promotion – Charlie’s Angels will be at home next Saturday against Newbridge.

We’d like the day to be a real club-family affair so please bring partners, kids, parents and the like!

There will also be a free glass of prosecco for all the girls and the BBQ will be firing!

The nets will be open all day for the kids too.

Please pass on the message to friends and family and we look forward to seeing you at the club next Saturday!

Stags 6-a-side postponed

Sadly, we’ve had to take the decision to postpone the 6-a-side on Sunday. The forecast over the next couple of days is dreadful to say the least and this will make 2 of the 3 pitches in the tournament near on unplayable.

 

We will be rearranging the tournament before the end of the season. Keep an eye out on our website and twitter handles for more information!

St Fagans U13 have progressed to the next round following a superb victory against Brockhampton in the ECB regional final – a great team performance with some excellent fielding. 

Notable mentions to Callum Nicholls who hit an excellent 31 (retired), Harry Burrows with a game-changing spell of 3-14 and Ollie Sherwood who made 26* with the bat and took the match winning wicket! All 11 boys played their part – well done!

Their next game is likely to be a week today away at Dumbleton in Gloucs! More info to be shared in due course.

Go Stags!

Glamorgan 2nd XI take on Essex at St Fagans CC

Glamorgan 2nd XI take on Essex at St Fagans CC

On Monday, St Fagans CC had the pleasure of hosting Glamorgan 2nds versus Essex, with a Glammy side containing two Stags products – Jeremy Lawlor and Ruaidhri Smith.

Glamorgan won the toss in the opening match and elected to field. Despite reducing the home team to 29/2, some fine hitting from Wheater and Velani took the score up to 104 before Smith broke the partnership, removing Velani for 44 from 33 balls.

Wheater continued to attack the Glamorgan bowling, supported well by Beard before falling for a tremendous 88 which included 5 6s.

At the end of their twenty overs Essex posted an imposing 179 with Smith the pick of the bowlers with 3/34.

The Welsh County were never really in the chase, losing constant wickets along the way. Neil Brand briefly threatened with 29 from 20 balls, and some lower order hitting from Ruaidhri Smith took the side beyond 100 but Glamorgan fell 52 runs short.

In the second game of the day, Glamorgan again won the toss but this time decided to bat first. Openers Craig Meschede and St Fagans’ Glamorgan allocated player, David Lloyd, got their side off to a flyer scoring 45 runs from just 3.1 overs before Lloyd fell for 26 from 11 balls.

Glamorgan’s batsman continued going for their shots and while they lost regular wickets, Neil Brand (30) and Kiran Carlson (44) took Glamorgan to 167/8 from their 20 overs

Essex’s innings started badly and never recovered. Opening batsman Welch fell to Meschede from the first ball of the innings and when the Glamorgan bowler removed the dangerman, Wheater, in his second over, the innings was in tatters.

Meschede eventually finished with figures of 4/29 and was ably supported by the rest of Glamorgan’s bowlers, who all took one wicket, as they won the match by 41 runs and the sides finished with one win apiece.

Wonderful occasion at SFCC for the Tom Maynard Trust

Last Friday was yet another great day at St Fagans remembering and celebrating Tom.

Well done and thanks to everyone who played their part in supporting the Tom Maynard Trust. Another great attendance and when the pennies are added up, another great total for a fantastic cause.

The list is endless but from the Stags special mention to Jane and Rob John (as ever), Tim H, Val and the spectacular list of volunteers who assisted on the day. From TMT, thanks to Mike Fatkin and loyal sponsor Richie Green.

The day produced a wonderfully warm atmosphere and great support for Matt, Sue and Ceri. It was also a pleasure to see Tom’s mucker Ed Jackson in attendance – a true warrior following his recent accident. Everyone at St Fagans CC wishes him the very best for his recovery.

The ground looked superb and all credit to the Caretaker, Gwyn and Tim. And top effort from the players too – well done to St Fagans who run out winners on the day.

A photo collection from the day can be found below.
