Village Cup Home v Pentyrch Sunday 12 May 1pm start

Miskin host Pentyrch in the National Village Cup on Sunday 12 May commencing at 1pm.  The bar will be open so where better to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon than at Glyn Parc?  That’s a rhetorical question!  See you all Sunday.

Ynystawe in winter

Miskin travelled to old friends, Ynystawe CC for their first pre-season outing on Sunday in barmy conditions, Dan Hay won the toss and elected to bat.  Ash James, with icicles forming on his nose, stroud to the wicket with young Iestyn Herridge, Ash cashing in with an impressive 51, Iestyn still recovering from the shock of being told there was no tea.

Miskin finished on 184 with some good contributions from George and Dans Hay and  Lewis, sending the travelling support into a wild frenzy.

By the time Miskin took the field, the sun was poking through and with the real prospect of reaching a double digit centigrade reading, big James Wilkins opened down the hill with the wind, skipper Hay heading back up.

A good workout for the Miskin boys, including a superb debut leg side stumping by Ryan Williams off the skipper, ultimately ended in defeat as Ynystawe took control and eased to a comfortable win with plenty of time to spare.

Onwards and upwards, two games next weekend, and open to all.  Please can you let Matthew Ayers and Dan Hay know your availability.  Hopefully, the sun will shine and the icicles will have thawed by then!

Pre season friendlies

The new fixture sec Ash James has been busy in the off season and has lined up a stunning list of pre season friendlies starting with a trip to old friends, Ynystawe, and finishing with the visit of Porth.

Please let Dan Hay or Matthew Ayers have your availability and for supporters, what a great way to spend the Easter weekend
