South Wales Association Division One: Skewen 106 a/o lost to Dafen 110-5

AFTER the disappointment of losing to their nearest rivals Llanelli last week, and in the process being usurped in second place in the South Wales Association Division One table by their neighbours, Dafen produced the perfect response with a 25 point victory away at a Skewen side which sit perilously close to the relegation zone.

However it could have been a much simpler task had they not lost their top three for 12 runs between them, leaving themselves at 42-3, before recovering to win with 12 overs to spare. Winning the toss and opting to field, Dafen made light work of the Skewen batting line up with the only real resistance provided by captain Dean Kriescher who hit 23 from 56 balls in the middle order as wickets fell at regular intervals. For Dafen Matthew Evans was on form with the ball, taking 4 wickets from his allotted 15 overs, giving away just 44 runs in the process. The finest spell came from Matthew Donoghue who helped himself to 3-20 from 14 overs, including 5 maidens.

Kelvin Bartle took 1-26 and Spinner Phil George continued his wicket taking form with 2-8 from 5 overs. With the job done from by the bowlers, the batsmen set about winning the game, and boy did they make hard work of it. Reduced to 42-3 with over 20 overs bowled, the visitors put themselves under immense pressure to get the result. Luckily, experienced all rounder Kelvin Bartle re-discovered some form with the bat to hit 25 from 30 balls, he was joined by Jamie Mansel who’s 24 laid the platform for Ieuan Rosser to steer the Llanelli side home with 37 not out including 6 boundaries. Dafen remain in third thanks to Llanelli’s big win at Llandysul, but they will be hoping to regain second place when they host Maesteg Celtic on Saturday.

Malcolm Roy Edwards of Queens Road, Aberystwyth, pleaded guilty to being drunk in public in Llanrystud when he was prohibited from doing so after being made subject to a criminal behaviour order by Aberystwyth magistrates on October 12, 2017.

He also admitted breaching that order by committing this offence on September 11 this year.

Magistrates sent Edwards to prison for 18 weeks, as they felt the offence was serious having been aggravated by the offence being committed whilst on a community order.

AM and MP help ease complicated bus pass application process

Published

on

Elin Jones AM and Ben Lake MP have offered to help constituents who need to renew their Bus Passes, after raising concerns about the change in the renewal process.

As the current Concessionary Travel Passes run out at the end of the year, Transport For Wales have asked pass holders to reapply online, however Elin Jones and Ben Lake have raised concerns that the process is over complicated and that applying online rather than via a paper form will exclude many.

Initially, if applicants wanted a paper form, TfW said that applicants had to call a helpline and were warned the process would take a long time. So, as thousands went onto the website, it crashed under the weight of demand.

However, with the website expected to be back up and running soon, Elin Jones and Ben Lake have offered to help constituents reapply.

Elin Jones said:

“Bus pass users have been told that their current passes will be accepted for travel until 31 December 2019, however after that they will need to have the new pass.

“The application process has been muddled by urging people to reapply online. We know that many over 60s and disabled people may not have internet access or may be unfamiliar with its use.

“To simplify the process, I am offering the support of my office to try and help constituents with the process of reapplying for their bus pass, and Ben Lake MP is doing the same.

“If constituents would like to collect a paper form, or if they require assistance applying on paper or online, then they are welcome to contact us and we would be glad to assist, either by arranging a visit to either of our offices, or by sending forms to you.”

Ben Lake added:

“We know how vital access to buses are to many older and vulnerable people in Ceredigion, and I hope that we will be able to help as many people as possible to keep this access.”
