DAN and Kai Pullen ensured that it was a day to remember for their family as they helped Knighton-on-Teme to a seven-wicket win against Presteigne in Marches League Division Two.

Dan helped himself to three wickets, while his 15-year-old brother Kai made a catch - much to the delight of their father Dave.

"It was Dan's first game in six weeks and he finished on 3-26," said Dave.

"Kai's only played on a Sunday before because he is mainly a footballer.

"But, he took a good catch and told me afterwards that he missed cricket."

Dan Pullen was the pick of Knighton on Teme's bowlers, with Sam Sivieter and Mark Evans also bagging two wickets apiece to leave Presteigne on 110-7 off their 45 overs.

In reply, Richard Smith (39) and Jack Kitchen (27) ensured that Knighton were never in danger of reaching the required total.

However, the team will be without the services of Dan Pullen for the next three weeks because he is getting married to his partner Rose.

"He is getting married next Friday in Ledbury, but will miss this Saturday's game because he's got a rehearsal," said Dave.

"He is then going on a Mediterrean cruise for his honeymoon.

"However, he is hoping to play in the away game against his home town club Ledbury on August 23."
