CRICKET - North Wales League round up


Geraint Jones

Denbigh 96 all out
Menai Bridge 95 for 7
Menai Bridge won by five wickets

A SUPERB attacking display kept Menai Bridge in control at the top of the North Wales Premier Division, despite Llandudno’s win against fellow title-chasers Connah’s Quay.

Ashley Wood (4 for 25) and Robbie Jones (3 for 18) were in excellent form, along with Scott and Carl Thomas, as Denbigh struggled to 19 for 4.

John Lee Rowland steadied the innings with 33, but Denbigh could not recover after he was caught and bowled by Scott Thomas, and stumbled to 96 all out.

Menai Bridge’s openers Nathan Shearer (6) and Wood (8) failed to make an impact, but Gerallt Roberts (28) and Nathen Goodright (21) helped the visitors to claim victory with five wickets to spare.

This puts Menai Bridge 10 points clear of Llandudno on 273 points.

Llandudno II 211 all out
Bethesda 110 all out
Llandudno won by 111 runs

PESDA were unable to overcome Llandudno in their Division One encounter at the Oval.

The visitors put Llandudno into bat and had a decent start, as Rhisiart Jones (5 for 33) and Aled Jones (3 for 57) restricted the home side to 28 for 4.

However, Phil Williams (51) steadied the ship, and an unbeaten 51 from Andrew Christian helped Llandudno to 211 all out.

Opener Jez Shea posted 21, but Pesda were dismissed for 110.

Bala 196 for 5
Anglesey Aluminium 76 all out
Bala won by 120 runs

A STERLING partnership between Rhodri Edwards (89) and Sion Hughes (55 not out) signalled defeat for Anglesey Aluminium Seconds in their Division Three fixture at Castle Park.

Philip Westall hit 42 in reply, but the in-form Bala attack ensured that AA were all out for 76 after 27 overs.

Bangor II 92 all out
Llay Welfare 94 for 1
Llay Welfare won by 9 wickets

AN IMPRESSIVE opening 44 from Babur Javed Khan could not spur on Bangor Seconds to victory in this Division One clash at Ty Newydd.

Faisal Kahn, Jamie Camilleri, Liam McCann and Subhan Kahn were all out for ducks, as Jamie Beale starred in attack for Llay with 6 for 12 - and the visiting batsmen were dispatched 92.

An unbeaten stand from Michael Paletia (both on 26), along with 29 from David Phennah, was enough for Llay to take the victory.

Anglesey Aluminium II 160 all out
Northop 169 for 2
Northop won by 8 wickets

NORTHOP bowlers Danny Nicholson (3 for 21) and Alastair Andrady (3 for 12) laid waste to the visiting batsmen, as the Islanders slumped to defeat.

33 from Danny Williams was the sole bright spot as AA were dismissed for 160 off 39 overs.

Menai Bridge II 168 all out
Llanrwst 169 for 7
Llanrwst won by 3 wickets

BOWLERS Andrew Wannop (4 for 51) and Steve Jones (3 for 42) could not prevent defeat  after Menai Bridge started promisingly with the bat, before a mid-innings slump saw hopes of victory fade.

Wannop also hit 28 with the bat, but could not arrest the slide as the Bridge finished all out for 168 after 48 overs.

Bethesda II 35 all out
Carmel and District 250 for 6
Carmel and District won by 215 runs

A SIGNIFICANTLY weakened, but plucky Pesda side could not match their in-form visitors in this Division Four tie.

The home side were blown away after putting Carmel into bat, with an unbeaten 62 from Gareth Roberts the highlight of the innings.

Pesda were blown away in just 13 overs by Dafydd Timothy (6 for 2) and Oliver Saynor (4 for 30).

Chirk 118 all out
Bodedern II 122 without loss
Bodedern II won by 10 wickets

BODEDERN Seconds cruised to victory at Presaddfed, despite a promising start at the crease for Chirk, when opener Ian Skinner hit a battling 49.

Dewi Hood and Ian Wyn Jones both took 3/27 for Bodedern as Chirk were dismissed for 118.

Martin Roberts, ably supported by Carwyn Thomas (42 not out) hit his maiden 50 in an unbeaten 66, as the home side eased to a 10 wicket win.
