CAERNARFON secured the North Wales Cricket League Division Four championship after a dominant nine-wicket win at Halkyn 2nds.

It has been a memorable season for the Cofis’ and they finished four points clear of Conwy 2nds after a dramatic final day, but their promotion has been quashed due to their ground boasting only an artificial surface to play competitive matches.

A barnstorming spell from Ian Morgan went a long way to restricting the home side to just 40 from 13 overs at the crease, with the all-rounder claiming no fewer than six wickets for the loss of 18 runs.

This came from a nine-over spell and also included two maidens, with Llyr Erddyn Davies adding two more to his tally for the season and Barry Roberts claiming the other scalp against the ten man hosts.

Despite losing opener and skipper Jason Parry when he was caught off an Anthony Green delivery for a duck during the opening exchanges with the new ball, an unbeaten knock of 24 from Huw Erddyn Davies ensured the visitors reached their required target with ease and after 17 overs in the middle.

This was the Cofis’ 11th league victory in 20 contests to round off an exceptional season from a good blend of experience and youth who held their nerve in the closing stages to get their hands on the crown.
