WORK is progressing well on an impressive new facility at Bangor Cricket Club.

The North Wales Cricket League Premier Division champions are set to have a new clubhouse in place in time for the 2020 campaign.

Constriction teams have been busy throughout the winter on the project, which is now in its final stages and represents a significant upgrade on the old building.

This is the latest in a series of exciting developments at the club, who conquered all-comers to wrestle the title back from fierce rivals Menai Bridge last season.

There was further good news for the club thanks to talented teenager Owen Reilly, who has been named into the Wales U18 programmes at one-day and longer format level.

The all-rounder made a huge impression at Bangor following his arrival from Pwllheli, opening the batting and bowling despite his tender age.

He averaged 32.46 from 18 innings’ that included a season-best score of 64 not out against Denbigh. Reilly claimed 19 scalps at the expense of 22.58, which also saw the player claim his first-ever five-wicket haul (5-26) in their encounter against Gresford.

This fine form has also caught the attention of national selectors, with the Sixth Former part of the Wales U18 squad that participated in a series of T20 fixtures against English county opposition.

The senior captain at Rydal Penrhos School in Colwyn Bay also earned a call-up to a Wales select XI that will test their skills against Marylebone Cricket Club at Lord’s later this year.
