North Wales Cricket League Divisions 1-4: Conwy still rule the roost

Division One


Conwy continue to rule the roost in Division One after a comfortable six-wicket win at home to second-place Llay Welfare.

The leaders won the toss and put their opponents in, bowling them out for just 129, Graham Meredith and Vaughan Williams each taking 3-29.

Shaun Davies top-scored with 40 as Conwy reached 120-4 in 40.4 overs to seal a 13-2 points success.

Bowlers dominated as Ruthin edged a one-wicket triumph at Abergele.

Inserted by the visitors, Gele were sent packing for a paltry 82, Harry Pooler picking up 4-27, Llyr Williams 3-13 and Sion Hughes 2-25 off 10 overs.

Ruthin were 19-4 and 69-8 in response, but last-wicket pair Duncan Roberts and Ollie Gray got them over the line at 83-9, Hughes a key factor having earlier hit 38 batting at three.

Owen Lynam scooped a very impressive 5-23 off 12 overs for the hosts and David Moulson grabbed 4-5, but Ruthin nicked the points 11-4.

Gwersyllt had no problem beating Bethesda, the visitors bowled out for 108 having been 76-2 at one point, Ethan McCarthy notching 5-17 and Michael Griffiths 3-19 for the hosts, who hit back with 109-1 off 29.2, Jake James a commanding 70 no. Points: 14-1.

Leon Doran took 4-40 as Llanrwst bowled out Carmel and District for 114, Dafydd Bailey 35, but the Rwsters were then rolled over for just 86, Oliver Saynor and Barry McGauty both snapping up 5-22. Points: 3-12.

A vital 53 from David Hughes led Hawarden Park to a four-wicket decision at high-flying Mold.

Duane Williams (30) and Wes Gillam (23 no) were the only double-figure merchants as Mold were dismissed for a weak-looking 83, Michael Wootton, Campbell Marr, Ian Martin and Alex Cross all with two wickets each, then Hughes dominated with 53 as Park made it to 84-6, points 3-12.

Bersham v Dolgellau – cancelled, 3 points each.

Division Two

Bangor seconds went top of Division Two after an emphatic derby victory at Menai Bridge seconds.

In the only match played in the division, the others all off due to rain, Bangor won the toss and batted, Andrew Savage hitting 102 as the Citizens amassed 228-7 off 45 overs, Peter Jones finishing 53 no.

Dion Owen took a fine 2-25 from 10 accurate overs for the hosts, Sam Bixby 2-3 off six balls.

Sean Reilly collected 4-20, Jonny Wells 3-18 and Andy Williams 2-10 from nine overs as the Bridge were all back in the hutch for 117, Bixby completing a good match with 40 runs. Points: 0-15.
