Premier Division
St Asaph (13) 67-5 Llandudno (2) 66-10

In the only Premier game to survive the weather, St Asaph triumphed by five wickets in an encounter which took just 45.4 total overs to complete.

The only chance of any match finishing on a rainy day like Saturday was for it to be short-lived – and so it proved at Elwy Grove Park.

Put into bat, Tudno were sent packing for just 66 in 23 overs.

Only skipper Ajay Dhawan (27) and Jamie Grimshaw (20) managed double figures.

Mathew Ryan claimed 4-14 off six overs, Liam Moores picked up 3-22 and Danny Ryan 2-12.

In reply, Saints slipped to 19-3 before Ben Mason (10) and Daniel Williams (29 not out) added an important 21 for the fourth wicket.

And it was Williams who held everything together as the hosts got to 67-5 from 22.4 overs to seal a 13-2 success.

Tom Thornton notched 2-10 and Dan Evans 2-11 for the visitors.

Division One
Abergele (13) 159-6 Clwb Criced Llanrwst (2) 119-10

Ben Garnett had a great match with bat and ball as Abergele defeated Llanrwst by 40 runs at Pentre Mawr Park.

Inserted by the opposition, Garnett (33) and David Williams (41) formed a 54 stand for Gele’s first wicket.

Gareth Edwards added 30 as the hosts posted 159-6 off a reduced 32 overs due to rain.

Huw Williams snapped up 2-26 and Leon Doran 2-34 for the Rwsters.

Garnett then grabbed a vital 4-24 off seven overs as the Conwy Valley visitors were bowled out for 119.

Wasim Ali scooped 2-20 and skipper Karl Higgins 2-27 for the home team, who recorded a 13-2 points win.

Opener Aled Hughes did best with the bat for Llanrwst, scoring 36, Trefor Williams contributing 21.

All other matches across the divisions were postponed following the heavy Saturday morning rain throughout North Wales.
