Buckley celebrate promotion to North Wales League Division One

Buckley’s happy crew line up after securing promotion to Division One

Buckley Cricket Club have secured promotion to Division One of the Icon Sports North Wales League.

And another 13 points from their final two matches will also seal them the Division Two title.

Bucks made sure of a higher level of cricket next season after romping to a 15-0 success over local rivals Mold 2nd XI at Lane End on Bank Holiday Monday.

Louis Parry’s side, with their young talent and thrilling brand of cricket, have been a credit to the league this season.

Mold seconds won the toss and decided to bat, but were unable to post a competitive total, collapsing to 93 all out in 35 overs, Craig Roberts 24.

Jack Williams returned best bowling figures of 4-18, while Rhys Jones picked up 2-2.

In reply, Bucks eased to 94-1 in 19.4 overs, Seren Smale hitting 48 not out and William Norman 28.

Buckley are still undefeated in the league, having won 13 of their 18 matches with four cancellations and a tie.

Bucks’ remaining matches are home to Mochdre 2nd XI on September 4 and Carmel & District will visit Lane End on September 11. They were last in Division One in 2016.
