NORTH WALES CRICKET LEAGUE DIVISION ONE – MAY 14

Llanrwst (0) 61-10 Denbigh (15) 206-10

Harrison Jones has made major waves with his batting skills this season but on Saturday he proved he belongs in the great all-rounder class with a stunning bowling spell of 5-6.
Skipper Jones also top-scored with 35 in Denbigh’s thrashing of Llanrwst which keeps them in command of the Division One summit.
The visitors decided to bat and were all out for 206 in 44 overs, the biggest contributor actually being extras on 42, while Jones was the highest-scoring human.
For the hosts, Nic Bould took 3-19, Alwyn Williams 2-28 and Aron Hughes 2-32.
In reply, Llanrwst crashed to 61 all out despite a decent start from openers Iwan Edwards (23) and Aled Hughes (14).
Spinner Harrison Jones removed both and went on to claim that 5-6 from six overs, Alec Lewis 3-20 and Joe Lewis 2-6.

Bangor 2nd XI (12) 151-7 Gwersyllt Park (3) 150-9

A sixth-wicket stand of 82 between Andrew Savage (39) and Jamie Davies (35) dd most to guide Bangor 2nds to success at Ty Newydd.
Skipper Iroshan De Silva led the way with the game’s only half-century, scoring 52 in Gwersyllt’s effort of 150-9 off 45 overs, Subhan Khan claiming 4-44 and Ryan Symonds-Mayes 2-28 for the hosts.
Bangor were in trouble on 43-5 before Savage and Davies turned the tide.
Both were dismissed, but the Citzens went on to reach 151-7 in 35.2 overs, Lewis Cole taking 3-27 and De Silva 2-17.

Buckley (1) 47-10 Connah’s Quay (14) 48-3

Buckley’s tough return to Division One continued as they collapsed cheaply at home to Connah’s Quay and lost by seven wickets.
The home side opted to bat but no-one made double figures except the extras column with 19 as Bucks were sent packing for just 47, Mali Auty taking 4-9, Lee Davies 3-8 and Joshua Clarke 2-11.
The Quay lost three early wickets in response, but Kevin Jones took charge with 26 not out as his team got to 48-3 off 9.3, Jack Williams 2-22 for the well-beaten hosts.

Conwy (4) 224-10 Marchwiel & Wrexham (11) 238-7

Skipper George Forgrave hit 71 as Marchwiel and Wrexham’s big total at Bodlondeb proved enough for victory.
Forgrave and Sam Shoemark (40) made the best scores as the visitors posted 238-7 off 45 overs.
Conwy were all back in the pavilion for 224, Llewelyn Cowell topping the chart on 36 not out, skipper Daniel Davies 35 and Gareth Thomas 32, Sion Edwards 3-34 and Shoemark 2-26 for the away side, who won by 14 runs.

Halkyn (13) 154-4 Abergele (2) 150-10

Fifth-wicket pair Jamie Griffiths (61 no) and Nathan Lavender (38 no) swept Halkyn to victory with an unbroken stand.
Gele were bowled out for 150 in 39.2 overs, Gareth Edwards 37 and captain Ben Garnett 30, Ben Roberts scooping 3-32 and Lavender 2-27 for the hosts.
In reply, Halkyn lost some early wickets before Griffiths and Lavender turned the match, Owen Lynam with 2-22 for the losing side.

Hawarden Park (15) 230-3 Dolgellau (0) 126-10

A mighty batting effort from Hawarden Park carried them to a 15-0 points triumph at Moor Lane.
The Park amassed 230-3 from 45 overs, Craig Wilson retiring on 66 not out, Chris Geary 64 no, skipper Jamie Brailsford 40 and Rhys Johnson 36 no.
Jaco Oosthuizen performed best with 49 as Dolgellau were all removed for 126 in response, James Martin 3-16, Tom Wilson 3-28 and Campbell Marr 2-26 doing most to ensure a 104-run win for the in-form hosts.
