Jack Thornton’s heroics save Llandudno seconds from shock first defeat in Division Four


Llanrwst 2nd XI (4) 67-10 Llandudno 2nd XI (11) 71-10

Jack Thornton had a great day with bat and ball but his team Llandudno 2nds very nearly came a surprise cropper at Gwydir Park.

Having won most of their games in a canter so far, Tudno scraped a four-run success over Llanrwst 2nds to only just retain their perfect record.

Now with seven straight wins on their slate, The Oval side enjoy a 40-point lead at the summit, but Thornton got them out of jail in the Conwy Valley.

Put into bat, the table-toppers were bowled out for just 71, Jack Thornton making a major difference with his 24 runs.

Scott Thomas took 4-19 from nine and Berwyn Hughes 3-20 for the hosts.

In response, despite a battling 26 from Callum McMillan, Llanrwst were all out for 67.

Jack Thornton really came into his own with the ball, snaring 6-30, while Andrew Christian collected 2-24 in a really close contest.

Carmel and District 2nd XI (2) 55-10 Hawarden Park 3rd XI (13) 112-10

Opener Kenneth Evans (26) produced the Park’s biggest contribution, while for Carmel, Umar Jatala took 4-10 and Vipin James 3-13.

Luca Brooks then pocketed 3-12, Harry Black 2-5 and Luke Tyndall 2-11 as the hosts were skittled out for 55.

Points: 13-2 to Hawarden Park 3rds.

Corwen (14) 31-2 Bersham 2nd XI (1) 30-9
