Conwy 2nd XI (0) 74-10 Pontblyddyn 2nd XI (15) 177-8

Leaders Pontblyddyn 2nds remain in command after a maximum points outcome at Bodlondeb.

The visitors made 177-8 off their 40 overs, Cayo Jones 40 not out, Dave Evans 38 and Gethin Thomas 37, Andrew Wannop taking 4-55 for the hosts.

Conwy 2nds were dismissed for just 74, Toby Watson a gallant 37, while Ryan White scooped 5-10, Daz Wilcock 2-17 and Ioan Jones 2-25 for the winners.

Abergele 2nd XI (0) 96-9 Brymbo 2nd XI (15) 97-1

Ioam Craven-Jones (3-15), William Roberts (3-18) and Wayne Smith (2-15) did the chief damage as Brymbo 2nds allowed Abergele 2nds to make just 96-9 off their 40 overs.

The Steelmen, who invited the hosts to bat, then raced to 97-1 in just 20, Joss Roberts 51 not out.

Bethesda 2nd XI (2) 62-10 Buckley 2nd XI (13) 63-4

Mike Wooton snapped up a stunning 6-16 off eight overs as Buckley 2nds sent Pesda packing for a paltry 62 at Parc Villa.

Bucks, who put the opposition in, then reached a winning 63-4 in 16.5, Jamie Savage with 2-17 for the hosts.

Connah’s Quay 2nd XI (2) 176-10 Gwersyllt Park 2nd XI (13) 235-7

Opener Matthew Jones (71) and Jack Watkins (46) were the highest scorers as Gwersyllt set a massive 235-7 at Central Park.

Despite a fine 68 from Sajad Mukhtarzai, Connah’s Quay were bowled out for 176 in response, earning themselves just two points.

Watkins (2-12) and Ryan McCarthy (2-20) impressed most with the ball for the visitors.

Denbigh 2nd XI (15) 298-3 Ruthin 2nd XI (0) 59-10

This Vale of Clwyd derby was painfully one-sided in Denbigh’s favour.

Ruthin 2nds probably regretted putting their hosts into bat as Denbigh 2nds piled up 298-3 off 40 overs, Jon Eccles leading the assault with 93, Darren Nixon ending on 75 not out and opener Simon Williams hitting 72.

The visitors were all back in the hutch for just 59, Ian Hall with 3-12, Josh Jones 3-18, John Lloyd-Williams 2-3 from seven overs and Jake Jones 2-18 for the maximum points victors.

Pwllheli 2nd XI (0) 64-10 Mynydd Isa and Maeshafn (15) 220-7

Matt Lloyd shone brightest for the visitors with 70, Abs Dey adding 45 in a total of 220-7, Ben Cowper a fine 5-31 for the hosts.

Pwllheli collapsed to 64 all out, Prasad Jadhav 4-9 from 7.2 and Venkat Sundaram (2-16) wrapping up a very good day for Mynydd Isa and Maeshafn.


Halkyn 2nd XI (13) 138-10 Carmel and District 2nd XI (2) 67-9

Evan Collett’s superb bowling return of 6-28 was not enough to save his Carmel outfit from defeat at Pant Newydd.

The visitors won the toss, put the hosts in, and will have been relatively pleased to have bowled them out for 138, Collett’s great figures coming off nine overs, while Steven Jones claimed 2-14.

James Beresford did best for Halkyn with a captain’s knock of 43.

Despite an unbeaten 32 from Steven Jones, the rest of the Carmel batting failed, the away side crumbling to a final effort of 67-9.

For Halkyn, Finlay Rooke-Hart took 2-3, Josh Edwards 2-18 and Jack Hawkins 2-21, securing a 13-2 points success.

Hawarden Park 3rd XI (0) 107-10 Corwen (15) 215-1

Tom King recorded a best score for Corwen of 112 as his team posted a formidable 215-1 off 40 overs at Shotton.

King, who joined the Edeyrnion club this season after many years at Llangollen and a brief previous spell at Mold, shared in a big opening stand with John Wildman (72 not out).

Hawarden 3rds were dismissed for 107, Gareth Rigden 4-14 and Harry Pooler 2-25 for the triumphant visitors.

Marchwiel and Wrexham 2nd XI (14) 97-3 Llanrwst 2nd XI (1) 94-10

Veteran Chris Hemmings collected 4-14 as visitors Llanrwst were rolled over for just 94.

Zahid Sharif landed 2-13 and Mike Lee 2-21, opener Ian Nicholls with a spirited 29 for the Rwsters, who were asked to bat first.

Marchwiel and Wrexham 2nds replied with a winning 97-3, Jason Wharam 52, Gaz Jones 2-16 for the Conwy Valley men.
