LLANRWST bowlers Jack Hughes, Jo Maguire and Alwyn Williams teamed up to take nine wickets between them in their club’s 28-run success at Hawarden Park in North Wales Cricket League division one.
Replying to Llanrwst’s 182-8, the hosts could only muster
154 as the deadly threesome took wickets at regular intervals to cement second
place in the league table.
Opener Scott Thomas hit five fours and three maximums in his
innings of 62 and wicketkeeper Tim Cummins added 43 as Llanrwst took their
total above the 180 mark.
Ian Martin kept them in check with 4-34 and although Jason
Biddulph (45) and Adam Doyle (30) played well for Hawarden Park, the hosts fell
short at 154.
Three wickets for Ashley Wood, including those of both
openers, set Menai Bridge 2nds on the way to a three-wicket triumph against
One of Wood’s victims, Rajjenu Britto, top scored for Conwy
but fell just short of his half-century on 49 with no-one else really doing
much with the bat as the visitors reached 150-9.
Ioan Williams claimed the wickets of the top four Menai
Bridge batsmen and Phil Wilson took 3-38 as the hosts eased home on 154-7.
Nathen Goodright and Cefn Owen, with 40 and 35 respectively, saw Menai Bridge
towards the finishing post.
In the division’s only other match to beat the weather,
Chirk earned a winning draw against Pwllheli.
Chirk batted first and scored 190-8 declared with captain
Shaun Walker leading by example with a knock of 79 and opener Gareth Partridge
getting a measured 60.
By the end of play, Pwllheli had reached 156-8, Nadeem Rehman
top scoring with 61 and Nick Flack taking 3-38.
