A DISAPPOINTING Bank Holiday Weekend for Colwyn Bay saw them suffer league and cup losses in consecutive days.

Sion Morris’ side fell victim to an eight-wicket loss at Bootle in Liverpool and District Competition Premier Division action, before exiting the Rag Digman Cup at the third-round stage thanks to a six-wicket home reverse at the hands of New Brighton.

The Penrhyn Avenue side will be hoping for better luck this weekend when they entertain Rainhill on Saturday.

Saturday’s league contest saw the Bay all out for 144 from 48 overs in the middle, with Ryan Westwell top scoring from the opening batsman position with a knock of 34 from 42 deliveries.

Zack Gidlow made a promising 29 before he was removed by Kieron New, and the former Prestatyn standout was in top form throughout to finish with figures of 6-37 from a mammoth 19 overs.

Other scores of note came from Saliya Jeewantha (25) and George Johansen (14), but the home side made light work of their required target thanks to a sensational unbeaten century from Michael Farrell.

The opener was in ruthless mood to fire 12 boundaries on his way to 112 not out, with Will Hale (38) and Sam Kershaw (23) also boosting the hosts’ total.

Bay set an almost identical target in Sunday’s cup tie, with Gidlow (19), Jeewantha (26) and Luke Russell (17) enabling the home side to reach 145 all out from 41 overs.

They managed to make a fight of it but were eventually undone by another standout knock which came courtesy of wicketkeeper-opener Dan Cooke, who secured 72 from 83 balls before he was eventually sent back to the pavilion at the hands of Oran Davis.

Ashley Watkins and Andrew Clarke also played a huge part for the away side, making 26 and 16 not out respectively.
