A SENSATIONAL bowling display gave Llandudno a notable 64-run home success over in-form Denbigh.

The Lions’ turned in one of their most resolute displays of the North Wales Cricket League Premier Division season to date to get one over on their title rivals, and the result keeps them in sixth spot and 30 points behind Bangor ahead of their trip to Pontbyddyn on Saturday.

Despite the eventual result it was a poor start for the home side in the middle, with Matthew Jones falling for one early on and the talented duo of Danial Evans (6) and Luke Kenworthy (9) both dismissed at the hands of Jack Griffiths.

Lewis Jones (1), Kevin James (5) and skipper Jack Rimmington (0) were all out cheaply soon after, but Jamie Grimshaw did steady the ship somewhat before he was ousted by Harrison Jones on 21.

The one constant throughout the innings was Sam Rimmington, who hit nine boundaries on his way to a vital 51 as the hosts were all out for 112 from 33 overs.

Andy Clarke finished with figures of 3-28 from a standout 12-over spell, with Jones claiming three scalps from just 25 balls at the expense of seven.

The home side wasted no time in making an impact in the field when Jack Rimmington disposed of Jon Eccles (1) and Jones (4) in quick succession, and Evans also got in on the act with the wicket of opener Andy Thomas (4).

Talented teenager Matthew Jones then took over proceedings with the ball, helping himself to the wickets of Sam Lewis (20), Tom Schrimshaw (2), Joe Lewis (0) and Clarke (6) to end the day on 4-10, and Lions’ captain Rimmington took his tally to 3-10 by adding Joe Clayton (0) to his list of victims.

The win was confirmed when Jamie Grimshaw despatched Daniel Nixon and Stuart Griffiths for six and one respectively, which saw the away side collapse to 48 all out after 31 overs of play.
