CENTURY knocks from Danial Evans and Matthew Jones gave Llandudno an impressive 115-run home success over Denbigh in the Welsh Cup.

The Lions’ produced their finest batting performance of the season to overcome their in-form North Wales Cricket League Premier Division rivals, setting a superb target of 347-4 from their allotted 40 overs.

Evans led the way from the opening position with a superb 121 from just 73 deliveries, with the gifted batsman smashing 19 boundaries before he was eventually run out by Sam Lewis.

Jones was equally as impressive, firing an unbeaten 101 from 96 balls to further enhance his side’s position, and the duo of Sam Rimmington and Luke Kenworthy hit 39 and 45 respectively during a dominant time in the middle.

The away side tried to make a fight of it thanks in no small part to an exceptional 95 knock from Lewis, coupled with a 65 score from Andy Thomas, but their form was not replicated by other batsmen as they were all out for 232.

Tom Thornton was the pick of the home bowlers, claiming four wickets for the loss of 44 runs.

It proved to be a memorable weekend for Evans, who amassed another century during Saturday’s convincing 138-run win at Pontblyddyn.

Evans was in relentless mood to end the innings on 126 not out, and Jones hit 70 to enable the visitors to record 268-4 from their 50 overs at the crease.

The Lions’ replicated this performance in the field to restrict their opponents to 130 all out, with Jones ending with figures of 4-32 and the pair of Jack Rimmington and Evans claiming three apiece.

Llandudno will look to take this positive momentum into next Saturday’s trip to St Asaph at Elwy Grove Park.
