LLANDUDNO’s crunch North Wales Cricket League Premier Division clash with title hopefuls Menai Bridge came to a frustrating conclusion due to adverse weather.

The match was abandoned after 38 overs with the Lions’ in a compromising position at the crease, but both sides had to settle for three points apiece which did nothing for their overall aspirations of lifting silverware at the end of the campaign.

Opener Sam Rimmington was out cheaply at the hands of Dion Holden for a 19 knock early on, and the same bowler also disposed of dangerous batsman Danial Evans for a score of just one on his way to figures of 2-9.

Overseas player Luke Kenworth mustered just eight before he played a Gerallt Roberts delivery into the hands of Carl Jones, and Mathew Jones was ousted by Sean O’Callaghan on 19.

Ethan Hill showed promise on his way to an unbeaten 29 being rain brought an abrupt end to proceedings, and the Lions’ currently occupy fourth spot ahead of their crunch clash at leaders Bangor on Saturday.

Mochdre were relieved to see the rainfall in the home clash against Denbigh, with the surprise title contenders on 86-6 after 29 overs before the abandonment.

Stewart Williams’ 20 was the only score of note from the hosts, with Alec Lewis finishing on 4-29 following a standout spell. Mochdre travel to Pontblyddyn on Saturday.

Colwyn Bay had a wasted journey to Liverpool and District Competition Premier Division rivals Orrell Red Triangle as the contest was cancelled without a ball being bowled.

The relegation candidates sit 17 points adrift of safety as they prepare to welcome New Brighton Villa to Penrhyn Avenue on Saturday.

Division One leaders Conwy looked like they were in for a game at Abergele before the match was abandoned, with Gele skipper Karl Higgins taking the prized wicket of opener Evan Williams for two.

It was Higgins who made the most of the overcast conditions to remove talented batsman Danny Davies on six soon after, taking his final tally to 2-14 from a six over spell.

Brother Shaun Davies proved a far sterner proposition to remove from the crease and looked set to make a big score, but he was restricted to 33 not out as play was halted after 13 overs.

Conwy host Mold this Saturday as they look to extend their 20-point cushion at the summit.
