CONWY remain on the North Wales Cricket League Division One summit despite seeing their home clash with Mold abandoned.

Adverse weather once again played a significant part in proceedings across the region and hampered the overall outcome for the title hopefuls, who now enjoy a 14-point cushion over Llay Welfare in their pursuit of promotion to the top-flight.

A strong performance from the visitors in the middle saw them post a target of 227-6 from 48 overs, which was down in no small part to an exceptional unbeaten knock from skipper George Deniz.

The opener was in tremendous form throughout the entirety of the innings, finishing on 111 not out from 148 deliveries.

Another Mold batsman to stand out considerably was Duane Williams, who contributed a superb 53 to the overall score, with Usman Butt making a promising 36 before he was eventually dismissed.

Graham Meredith was the pick of the home bowling attack, claiming three wickets for the loss of 65 runs from a nine-over spell.

The hosts got off to a good start in their run chase before skipper Rajjenu Britto was skittled by Wes Gillam after making an encouraging 26 from 28 balls.

Opener Shaun Davies looked poised to make another big score before play was halted with the batsman on 38 not out, with brother Daniel Davies (15*) also there at the time of the stoppage, which saw Conwy in a promising position for victory after securing 81-1 from 12 overs.

A crucial weekend awaits Britto’s side, with the club entertaining title rivals Dolgellau on Saturday.
