LLANDUDNO begin their quest for the North Wales Cricket League Premier Division title with a home encounter against Denbigh.

The Lions’ enjoyed a promising campaign last term before eventually falling short of eventual champions Bangor, but they have a good chance to get off to a positive note on April 18 against a side who possess a tremendous amount of talent.

Jack Rimmington’s side follow this up with a trip to title contender Brymbo on April 25, with May consisting of contests with Bangor, St Asaph, Pwllheli, Conwy and Menai Bridge, fixtures that will indicate just what sort of success can be expected this summer at The Oval.

Llandudno lost four of their last five games last season, but expectations are once again high for a club that harbours strong ambitions to progress both on and off the field.

Mochdre emerged as the surprise package of the Premier Division lasts season and they open on home soil against Llay Welfare, who finished second in Division One last season to achieve promotion.

This will be followed by clashes against Northop, Denbigh, Brymbo, Bangor St Asaph and Pwllheli as the club looks to build on a hugely successful campaign back in the top-flight.

Conwy make a welcome return to Premier Division level following their title triumph last season and they begin their journey against Gresford on April 18.

Rajjenu Britto’s men also take on St Asaph, Llay Welfare, Pwllheli, Northop, Llandudno and Denbigh during a crucial opening as they look to firmly establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with.

Division One championship contenders Llanrwst will aim to get off to a flyer during their opening day trip to Hawarden Park on April 18, with fixtures against Halkyn, Mold, Abergele, Bethesda, Connah’s Quay and Gwersyllt Park also in their immediate future.
