CONWY secured another impressive derby triumph thanks to a two-wicket victory at Llandudno.

The North Wales Cricket League Group A rivals were involved in a thrilling clash that went down to the wire, but last season’s Division One champions managed to prevail despite leaving it late.

Things did not begin well for the home side as opener Danial Evans was run out after making just two, and he was followed back to the pavilion soon after by Ranjith Thozhuthingal (6) thanks to a stunning delivery from Graham Meredith.

Jamie Grimshaw fared better but was ousted Guto Davies on 20. Things looked up for the Lions thanks to a fine partnership from the brother-duo of Sam and Jack Rimmington, which threatened to swing momentum in their favour once again.

Opener Sam Rimmington made 43 before he was finally removed from the crease by Davies, with Jack superbly caught and bowled by Rajjenu Britto after contributing 40.

That was as good as it got for the hosts, with only Ajay Dhawan (18) making it into double-figures thereafter as they set a target of 162 all out from 37 overs.

Britto was the pick of the visiting bowlers, claiming three wickets for the loss of just seven runs, with Davies also claiming three victims at the expense of 34.

Omari Jones-Lowers got Llandudno off to a flyer in the field with the wicket of Anthony Thorp for seven, but notable contributions from Shaun Davies (23), Evan Williams (26) and Johnathan James Davies (24) kept the innings ticking along without producing a massive knock between them.

Lewis Jones (3) and Phillip Davies (5) were removed cheaply in the middle order, but a standout performance under pressure from Danny Davies proved to be the difference.

The talented player smashed his way to an unbeaten 39, enabling Conwy to reach their target for the loss of eight wickets with just three balls remaining.
