NELSON strikes again!

The unluckiest score in cricket halted Denbigh's hopes of achieving a weekend triumph.

North Wales Cricket League hosts Llandudno dismissed the team from Ystrad Road for 111 to complete a 126-run Premier Division triumph.

Aiming for a victory to maintain their title dreams, Llandudno opted to make first use of the batting track after they won the toss.

A solid start was in the offing for the side from the coast, with openers Sam Rimmington and Dan Evans putting together a stand of 40 for the first wicket.

This partnership was brought to a close when Rimmington was run out by Alec Lewis for 18.

Lewis was in the thick of the action once more soon after when he dismissed Keegan Armstrong for a duck, aided by Joe Clayton's catch.

While there were no partnerships in excess of 50, Llandudno kept their total ticking over, with Dan Evans' knock of 72 leading the way.

Further good efforts were supplied by the likes of Ethan Hill (39), Ajay Dhawan (31) and Jamie Grimshaw (22).

Denbigh did manage to dismiss their hosts for 237 in the final over.

Stuart Griffiths was the pick of the visitors' attack, claiming 4-30, with wickets also going the way of Harrison Jones (2-48), Joe Lewis (2-61) and Alec Lewis (1-45).

As with the early portion of the afternoon, there was a solid start to the Denbigh response after tea.

Openers Gerallt Lyall and Harrison Jones took the visitors' tally along to 27 before the first wicket fell.

It was Lyall who departed for 19.

Llandudno wasted little time in taking complete control of the contest and Denbigh were soon reduced to 41-5.

Captain Harrison Jones struck 19 for Denbigh before he became one of Tom Thornton's four victims.

The end looked to be near when Denbigh slumped to 62-7, however some light was provided by a 32-run stand for the eighth wicket.

This was put together by Tom Schrimshaw (45) and Andy Clarke (12).

In the end, Denbigh found themselves being dismissed for 111 in the 33rd over.

Tom Thornton was Llandudno's star bowler with his 4-39 return, well supported by Will Sissons (2-21) and Dan Evans (2-25).

When the dust had settled, Llandudno were left to pick up all 15 points that were on offer.
