WHAT an astonishing way to fall to a second league loss of the season!

Denbigh looked to be well on course to maintain their push for the North Wales Cricket League Premier Division title when they dismissed hosts Llandudno for only 112 on Saturday.

However, the hosts came roaring back after tea and they bowled the Ystrad Road side out for only 48 to complete a remarkable triumph.

There was no sign of the drama to come when Llandudno won the toss and elected to make first use of the batting track at The Oval.

Denbigh were soon on the front foot thanks to opening duo Jack Griffiths and Andy Clarke.

Griffiths took 2-26 from his seven overs, while Clarke's 12 overs returned 3-28.

When Llandudno were reduced to 54-6, an extremely early finish looked to be likely.

However, the display of Jack Rimmington meant that Llandudno retained their hopes of a fightback.

Opener Rimmington hit a crucial 51 from 65 deliveries, before he was dismissed by Denbigh skipper Harrison Jones.

With Jamie Grimshaw (21) and Andrew Christian (12) adding important efforts in the lower order, the hosts reached 112.

Harrison Jones claimed 3-7 from 4.1 overs, while Sam Lewis bagged 2-33.

Denbigh will have been targeting a solid start to their reply, but they were soon tied up in knots.

Jack Rimmington was in superb form to grab 3-10 from nine overs and the visitors were reduced to 6-4.

Sam Lewis looked to lead a response from Denbigh with his knock of 20, but he was the only visiting batsman who managed to reach double figures.

Matthew Jones (4-10) and Jamie Grimshaw (2-14) were impressive with the ball as Denbigh were bowled out for just 48 in the 32nd over.

When the dust had settled, Llandudno picked up a lucky 13 points from their efforts, while Denbigh returned home with a couple of points.
