DINBYCH climbed off the foot of the WRU Division Three (North) table after giving an all round performance to beat Wrexham in a hard fought basement battle.

In a tale of two halves, Dinbych had to defend strongly in the first period when playing up the Graig Field slope, before showing their attacking skills after the break with the slope in their favour.

A young and inexperienced Dinbych side had the bonus of the reappearance of several stalwarts, including prop Roger Clayton and centre Dafydd Cartwright and especially the Winning brothers.

John, at lock, led the first half defensive effort with excellent tackling, while outside half Jamie controlled the tactical play as well as being a dangerous attacking runner.

Although Wrexham dominated the first half territorially, they found it hard to break through the home defence, with number eight Gareth Price giving an outstanding performance at the breakdown area with his jackelling skills, whilst wing Dylan Easton stood out with some strong tackling.

Dinbych scored the only try of the half against the run of play through a counter attack from deep.

Jamie Winning crossed for a try that was converted by full back Tom Evans.

Wrexham only had a penalty to show for their territorial dominance.

With the slope in their favour in the second half, Dinbych were able to show their attacking skills as they went through multiple phases of play.

Good play by centres Dafydd Cartwright and Harley Lloyd Jones created the opportunities for wing Dylan Easton to show his attacking prowess, whilst fellow wing Gwern Williams Pierce crossed for Dinbych's second try.

Tom Evans added three penalties for Dinbych, while Wrexham bagged a consolation try.
