TWO city sportsmen have played for their country.

St Asaph Cricket Club duo Jason Foulkes and Matt Ryan were a part of the Wales squad in a T20 double-header.

Wales closed out their NCCA T20 campaign with two back-to-back victories over Buckinghamshire at High Wycombe.

Despite the absentees of skipper Sam Pearce, Lorenzo Machado, Ben Morris and Greg Smith, stand-in skipper Cam Herring was happy to bat first despite losing the toss on a bouncy, fast-paced pitch.

With the inception of the new Wales NC North side that officially forges a link between the opposite ends of the country, St Asaph's Jason Foulkes was handed a national counties debut with a view on the remainder of the 2022 season, with recalls for Muji Ilyas, Sam Jardine and Morgan Bevans.

Wales made 161 from their batting effort.

Buckinghamshire made a bright start, but the introduction of Foulkes into the attack turned things back in Wales' favour.

All-rounder Foulkes picked up his first national counties wicket in his first over, which was a brilliant wicket maiden).

He would claim two more victims to achieve stand-out figures of 3-18 from his four overs.

Wales followed this up with another victory over Buckinghamshire in their next contest, with Matt Ryan making his Welsh debut.

There were plenty of positives for acting head Coach Matt Thompson, deputising for the absent Darren Thomas.

He said: "It was really pleasing to see a number of new faces, and players that have been on the fringes put their hands up today.

"Morgan Bevans was superb with the bat, and Jason Foulkes equally with the ball. "This campaign has been a real learner for us as a group - looking back at one or two key moments in games against Oxfordshire and Bedfordshire, we'd probably be in finals day had we executed our skills better.

"But the margins, especially in a group where only one progresses out of five, are so small that you don't get a second chance.

"Moving forwards, we just have to keep doing the basics of the game well, take each game as it comes heading into the 50-over trophy and see where that gets us."
