IT dozen get any better than this for the lads from Ystrad Road!

Denbigh made it 12 wins from 12 matches this season with a 95-run success during their trip to Buckley.

This means that Denbigh's lead at the top of the North Wales Cricket League Division One standings is now 35 points over second-placed Halkyn, while they are 47 points ahead of Conwy, in third.

This means Denbigh can suffer a couple of big defeats in their last 10 matches and still gain promotion.

Turning back to Saturday and the decision to bat first was ultimately the correct one from Denbigh.

However, maybe that didn't look to be the case initially as the visitors struggled to 29 for four.

A mammoth third wicket partnership of 172 then rescued the situation.

This was put together by opener Sam Lewis (125) and number six batsman Daniel Nixon (52 not out).

This allowed Denbigh to reach 211 for five from their 45 overs.

While Buckley's reply saw more batsmen reaching double figures, nobody went on to compile a match-winning knock.

Alex Storey top scored with 23 not out as the hosts were eventually all out for 116 in the 39th over.

Stuart Griffiths took the bowling plaudits with his 3-22 return from nine overs, while also impressive were the likes of Alec Lewis (2-15), Harrison Jones (2-19) and Darren Nixon (2-19).
