A DOUBLE-CENTURY was Denbigh's reward from yet another victorious weekend.

It's now 15 wins from 15 contests this season for the North Wales Cricket League Division One frontrunners.

In addition, a thumping nine-wicket success at home to Llanrwst took Denbigh's points tally for the campaign up to 201, which is a mammoth 46 clear of third-placed Hawarden Park.

This means the Ystrad Road outfit can afford three heavy defeats between now and the end of the season, and still gain promotion!

Turning back to Saturday's spot of action and Llanrwst's decision to bat first didn't turn out to be the correct one.

Initially, it looked to be a sound option as they reached 97 for two and looked to be on course to set a a decent target.

Iwan Edwards (25), Scott Thomas (26) and Aled Hughes (20) all had good starts to their innings, however Denbigh's attack soon hit back.

It was the introduction of Harrison Jones that saw the home side take complete control of proceedings.

While he only sent down seven overs, Jones returned a brilliant five for 21 as Llanrwst lost their last seven wickets for only 13 runs.

Indeed, in a major turnaround, the visitors slipped from 129 for four to 133 all out.

Also among the wickets for the league leaders were Sam Lewis (2-11), Andy Clarke (1-3), Darren Nixon (1-29) and Joe Lewis (1-32).

There were no trials and tribulations when it was Denbigh's turn to make use of the batting track.

The solitary bright spot for Llanrwst during the second portion of the afternoon came when Scott Thomas (1-41) dismissed Sam Lewis for 13.

It was then plain sailing for Denbigh, who reached a winning 135 for one inside 30 overs.

Opener Gerallt Lyall anchored the innings with his unbeaten 69 from 82 deliveries, while Harrison Jones completed a terrific all-round showing by making 40 not out from 62 balls as Denbigh secured maximum points.

Second-placed Halkyn maintained their push for promotion with a five-wicket outcome at Abergele, while Hawarden Park, who are third, won by 31 runs at Dolgellau.

Conwy maintained their promotion aims via a 19-run success at Marchwiel and Wrexham.
