IT was always going to be a tough away day for St Asaph Seconds and Menai Bridge Seconds.

The Anglesey side are targetting promotion from Division Two of the North Wales Cricket League and they managed to strengthen their aims with a 115-run triumph.

Batting first, Menai Bridge went on to set an imposing 289 for seven from their 40 overs.

Leading the way for the hosts were Matt Bixby (89) and Mathew Jones (38), as Charlie Williams (2-28) and Elliot Morris (2-57) caught the eye for the Saints.

St Asaph's reply was halted on 174.

Roger Cloete struck a superb 108 at the top of the order and Russell Moore made 28.

A fine bowling display made sure that it was a winning weekend for Denbigh Seconds.

In Division Three, Denbigh were able to see off Gwersyllt Park Seconds by six wickets.

James Tilley (4-25) and Josh Jones (3-7) were excellent with the ball as Gwersyllt Park were bundled out for 96.

Daniel Nixon (28) and Jon Eccles (23) were the main scorers in Denbigh's winning 97 for four.

Chasing didn't affect Ruthin Seconds during a successful North Wales Cricket League venture.

In Division Three, Ruthin secured a three-wicket success at home to Conwy Seconds, who set 177 for five (Carwyn Thomas 48, Paul Threlfall 2-16, Richard Henderson 2-33).

Ruthin's response was a well-times one and they reached 179 for seven with seven deliveries to spare.

Leading the charge were Oliver Jones (57) and Ifan Hanifa (56).
