GELE landed back-to-back victories at the weekend with another great performance against Rhewl thanks to some sensational bowling from Owen Lynam.
Skipper Ed Rooney made the visitors bat first on a wet pitch, and the decision paid immediate dividends as Alex Gill smashed the first ball of the innings straight into the hands of Gareth Mullen at mid on to give Lynam his first wicket.
Rhewl slumped to eight for three, with Lynam having Simon Williams caught behind by Ben Garnett and Selwyn Morris catching Duane Partelow at slip from a Karl Higgins ball, before a rally from Ieuan Lewis and Bob Mitchell was broken by the in-form David Moulson.
The spinner took three wickets, totalling 14 from his last three matches, with the third courtesy of a stumping from Garnett.
Lynam finished the Rhewl tail off to complete his five wicket haul for just eight runs, as Rhewl were restricted to 71.
An early wobble set Gele off on the wrong foot, as quick losses saw them drop to 12 for three.
Garnett and Moulson came together and put on 47 for the fourth wicket, with the latter departing for 29. Fifteen-year-old David Williams and Garnett then saw it home for Gele, with the youngster continuing his impressive start for Gele with 10 as Garnett ended on 13 unbeaten.
Gele’s seconds came up short against Conwy, who romped to an 88 run victory.
Rick Ashby and Rajeev Metri were Gele’s top wicket takers with four and three for 17 respectively, as Conwy put up 133 for nine. Monir Ahmed and Gareth Ireland chipped in with the remaining wickets.
A lacklustre response saw them end up short though, as only opener Anthony Howe (15) and David Hockridge (12) reached double figures.
AN ABERGELE cricketer got an extra reward for his superb display in last weekend’s matches after winning a Twitter competition run by England star Jimmy Anderson.
Spinner David Moulson, 23, won a goody bag from the England opener after taking six for 16 from his 9.2 overs against Carmel and District last week.
The 29-year-old, who has more than 250 test wickets, asked his 304,000 followers to Tweet their weekend figures, with the top performing batsman and bowlers winning a bag full of prizes for their efforts, including a signed England test shirt and a signed picture.
