PRESTATYN picked up their first win of the Liverpool and District Competition Division One campaign with an eye-catching four-wicket success at Fleetwood and Hesketh.

The Beach Close side had a standout innings from overseas player Waqar Khan and bowling contributions from Sheil Sethi and Adam Tidswell to thank for their victory, and they now sit in fifth spot ahead of their home tie against Wigan on Saturday.

Tidswell made a good start with the ball by taking the wickets of Alex Hassall and Geeth Arachchige for 17 and one respectively, and he also added skipper Andrew Watts soon after the dangerous middle-order batsman scored eight.

Welsh youth international Sethi also aided his team during the opening exchanges with the scalps of Irshan Desai and Jack Morris-Holland for five apiece, and he ousted Steve Gregory and Daniel Murphy from the middle after the duo failed to contribute a single run between them on his way to figures of 4-32.

The one constant for the home side was opener Matthew Howard, who made a classy 54 before he becomes another victim of Tidswell, who concluded a mammoth 19-over spell on 4-47 as they set a target of 148 all out.

Things did not begin well for the visitors as Sethi (1) and David Harris (4) were both dismissed by Gregory, with Robbie Rimmington falling foul of a Tom Wareing ball after he made just four.

Kieron Tidswell steadied the ship with a double-figure score of 16, but it was the knock of Khan that turned the game on its head before he was eventually despatched by Arachchige for an outstanding 73.

This proved to be the difference between the two sides, and a 29 knock from Rhys Jones enable the away side to reach their required total for the loss of six wickets after 47 overs at the crease.
