ABERGELE made a promising start against North Wales Cricket League Division One leaders Conwy before the contest eventually fell victim to the weather.

The home side made a promising opening to their time in the field when skipper Karl Higgins took the prized wicket of opener Evan Williams when he played a delivery into the hands of Ben Garnett after making just two.

Things got even better from a Gele perspective soon after, and once again it was Higgins who made the most of the overcast conditions to remove talented batsman Danny Davies on six, taking his final tally to 2-14 from a six over spell.

Brother Shaun Davies proved a far sterner proposition to remove from the crease and looked set to make a big score, but he was restricted to 33 not out as play was halted and subsequently cancelled for the day after 13 overs of play.

A frustrating afternoon for Gele sees them remain second from bottom in the standings as they prepare for a trip to Gwersyllt Park on Saturday.

St Asaph’s North Wales Cricket League Premier Division encounter against Brymbo at Elwy Grove Park was halted without play, and Prestatyn’s Liverpool and District Competition First Division tie at Wavertree also suffering the same fate.

The Saints are next in action this Saturday at title challengers Menai Bridge, with Prestatyn taking on Fleetwood Hesketh at Beach Close.
