PRESTATYN Cricket Club will begin their Liverpool and District Competition Second Division campaign on the road.

The promotion hopefuls side travel to Wavertree for their campaign opener on Saturday, April 25 as fixtures were revealed last week.

This will be followed by a home encounter against Southport Trinity at Beach Close, before facing Hightown St Mary’s, Sutton (St Helens) and Parkfield Liscard during a busy May.

A home clash against Caldy opens July’s schedule, which will also see them clash with Spring View, Norley Hall and Maghull.

The club will be hoping for a huge turnaround in fortunes after being relegated from Division One last term following a disappointing campaign.

St Asaph open their expected North Wales Cricket League Premier Division title challenge on home soil against defending champions Bangor.

A significant test awaits Will Ryan’s side on the first day of the season on Saturday, April 18, with Bangor emerging as convincing victors to claim the crown last summer.

They follow this up with a trip to newly promoted Conwy, who won the Division One championship to secure the place in the top-flight, before coming up against Pwllheli, Llandudno, Menai Bridge, Mochdre and Gresford during what looks to be an extremely tough May.

June sees the City side compete with Llay Welfare, Northop and Brymbo, in addition to a hotly anticipated derby clash with Denbigh at Elwy Grove Park.

The Saints’ looked primed for a championship challenge early last season before fading considerably in the second half of the campaign.

Abergele face a difficult start to their North Wales Cricket League Division One season with a visit to championship contenders Bethesda.

Gele showed signs of life during their final few fixtures last season and will look to build on this positive momentum this time around, with the club on the road at recently relegated Connah’s Quay and Gwersyllt Park following their opening day encounter.

Their first home game sees Gele welcome a formidable Llanrwst outfit on May 9, before closing out the month against Bangor 2nds, Pontblyddyn and Ruthin.
