Another fantastic performance by Abergele saw them take the points against Rhewl at Pentre Mawr. 

Ed Rooney won the toss for Gele and put Rhewl in on a wet pitch. 

One ball into the innings saw Alex Gill smash the ball straight into the air and into the hands of Gareth Mullen at mid on to give Owen Lynam his first wicket.

Abergele had Rhewl at eight for three, Lynam had Simon Williams caught behind by Ben Garnett and also Karl Higgins had Duane Partelow caught at slip by Selwyn Morris.

Ieuan Lewis and Bob Mitchell put on a bit of a partnership before David Moulson got the break through. Moulson continued his impressive form with the ball as he took three Rhewl wickets giving him 14 from his last three games. His third wicket was a stumping from Garnett, who had a great day behind the stumps.

Lynam finished the Rhewl tail off Amir Jamil who took a catch to dismiss Huw Watson. Then Lynam clean bowled both Matt Best and Rob Eccles to restrict Rhewl to 71 all out. Lynam finished with impressive figures of five for eight.

Gele got off to a torrid time. They were 12-3 as Jamil, Martyn Hedge and Rooney were all dismissed.

Moulson and Garnett came together and put on 47 for the fourth wicket before Moulson departed for 29 as he was caught on the boundary off the bowling of Rob Eccles. It was good to see Moulson and Garnett both get back to form with a match winning partner. 

David Williams and Garnett saw it home for Gele, as 15-year-old Williams continues to impress at Abergele. Williams was not out for 10 as Garnett was not out on 13.

This was an impressive victory for Abergele and one they will try to build on as they travel to Connah's Quay next Saturday.
