Denbigh 170 all out
A ferocious batting onslaught saw Denbigh sink to a heavy defeat as they signed off their last home game of the season.
Having won the toss and deciding to bat first skipper Ben Wilcox-Jones decided to open the innings himself but when he departed with just 9 on the board the tone was set for the rest of the innings. The home side desperately needed batting partnerships to enable them to build a total but wickets were lost too regularly for any resistance to be seen. The core of the innings proved to be Tom Schrimshaw who yet again showed his class in this standard as he passed 500 runs for the season on his way to a fluid 46. The manner of his dismissal typified the innings however as he slashed at a wide delivery to present a catch to point. Gerallt Lyall batting in an unfamiliar position lower down the order added 20 and Alec Lewis managed to restrain his trademark Caribbean approach with a patient 28 as the home side reached 170 all out.
Early wickets often prove important and Denbigh have certainly managed to strike quickly this season and with the visitors 2 wickets down without any runs on the board the home side were ecstatic. Both wickets had been taken by Marcus Adams who reaffirmed his knack of claiming the top order batsmen. Unfortunately for Denbigh this only seemed to awaken the Bangor batsmen who then set upon the bowling with ferocious intent. Robert Marshall did the bulk of the damage smashing 72 off just54 balls with 9 fours and 4 sixes as he and Gwilym Lloyd Jones added 127 for the 3rd wicket to take the game away from Denbigh. Harrison Jones finally removed Marshall but his replacement Kevin Williams continued in much the same vein blasting 30 off 23 to see his side home.
An unfortunate way to finish for the season at your home ground but in a season of highlights Denbigh can be forgiven for coming up against an inspired Bangor batting attack.
