Bowling star Kelly becomes century-making hero
BANGOR edged ever nearer to the North Wales League Sunday 3rd XI Division title with a 15-0 whitewash of Carmel & District at Tŷ Newydd.
The result gives the Citizens a 33-point lead at the pinnacle, with secondplace Menai Bridge having a game in hand.
Bangor have three fixtures remaining and the Bridge four. Both are set to meet at Tyn-y-Caeau on the final day of the campaign.
Last Sunday visitors Carmel called the coin correctly and put the home side into bat.
Bangor scored for fun, their eventual total a massive 258-4 off 40 overs.
Aidan Kelly, a bowling star for the Citizens this season, shone with the bat on this occasion, recording a maiden century in scoring 103 not out. Opener Nigel Barry added 60.
Carmel’s reply was short-lived as they nosedived to 54 all out in just 19 overs.
Saif Ijaz returned remarkable figures of three overs, two maidens, four wickets for one run, while Jon Hendry claimed 3-15 and man of the match Kelly 2-10 to reach 66 victims for the summer at only 6.36 apiece.
That makes Kelly the entire league’s top wickettaker, with club-mate Francois Mostert second on 56.
