SOUTH EAST WALES LEAGUE

Glamorgan Gazette - - Sport -

Ryan Watkins also en­joyed a strong bat­ting dis­play hit­ting 64 off 30 balls to help New­bridge reach 303-2.

Sud­brook posted a re­spectable 234-7 from their 50 overs, with Ross Lewis (38) and Charles Heaven (38no) lead­ing the way, but they couldn’t get near New­bridge.

A win for New­bridge this week­end could see them leapfrog Miskin at the top of the ta­ble ahead of their game in hand against Aber­gavenny on Sun­day, but vic­tory for Miskin would see them open up a big gap.

At the other end of the ta­ble, Pon­typridd slipped into the bot­tom two after a nine-wicket de­feat at fel­low strug­glers Croesy­ceil­iog.

Ponty strug­gled with the bat after they were in­serted with four of their bats­men fail­ing to add any runs to the tally. Three reached dou­ble fig­ures with opener Ali Saeed bag­ging 30.

But they were soon skit­tled out on 103 thanks to a five-for from Dan Evans (526).

Ste­wart Ro­den (69) and Wil­liam Smale (24) then eased Croesy to vic­tory.

Tondu re­main at the bot­tom and are cling­ing on to their Divi­sion One sta­tus . after their game with Pen­tyrch was can­celled due to the weather.

They are 55 points from safety with three games left to play.

Mon­mouth’s lead at the top in Divi­sion Two was cut to 14 points after they lost at Roger­stone Welfare by a huge 111 runs.

Black­wood Town weren’t able to fully take ad­van­tage as their game at Lis­vane was abandoned with Black­wood on 1077 chas­ing 201.

It’s as you were in Divi­sion Three with the top two both hav­ing their games abandoned.

Lead­ers Creigiau were on 185-8 after 43 overs be­fore the rain stopped play while Sully Cen­tu­ri­ons were bowled out on 158 with Vale on 26-1 from seven overs.

Mean­while, New­port IIIs clinched the Divi­sion Four ti­tle with a crush­ing 172run vic­tory over Mountain Ash in a topof-the-ta­ble clash.

Vale re­main top of the Divi­sion 3 2nd XI ta­ble de­spite los­ing by 19 runs at Sully Cen­tu­ri­ons, Sully bat­ted first and made 165-6, with Thomas Davies scor­ing 63, and Vale fin­ished short de­spite Gethin Merry’s 41.
