Cricket: Trio get great experience with regional sides

A number of talented cricketers at Rydal Penrhos continued their impressive campaign with their regional sides as they prepare to embark on the school’s winter nets programme.

Josh Massey, who is joining the school on a sports scholarship in September, got some valuable experience as part of the Menai Bridge first XI in two notable fixtures last weekend.

The Welsh youth international played a part in their resounding 114-run win over Chirk, which extended their advantage at the North Wales Cricket League Division One summit.

Massey was there at the end of the innings and made ten not out as Bridge posted a formidable target of 333-5 from their allotted 50 overs in the middle off just five deliveries.

He also made the trip with Bridge’s Twenty20 squad for their ECB National Club Twenty20 - Group 5 Area Final 2018 Semi-Final clash against Checkley, and managed to hit a second-best score of 19 in the face of consistent pressure in their eight-wicket loss against high-quality opposition.

Sam Bixby was also in action over the weekend for Bridge’s second unit, who secured a six-wicket victory at Carmel and District to keep their North Wales 2nd XI League Premier Division championship hopes alive.

Another incoming sports scholarship continued his encouraging return to competitive fixtures, with Owen Reilly bowling six overs and making a stubborn 17 from 52 balls in Pwllheli’s 63-run Premier Division loss at Gresford.
