MOLD finished a Premier Division game at 3pm a couple of weeks ago, but Gresford were able to beat that last weekend!

Asked what time the home meeting with Pwllheli drew to a close, Gresford captain Matt Thompson said "Five-to-two!"

That's unlikely to be the case as they welcome Brymbo for a big derby tomorrow and Gresford are likely to look towards Chris Ellwood for a spark once again.

He was the star of the show against Pwllheli with a six-wicket haul, including the vital scalp of skipper Jason Underwood, who has been a thorn in Gresford's side over the years.

"Chris got him out nice and early," added Thompson.

"He is on fire."

Looking ahead to the Brymbo encounter, Thompson added: "They have had a good start and we always have a good game versus Brymbo.

"We should be unchanged."

Brymbo go into the match after a big win over Mold and skipper Dan Parry said: "We started on top to be fair.

"Unfortunately they put a few catches down to start with.

"You can't drop (James) Claybrook, that's all I'll say!

As far as the bowling went, he added: "It was nice to see some of the spinners taking wickets.

"It was not far away from the compete performance."

More of the same is the target for tomorrow's derby and Parry said: "With five wins from five, they have got to be thinking as themselves as title contenders.

"They have got some good players."

Coming into the Brymbo side tomorrow will be Fraser Smellie and Wales U15s all-rounder Sam Aplin.

A lack of players is affecting Llay's ability to be competitive in the top flight this season.

It's a trip to Pontblyddyn tomorrow and skipper Tom Crewe said: "We've got three lads going to Wrexham for the play-off semi-final."

Llay are still searching for a first win of the season, but the future does look bright.

"In Llay there's a new big estate being built," added Crewe.

"I have been around them with leaflets and with the juniors, we had 36 for the first week."

Llay will be without Jacob Roberts, Tom Parry and Mike Pritchard tomorrow, with Huw Jones coming back in.

Anyone who would like more details on joining up with Llay as a player can get in touch with the club through Facebook and Twitter.

There are a number of injury concerns for Pontblyddyn.

Skipper Rhys Jones is out with a broken toe and he is joined on the sidelines by fellow injury victims Mike Littler (shoulder) and Chris Moss (hamstring).

Mark Neath is away on holiday as Pontblyddyn look to recover from a heavy defeat at defending champions St Asaph last time out.

"It will be tough against Llay with four out," said Jones.

One plus for Pontblyddyn is the return from Sefton of James Hughes.

Northop, sixth in the division, will head to a Mochdre side which is currently 10th.

It's a pivotal day in the Premier Division title chase.

Second-placed Menai Bridge welcome league leaders St Asaph for a huge clash, with both sides harbouring 100 per cent winning records.

Elsewhere, Pwllheli go to Llandudno.

There's a lofty Shropshire League clash in store for Chirk.

Aiming for a fourth win on the bounce, Luke Gardner's fourth-placed side host Bridgnorth Seconds, who are second.

Chirk Seconds pay a visit to Willey Seconds.
