WILL Brymbo be the kings of the road tomorrow?

It's a long trek to Bangor in the Premier Division for Dan Parry's side seven days after a bizarre incident during their derby triumph versus Llay.

While Brymbo secured a comfortable seven-wicket success at home, the main talking point was a passing motorists driving away with the ball!

In a post on Twitter, Llay skipper Tom Crewe said: "Got hit for six over my head today onto a road and some guy passing in his car picked it up and drove off with it."

Parry added: "Tom Crewe was bowling and Jake James hit him onto the road!

"I have seen sixes hit at Brymbo and onto the road before, but nobody stopping to take a ball!

"It wasn't brand new, it was about 10-to-15 overs old."

A fielder had gone down the hill to bring the ball back, only to return with the bad news.

"I was just mad!" added Parry.

"I thought 'you can't be serious?'"

Instead of looking at the road, Brymbo are on the road on Saturday as they head to Bangor.

Parry hasn't turned out at the Gwynedd club for around five years and he admitted: "I haven't really noticed them to be fair.

"There's that many clubs around here, you're looking at clubs around here first.

"I don't know what to expect from them.

"They're a strong side normally and they have got an overseas, so it's always one of them.

"It will be an interesting one.

Mohamed Nilam Jayman is out with a hamstring injury, while Sam Aplin will come into the side.

Gresford, beaten at second-placed St Asaph last time out, will look to benefit from home comforts as they welcome Pontblyddyn.

Reflecting on the 93-run loss at the Saints, Gresford skipper Matt Thompson said: "We were well beaten, but we did have a few things that didn't go our way.

"Simon Perry took two wickets in his first two overs and then he had a side strain."

While Perry remained on the ground to field, he couldn't bowl any further overs.

"We got them to 100 for four, but unfortunately they then got away from us.

"It was always going to be too many (runs to chase).

"We battled hard, but we played a few poor shots.

Pleasing for Gresford was the performance with the bat of Sam Thompson lower down the order and he formed a few good partnerships to secure a point for the visitors.

Pontblyddyn suffered batting woes in last weekend's derby defeat to Mold, but Thompson stressed: "They have had some good results so far.

"We will have to be on our game to beat them."

Simon Perry is likely to be out for the next few weeks, but Wes Evans is expected to come back into the side tomorrow.

Pontblyddyn haven't been able to field a settled side so far this season and that was once more the case in the loss against Mold.

"We didn't have a team again," said skipper Rhys Jones, who was without the likes of Ryan Dunning, Mark Neath, vice-captain James Griffiths and Chris Myles.

"We didn't bat well enough and they bowled well," admitted Jones.

"I was very disappointed with the batting."

Looking ahead to tomorrow's match with Gresford, Pontblyddyn will welcome back Griffiths, Neath and Dunning.

"Gresford have got very good players," added Jones.

"Some play in the representative team.

"When we played them in the league a few years ago, I was very impressed with them.

"It will be a very tough game."

There's a lengthy trek for Northop to look forward to tomorrow as they go to Pwllheli.

Elsewhere, St Asaph will look to maintain their good form at home to Llandudno.
