PONTNEWYNYDD gave themselves a massive boost in their quest to avoid relegation from Division One of the Thomas, Carroll Welsh Club Cricket Conference when they beat doomed Cefn Forest by 141 runs at Pentrepiod Road.

Tony Burt and Butler batted bravely for the hosts with 25 and 23 but they were bowled out for 94 with Joe Matthews taking 4-17, Williams 3-18 and Barry 2-32.

All the other four top-tier matches at Abercynon, Cardiff, Hopkinstown and Pentwyn were called off due to saturated pitches.

Penarth III's, chasing promotion to Division Two, gained an important 2 run victory over Radyr III's with Conrad Adams (84) and Steve Newman (6-38) their star performers.
