It was a case of flirting with relegation for Llandysul last season but this time around there has been a significant change of fortune at Tir-Dref with the Teifisiders in a lofty fifth position.

With five games remaining it is conceivable that Ben Edkins and his merry men could finish in fourth or even third.

In tasting success for the seventh time Llandysul sprang a five-wicket win over bottom of the pile Gowerton at Victoria Road.

Electing to bat the homesters posted 156-9 in 50 overs as opener Lee Nicholas led the way with 41, an innings that included five boundaries and Christopher Mason in the lower order contributed 28 that included three fours and a six.

Luke Swift was best of the visiting bowlers with figures of 3-33 in nine overs.

As the visitors replied Gary Williams (37) and Ieuan Paske (13) made a bright opening and skipper Edkins at first wicket down was not out 41 as the target was reached for the loss of five wickets in the 39th over.

It completed the double for the Teifi Valley side who beat their rivals by nine wickets at Tir-Dref in May.

Llandysul 2nds made it a double for the club when pulling off a 66-run win over visitors Llantwit Major Cavaliers.

Home openers Gareth Chapple (34) and Meurig Jones (59) got their side off on the right foot and skipper Huw Evans was unbeaten as his side got the runs for the loss of seven wickets and banked 19 points.
