It is now played seven and won seven for Builth Wells in the GB Liners Marches League first division after The Bulls kept the pressure on leaders, Goodrich with a 155-run win at Luctonians, writes Paul Worts.

The hosts put Builth in to bat and The Bulls totalled 218 for 9 from their 45 overs with in-form opener, Richard Galton helping himself to 55. Galton shared in stands of 47 with Ezra Tattershall (13) and 56 with Aled Powell (13). Builth then stumbled to 114 for 5 but captain, Dylan McPhee weighed in with 50 while Tanzeem Raees (19) and Sam Buckler helped push the total along.

Builth’s bowling and fielding has been outstanding all season and this was again the case as they bowled Lucton out for just 63 with the influential McPhee leading the way as he picked up 4-5 from six overs. Tumelo Yeki maintained his impressive form with 3-11 off six overs and Harri Phillips (2-27) and Andrew Claridge (1-16) completed Lucton’s demise.

Builth remain eight points behind Goodrich who eased to a six-wicket win at Kington while Garnons are third with Paul Williams making it back to back unbeaten centuries as they beat Wormelow by 2 wickets.

Builth Wells 2nds were put to the sword as they suffered a 213-run defeat at home against Moccas whose Sam Charles hit 135 not out in a total of 279 for 2. He was ably supported by Matty James (40 not out), Ryan James (36) and Jack Goring (18). For Builth, Eurig Town bowled a good spell of 1-25 from his eight overs. Despite 24 from former captain, Paul Rowe, Builth collapsed to 66 all out with Ian Morgan (12) and Towns (13) the only others to show any resistance. Veteran, Bill Bowen (3-17) and Ryan James (3-10) took the bowling honours for Moccas while Tom Price took 2-11.
