Tim claimed the Davies family bragging rights as not only did his Montgomery side beat arch rivals Welshpool but also succeeded in catching out his brother.

The eagerly anticipated clash saw Pool make the trip to Lymore seeking their first win of the season while the hosts were looking for a second successive victory.

Welshpool were all out for 137 as Sam Williams (4-26), Alex Bromley (3-30) and Ed Bennett (2-34) struck.

For the second successive week the Pool innings was led by captain Russell Cadwallader until he was caught by Rob Bennett off Williams for a top scoring 40.

Nick Davies (33) and Paul Chapman (20) opened for Pool before Patrick Davies looked to lead the Pool middle order until being caught by brother Tim off Bromley for 18 to leave Welshpool defending 137.

Montgomery knocked off the winning runs as Aaron Ruff-Cock scored an unbeaten 36.

Ruff-Cock received support from opener Thomas Corfield (22) and middle order partnerships with Charlie Clinton (28) and Ieuan Griffiths (22) pushing Monty toward their target before Davies (8no) steered the hosts to 138-6 and glory.

Rob Anderson (2-32) and Tom Bowen (2-14) were the pick of the Pool attack with support from Patrick Davies (1-30) and Dennis Morris (1-3).

Monty spokesman Sam Williams said: “It’s always nice to win a derby match.

“It was a great team effort. We have won two on bounce now and we are now looking forward to our our T20 match against Wroxeter on Thursday night as we bid to retain our Junior Slam trophy.”

Meanwhile Tim Davies was also buoyant after helping his side to glory.

Davies said: “It’s always nice to take any catch, but when it’s your brother and hear his subsequent moan of displeasure, it adds the icing on the cake.”
