Cricket World rounds up the top June performers from all 26 of the ECB’s Premier Leagues.

Callington have a ten-point advantage over second-placed Werrington in the Cornwall Premier League. Both teams are yet to lose a match in 2012 and are joined in that achievement by third-placed St Austell. Grampound Road and Troon are in the completely polar position of having yet to win game this season, meaning that they occupy the final two places in the table.

Batting – June top three
1. Jake Libby (Callington) – 452 runs from six matches
2. Dave Roberts (St Just) – 290 runs from four matches
3. Matthew Robins (Callington) – 276 runs from six matches
Top score: Jake Libby (145 against Grampound Road on 4th June)

Bowling – June top three
1. Robert Harrison (Truro) – 19 wickets at an average of 9.68
2. Tom Sharp (Truro) – 16 wickets at 7.38
3. Kyle van Rooyen (Truro) – 13 wickets at 14
Best bowling: Stanny Simon (six for 48 for St Austell against Paul on 4th June)

Player of the month: Jake Libby is very much the outstanding player of the past month. He has three centuries and one fifty from his six matches and averaged an incredible 90.4 for the month.

Bovey Tracey continue to top the Devon Premier League, although their lead has been narrowed by the prolific form of second-placed Exmouth, who are just four points behind. Budleigh Salterton and Heathcoat are the two teams in the relegation zone, with only three wins from 18 matches between them.

Batting – June top three
1. David Lye (Exmouth) – 266 runs from four matches
2. Neil Hancock (Bovey Tracey) – 220 runs from four matches
3. Glen Querl (North Devon) – 209 runs from four matches
Top score: Glen Querl (136 not out against Bradninch on 9th June)

Bowling – June top three
1. Neil Hancock (Bovey Tracey) – 12 wickets at an average of 9.25
2. Christopher Bradley (Bovey Tracey) – 11 wickets at 10.36
3. Jamie Overton (North Devon) – 10 wickets at 6
Best bowling: Bobby Dawson (five for 24 for Budleigh Salterton against Sidmouth on 9th June)

Player of the month: There are several men to pick from, but Neil Hancock just shades it thanks to his all-round exploits for Bovey Tracey. He has been consistent with the bat, making at least 35 in each of his four innings, while he has also taken 12 wickets with the ball.

Llandudno have opened up a handsome 15-point lead at the top of the North Wales Premier League thanks to their haul of six wins and just one loss from their 11 matches. However, their two closest rivals, Menai Bridge and Mochdre, have yet to lose at all, although they have been more affected by the wet weather. Bangor and Llay Welfare languish at the foot of the table.

Batting – June top three
1. Aled Williams (Llandudno) – 210 runs from three matches
2. Duncan Midgley (Llandudno) – 200 runs from three matches
3. Grove Venter (St Asaph) – 151 runs from four matches
Top score: Glenn Chambers (127 not out for Pontblyddyn against Northop on 30th June)

Bowling – June top three
1. Jack Rimmington (Llandudno) – 12 wickets at an average of 7.67
2. Wayne Smith (Brymbo) – 10 wickets at 12.4
3. Chris Bolton (Mold) – nine wickets at 12.44
Best bowling: Chris Bolton (six for 53 against Connah’s Quay on 2nd June)

Player of the month: Glenn Chambers may have only played two matches for Pontblyddyn, but he has certainly made the most of them. He hit an unbeaten 127 last week against Northop and has taken six wickets at a cost of just 67 runs.

Defending champions Cardiff have enjoyed a good month and sit top of the South Wales Premier League with 131 points. Second-placed Sully Centurions are two points behind, with Port Talbot Town four further adrift.  Newport and Usk are both yet to break the hundred-point barrier and occupy the final two places.

Batting – June top three
1. Richard Grant (Ynysygerwn) – 216 runs from four matches
2. Lloyd Smith (Sully Centurions) – 207 runs from four matches
3. David Kirtley (Cardiff) – 183 runs from three matches
Top score: Richard Grant (121 against Port Talbot Town on 9th June)

Bowling – June top three
1. Richard Grant (Ynysygerwn) – nine wickets at an average of 9.78
2. Geraint Bowden (Ynysygerwn) – eight wickets at 12.38
3. Matthew Donoghue (Ammanford) – eight wickets at 17.75
Best bowling: Tomos Evison (six for 37 for Sully Centurions against Ynysygerwn on 30th June)

Player of the month: Richard Grant tops both the runs and wickets charts so is the comfortable winner of this month’s award. His best match came against Port Talbot Town, where he took five for 14 to go with his century.

Bridgwater and Bath are rapidly making it look like a two-horse race for the West of England Premier League title. The former have six wins from nine games to give them 153 points, while the latter are just eight behind, also with six wins. Taunton Deane and Gloucester City Winget have only one win between them so far in 2012 and are in the relegation zone.

Batting – June top three
1. Nick Trainor (Frocester) – 270 runs from four matches
2. Keith Parsons (Taunton St Andrews) – 226 runs from five matches
3. James Trundley (Taunton St Andrews) – 219 runs from five matches
Top score: Nick Trainor (139 not out against Gloucester City Winget on 30th June)

Bowling – June top three
1. Michael Parsons (Taunton St Andrews) – 12 wickets at an average of 12.08
2. Lloyd Alley (Taunton St Andrews) – 11 wickets at 18
3. Jacob Lintott (Taunton St Andrews) – 10 wickets at 13.7
Best bowling: Simon Marchant (six for 31 for Bath against Gloucester City Winget on 23rd June)

Player of the month: Nick Trainor is always one of the best performers and June was no different. His best match came last week against Gloucester City Winget, where he supplemented his unbeaten century with two wickets.
