TYNEDALE’s junior cricketers have won a third trophy of the season after the club’s U18s lifted the Mark Stoneman Cup.

They brushed aside Ryton by 10 wickets in a rampant cup final performance at Burnopfield.

The prestigious competition is for teams in the Tyneside division of the Durham Cricket Board Junior League.

Tynedale bowled out Ryton for just 28 runs in 10.4 overs, with Liam Stephenson taking 3-3, George Cook 2-6, James Percival 2-9, and Matthew Scott 1-1.

It took just 3.1 overs for Tynedale to win, and they scored 29-0, with Nathan Byerley 19 not out, and Owen Murtough six not out.

Coach Tom Cant, who is also Tynedale’s first team captain, said: “Our bowlers were on top form and that made it very difficult for Ryton.

“We have played them in the league this season and it was much more competitive, but that’s cricket.

“This was a fantastic cup to win, it bears the name of Mark Stoneman, a former club professional at Tynedale.”

Newcastle-born Stoneman now plays for Surrey. The England international has also represented Durham.

Tynedale’s U18s were set to play their final fixture of the Durham league season against Burnopfield on Wednesday night, in a match which would decide the league title.

This season has already seen Tynedale’s U13s and U15s win league and cup doubles.
