LEAGUE and cup winners Humshaugh picked up their hard-earned silverware at the weekend. 

The Division One and Knock-out Cup champions were joined by players and representatives of other local cricket clubs for the West Tyne Senior Cricket League's annual dinner, on Friday night. 

The prestigious event, at Hexham Auction Mart's Tynedale Farmer Function Suite, saw more than 20 awards handed out for team and individual achievements over the cricket season. 

Guest speaker was Hexham man John Blance, who played in the West Tyne League for Humshaugh before making his name as a horse racing commentator.
