THERE were some unusual scorelines when cricket and football came together this weekend.

Haydon Bridge Football Club hosted a sports day in memory of Jerry Taylor.

Jerry was a well-known cricketer for Allendale and Hexham as well as playing football for Haydon Bridge Veterans.

However, he was tragically killed in a motorbike accident in the Scottish Borders last year.

On Sunday, his former teammates came together for a charity sports day in his memory, with all proceeds going to Jerry’s family.

The cricket team was made up of a selection players Jerry had played with over the years, while the football team featured his teammates from his Sunday night games with the veterans.

The day featured a football match between the two teams, before swapping codes and playing a cricket match.

There was also a penalty shoot-out and single wicket cricket for people not involved in the game.

The football match ended in a dramatic 6-6 draw, before Haydon Bridge Veterans pulled off a surprise to defeat the cricket team at their own game by six runs.

Spectators were also treated to a barbecue in the afternoon, while drinks were served from the club’s cabin.

Organiser Brian Alderson said it was a good day for all the family.

He said: “It went really well - the weather held out for us. It was a good tribute to Jerry.

“All the sport was in good spirits - I think the cricket team went a bit easy on the footballers.

“We had a lot of people turn up and take part in the penalty shoot-out and single wicket cricket.

“It was a really good family day out.”
