With the weather being the winner in the fourth round of fixtures in the Northumberland and Tyneside Cricket League, last weekend saw teams around the region return to action.

In Division One, Tynedale sealed a convincing 127 run victory away at Seaton Burn to help them earn their second win of the season.

The travelling side, who had hit a score of 198/8 from their 45 overs on Saturday afternoon, were simply too strong for their opposition who could only respond with a score of 71 all out.

Matthew Scott starred for Tynedale and took five wickets for just 25 runs, while Jamie Crichton top scored for the team with a knock of 40 not out.

Stocksfield meanwhile suffered their third defeat of the season after Annfield Plain defeated them by 34 runs.

The visitors, who elected to field first, were set 184 to win the match but could only respond with a score of 149 all out, despite a 51 from Adrian Marrison.

Ponteland continued their strong start in Division Two with a 34 run home win over Blue Flames to go top of the league.

A 43 from Stuart Taylor and a 38 from John Lumb helped the hosts to a score of 180 all out, with the visiting side only able to score 146 in response.

In Division Three, Allendale lost out to Alnmouth & Lesbury 2nds, with their opposition only losing one wicket as they comfortably chased down their run target.

Another team to suffer defeat was Stocksfield 2nds, although they were involved in a much closer game against GEMS.

A low scoring match saw the visiting team score 48 all out, but Stocksfield could only manage a response of 45 meaning GEMS claimed a narrow win, while Berwick secured a 28 run win over Corbridge also in Division Three.

Division Four saw Tynedale 2nds easily beat Seaton Burn 2nds by 139 runs with Craig Barber scoring 118 not out, while Ponteland 2nds lost their match against Newcastle City 2nds by 109 runs.

In Division Five South, Riding Mill defeated Annfield Plain 2nds by 82 runs while both Cobridge 2nds and Stocksfield 3rds were victorious last weekend in Division Six South.
