Although the wet weather wiped out all but one game in Division One of the Northumberland and Tyneside Cricket League last weekend, the game which was able to take place was a thriller.

Tynedale made it three successive maximum point victories after defeating local rivals Stocksfield by just 24 runs in a high scoring match.

After electing to bat first, a fine opening partnership between captain Thomas Cant and Dan Parker saw the side score 117 before Cant was caught out for 52.

Parker continued his fine start to his innings however and eventually hit a stunning 108.

The opening duo's knocks were also added to by Oliver Fletcher, who hit 70 from just 44 balls and the side eventually set their opponents 278 to win after their 45 overs.

The score, which was the highest set by Tynedale so far this season, proved to just be enough to claim the victory.

Sam Beedle was the star with the bat for Stocksfield and he hit 65 from just 31 balls, with Dan Wylie (37), Adrian Marrison (34) and opener Chris Patterson (31) all also hitting solid scores as they attempted to match their rivals.

However, they fell just short of their target and ended the match 253 all out, giving Tynedale their third 30 point win in a row.

With all of Division Two's games called off due to the weather, Division Three saw Corbridge host league leaders Ashington Rugby, although the travelling team completed a six wicket win.

After earlier setting their opponents 86 to win on Saturday afternoon, Corbridge simply couldn't match the league frontrunners and they sealed a big win to move ahead at the top of the league table.

Riding Mill's match against Whitley Bay was also able to take place in Division Four and the home side walked away with a five wicket win.

Kiel Zurawlew, Lance Mallinson, Matthew Maplesden and Ben Sherrard-Smith all took several wickets as the hosts bowled their opponents out for 90 and the team made no mistakes chasing down their run target, eventually ending the game 91/5.
