Weekend Review - 8-9 June : West Tyne 3s fly the flag again as 1s and 2s continue losing run

Weekend Review - 8-9 June : West Tyne 3s fly the flag again as 1s and 2s continue losing run

10 Jun 2024

It was another disappointing weekend for our Senior teams, as only the West Tyne 3s ran out winners against local rivals South North, the 1s lost at home to Sunderland, the 2s lost away to Sacriston. Sunday wasn't much better as the 1s lost their ECB National Club Championship game at Wakefield Thornes and the Sunday NEPL 3s lost at home to Philadelphia. Read on for the gory details...


NEPL Premier League - 1st v Sunderland (h) - lost by 6 wickets - Match Report from Phil Haves


With Pete away at Schoey’s wedding Max took the reigns for the visit of Sunderland with a team that included Adam, Ben & Rohaan who replaced Pete, Haydon on Durham duty & the injured Rory. Having won the toss the visitors asked us to have first knock on what looked a good wicket. Adam & Ben opened up with the latter falling cheaply LBW for 5 with the total on 8. Adam & Yash then batted sensibly building a useful partnership that steadily increased in pace & we reached lunch on 88/1. The partnership continued to flourish after lunch as Adam reached a well deserved half century & Yash followed suit  before, with the partnership on 140, Adam was dismissed for 68. Unfortunately we did not capitalise on our good position as we lost 4 wickets for 26 runs as Yash was left at the non strikers end watching. Dan did however help Yash through to his 4th century of the season in all competitions as they added 37 & after Dan & Max were dismissed in successive deliveries Yash added a further 16 runs to finish on a magnificent 130 not out as our innings closed on 227/8.


Having conceded a boundary from his second ball Callum made the important early breakthrough trapping Shurben LBW  in the first over. At the other end Luke also claimed a wicket in his first over & when he also dismissed Allen the visitors appeared in trouble at 24/3. Then, having received a controversial decision go in his favour, Drissell together with skipper Youlden found runs easy to come by as they added 129 to put the visitors in a commanding position before a run out decision was given in our favour following a direct hit by Max. Drissell duly reached his century & an unbeaten 52 ball half century by Applegarth consigned us to a 6 wicket defeat with 10 overs remaining.


Next Saturday we visit Felling in a bid to stop the worrying run of defeats that have left us second from bottom of the division.


1st NEPL Scorecard v Sunderland (h)


NEPL Premier League - 2nd v Sacriston (a) - lost by 7 wickets


For the second week running the 2s batted first and fluffed their lines, this week being skittled for only 100 in the 38th over. Top scorer was Joe Fletcher with 22, next best was Rashan Hameed 18.


Sacriston made short work of the Hill's total knocking off our score for loss of only 3 wickets inside 24 overs. Jake Robson taking 2 wickets and the returning Prahalad Nadella the other. All in all another bad day in the office, and hopefully something we can turn around next weekend at home to Felling.

West Tyne League - 3rd v South North (a) - lost by 7 wickets - Match Report from Chris Pounder


The West Tyne 3’s made it three wins in a row at the weekend beating South North by 7 wickets at Belsay.


After winning the toss and fielding first the hill would restrict the hosts to 107 with Ayush Chakraborty 4/26 and Michael MacLauchlan 3/24 the pick of the bowlers.


In reply the hill lost Liam Hynd early but a partnership off 77 for the 2nd between Davey Ladd and Zain Ahmad (44) wicket would see the hill close in on victory.


A partnership of 20 between Davey and Michael MacLauchlan would see Davey out just 5 runs short of 50 however Michael (15 N/O) would see the hill over the line in the 20th over.

NEPL Sunday First Division - 3rd v Philadelphia (h)- Lost by 13 runs


Skipper Matty Hynd lost the toss, and the visitors chose to bat, scoring 178 for 5 in 40 overs. Gabriel Mellor the pick of the bowlers taking 3 late wickets for just 14 runs off 5 overs.  Aaron Amstrong and Darshan Tharanga the other wicket takers.


Father and Son Matty and Liam Hynd opened the batting for the  Hill, but it was a short stay for Matty who fell 2nd ball, however wicket keeper / batsman Liam (a chip of the old block) did the family proud with his top senior score of 38, he put on 71 for the 2nd wicket, assited by top scorer Sarwar Kabir (46), next best was Zain Ahmed (42) who supported Sarwar in a half century 4th wicket partnership. However we continued to lose wickets regularly, and we eventually finished 13 runs short at 165 for 9 in 40 overs.


Sunday NEPL 3rd XI scorecard v Philadelphia (h)


ECB National Knockout Championship v  Wakefield Thornes (a) - lost by 83 runs


Our run in the the ECB Knockout Cup came to an end at Wakefield Thornes on Sunday. Despite being a few senior players short, we bowled well taking all 10 wickets as the hosts posted 219 in 39 overs. Our chase started slowly, as we lost Arun Phogat and Adam Heather for 35 runs, however the next two wickets were crucial as Yash was adjudged caught behind for 21 and Haydon adjudged run out for 25. Despite a battling 35 from Joe Anderson and 16 for Max, we finished 136 all out in the 34th over.
