10th May 2018

A mix of old & young have taken the field on the last two Tuesdays as SN entered the NE Midweek League, Division 4, for the first time. Two wins have resulted from the 14 x 8 ball over a side games.


SNCC 129- 6  ( Bobby Green 41 , Ben Sidney Wilmot 32, David Harbottle 18, James Brown 17)

South Shields Bangladeshi 99-8 ( David Parker 4-24, Owen Hollins 2, Cam Skinner 1, David Harbottle 1)


After Captain Tom Seymour's first ball caught behind, Bobby Green & James Brown prospered. Gently run singles were mixed with well struck boundaries against very enthusiastic opponents. Ben Sidney Wilmot continued the fast scoring & David Harbottle concluded with some powerful strokes.


SSB were always slightly behind the rate as Skinner, Hollins, Seymour & David Harbottle wheeled away. Two wickets for Super O led to the introduction of David Parker's leg breaks which bamboozled, taking 4-24, two in two at one point.


SNCC 110-4 ( Bobby Green 42*, James Brown 17, Tom Seymour, Tris Meears White, Cam Skinner in the teens)

EAGA Old Boys 86-8 ( Tom Seymour 5-12, Mikey Craigs 2, one run out)


A friendly spirited game was preceded by a heavy shower leaving the outfield wet & slow. Good placement & running were a feature of the SN innings in which Bobby Green, strong off his legs & manoeuvring the ball into gaps, carried his bat for 42*. He was ably supported by James Brown, Tris Meears White, Tom Seymour & Cam Skinner. 


Tight early overs from Seymour & Mikey Craigs got EAGA behind the rate which ultimately led to a flurry of wickets as the innings progressed. Tom Seymour finished with a magnificent 5-12 off 4 overs, two for Mikey Craigs & a run out. Man of the match Bobby Green.


The next game is against Bel Monte CC (Belmont Community Centre) at home week commencing 14th May
