Marsden’s match against Ushaw Moor – Cricket

THE region’s club cricket programme was ravaged by the rain on Saturday with not a single league managing to avoid significant disruption.

In the Dukes NEPL only three games started, and even then it was only for a short time, with the match at Tynemouth easily the longest with 34 overs of play. Visitors Hetton Lyons made 104-2 in that time, recovering from 23-2 through an unbroken third wicket stand of 81 between Shaun Birbeck 40no and Paul Riddle 37no .

Stockton were in a bit of trouble at Sunderland, being 43-3 after 14 overs, with Chris Rushworth 2-25 and Kieran Waterson 1-17 causing problems, while at Jesmond Newcastle had reached 49-0 after nine overs against South Shields. Michael Richardson was looking set to tee off yet again, but at least his unbeaten 23 made him easily the first man to reach the 500 league runs milestone for the season. But for OPENer Nick Corby it was a less pleasant experience after he had to retire hurt after taking a painful crack in the ribs.

The Warmseal Durham Senior League was virtually wiped out, the match at Norton, where Horden were the visitors, the only one to start, the home side reaching 53-1 in 16 overs, with John Watson 36 not out. And it was a similar story in the 3D Durham Coast League with Bill Quay and Easington 30-0 making the one forlorn effort to defy the weather.

The Readers Durham County League fared no better, Marsden’s match against Ushaw Moor the only one to see the murky light of day with the home side 38-2 before they, too, surrendered to the elements.
