DCL 1st XI Division 2
Brandon 211-2dec (24 overs)
Langley Park & Bearpark 35 all out.
Some low scores in the Durham league. Some very poor teams looking at the league so far.
Watched a bit of Whitburm 2s this afternoon. They were 8 down chasing 118 when I left. Lugsdon a right handful
Played there as a kid but not been back for a while. You don’t realise how lucky you are as a bairn to be playing somewhere like that
Hetton Lyons declared 280/3
Bowled Newcastle out for 127
Looking at the scores myself I tend to agree - seems like in Brandon’s Division there are three sides who will battle it out for promotion (Brandon, Dawdon & Hylton) and the rest basically making up the numbers. Early days I know, but I expected Ryhope to have done much better.
Lost by 3 bastard runs
LCC seconds won again
Ercc 2 201 for 4
Murton 2 130 ao
We were 202 declared and bowled them out for 60 odd.
Scot Cahill 80
Bowling kamal 7-30

I wish I could mate but finances are a no no. If it was a week later it would have been a no brainer
Cheers for the offer though
Drew with Shields. Shite boring negative cricket from them but they got 3 points or summit so fair play.
Don't be bitter, be better
Just checked the scores. Sunderland a lot more negative batting onto 254 - a totally unrealistic target for a team of Shields' current capabilities. Also if you can't bowl a weak side like that out in 57 overs you don't deserve to win a game of cricket.
I suppose that will change next year won't it? Or at least part of the season?
They reckon it'll be half a season of one day style games (most runs wins) and half a season of the current format (or at least v.similar). Not sure what I think on it, seems to work elsewhere in the country and I'm sure Australian Grade cricket is similar. Either way it'll split opinion with those opposed to change bemoaning the decision of the NEPL (@wicketkeeper ) and those who embrace change looking forward to the new challenges.
Sounds good to me. I always feel it is a shame when you give up quite a lot of time to play on a weekend and not have a pure outcome. I do like the bonus points system mind for wickets and runs.
