TYNEMOUTH DRAW WITH DURHAM STARLETS

Tynemouth 188/6, Durham Cricket Academy 148/6.

Tynemouth’s First Team secured a deserved winning draw against the Durham Academy on

Saturday at Preston Avenue in a game that was well contested throughout. On another cold, April

day home skipper Ben Debnam lost the toss and his side were asked to bat first on what looked a

firm but green wicket.

Debnam opened the innings with Graeme Hallam and had to face some quality opening bowling

from Potts and Angus. Potts in particular took the eye bowling accurately and at a handy pace,

beating the bat on many occasions on a wicket that was providing assistance. Hallam went for 5 and

Sam Dinning for 14 before last week’s centurian, Matthew Brown joined his skipper and the

scoreboard began to tick over. However Brown was out just before the lunch break and first session

honours were even at 84/3.

Trevaskus came on to bowl slow left arm however both Debnam and Club Professional Tahir Khan

were growing in confidence until Debnam inexplicably went for a run when there wasn't one and

ran himself out for 48. This was a frustrating end to a determined effort. Khan played nicely and

found a willing partner in Andrew Smith but was stumped by Ashington youngster, Jack McCarthy,

for 52. When the innings closed on 188/6 Smith was not out 29. Potts with 2/36 was the pick of the

bowlers and had little luck whilst Travaskus returned decent figures of 3/45.

With Finn Lonnberg out through injury, Debnam relied on Andrew Smith and David Hymers to

open the attack and both had an early breakthrough raising hopes of a Tynemouth win. However,

Travaskus and Greenwell came together and dug in. Runs came slowly but the home side could not

breakthrough. Debnam used all of his bowlers but the game appeared to be petering out into a draw

when Khan and Dinning eventually made the breakthrough. However, Potts and Steel then counter-

attacked for the visitors. Smith was recalled and he put the breaks on once again and was the pick of

the Tynemouth attack with 3-35 along with Dinning who bowled with pace and promise.

When the umpires called time Steel remained 49 not out in a score of 148-6 this ended an

interesting days cricket. On Saturday Tynemouth are at home again, this time to Felling. The game

starts at 11.45 and spectators are most welcome. Thanks go to our main Sponsor Granite Worktops.
