Tynemouth 2s win vital game against Boldon CC

Tynemouth beat Boldon by 6 wickets

Tynemouth Second Team headed for a bottom of the table clash with Boldon CC and secured a much needed win! Skipper Graeme Hallam won the toss and elected to bowl backing his side to chase down a total with possibly the strongest side he has been able to field this season so far. Tynemouth got off to a disastrous start when main strike bowler Josh Koen had a back spasm only 3 balls into his spell. Whether it was a cunning ploy or not, his replacement Richard Hay struck immediately and had Forster caught by Ben Richardson at first slip for 7. After his one over of success Hay was ruthlessly removed from the attack! Carr and Gourley took up the challenge and both bowled very impressive spells, often beating the bat and without any luck whatsoever. When Carr did bowl Boldon CC captain Lamb for 10, Tynemouth were in control with Boldon CC on 23-2. However the back-up bowling was once again, wayward, and the 3rd wicket partnership for Boldon yielded 96 runs in a very short space of time. Lonnberg bowling his off spin again offered some control but Boldon declared after 55 overs on 226 for 6.

In reply Tynemouth started their innings like they did in the first innings, disastrously! After openers Lion and McDine went cheaply, Richardson began a spirited, if rather short, fightback and fell for 20 leaving Tynemouth reeling at 44 for 3. However Hallam at 4 and Lonnberg at 5 decided attack was the best form of defence and set about the Boldon CC bowlers and put some pressure back on the home side. Lonnberg , in particular, took advantage of some generous fielding from the home side and cashed in with a very valuable 71 runs before falling LBW to Groombridge. Hallam and Lonnberg had put on 175 for the 4th wicket. Hallam went on to see the Tynemouth CC home and finished on 121 not out, his innings included 17 fours and two sixes. The result sees Tynemouth jump up to 6th place in the NEPL Division 2 table.
