Blyth seconds suffer eight-wicket defeat

Blyth second team were looking to kick on from the previous week’s good win at Stobswood, however, they went down to an eight-wicket defeat at Corbridge.

With late cry-offs in the first team the side was decimated.

However, Darren Carr continued his good form from the previous week and they were going along at a good rate until the opening bowlers were taken off.

Although Davison had taken two early wickets, the batsmen were on top.

But Craigie and Chris Jowsey came on and turned the game around.

Carr went for 32. Carrigan, who also continued in fine form, scored an excellent 43 and James Stewart chipped in with 14 as they were all out for 124.

Jowsey and Cragie took four wickets each.

Walker and Stephenson opened the batting for the visitors and were both lucky to stay in.

Walker was dropped early on and both survived good lbw shouts.

With the Blyth skipper making bowling changes, wickets still never came.

However, Carr did make a breakthrough when he had Walker caught for 35. Young Jonny Routledge then trapped Stephenson lbw for 26.

But Maude and Brown saw Corbridge home with no further loss.

Blyth 4 points

Corbridge 30 points

Blyth seconds end the season on Saturday with a short trip to Cramlington to play their seconds with a 1.30pm start.
