Vital win for Bomarsund seconds against Blyth

Graham Pattinson struck his second successive half-century in two games as Bomarsund seconds secured an important win over Blyth for their second win of the season at the Welfare.

The visitors elected to put Bomar into bat and from their 40 overs they managed to make 195-6 with four batsmen managing to make sufficient innings.

Pattinson lead the way with his 60, Gary Bell (42), Dan Robinson (35) and Tom More (25) all managed to contribute to give them a chance of putting breathing space between them and the bottom of the league.

In reply, Blyth fell 38 runs short of the target as they never really looked like getting near with only one batsman managing to make an influence over 30.

Robinson led the way with three of the eight wickets taken as he finished with figures of 3-43 from his ten overs.

Bell took 2-30, More 1-14, Brent Mordey 1-20 and Adam Gardiner 1-22 as the hosts recorded, what was, a much needed league victory.

Bomarsund 29 points

Blyth 7 points

The disappointment of Thursday evening’s cup exit didn’t appear to have affected Bomar that much, as they are now 49 points ahead of bottom of the league.

The seconds now face the trip to Stobswood Welfare, who knocked them out of the Enid Farmer Cup, on Saturday, June 20, with a win taking them possibly up to eighth.
