After last week’s blip, Blyth 1stXI turned it around to land the Northumberland League Premier Division title.

They beat Warkworth by a big margin of 125 runs in their penultimate game of the season.

They got off to a slow start, at 37-2, but 21 from Will Asher and 43 from Andrew Ebdale steadied the ship before Gary Quinn hit a top score of 72, with Surj Singh on 36, and at 245 all out it was a big target for the visitors.

Warkworth made a steady start with openers Stephen Dargue and Scott Gibson both posting 36.

But the rest of the innings crumbled with Singh taking a match-winning 7-16 and they were all out for 120, which meant the Blyth players could take the champagne off ice.
