Help for Heroes charity match to be rearranged

A new date is to be arranged for a cricket match between Ashington and Bomarsund with the proceeds being donated to the Help for Heroes.

The game was originally scheduled to take place last Sunday at Langwell Crescent but was postponed after Ashington’s first XI had reached the final of the Bobby Smithson Northumberland County Cup.

A spokesperson said: “It was a shame we had to call the game off given all the publicity we had received, but Ashington only reached the final after victory over Tynedale on Friday night.

“We will inform supporters once a new date has been finalised.”
