Thumping win for Ashington second XI

Ashington seconds are third top of the B1 division after completing their fourth win in a row on Saturday when they knocked over Lintz seconds by a huge 187 runs victory margin.

Colliers skipper Martin Thewlis continued his fine rich vein of form, following on from his 70 against Ponteland the previous week, by hitting a top scoring 79.

Rory Smith (33 not out), Michael Levison (27), Matty Collins (25), Josh Robinson (23) and Matty Potts (21) all added valuable contributions as the home side closed on 260-7 from their 45 overs allocation.

Joe Bainbridge struck 24 for Lintz but they capitulated to an all out total of 79 as Graham Whitworth led the way for Ashington with 6-30 from nine overs. James Richards (2-25) and Alex Storey (1-7) took the other wickets to fall.
