CORBRIDGE'S clean sweep in Division One of the Northumberland Cricket League was achieved on Saturday.
The champions won every game this year to finish more than 100 points better off than their nearest rivals, ending off a year to remember by defeating hosts Monkseaton by 13 runs on the final day of the season.
They will look forward to recommencing rivalries with Tyne Valley neighbours Stocksfield who finished fifht in the Premier Division as they ended with a success over Ashington Rugby, while Kirkley managed to survive the drop by the narrowest of margins despite losing to Blue Flames.

This week in... 1949Friday, December 9, 1949...
A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
