West Tyne title up for grabs
Published at 10:20, Friday, 13 September 2013
IF the rain doesn't spoil the day, the West Tyne Cricket League will draw to a dramatic close tomorrow.
Main rivals Haydon Bridge and Haltwhistle are fighting it out for the championship, the former enjoying a three point advantage going into the last day of the season.
A victory of any margin in their home game with ninth placed Humshaugh would see Haydon Bridge reclaim the title they won in 2011.
Haltwhistle, meanwhile, remain in the hunt for their first crown since 2009 and are hoping things go their way when they visit third bottom Stamfordham.
To stand any chance of surviving the drop, South Northumberland III, who are 11 points adrift, need success when they entertain third placed Wylam.
Second bottom Prudhoe need anything from their home game with Benwell Hill III to secure their Division One status.
Allendale finish their season by welcoming Matfen Hall to Riding Haughs, while Stocksfield II entertain Hexham Leazes.
In the only outstanding Division Two game, Wark host Humshaugh II.

THREE watercolour paintings donated by Queen Mary were auctioned off to raise money for a new Darby and Joan club in Hexham.
A site had already been bought, but a further £6,000 was needed to run the club for the elderly.
The auction, opened by Viscountess Allendale, saw the paintings raise over £8 for the fund.
