Wylam rejoin the chasing pack

WYLAM fired their way back into contention in the West Tyne Cricket League title.

Maximum points in their narrow nine run victory over rivals Hexham Leazes moved them up to second spot and just two points off leaders Haltwhistle.

But they will have their work cut out to overhaul the current frontrunners, Haltwhistle maintaining their excellent run by narrowly edging out title chasing Benwell Hill III.

Haydon Bridge slipped up by going down without a trace at Stocksfield II, while Matfen Hall heaped more pressure on Prudhoe at the bottom of the table.

Newton continue to lead the way in Division Two, their success over Humshaugh II keeping runners-up Mitford II, who beat Stocksfield IV at the weekend, two points adrift.

Third-placed Wylam II picked up the points over Hexham Leazes II, but Wark fell to Stocksfield III and Belsay lost at Haltwhistle II.

*Detailed report of the West Tyne Cricket League will appear in this week's Hexham Courant.
