Alnmouth set up cup-final clash with Corbridge in July

Alnmouth & Lesbury U13 (121-4) v Blagdon U13 (63-6)

Alnmouth’s youngsters made it to the County Cup final, at Blagdon’s expense, this week.

Batting first, Alnmouth openers Archie Elder and Olly Tulip put on 41 for the first wicket before the dismissal of Elder brought the in-form Joe Tudor to the wicket. He was lucky to survive after being dropped, but went on to retire after a quick 30.

Useful runs were scored in the last six overs by Lukas Robinson, Nick Robertson and Ben Kelly, who all made double figures.

The Blagdon batsmen found scoring quick runs difficult. Alnmouth’s wicket-takers were Tudor (two), Kelly, Robinson, Robertson and Cameron Thorpe, although pick of the bowlers were the wicket-less Tom Harrop and Tulip, who bowled six overs between them for eight runs.
