Young Seasiders do the club proud with ECB display

Alnmouth & Lesbury U13s took part in the regional finals of the national ECB club championship last week.

Having won the Northumberland competition, they saw off the Durham champions in the semi-finals but were then beaten by the Yorkshire champions in the final.

In the semi-final, they came up against Tudhoe and restricted the Durham outfit to 62-3 from their 20 overs.

Alnmouth knocked off the runs inside 13 overs for the loss of one wicket.

This victory pitched them against Yorkshire champs, West Bretton.

Batting first, Alnmouth scored 84-4. In reply, West Bretton were under pressure at 33-3 but an unbeaten partnership of 53 secured victory, taking the side through to the national finals.

The Alnmouth lads did their club proud and have had a great season. They were unbeaten in Northumberland and on their half-term tour to York.
