In reply it didn't tart well with Neil Matthews 5 and Lee Henderson 0 opening the Batting. Michael Robbie add 9 before allowing Luke Richardson to the crease, he batted serbly on his birthday to reach 65 not out at the end of the innings. At the other end, Will Orchin 6, Chris Valance 10, Connor Henderson 0, Anthony Ashman 5, Chris Paton 15, Scott Gillan 0 and Ian Kitching 0. Left us 33 runs short of the Beamish total.
Whilst away at Beamish the seconds faired little better. Losing the toss and Batting first Rainton reached 110 all out. Colin Henderson 28, Tom Rennie 4, Stuart Archbold 24, Manna Seth 0, James Messer 5, Rich Harrison 7, Darren Portrey 10, Graham Avent 5, Robert Kitching 1, Derrick Steinberg 11 and John Murray 0 not out.
After a nice tea (chilli today) beamish batted and we're 70 for 9. However a superb rear guard action by I Dowson 58 not out and young D Brunton 4 not out saw them over the line. Bowling: Darren Portrey 4 for 22, Derrick Steinberg 3 for 22, Richard Harrison 1 for 12, Manna Seth 1 for 32, James Messer 0 for 9 and Tom Rennie 0 for 10.
