Tillside crowned Division 2 cricket champions
The local cricket season drew to a close on Saturday with the final games in the Northumberland & Tyneside League.
The only matter to be decided was if Tillside 1sts, who had guaranteed promotion to Division 1 a week earlier, would be crowned Division 2 champions.
And they duly obliged with a last day four wickets away win over Whickham 1sts which meant they topped the table on 497 points, with Ponteland 1sts the runners-up on 448.
Whickham posted 160-8 in their innings with Tillside 161-6 in reply, Joe Bickerton top scoring on 51.
Elsewhere, Berwick 1sts, who were runners-up in Division 3, ended with a 70 runs defeat away to GEMs 1sts in Division 3. The home side were 138 all out with Berwick dismissed for only 68.
Warenford, second in Division 5 North, lost by 76 runs at home to champions Morpeth 2nds. Morpeth were 130 all out with Waren managing only 54 in reply.
