Firsts success in Twenty20

Newcastle Firsts had a resounding five wicket win against Tynemouth in the penultimate T20 League game.

Tynemouth batted first and after a good start were reduced to 139 for 9, thanks to some excellent bowling by Mark Cryer (4-15) and outstanding catching.

In reply, we lost two early wickets but Mike Richardson (35) and Rishabh Shah (49) restored the balance before skipper Niall Penfold smashed 33 from 12 deliveries.

All eyes now on the final T20 League match at South Shields on Friday.
