Bad start to season

Ulgham I (136 all out) v Bomarsund I (139-4) Northumberland Cricket League, Division One

ULGHAM started off their season with a home defeat.

After being put into bat, they got off to a poor start when openers Colin Tait and Alan Hynd were dismissed after scoring just one run each.

Wahab Barakat and Roy Haygarth (17) got the innings going, but when he looked set to reach his half-century, Barakat was caught on 39.

Adam Tait (14) and Chris Herne (10) were the only other men who made it into double figures as the hosts were all out for just 136.

Bomarsund started well in reply, particularly their captain Haig, however, Ulgham pegged them back a little when David Moore bowled Thornton for 12 and David Charlton had Whiteman stumped by Hynd for 17.

Charlton then trapped Dixon LBW, but the visitors did not panic and Concannon made a useful knock of 20.

He was caught by Barakat off the bowling of Chris Cowe.

Haig reached his half-century and he finished on 54 not out as Bomarsund won by six wickets.
