THE North-East Mid-Week Cricket League’s showpiece Sadler Brown Cup final at Swalwell on Sunday saw King’s School Old Boys lose out.

Beamish and East Stanley asked King’s to bat on a green wicket and had them struggling all the way.

Only man of the match Tony Lion with 52 offered any real resistance.

King’s were dismissed for 93 in 25 overs.

The Beamish reply saw a typical swashbuckling innings from skipper Ryan McVittie with his 27 before he was caught by Dickenson off Johnson.

Paul Lumley (20) and Tim Hughes (36) kept up the momentum as Beamish won by nine wickets.

Alec Dodds presented the awards on behalf of the sponsor Sadler Brown.

In the league, with one week of rearranged fixtures remaining, Adders have been confirmed as league champions.
