Local lad Finn Lonnberg produced a superb match winning bowling performance on Saturday, recording his best ever NEPL figures of 6-14 as the Seasiders continued their superb form to remain third in the table.

The home side were struggling at 30-2, but Matty Brown (84) and Mike Jones put on a 95 partnership, allowing his skipper to make an early declaration.

Lonnberg then made the difference, bowling with great accuracy throughout his nine over spell and routing the Whitburn side. His 6-14 is his best ever return for Tynemouth and on the day he was just too good for a Whitburn side who could only muster 45.
