New format for cricket game

A NEW form of cricket is being brought to the borough this weekend.

Last Man Stands (LMS) will be held at Tynemouth Cricket Club on Sunday at 10.30am with the help of Durham CCC players.

Two teams will play the global eight-a-side game.

Supported by the England and Wales Cricket Board, Northumberland Cricket Board and North Tyneside Council, the game will be contested between the ‘Parents of Tynemouth’ and the ‘Vikings CC’.
