In a topsy turvy match on Sunday sponsored by The Lindisfarne Oyster Company the Borderers defeated Bamburgh by 3 wickets with 10 balls to spare in a high scoring match.

Opting to bat first the seasiders were soon in trouble losing both openers in 13 balls with the total on only 4.

Bamburgh recovered from this early set back and scoring at regular intervals finishing their innings on a respectable 171 for 9 off their 35 overs. James Crooks top scoring with a fine 59 off 43 balls ably assisted by guest Dale Gibson with 26. Hugh Murphy with 3 for 28 and skipper James Thompson the pick of the bowling.

When the Borderers batted they slumped to 127 for 7 in the 28th over with opener Richard Thomson top scoring with a patient 31, however if Bamburgh thought the game was over they were in for a rude awakening with Hugh Murphy and Ian Purvis launching a savage attack on the home bowling plundering 47 runs in 5 overs to win the game for the Borderers, Murphy unbeaten on 23 and Purvis 26
