Article excerpt

A CLUB record batting performance for Boldon CA was the feature of the firstround William Orton Cup ties. Silksworth were the side to feel the full force of the Boldon batting attack as Stuart Smith and Jamie Carroll notched up a record opening stand of 224.

Smith played the leading role as he hammered 116, falling just before the closure of the innings on 228-1. His century included 15 fours and four sixes, with Carroll carrying his bat for an unbeaten 59.

Michael Purvis then completed the agony for the visitors by picking up 4-4 as Silksworth crumbled for just 56.

Their success at Easington was built on the back of an excellent half-century from Connor Pearson, who retired with 50. Ryhope closed on 94-1. Easington, who also won their opening fixture, were never in the hunt this time, losing wickets regularly.

When Chris Nutman grabbed three wickets for just 13 runs, the hosts folded to 64 all out to go down by 30 runs. …
