Dean Bailey hit a half-century before his compulsory retirement, and with Jordan Baines making 33 Blaydon had put the result beyond doubt by the interval with a score of 137-4.

WINS for both Washington Raiders and Boldon CA Yellow marked them out as the teams most likely to succeed in the 3D Durham Coast Under-15 League championship stakes as the season nears its climax.

Both sides remain unbeaten heading into the final few fixtures. …
