The rain finally stopped to allow a rare game of cricket to take place between Tynemouth and Newcastle in the North East Premier League.
Tynemouth batted first, declaring on 211-6. Captain Ben Debnam scored the highest in the game with 70.
Newcastle fought back in their innings, but some impressive bowling from Phil Morse limited their score.
They eventually reached 183-8, meaning a winning draw for Tynemouth.
Tynemouth captain Ben Debnam said: “We batted first, got a good score and then declared. They chased hard though, and made it into a really good game.”
Newcastle bowler Phil Hudson said: “This is only our second league game of the season because of the bad weather.
“It is frustrating as I feel we are a bit undercooked as opposed to Tynemouth who have managed to play more. We showed real spirit though, and we will only get stronger.”
