More than 150 10 and 11-year old boys and girls from schools involved in the ECB Chance to Shine grassroots cricket project took part in five matches each.

King Edward's Primary School were pipped by Ravenswood School in the final - but both schools go through to the county decider.

Former Tynemouth player Richard Coughtrie, now on Durham's books, presented the trophies and certificates.

Tynemouth CC are holding two summer cricket coaching camps for youngsters at their Preston Avenue ground, the first between July 23 and 27 and the second from August 13 to 17.
