Aycliffe first team had a frustrating day away at Marske as the weather forced the game to be abandoned after tea and recorded as a draw. Jack Slatcher (sponsored by Dean & Tina Greaves) was given the man of the match award for a gutsy unbeaten 45 from 98 balls faced and his innings included four boundaries.
