It's still on today - the day after the cricket has finished.

BrianT

Pleased for Steve Harmison and I, for one, will support his benefit year, (if I'm spared).

BrianT

It's been left on lads!

Ian17

Looks like it!

auldtimer

Has Yvette forgot to turn this off?

keenasmustard

Got home from work to see we've won. It's been a blast. Good luck Yvette and hopefully see (or more accurately read) the rest of you here next season.

CollingwoodFTM

Well done lads, 5 wins and a rain stolen draw in the last 6. Slatters peeps.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Bye everyone and hope to have cyber interactions with you all again next season.

daleslass

Stan Drop thank you. Didn't make it down today - back ache.

Stan Drop

Woo Hoo! That one's for Yvette! Pity the 20 points doesn't lift us a place though. Good luck for the rest of your career Yvette and maybe see you at the Riverside from time to time! Bye lads (and daleslass) see yo next year! Keep well!

goonernortheast

Stan Drop

Fat lady is gargling in the back room!

marchy22

If this is the end then id like to say I have thoroughly enjoyed chatting with each and everyone of yous and summers will both be the same without lmc

brandonia

Does anyone know where 'viaSMS' lives? I'd like to take him/her for a drink........

Frankjw

Glad we do not need 200, knew there would be 1 or 2 'Marchy' moments before we finished. Cheers all till 2013

2XI

2XI: Durham 101-7...

5:12pm

bryn

marchy22

It will be over in 5 mins now

Stan Drop

Single figures now. Great to have Colly and Colonel at the crease at the end!

Ian17

We should get some LMC badges to wear, so people can recognise each other at the ground...

Tynevalleyblackcat

So this could be it then? I would just like to say if it is then I know where you all live and I will track you down one by one and......sorry I meant to say, have a nice life everyone!!

Wicket...

Durham 150-5 as Richardson is out lbw on 58. Just 15 runs needed for the win!

5:06pm

bryn

Sum ov tha spellins on ere arr atroshush!

maidenover

So Evette where are you going and best wishes for the future

brandonia

I'd also like to add that Marty posted the following link on his Twitter - http://news.bbc.co.uk/newswatch/ukfs/hi/feedback/default.stm - which is a feedback page for the BBC, I've wrote to them and would urge others to do the same if you want cricket commentary next season.

Ian17

Yes, likewise - have a good few months everyone, and hopefully see/chat with you all in 2013!

brandonia

Yeah I'd also like to say have a good winter folks, hopefully we'll have an LMC to come to next season. Yvette, all the best with whatever you do in the future. It's been emotional!

marchy22

If you did sorry

marchy22

Will you be following the team next year on lmc yvette? Would be great off you did

Update

Just 17 reuns required for the win here. I'll take this time to say thanks for getting involved and supporting the boys.

4:57pm

marchy22

The team have played like champions second half of the season. Would never have thought we would be safe with one game to go

keenasmustard

Now we look forward to November when the fixtures for next season are released. We're going to be playing the Yorkies again and it will be good to play Derbyshire. Not played them in the CC for a while.

CollingwoodFTM

I hope everyone winters well. Thanks to Yvette for looking after us all. I hope we will all be in this or a similar form. Well done to Colly and the lads for turning the season around.

brandonia

Aye Marchy, we need to sign him up. Would be criminal to let a talent like him go. I must add too that I'm almost tempted to pray for rain just so we can extend the season into tomorrow! Has any game at Durham actually gone into a fourth day this year - without rain??

2XI

2XI: Durham 64-4 after 25 overs...

4:49pm

Noz

2nd XI were 56-3 off 20 chasing 191 to win according to tannoy at ground

marchy22

Well batted Richardson. Deserves to start next season at number 3 if we cam get him to sign a new contract

Durham four down

Benks is bowled by Panesar for 11. Durham 138-4, 27 required.

4:47pm

Richardson 50

Fifty for Michael Richardson! Durham need 27 to win.

4:46pm

bryn

Unless its ridgeley out of lmc jail under a different alias!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Never depressing to win.

keenasmustard

Aye it's depressing that this season for us will be over in about half an hour.

brandonia

International Cricket Captain's season never ends!!

bryn

im still in shock at being cyber stalked by the dog sitter!

2XI

2XI: Last news was 36-3...

4:36pm

Latest

Durham 128-3...37 required

4:36pm

marchy22

Any update on the 2nds?

Stan Drop

I've got my set of OWZAT! dice to while away the long winter evenings!

brandonia

He's a canny turn, might try and get him at Brandon. Aye TVBC, I'm bringing a bottle of White Lightning in.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Glamorgan need 61 to confirm Derbyshires and Yorkshires promotion.

marchy22

Collingwood has said we will be looking to bring in a couple of players this off season

Tynevalleyblackcat

We can't afford him Marchy. We have been docked points as it is!!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Only the younger ones go to the chippy on the last day Brandonia. The older ones try and get into the pub for a swift half of shandy!!

marchy22

Somerset are leading the chase apparently. Would you like to see him at Durham?

keenasmustard

Lol, I've just had to check cricinfo to see that we are still playing.

brandonia

Where's Hamilton-Brown off to? I'm going to bring Subbuteo in tomorrow like. Plus it's Friday so we should go to the chippy. Poolynorm should get them in too considering he's team captain.

bryn

Woaaaaahhh!

the dog sitter

Hello all . . my first time posting on lmc is to say thanks to you all for keeping me amused whilst following DCCC. I very much hope to be able to cyber stalk you all next year via this medium! Good luck to Yvette & congratulations on keeping them all in check.

IAIN6W

Cream cakes on the last day.....reminds me of the last day of school,when we brought in board games on the last day! Are the lads playing Connect 4 in the dressing room!!?? Lets hope we can bring this good run of form into next season. All the best to everyone & thanks for keeping me informed throughout the season. Cheers.

Cakes

Anyone that knows me knows that the cakes wouldn't make it into the office...yum!

4:20pm

keenasmustard

Iceland now sell Greggs products. Cheaper too. We get a load in every time we shop there.

marchy22

Hamilton brown has been allowed to leave surrey in the middle of his contract

bryn

aye true say,just not sure who invented it...possibly greggs!

Tynevalleyblackcat

But you get loads back over the course of the year Bryn. Lots of people in our office now get a mixture of cakes and pasties from Greggs.

keenasmustard

We used to buy cream cakes on our own birthday in our office. Then it somehow developed into bacon sarnies.

bryn

That cream cake law always amuses me,you even have to do it on YOUR birthday!

Tynevalleyblackcat

What score are the 2nd's chasing?

2XI latest

2XI: Durham 16-2 after 8 overs with Smith and Singh the men out.

4:00pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

Do you have to buy the cream cakes on your last day Yvette? That's the format here.

Response to keenasmustard

My last day is tomorrow!

3:59pm

Latest

We're back on here - Durham 101-3, 64 required, 34 overs left.

3:58pm

BrianT

Just met someone who was talking to Burridge, the former fast bowler. Urging everyone to get down to Whitburn on Sunday for the cup final v South Shields. Could be an interesting journey through GNR traffic. Raining again as they come out.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Kent have all but blown their promotion chances so it will be Derbyshire and Yorkshire joining us at the top table next season.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Should get this done and dusted tonight?

bryn

poolienorms leaving it late!

keenasmustard

Yvette when is your final day at the club?

BrianT

Covers off here. And the new catchphrase for the old timers is "winter well" or as my nana used to say "see you next year, if I'm spared.

keenasmustard

Could still be over tonight then.

Update

We'll restart here at 4pm!

3:46pm

keenasmustard

Yes Ian. That might have washed had he done it only the once but he did it again when he got to 100. He could be a good laugh at times but on other occasions quite childish *cough* Tiger Moth *cough*

Update

Still raining here...

3:33pm

Ian17

Oh yeah, I'd forgotten about that... he claimed it was aimed at a mate of his that he'd had a bet with or something, didn't he?

keenasmustard

We might as well have had Johnny Morris. At least he wouldn't have stuck two fingers up at the crowd when he reached three figures.

Ian17

And he'd have had all the money from presenting 'Animal Magic' on telly... on hang on, that was Johnny Morris, wasn't it? ;-)

keenasmustard

I remember John Morris getting a benefit and he'd only been at the club for about 4 years.

Mackem_Dave

Sorry I also need to rant. I find it unbelievable that the club has awarded a benefit year to Steve Harmison. Will he still have it if he is out on loan next year? Surely benefits should only be for county pros like Neil Killeen?

Mackem_Dave

Thank you Yvette for your patience and your ability to remain cheerful and sane during the difficult first half of the season.

Ian17

Yeah, sounds about right - let's hope it clears before long! In the meantime, I might take tea too...!

Stan Drop

BBC calls it "light rain, clearing later in the evening. Looks OK for tomorrow so we may just have to be a bit patient. 64 runs needed so about 16 overs should do it, say about an hour and ten minutes?

Tea

Tea will be taken at 2.40pm

2:37pm

longers

Is it raining heavy? Will we get a result today?

2XI

2XI: Lancashire 149-6 off 32 overs, two wickets for Pringle and one for Weighell

2:31pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

What's with all the posts about blankets and curtains? Next person will be carpeted.

marchy22

Good knock from stokes

Ian17

I'm still here but was dragged away from my computer by my boss to do some work - how unreasonable...! Just come back to a wicket and a rain interruption - not ideal! Is it likely to blow over?

bryn

Wish id brought a blanket now!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Where is everybody? Looks like its me and you Yvette bringing down the curtain on the LMC!!

Rain...

And rain interrupts play...

2:23pm

Wicket...

Stokes is caught off Panesar for 45. Durham 101-3, requiring 64 to win!

2:21pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

100 up

Partnership 50

Fifty partnership for Richo and Stokes. Durham 84-2, 81 runs required.

2:07pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

50 partnership. Ticking along nicely now.

Tynevalleyblackcat

100 more

2XI

2XI: Lancashire 76-3 as Paul Coughlin picks up two wickets!

1:43pm

Latest

Durham 58-2 with 107 runs required, Stokes 19* and Richardson 12*.

1:43pm

brandonia

I'll have to copy and paste all the icons though to make it more realistic. Be the worst thing Durham ever do if they get rid of the LMC...... Worse than not signing an overseas batsman! Yvette, can you confirm or deny that the LMC contributes to the wage bill? Thus meaning it has to be scrapped to free-up funds so we don't get a further ECB penalty?!!

Tynevalleyblackcat

We will have to resort to the SMB Brandonia with sensible cricketing comments interspersed with references to 'SEB' and messages telling Toon Toon to 'go away'.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Just keep plugging away lads.

Wicket....

Stoneman is bowled by Hatchett for 26. Durham 34-2.

1:20pm

Update

Durham 34-1 as the continue after lunch - 131 runs required for the win!

1:18pm

brandonia

Is there really going to be no LMC next year??

Stan Drop

Pretty useful looking 2nd XI!

bryn

Keenas i hope your right,you guys are my extended family! *sniffs*

keenasmustard

bryn it's not the last ever LMC. I was told by someone at last night's meeting that it will continue.

2XI latest

2XI: Claydon strikes in the first over! Lancashire 3-1.

12:37pm

2XI

2XI: Durham lost the toss and will bowl. Team: Singh, Smith, Muchall (c), Clark, Breese, Pringle, Arshad, Coughlin, Weighell, Claydon, Brathwaite

12:35pm

bryn

As its the last ever lmc will poolienorm put in a cameo appearance?

Lunch

Lunch here at Emirates Durham - we're 26-1, trailing by 139.

12:31pm

keenasmustard

3000 FC runs for Rocky.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Just keep scoring and we should be fine here.

Stan Drop

dot,four, dot, foru, dot,four! way to go Rocky!

Wicket...

Durham 17-1 after Jennings is caught off Hatchett for 1.

12:16pm

Noz

Gonna head down to the ground for afternoon session

keenasmustard

Is Stoneman batting with a runner in the 2nd inns?

Durham Second Innings

Durham's second innings begins - 165 is the target!

12:02pm

Noz

As you say,it bodes well for next season

myboyharry

Rushworth has 38 first class wickets this season at an average of just 16.36. A superb effort.

myboyharry

I note that if we win this game there is a possibility of ending up just 1 win from second spot. That might be a bit contrived but it shows you what sort of a job has been done by Collingwood in the second half of the season. Augurs well hopefully for 2013.

Noz

Excellent AGAIN Rushy

Tynevalleyblackcat

Happy with that and well done Rushy. Target is 165.

Five -fer Rushy!

That's five for Rushworth! Panesar is caught on 1. Durham need 165 for the win!

11:52am

keenasmustard

I tried living on the edge but kept falling off when I rolled over in my sleep.

bryn

Mbh,if your not your taking up too much room!

myboyharry

Bryn, you obviously live on the edge.

bryn

thats how i roll :-)

bryn

quite barmy out im gonna risk not taking a blanket after all!

myboyharry

Cheers. Should hopefully knock the runs off just prior to tea perhaps.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Lunch 12:30 and Tea at 3:10 Paul.

myboyharry

What are the hours of play today Yvette. Lost track with the 10.30am starts?

Noz

*Monty

Noz

With Monthy batting/running there is a fair chance keenasmustard :)

Tynevalleyblackcat

Good stuff. Lead is currently 156. Lets hope we get the last one cheaply.

keenasmustard

Nine down. Start the car.

Response to myboyharry

Yes, we'll still take them.

11:36am

Wicket!

Magoffin is caught off Chris Rushworth for 10. Sussex 170-9!

11:36am

myboyharry

Noz, its been dreadful. Local club cricket has of course also suffered.

Tynevalleyblackcat

I reiterate the comments of others. I have enjoyed the chat over the last few seasons and you will be sadly missed Yvette. All the best for the future.

Noz

myboyharry - just a shame so much has been lost to the weather

marchy22

Need to break this partnership

myboyharry

Going down after lunch. Looks like the last day of the season today. Its flown by.

myboyharry

Yvette, are the club accepting player of the year votes still?

Ian17

Just echoing others to say thanks for all you've done and to wish you all the best in the future, Yvette. You'll be missed!

Ian17

Fantastic stuff!

Response to Frankjw

Thanks so much for your kind words - they are appreciated.

11:18am

Tynevalleyblackcat

133 for 8. Looking good for a win to end the season in style.

keenasmustard

That's the big one. Hopefully wont last long now.

Wicket!

A third wicket for Rushy! Sussex 149-8 as Brown is out lbw for 30.

11:17am

foxbat

Onions was my vote

Frankjw

So sorry you are leaving us Yvette. You have been very loyal to Durham and very patient with us, especilly the Cats - whether they are Black or Postman Pat's! Good Luck with your plans for the future. We will miss you.

marchy22

Onions

2XI

2XI: Even better news...the umpires are looking to inspect at 12 with a view to starting at 12.30!

11:13am

2XI SET Final

2XI: Hoping to get started at about 1...we'll keep you posted!

11:10am

Noz

Just what we needed

keenasmustard

Who have people voted as their Player of the Season? My vote went to Onions.

Wicket!

Adkin is out lbw to Rushworth for 6. Sussex 140-7!

11:09am

marchy22

Yes what?

parky

yes!

marchy22

Runs coming fast at the minute

keenasmustard

If we can get Brown out the rest should follow quickly.

marchy22

Wicket please

Ian17

Lol, cheers, Stan...! ;-)

Noz

lol @ stan drop

Noz

Not sure TVBC. A bit of inexperience at the top of our order this game so if they went early, like in 1st innings, it might be tricky

Stan Drop

Ian17 - I remember the summer very well - it was a Thursday ;)

Ian17

Yeah, a £10 increase but including the T20s doesn't sound like a bad deal at all. Then again, I couldn't get to any of the T20 games this season...! I'd rather be chasing 150 than 200...

keenasmustard

I think anything over 200 would be tricky.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Would people be confident chasing 200 here?

foxbat

All over by tea is my prediction. Yvette is there any word on work being done to the ground in the off season?

Noz

Including T20 is a positive move so don't the mind the extra tenner. thanks mate

BrianT

£10 increase. Fantastic value. Includes T20 matches though according to radio..

Noz

How much next season keenasmustard?

Noz

Brown played well first innings so we need that wicket now

Tynevalleyblackcat

Great start. Sussex effectively 97 for 6.

Noz

Get in Stokesy!!

Wicket!

Sussex 113-6 as Wells is caught behind off Stokes for 51.

10:39am

Bowling update

Graham Onions takes the ball at the Lumley End. Sussex 112-5.

10:33am

Day three

Play begins on day three! Sussex resume on 112-5, Ben Stokes bowls the first over.

10:31am

keenasmustard

I see membership is going up next year.

BrianT

Off out now. Could be your last day on LMC Yvette. Hope it's a happy one and good luck for the future.

Ian17

* Which

Ian17

Whic summer was that? I must have missed it... ;-)

Tynevalleyblackcat

Heater was on in the car this morning for the first time since last winter. Summer is officially over :(

BrianT

4 hours, if you can find a working machine.

Day three

Looks like we'll be starting on time at 10.30, but bring jumpers, blankets and whatever else you can fit in your bag...it's chilly!

9:01am

Have your say
