Update

That's it from me today, thanks for joining the LMC. I'll be back tomorrow for the 11am start.

7:08pm

brandonia

Day 1 goes to Durham!

Durham

A good partnership to end the day as well between Stoneman and Smith to solidify our position going into Day Two.

7:06pm

Durham

What a day for Ryan Buckley as he takes 5-86 on his first class debut as we bowled Surrey out for 237 after losing the toss.

7:06pm

BrianT

An excellent effort by all of the players.

ashleys army

Great effort lads more 2morro please!

BrianT

Disappointed that Clueless Thewliss didn't make more of an effort in the cricket report on Look North. Could have found more out from teletext. Could have found the space by reducing the football manager's moan by half.

Close of Play

End of Day One. Durham close day one on 48-0 with Stoneman 33* and Smith 12*. They trail Surrey by 189.

7:00pm

stuartp

Good day for us in the end. That last session turned it round completely.

One over left

One over left till the close of play. Batty to bowl.

6:57pm

12 overs bowled

Durham are 37-0 after 12 overs. Stoneman 28* and Smith 6*. We trail by 200.

6:53pm

Change in Bowling

Gareth Batty replaces Meaker in the attack.

6:48pm

stuartp

Commentators whinging about 12 O'clock start. To me it is an excellent idea. Those of us with jobs get to catch a bit of cricket after work.

Change in Bowling

Gary Keedy replaces Finley in the attack.

6:44pm

stuartp

Getting to the danger point for Rocky though. He needs to turn the nice 30's into 50's and 100's more often.

9 overs bowled

Durham are 35-0 after nine. Stoneman 26* and Smith 6*. We trail by 202.

6:43pm

Four!

Another boundary to Rocky as he dispatches the ball to the fence.

6:41pm

brandonia

Segga v Brandon tomorrow.

Mark

Let's hope they've got nothing to post for a long time!

brandonia

Shot(s) Rocky!

Fours!

Stoneman cracks two boundaries back-to-back off Linley. He moves to 18*.

6:38pm

poolynorm

Credit to BCC. I remember the days when they joined the NWD league.Played one night and a group of walkers claimed it was a public path and just passed through.

auldtimer

Surrey are on the ball with posting highlights on twitter, the videos are on within minutes of wickets falling. It's something that's sadly lacking with Durham.

Durhamlad

Segga vs who??

brandonia

Aye, Brath was in the wickets too. Should pop over to Segga tomorrow Norm. Big game!

brandonia

My colleague informed me that LP was a hotbed for Fish Lot.

Six overs in

Durham are 15-0 after six overs. Stoneman 7* and Smith 5*. Still trail by 222.

6:29pm

poolynorm

See KT scored runs at the Riggs last week.Not sure there's a chippy at WG.Probably should have had a bit of Parklife.

brandonia

Yeah, it's 96 overs in a day OR 6pm, whatever is latest. (In this case 7pm).

Re: Brandonia

Not sure, whether we'll stick to that because there's plenty of time left, so we could have a few extras.

6:26pm

stuartp

35 minutes left, so more like 9 overs I'd say.

morzee

get to the close non down that would be perfect.

brandonia

Nice one, thanks.

Re: Brandonia

Seven overs left I think.

6:23pm

auldtimer

Great effort from our bowlers, but don't forget Batty and Keedy have over 1100 first class wkts between them.

brandonia

Big passage of play this like.

raydetmold

Hope Smith can consolidate on his magnificent century last week

BrianT

I think most people would have realised that.

morzee

if you are referring to my comment about who needs bunny onions then of course it was a joke. He is the best bowler in the league

brandonia

How many overs are left in the day guys?

Three overs in

Durham are 15-0 after three overs. Smith 5* and Stoneman 7*. Trail by 222.

6:19pm

brandonia

Been working at Witton Gilbert Bowling Green today Norm ;-)

Four!

Smith crashes the last ball of Linley's over the boundary. Durham 11-0.

6:16pm

poolynorm

Aftas Brando, it doesn't look as though you've been checking out the best chippies in County Durham today!!

ashleys army

It was there I'm sure ha-ha sorry lads I'm cracking up,keep up the good work!

bryn

got jeff buckleys hallelujah in my nappa now

Bowling

Tim Linley will share the new ball with Meaker.

6:11pm

Durhamlad

I cant even see a comment where someone was dissing Onions?!

BrianT

Paranoia setting in here. It may have been a joke comment about Onions.

Four!

Stoneman is off the mark with a boundary! Durham 6-0.

6:08pm

Bowling

Stuart Meaker will open the bowling for Surrey.

6:07pm

ashleys army

Onions is still a very important player for us,don't go slagging him off hrs Ben brilliant this season already

stuartp

So it's been our session so far then?

Durham

Mark Stoneman and Will Smith open the batting for Durham.

6:07pm

Durhamlad

Fantastic effort from the lads and especially young Buckley! Morzee dont count your chickens as Surrey's strength is in their bowling. Stick in boys!

auldtimer

Isn't there only 11 overs left for Durham to bat today?

Re: safcluke

12 I think after the changeover, but we have time for more.

6:02pm

safcluke

How many overs left tonight?

@surreycricket

The wicket of Zander de Bruyn for 57 http://t.co/S569r6dtul @DurhamCricket

morzee

but that's not to take anything away from our boys here.

foxbat

Fantastic effort by the guys and especially the new kid Buckley. Brilliant.

Durham

What a spell of bowling that was by Buckley and don't forget Borthwick. They turned the game around in the space of five overs. What a performance on debut though by Buckley, he won't forget this in a hurry.

6:00pm

brandonia

They're not as good as the lazy southern bias journos think they are.......

marchy22

well done buckley and durham, and yorks do deserve to win that one but i rather they didnt

morzee

Surrey must be the most over rated, over hyped team in the history of county cricket. utter rubbish they are.

brandonia

I'd like to refer you to my post after Ryan's first wicket! Great effort. Get him batting at 3!! For us to roll them for that score after what they were at Tea is class. We must've had something in our scones!!

Noz

Excellent fightback from 221-4! Congrats to Buckley. Fantastic figures on debut

raydetmold

Magnificent effort again today , well done Durham

Mark

Brilliant from Buckley

safcluke

Well done lad.

BrianT

Yorkshire deserve to win that one.

chrissafc

marchy22

somerset best hang in on there, could do with that being a draw

BrianT

Commentators clutching at straws. Excited at the thought of getting Durham in tonight.

WICKET!

Buckley has five for on debut!! He traps Keedy lbw for 5. Surrey all out for 237. He finishes with 5-86.

5:57pm

auldtimer

Buckley wouldn't have played if Breese had been fit, so far he's grabbed the chance with both hands.

Noz

Yorkshire giving Somerset a pasting! 47-5 following on

morzee

great effort this is. I must say I hadn't heard of the lad before today. who needs bunny onions hey!

ashleys army

I said at lunch we'd get them out for 250 not gonna b far wrong it looks

marchy22

ive never even heard of the kid, long may this form continue

brandonia

Bo selecta! Durham on top!!

safcluke

Great debut for Buckley. How wrong I've been proven!

BrianT

Funny how nobody was pushing for Buckley to play at the start of the season. I include myself in that.

Wicket!

Buckley strikes again and he has four. Lindley goes for 0, caught by Borthwick. Surrey 237-9.

5:51pm

New Batsman

The new man at the crease is Tim Linley.

5:50pm

brandonia

New ball due but the way our twirlers have performed I wouldn't take it yet.

brandonia

Cracking debut thus far from Buckley! Can he bat 3?!!!!!!

brandonia

GET IN THERE!!!!!!!!!

auldtimer

I'm having that one too.

Wicket!

New Batsman

The new man at the crease is Gareth Batty.

5:39pm

Wicket

Wilson was out for six, rather than four.

5:37pm

auldtimer

Excellent first day for Buckley, he'll be tired tonight but probably to hyped up to sleep.

Wicket

Buckley deserves that for some fine bowling on debut today. He's got through a lot of overs.

5:36pm

brandonia

GET IN!! Lets roll them for 260!!!

Mark

Excellent!

Wicket!

Buckley strikes again as he removes Wilson for four, caught by Borthwick. Surrey 232-6.

Steven Davies moves to fifty and is then bowled for 52 http://t.co/Ti4AcEUdW0 @DurhamCricket

brandonia

Well bowled Scotty...... ARF!!!

marchy22

would be great if we could get them all out for 300ish

Wicket

Davies misses the ball and Borthwick takes the wicket with a full toss, not that he will be complaining.

5:25pm

safcluke

That will do.

Mark

Excellent

New Batsman

The new man at the crease is Gary Wilson.

5:24pm

Wicket!

Borthwick strikes as he clean bowls Davies for 52. Surrey 221-5, a big wicket for Durham!

Surrey bring up their 200 with the first ball after Tea.

5:03pm

safcluke

Haway lads.

Evening Session

The players are out after the Tea break and play should resume shortly.

5:02pm

raydetmold

i wouldnt say Surrey were well on top , couple of quick wickets and we can still bowl them out for under 300

brandonia

I didn't say we didn't, but another session similar would have them 300-6. I know who I'd prefer to be on that situation.

stuartp

Funny I would have said we won the 1st session.

brandonia

Surrey well on top now like, another session like the last two and we'll be playing for a draw.

safcluke

Lets hope we can break this after tea,.

stuartp

Somerset 252 AO in response to the Yorkies 500. Rain means that is just about bonus points though.

Tea

It's Tea. Surrey are 199-4 after 67 overs. Davies 34* and De Bruyn 46*. Partnership 62*.

4:42pm

One over left till Tea

65 overs bowled

Surrey are 189-4 after 65 overs with De Bruyn 45* and Davies 25*. Partnership 52*.

4:36pm

Anyone else find the Surrey commentator's voice incredibly annoying? Sounds like a child.

Re: auldtimer

Yes it is.

4:35pm

brandonia

These two are nailed on for 50's seeing how we've dropped them both.......

auldtimer

Tea must be at 16:40 and not 64 overs.

Change in Bowling

Scott Borthwick replaces Buckley in the attack.

raydetmold

would be nice to break this partnership before tea

Maiden

Wood sends down a maiden in the 60th over. His third in his 12 overs.

4:18pm

Dropped!

Mustard does extremely well to get to a De Bruyn clip but he can't hold on off Wood's bowling. De Bruyn was on 36.

4:16pm

Frankjw

Doing well to keep these 2 reasonably quiet, but we need them out

Maiden

That last over from Buckley was a maiden, his sixth in his 20 overs.

marchy22

come on lads two more needed before tea

Mark

Suppose it depends on schedule for Kent CC matches because I don't think he's played 4 day cricket this season.

auldtimer

I can't really see how Washington will get many, if any, games from Harmy junior?

Mark

Must just be commuting up when available at weekends. He did pretty well for Kent with the bat v Notts on the TV game.

Change in Bowling

Wood replaces Thorp in the attack.

3:56pm

53 overs bowled

Surrey are 152-4 after 53 overs. Davies 9* and De Bruyn 24*. Partnership 15*.

Ben playing for Kent today

Mark

Interesting, that's a long way from Kent

150 up for Surrey

Surrey bring up their 150 in the 47th over. Davies 9* and De Bruyn 22*. Partnership 13*.

3:47pm

chrissafc

excellent commentator, obviously well thought of as he was doing the 5 live news not to long ago

Mark

Yeah, mine too he is excellent.

parky

He has my vote for the most entertaining County commentator

brandonia

Run rate is down under 3, good pressure bowling from our lads.

chrissafc

marty back on commentary now, good

Maiden

Buckley sends down yet another maiden his fourth of the day.

3:43pm

keenasmustard

Bad luck, Davies very dangerous player.

Buckley puts down Davies on 1 in a caught and bowled chance!

3:39pm

parky

unlucky

BrianT

During the war a ship's parrot broke wind just as the ship was hit by a German torpedo. The parrot went to a watery grave thinking it had sunk the ship.

New Batsman

The new man at the crease is Steven Davies.

3:37pm

Noz

Nice one Cal!! Keep them coming!! :-)

marchy22

ill claim that one

Tynevalleyblackcat

Good stuff. I am hoping for 7 down for not many by Tea.

Wicket!

Thorp gets his third wicket of the day as he removes Harinath for 53 caught at slip by Colly. Surrey 137-4.

auldtimer

Is Rushy bowling from the same end he bowled his first spell from, I've noticed that he always get to run into the wind.

Maiden

Rushworth sends down his third maiden in a row after lunch.

3:05pm

ashleys army

He was stopping mid sentence n not finishing couldn't understand what he wad on about half the time

Mark

Good , building pressure.

2:39pm

Afternoon session

The players are back out after Lunch. Play should be underway shortly.

2:38pm

chrissafc

he didnt look comfortable on sunday. a few people mentioned that. his benefit event and he's representing sky

Mark

He often looks nervous on TV but not as much as when he was younger. He seemed pretty relaxed when he was on with Colly during the NZ away series.

ashleys army

Is it just me or does anyone else think harmie looks really uncomfortable on tv?

Mark

Thanks

safcluke

Harmison said on Sky on Sunday "we wont have any over seas this season"

Mark

Anyone know if we are planning to have overseas players for t20?

Mark

Yes, they are very strong. Think they have some injury problems but still the team to beat.

ashleys army

Warks will miss bell n trott but as they showed last year still cracking team

brandonia

Congratulations to Ryan Buckley, now get yerself a Michelle r'kid!!

Mark

Forgot about Finn, he'll be a big miss.

ashleys army

Yeah u agree morz,he needs to lose a couple of stone doesn't he?

morzee

how samit patel keeps getting picked is a joke

ashleys army

I think they will fade n they'll lose Finn to England

safcluke

Tredwell/Briggs before Borthwick I'd think. Plus Samit Patel.

ashleys army

Not so sure,he can bat n bowl,I'm talking 1 dayers not tests

Mark

I think we have a good chance of the title, Middlesex look v strong as well but they will miss Chris Rogers.

safcluke

Example if a batsman miss out they would go for Bairstow or James Taylor.

safcluke

Swann/Monty/Tredwell/Kerrigan/Briggs all before Borthwick. England operate a "waiting list2 type of thing.

safcluke

No chance.

ashleys army

Borthwick?

safcluke

The only player England will touch is Onions.

ashleys army

I reckon we cud win title this year if England keep off our players tho warwicks win b major threat

Mark

We might do but I always thought it was highly unlikely, for one thing it would mean finishing below Derbyshire. Winning 5 out of last 6 last year ( and almost certainly would have beaten Lancs had it not rained) suggests we are pretty good

ashleys army

Howay Luke u only need 4 wins we've got 2 already for a mud table finish at least

RE: SixSixEight

I'm afraid I don't know. If you email someone such as Richard or Sarah at the club, they might be able to tell you.

2:06pm

safcluke

And for the record, I think Derby and Middlesex will struggle.

safcluke

One good session doesn't make a difference. Pundits are entitled to think we might finish bottom. Who says we wont like?

Mark

I asked Martin Emmerson about that a few weeks ago and he said he hadn't been given any dates yet.

SixSixEight

Are there going to be any members after match sessions this year? I've not seen any advertised for this year - there were 3 last year.

Update

A good morning for Durham after losing the toss. Callum Thorp struck early on to remove Burns and Roy while Ryan Buckley picked up his first, first class wicket with the scalp of Solanki. Plenty more cricket to some so stick around for the afternoon session.

2:02pm

Mark

Lol

Lunch

It's Lunch at the Oval. Surrey are 103-3 after 30 overs Harinath 32* and De Bruyn 8*, partnership is 14*.

2:01pm

SixSixEight

'experts'.....and Marchy. ;)

ashleys army

Great start to the season remember last year poor start but turned it on later in season ,hopefully can b up challenging this year

Appeal

Wood and the slips are looking for a catch behind against Harinath but the umpire says not out.

2:00pm

Mark

Yep, win this and strengthen our position at the top. Not bad for a team many 'experts' were tipping to finish bottom of the league.

morzee

afternoon all. With the other games this week heading for draws this is a great chance for us to draw away from the pack.

Maiden

Wood sends down his second maiden of the day in the 28th over.

1:53pm

27 overs in

Surrey are 101-3 after 27 overs. Harinath 32* and De Bruyn 6*. partnership 12*.

@surreycricket

The wicket of Vikram Solanki for 38 http://t.co/BcnJ6csggO @DurhamCricket

Mark

Bob Willis was complaining about Surrey not developing many of their own young players and relying on signing pensioners ( his word!) from other counties!!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Good stuff and always good to see some new blood coming in and doing well.

New batsman

The new man at the crease for Surrey is Zander de Bruyn.

1:43pm

12:57pm

brandonia

Perhaps not from NE but certainly learnt his trade here..... But aye, it's on our local news so that's good enough for me!

BrianT

My old neighbour now lives in Cockermouth. He claims to have the rudest address in the UK.

Maiden

Colly sends down a maiden in his first over.

12:56pm

safcluke

Cockermouth is Cumbria. Bit like saying Newcastle is part of Sunderland.

chrissafc

fair enough :)

BrianT

Cockermouth is always on Look North.

Change in Bowling

Paul Collingwood replaces Rushworth in the attack.

12:53pm

chrissafc

neither is stokes is he?

BrianT

Smith, Thorpe and Banks ain't.

chrissafc

I can think of 7

Stop!

Smith does well in gully to stop a shot from Solanki reaching the boundary. Nice work in the field.

12:50pm

brandonia

Somebody posted on RTG that there's 8 NE lads in the current lineup - great stuff that. Great advert too for the cricket hotbed that is the NE!

daleslass

I'm so pleased for Callum. He's one of those players that's always there but never really in the spotlight.

10 overs in

Surrey are 38-2 after 10 overs. Harinath 10* and Solanki 9*. Partnership is 10*.

12:45pm

Maiden!

Thorp sends down a maiden in the 10th over. The first of the day.

12:44pm

Play and Miss

Solanki plays and misses a delivery from Thorp. Another nice delivery.

12:44pm

brandonia

Hope he gets his second wind and can stay on for a long spell!

SixSixEight

Great start, and nice to see Thorpy back, and that Ben is ok and playing - I'll be down after lunch hopefully. I'll second the comment about more updates on the website and twitter, especially the 2nd xi. All good stuff and keep it coming!

Nice delivery

Thorp jags a ball back into Solanki which rises onto his gloves. That could have gone anywhere. Callum's bowling well this morning.

12:41pm

Fantastic start

BrianT

Martin on the mike now. Straight on the attack.

chrissafc

another thing. a lot of people (including myself) have mentioned the lack of updates on the website and especially 2nd xi cricket updates. it's good to see recently more updates on the website.

New batsman

The new man at the crease is Vikram Solanki.

12:33pm

Good look to Ryan. Love how we've given a few young lads a go lately.

RE: Safcluke

Off spin.

12:24pm

safcluke

I assume Buckley bowls spin?

little_smudge

Really glad to see Ryan Buckley is getting a chance. I used to work with his Mam a while ago, when he was in the youth teams and now it's his first team debut. I hope he does really well.

Chance!!

Roy has a dab at a ball from Rushworth which just misses the outside edge. That was close to the outside edge.

12:20pm

4 overs in

Surrey are 15-1 after 4 overs. Roy 9* and Harinath 4*. Partnership 12*.

12:16pm

Tristan

maybe martin has had to walk the plank?

keenasmustard

And who is this Waitrose that's now sponsoring English cricket? Thought that was Yorkshire's emblem.

BrianT

Do we have a new keeper, Mastard. Any why is Scotty in the galley? Where's Martin?

Tristan

ok sorry LMC, chuckle then

Tristan

is it immature that i often s*** a bit when i hear a guy describe another guy as being fit?

Tynevalleyblackcat

Good Start and great to hear that Stokes is ok to play.

brandonia

Thorpedo!!!!!!

Noz

brandonia

Afternoon LMC'ers! Having a health conscious KFC for Lunch today!!

christoff

Bowling

Callum Thorp will share the new ball with Rushworth.

12:03pm

1 over gone

Surrey are 3-0 after the first over. Roy 2* and Burns 1*.

12:02pm

Tristan

cheers. surprised pringle didnt survive the cut then if he bowls spin. i guess maybe pringle is seen as a one day player and buckley is our new county spinner? our best period was with two spinners so i cant argue. would be nice if either can bat like blacky tho

RE: Tristan

Off spinner, I believe.

12:00pm

keenasmustard

I think Colly should bowl himself. Took two wickets yesterday.

Tristan

anyone got any info re buckley, what kind of bowler is he?

Bowling

Chris Rushworth will open the bowling for Durham.

11:57am

Tristan

its funny how our troubles at the top of the order have lead us to move scotty up, bring in another bowler and drop a batsman... lets hope it works...

Surrey

Roy and Burns will open the batting for Surrey.

11:57am

christoff

Morning all, howay Durham!

Re: keenasmustard

Not been on here for a couple of weeks. Who is the LMC host now?

11:54am

Noz

Cheers fellas. Haway Durham, let's get amongst those wickets :-)

keenasmustard

Keep up LMC host ;)

RE: Noz

I think so.

11:53am

keenasmustard

Yes

Noz

Cheers both. Does that mean tomorrow starts at 11 as usual?

RE: Noz

We start at 12 because of the 40 over game's later finish yesterday.

11:52am

keenasmustard

@Noz - start delay is due to last night's game being floodlit so a late finish even though it didnt turn out that way

marchy22

its gonna be a struggle for us to take wickets i think
