The Foster brothers have taken all 10 wickets for Stockton and Northern Districts as the Seagulls sealed first-innings points against Newcastle City at No.1 Sportsground on Saturday.
Left-arm seamer Daniel Foster, playing his second first XI match this season, and off-spinner Nick Foster produced combined figures of 10-48 from 19.2 overs with the visitors dismissing City for 86.
Stockton skipper Nick said it was a rare family affair in the Newcastle District Cricket Association top grade.

“It’s probably happened before at some point [all 10 wickets taken by brothers in a Newcastle first grade innings] but I can’t remember one in recent times,” he said.
“Maybe the Webbers [Sam and Matt at Hamwicks] or the Christies [Murray and Steve at Waratah], but there wouldn’t be a huge number.”
Daniel bowled first change and claimed the opening six wickets of the innings before finishing 7-31 from 13 overs. Coming from the other end Nick, who also took a catch for his sibling, had 3-17 off 6.2 overs.
In reply Stockton ended up 8-204 at stumps, including Nick’s 47 off 45 balls, and will take a 118-run lead into day two of the round 10 encounter. Other notable performances included Laurence Kelly’s 84 for Stockton while City skipper Jonty Major picked up 4-22.
Elsewhere, Charlestown (4-121) have also collected first-innings points and are seven runs in front of Belmont (114) with six wickets in hand at Cahill Oval.
Hamwicks (233) are in a strong position versus Cardiff (4-21) at Passmore Oval, Andrew Harriott’s 130 helped University declare at 8-347 against hosts Waratah (1-31) while Toronto made 2-51 in 18 overs against Merewether at Ron Hill Oval after play started around 6pm.
