Both teams win on opening day
Apr 22, 2019, 6:50 pm


Saturday 20th April our 1st team hosted Benwell & Walbottle CC at the Rec, with the sun out for the first game of the season.


Having lost the toss and been asked to bat first we were in a spot of trouble at 24-2 having lost openers Matthew Tanney and Callum Milburn for 5 and 12 respectively Adam Peacock and David Dent started to rebuild slowly against some decent new ball bowling. The pair continued to the drinks break at 2 runs per over. They accelerated steadily after that with both batsmen passing 50. Dent was eventually bowled in the final over chasing his 100 for 95 which included 17 fours. Peacock had already secured his 100 which included 14 fours and a 6 finishing 109 not out. The pair had put on 200 exactly when Dent fell. Ashington Rugby CC finished on 229-3 from there 50 overs. 


In reply Benwell were soon struggling due to some tight new ball bowling by from Dean Greaves and Cory Milburn. Cory finished with 1-21 when Mark Lawrence came on at the rugby club end. He and Greaves continued to bowl excellently finishing with figures of 3-16 and 4-31 (including a hat trick) respectively from there 12 overs. Maddison and Richards claimed the final 2 wickets between them to bowl Benwell all out for 116.


Ashington Rugby CC 30 points - Benwell & Walbottle 2 points.

All Stars Cricket 2019
Jan 31, 2019, 10:07 pm

Due to a few factors we have changed our day from a Tuesday to a Sunday;

We are looking to work a lot closer with the Rugby club juniors in the hope to get some of their kids to attend our cricket session. They have the rugby training on a Sunday morning from 10:30am till 11:30am and the last day for rugby is 5th May 2019, so we have booked our All Stars to start on 12th May the same time 10:30am till 11:30 the last session being 30th June.

We are also looking to have All Stars 5 to 8 year olds and our own Junior All Stars 9 to 11. This is because we have a number of kids who are now 9 and they want to continue.

Big Bash Competition Rules


1. The League Secretary is the single point of contact in all matters relating to Big Bash competitions.


2. The Big Bash structure is:


a. There will be 3 groups at the qualifying stage.


b. The group of 4 teams will have the top 2 teams qualify for finals day, the 2 groups of 3 will have the winners qualify for finals day.


c. Group matches will be played over 20 overs, finals day will be played over 16 overs.


3. a) Group match winners will receive 4 points for the win and losers 0 points. Incomplete matches or matches lost due to weather, both teams will receive 1 point.


b) All results will be submitted electronically by the home team using the system provided by the League within forty-eight hours of the completion of any match, the away team must electronically agree this submission within a further 24 hours of the completion of the match.


4. In the event of a tied match the side losing the least wickets will be declared the winner. If both sides are still equal, the side scoring the most runs after 10 overs will be declared the winner. If both sides are still equal the side losing the least wickets at the completion of 10 overs will be declared the winner.


5. Match reports of cancellations through bad weather, shall be made to the League Secretary and the press on the day of the fixture.


6. The following shall apply for no balls, wides and number of overs per bowler:


a) No Balls: The No Ball rule of the Laws of Cricket (2017) shall apply except that underarm bowling will expressly not be permitted.


b) A “Free hit” will be allowed for each “no ball” called for a front foot infringement by a bowler. Field changes are not permitted for ‘free hit’ deliveries unless there is a change of striker. If the delivery for the “Free Hit” is not a legitimate delivery (any kind of no-ball or a wide ball), then the next delivery will become a free hit for whichever batsman is facing it.


c) Wides: Umpires are instructed to apply a very strict and consistent interpretation of Law 25.1 in order to prevent negative bowling. As a guide, if the ball passes either side of the wicket sufficiently wide to make it virtually impossible for the striker to play a “normal” cricket stroke from where he is standing and from where he should normally be standing at the crease the umpire shall call “wide”.


d) Each team must bowl a minimum of 4 bowlers. No bowler may bowl more than 25% of the agreed overs.


e) Umpires will be paid the fee agreed by the Executive plus travelling expenses.


f) All Group matches will commence at 2pm. In the event of a game not starting by 2:15pm the non-defaulting club to have choice of innings. In all matches the team must be completed by the tenth over – after that a player can only participate as a substitute fielder. Players who arrive late but within the 10 over period shall be permitted to bowl immediately.


g) At the instant of a delivery a maximum of 5 fielders may be outside an area bounded by two semi-circles centred on each middle stump (each with a radius of 30 yards) and joined by a parallel line on each side of the pitch. In the event of an infringement, either umpire shall call no-ball. The fielding circle should be marked by painted by white dots at five-yard intervals, each dot may be covered by a plastic or rubber (not metal) disc measuring 7 inches in diameter.


h) Fielding sides must complete 20 overs in 75 minutes. Each complete over not started after 75 minutes will be deducted from the innings of the side batting second. In the case of the team fielding second, 6 runs per over will be added to the side batting’s total for each complete over not started after 75 minutes.


i) At the fall of a wicket the incoming batsman must be in position to take guard or for his partner to face the next ball within 1 minute. If this requirement is not met the incoming batsman, on appeal, will be out “Timed out”.
