Cricket Grounds of Britain 


1st Win a close match 2nds lose
Sep 5, 2019, 1:53 pm


On 31st August our first team entertained Warkworth CC who are 2nd in Division 3 and ourselves who are sitting 4th. We won the toss and elected to bat first we lost early wickets first wicket at 14, second on 41 and third on 56 and fourth on 90, Adam Peacock was the shining light in our batting this week he post a good 61 and our 10th wicket stand of 31 between Anthony Elliott with 18 and 16 not out by Dean Greaves saw us through to a disappointing 164 all out.


Warkworth stand out bowlers were D. Potts with 12 overs, 5 wickets for 37 and M. Potts 9 overs 3 wickets for 33 runs.


We knew we had a challenge on our hands with Warkworth’s pro Kamran Mansoor who hit a 100 not out in the earlier season reverse of this fixture.


We bowled well trying to keep it tight and applying pressure at the same time, we were very pleased to see the back of Mansoor who strangely kneeled down trying to play an extravagant shot against our spin bowler Scott Maddison, and he missed the ball and was out bowled for 43. Along with runs for M. Potts 20 and 31 not out from Martin Clark saw the game become very close with Warkworth needing 6 from the final over which was bowled by Dean Greaves Warkworth eventually finished up on 160 for 9.


This meant that we had won by 4 runs a brilliant result which opened up the promotion race for other clubs as this saw Warkworth drop to third place and ourselves stayed in fourth place with 350 points with 10 wins, 3 defeats and 7 games cancelled or abandoned due to the weather, if only we could have played the same games as the teams above us we could also be in the fight for the top two we are sitting 39 point back from second place with 60 to play for.


Our bowlers;

Dean Greaves - 10 overs 2 wickets for 28 runs

James Richards - 12 overs 2 wickets for 31 runs

Mark Lawrence - 12 overs 2 wickets for 37 runs

Scott Maddison – 12 overs 3 wickets for 45 runs

Cory Milburn - 4 overs 0 wickets for 12 runs


Ashington Rugby CC 27 points & Warkworth CC 8 points


Our 2nd team travelled to Heaton for our match against Newcastle 3rds this being the final game of the season with us needing 2 points to win the league.


With a couple of players missing we needed to get our heads up after last week’s defeat. We won the toss and elected to bat on what proved to be a poor wicket with indifferent bounce. We struggled to post 106 for 5 from our 40 overs with free scoring Stu Rosser scoring 40 not out from 40 overs, Michael Adamson 14 and Craig Jobson with 10.

Our wicket fell at 16 for 1, 36 for 2, 74 for 3 78 for 4 and 98 for 5.


Newcastle’s reply was it took them 33 overs to hit the winning runs with the loss of 3 wickets, they lost their wickets at 15 for 1, 92 for 2 and 105 for 3. Tiger Roberts 48 and Australian Piran Retize 41 not out. Well done to a very youthful Newcastle team the best team won on the day.


Our bowlers;

Craig Jobson - 8 overs 1 wicket for 16 runs

Owen Mason - 8 overs 0 wickets for 28 runs

David Wanless - 7 overs 0 wickets for 15 runs

Trevor Elliot - 4 overs 0 wickets for 18 runs

Ricky Gibson – 4 overs 1 wicket for 13 runs

Michael Adamson – 1 over 0 wickets for 13 runs

Johnny Richards 1 over 1 wicket for 2 runs


Newcastle CC 3rd 27 points & Ashington Rugby CC 3 points


The 3 points we took from toady’s game was enough for us to be crown League Champions the first time our club at 1st or 2nd team level has ever won a league, well done to all the players this season great effort and a special thank you and praise for our captain Stu Rosser with nearly 800 runs with an average of over 130 brilliant effort with 4 hundreds and 2 fifties.
