Double Defeats
Aug 15, 2018, 12:05 pm


Saturday 11th August saw our 1st team entertain second top Blue Flames at the REC. We batted first and got off to a steady start before losing Matty Tanney for 13, this then saw former captain A. Peacock arrive at the crease him and David Dent put on a partnership before David was out for 23, in came Lewis Tanney he was out with a stunning caught and bowled for 1. Callum Milburn entered the stage he out on 21 before he was out LBW. Kevin Hetherington (Tucker) hit a brisk 25 Adam hit another 50 for the club eventually out on 65. We finished on 190 for 7.

Chasing Blue Flames lost two quick wickets of I. Khan for 6 and Y. Baig 0 to Dean Greaves and Cory Milburn, in came Maqsood who hit a brisk 55with support from Faisal with 24 and Awan with 34 and the not outs of A. Khan on 30 and N. Amin the latter two bated very well for number 8 and 9s to see Blue Flames home in the final over.

Our Bowling Dean Greaves 3 wickets for 25 runs, Cory Milburn 2 for 45, James Richards 2 for 43, Scott Maddison 0 for 37 and Matty Tanney 0 for 28.

So close but yet so far we need a win to give us a cushion from third bottom place in the league as we don’t want to get drawn into the play offs.

Ashington Rugby CC 7 points Blue Flames CC 27 points.

Our 2nd team Travelled to Monkseaton in a top of the league clash as Church Hill Playing Fields. We lost the toss and were put into to bat we soon found out why with the wicket being very unpredicteable. Our scoring was slow and we lost our captain Rosser early on bringing Michael Adamson to the crease with Dean Hardy both built a partnership before Dean was out on 17, Michael went on to score 45 before he was out. Paul Milburn 20 not out helped us limp to a score our 121 for 6 in our 40 overs.

Monkseaton 1st plans were obvious with Bob Zenniti flashing at ball we thought that we had him plumb LBW in the second over to 12 year old Owen Mason hitting Bob on the foot with a full ball in front of all three NOT OUT was the decision from Monkseatons captain who was umpiring bob went on to score 69 before being caught off our spinner Jonny Acaster. Monkseaton hit the winning runs with 6 wickets down with 2 overs to spare.

Trevor Elliott bowled a great tight spell well supported by Tom More and Craig Jobson.

This defeat left the Rugger boys still 6 points in second place however Monkseaton 1st team have a game in hand.

Our bowlers Cory Milburn 3 wickets for 40 runs, Dean Greaves 3 for 27, James Richards 0 for 49, Mark Lawrence 2 for 62 and Scott Maddison 1 for 42.

We started the chase off by trying to score but not give wickets away opening bat Harwood fell for 15, this brought Adam Peacock to the crease with Cullum Milburn the pair put on a good partnership before Callum fell for 35, and Adam went for 58, David Dent for 25 and then Cory Milburn made a fight of it scoring 45 batting at number 8, he hit a massive six which landed on football pitch and even the GEMS players applauded, we eventually fell 27 runs short in our run chase posting 217 all out.

We need to look to pick up 2 wins from our last 5 games to keep us away from the third bottom playoff position.
