End of season work 2018
Sep 27, 2018, 8:31 pm

We completed our end of season work on our 15 wicket cricket square on 19th September.

We scarified our square on the angle and then straight up and down the wicket.

We spread;

  • 4 bags of Barenberg extreme grass seed.

  • 2 bags of fertiliser.

  • 4 ton of surrey loam.

  • 2 bags of soil conditioner.

After watering we now have 6 germination sheets on to help promote grass growth.

Around our square we have fitted chicken mesh to keep the rabbits and footballers off.

Now we wait for the grass to grow before we move our germination sheets.

1st win again
Sep 5, 2018, 1:21 pm


Saturday 1st September saw Corbridge CC 1st team make the journey to the REC for the Division 3 tie. Corbridge won the toss on a good looking track and elected to bat, the opening bats occupied the crease without scoring many runs, and both bats fell soon after each other scoring 10 and 4 respectively Cory Milburn taking both wickets. In came Chris Fowler who always seem to score runs against the rugger boys, he kept his good form against us going scoring 54 off 66 balls falling to the bowling of James Richards and the safe hands of Adam Peacock. From then Corbridge didn’t seem to get going again apart from Marcus Sewell with 17 and Andy Dover 22 not out. Eventually all out for 156 off 49.4 overs.

Our bowlers;

Dean Greaves 0 wickets for 21 runs with 4 maidens.

Cory Milburn 3 wickets for 39 runs with 1 maiden.

James Richards 3 wickets for 35 runs with 3 maidens.

Mark Lawrence o wickets for 29 runs with 1 maiden.

Scott Maddison 3 wickets for 17 runs with 1 maiden.


Our runs chase started well with Matty Tanney and Callum Milburn keeping the score board ticking over before a rash shot by Callum which saw him bowled for 26 with 4 fours off 33 balls, in came Adam Peacock who built a great partnership with Matty as well as pushing the scoring on. We won the game after 35.5 overs with 14 overs to spare, Matty not out on 43 with 3 fours off 101 balls and Adam not out on 84 with 12 fours and 1 six off 76 balls. Great win by 9 wickets with maximum points on what proved to be a good deck for batting.


Today’s game saw both Callum Milburn and Adam Peacock pass the 500 run mark for the season to date.


Ashington RCC 30 points & Corbridge CC 3 points


2nd team had a free week this week.

Two tight wins
Aug 30, 2018, 10:26 am


Saturday 26th August 2018 saw Backworth CC travel to the REC to play our 1st team, we lost the toss and were put into bat on a dampish track after rain. We lost our openers early on Matty Tanney going for 1 and David Dent out for 14. This brought Adam Peacock and Callum Milburn to the crease both played the innings we required building a good partnership, Adam was eventually out on 31 and Callum fell 1 run short of a half century. Apart from a good knock from Kevin Hetherington of 21 and Mark Lawrence with 11 no other player hit double figures, we eventually were all out for 147, quite a few runs short of what we thought was a good target.

Best of Backworth bowlers was C. Minto 4 wickets for 33 runs and S. Shannon 3 for 15.

Backworth’s reply had to be slowed down by our bowling attack the best way to do that is take wickets and that is how it panned out only J. Langley with 20, J. Duncan 11, N. Collins 10, C. Minto 51 and A Mooney with 11 were the only ones to hit double figures. We bowled Backworth out for 128 winning by 19 runs a great result against a team second top of the league and gunning for promotion. Mark Lawrence did some real damage to Backworth’s innings taking a 5 wicket haul.

Our bowlers who did the damage Dean Greaves 1 wicket for 17 runs, Cory Milburn 3 for 26, Mark Lawrence 5 for 18, Scott Maddison o for 35 and James Richards 1 for 18.

This win put us on 346 points 64 points clear of the third bottom place with only 2 games left that puts us clear of any concerns of relegation playoffs: saying that with the team we have we should not have been in this position in the first place. We are now mid table 6th from bottom and 7th from the top of the league.

Ashington Rugby CC 27 points and Backworth CC 7 points

Our 2nd team travelled to Howick CC in a potential promotion match, with both teams having their eye on second place, what a game it turned out to be. We lost the toss and were put into bat Chris Harwood and captain Stu Rosser got us off to a great start just short of a 100 partnership before Stu was out caught and bowled for 46 he walked after no appeal as others thought it was bump ball, well done captain. Chris went on to score 74 with other chipping in we managed to get the score up to 174 for 5 wickets.

Pick of Howicks CC bowlers was R. Elliot with 3 wickets for 30 runs.

Howicks run chase started well as we took a while before we could break the opening partnership first wicket to fall was their captain. Their other opener A. Riley went on to score 58, when we took the pace off the ball with Trevor Elliott and David Wanless bowling the run rate started to go up and we strangled the run scored Trevor was the pick of our bowlers taking 3 wickets for 33 runs, what we did very well was our fielding and especially our catching. Tom More took three catches and two of those were very good including a one hander over his head.

In a tight game we eventually bowled our 40 overs with Howick’s score finishing on 167 for 9, that gave us a victory by 7 runs. This kept us in the chase for promotion we have a free week next week which means everyone can close the point’s gap. The final week of the season will be the decider.

Howick CC 1st team 7 points and Ashington RCC 29 points
