2 great wins
Aug 10, 2019, 12:04 pm

Saturday 3rd August saw Corbridge CC visit the REC for a league game, weather warm no over cast conditions, Corbridge CC won the toss and elected to bat.

They lost their first wicket on 17 bowled by the evergreen Dean Greaves; he struck again removing Australian Shoesmith on 4 with the total on 25. We bowled very well restricting their score and applying pressure, we quickly realised that spin was the way forward with our spin bowlers taking 6 wickets, Mark Lawrence being the star of the show taking 5 wickets for 15 runs. Corbridge only had on four players who scored double figures and the highest score was 36 by Atkinson. Eventually they were all out for 122 after 34.4 overs.

Our bowlers who took wickets Dean Greaves 12 overs 3 wickets for 35 runs, James Richards 12 overs 1 wicket for 41 runs, Mark Lawrence 5.4 overs 5 wickets for 15 runs, Scott Maddison 1 over 1 wickets for 0 runs.

Our run chase got off to a bad start with captain Dent hitting a first ball full toss straight to a fielder. The runs wasn’t easy to come by but we kept plugging away we lost wickets at 25, 58, 103 and our fifth for 120 before we won the game with 5 wickets down with the score on 126. Matty Tanney hit 44, David Dent 0, Adam Peacock 10, Callum Milburn 24, Lewis Tanney 34 and our two not out bats were Jay Little 6 and Cory Milburn 4.

Great win as Corbridge were 3rd in the league we took maximum points.

Ashington Rugby CC 30 points Corbridge CC 3 points.

Our 2nd team who are sitting top of their division travelled to local rivals and 2nd placed Bomarsund CC. We lost the toss and Bomar elected to bat and with us being a bit light in the bowling it was a good move with their opener Adam McTaggart hitting a great 125 not out supported by John Haig with 26 and Captain Alex Breeze with a lusty 24 finishing on 219 for 4 after their 40 overs.

We knew we had the batting ability as we had being batting well this season however Bomar made it hard for us, the star of our show was again our Captain Stuart Rosser who hit a great 132 in our reply support by Dean Hardy and Owen Jarvis who hit 21 and 11 not out respectively. Jarvi hitting two fine boundary fours to see us home with 7 balls to spare we finished on 222 for 6. This was the first time both of our openers had been put out this season.

This great win kept us top of the league 308 points 75 ahead of GEMS in second place and 82 above Riding Mill in third, Bomar dropped to fourth 1 point behind Riding Mill.

Rain stops the cricket

Saturday 13th July our 1st team entertained Wickham CC  for our Division 3 clash, Wickham won the toss and elected to bat and before they got onto the outfield the rain came down and did not stop for hours which led to the game being abandoned no play.

Ashington Rugby CC 5 points and Wickham CC 5 points

Our 2nd team travelled to Kirkley CC for our league fixture we won the toss and elected to bat on a damp overcast day, early on their bowlers caused our openers Captain Stu Rosser and Paul Milburn to battle hard in the first 10 overs to see the new ball off, that they did and when the rain eventually came we were 78 for 0 wickets after 16 overs, with Stu 37 and Paul 18 the rest were byes. Game were rained off with the ground not being fit after a few hours of rain. That meant we were still top of the league 43 points ahead of second place.

Saturday 5th July saw our 1st team travel to Benwell & Walbottle CC we lost the toss and they elected to bat, bolstered with their Pro Syed Raza back at the club for his 1st game of the season, he did not disappoint hitting a good 106 before being caught on the boundary, he was the only one who scored more than 20 they posted 193 for 7 in the allotted 50 overs.

Our bowlers Dean Greaves 12 overs 1 wicket for 23 runs, Cory Milburn 8 overs 1 wicket for 35 runs, James Richards 12 overs 0 wickets for 44 runs, Mark Lawrence 12 overs 3 wickets for 34 runs, Craig Jobson 6 overs 1 wicket for 39 runs.

Our run chase did not start well losing opener Callum Milburn for 0 with the score on 10, Matty Tanney and Adam Peacock put on a small partnership moving the score to 53 before Adam was out LBW, in came captain David Dent who quickly saw his partner Matty Tanney out in 16runs added with the score on 59 for 3. Jay Little was next in and he batted well before our captain was out for 22 with the score on 93 for 4. Jay hit a great knock of 52 before being caught and bowled by their Pro not before he and Cory Milburn moved the score to 153 for 6. Nervous times as we lost wickets the scores were close and Dean Greaves came to the rescue along with Craig Jobson who held our innings together being our last wicket Dean hit a cover drive for 4 to win us the game.

Our 2nds were at home with the visitors being Civil Service CC, big thanks to all of our lads who rallied to help the club with the team being missing 6 players. We won the toss and believe it or not the captain decided to bowl on a good looking wicket, mainly as we had only three recognised batsmen.

We struggled to take wickets on the wicket and they scored 169 for 4, G. Hunter 57 not out and A. Sheik a big hitting 65.

Our bowlers Oven Mason 9 overs 1 wicket for 30 runs, Ricky Gibson 9 overs 1 wicket for 27 runs both bowled better than their figures show, Paul Milburn 9 overs 1 wicket for 34 runs, Trevor Elliott 9 overs 1 wicket for 45 runs, Michael Adamson 4 overs 0 wickets for 26 runs.

Our captain was going to split our batting order up however after a conversation with a few elder statesmen he decided to keep it the same. Captain Stu Rosser and Paul Milburn opened up and they played themselves in and then hit the bad ball, gradually we pushed the score on and both players looked in fine form enough to see us through to a 10 wicket win, Stu on 95 not out and Paul on 70 not out.
