Disappointing day for both teams
Jul 19, 2018, 1:05 pm


Saturday 14th July saw Whickham CC visit the “REC” for the first team fixture, on a very warm day in the middle of the heat wave, Whickham CC won the toss and elected to bat on a dry track and the outfield was very quick.

Our opening bowling attack of Dean Greaves and Cory Milburn bowled a very good opening spell which restricted the visitors scoring only 1.5 runs an over for the first 15 overs. Opener Armstrong battled through and saw off opening spell and he eventually finished out on 59, Lancaster was the only other notable scorer with 40. Our main damage was done by our spin bowlers Scott and Mark who used the surface to their benefits.

Whickham eventually totalled 180 off their 50 overs for 9 wickets, our bowlers Dean Greaves 1 wicket for 32 runs, Cory Milburn 1 wicket for 19 runs, James Richards 0 wickets for 40 runs, Scott Maddison 4 wickets for 61 runs and Mark Lawrence 3 wickets for 18 runs.

Our run chase started badly with opener Matty Tanney out for a duck that brought Captain Adam Peacock to the crease with the other opener Callum Milburn. Callum did not take a backward step and he played some fantastic shots, enough for Whickham’s captain to remove both of the opening bowlers from the attack, the score was moving on a good pace, with some beautiful shots being played. At 97 for 1 Callum was out bowled by spinner Davidson for a great 74 and Captain Peacock was out for 22 and the batting collapse started, with a blink of an eye we went from 97 for 1 to 138 all out not a good effort, we had four players who scored 0 and four others who scored 12 or less.

Credit to Whickham’s opening bowler M. Rodger who came back into the attack and caused problems with a great spell of bowling taking 5 wickets for 22 runs.

Whickham won by 43 runs.

Ashington Rugby CC 6 points and Whickham 29 points.

Our 2nd team was away at league leaders Kirkley CC we won the toss and our captain decided to bowl which surprised Kirkley who batted on their small ground with the wicket being near the edge of the square leaving a short boundary. Youngster Owen Mason took his first wicket for the club removing their opener. Kirkley scored 242 for 8, C. Rowe scoring 36, C. Farrley 99 and A. Horner 32, a tough day in the field in the red hot heat.

Our run chased started well we had 81 on the board after 9 overs with both openers still at the crease, things were looking good until we lost captain Rosser on 51 soon after Dean Hardy was out 41. P. Milburn out for 25 then our batting quickly collapsed leaving us 181 all out.

Kirkley won by 62 runs.

Kirkley CC 30 points and Ashington Rugby CC 9 points.

Tea Room Improvements

A big thank you to the ECB Small Grants Scheme 2018, in supporting our club after taking part in the 2018 All Stars.

We renewed 8 tea room tables and 30 chairs.

What a difference it makes.

Our club endeavours to upgrade our facilities/fittings/equipment each year, this is our little upgrade this season.

We also purchased two 3 seater benches which we will put on the embankment side on to our cricket square.

Both captains hit a hundred in two wins
Jul 11, 2018, 12:53 pm


Saturday 7th July a key week for both teams the 1st team away to Whitley Bay and the 2nd team at home to Wooler 1st team. Another little complication was the England Quarter Final game against Sweden both teams started an hour earlier so they could watch the match at tea time.

1st team had to try to get back to winning ways after two back to back defeats against Berwick. We won the toss and elected to bat first we got off to a decent start with Matty Tanney and Callum Milburn, Callum was out for 26 and Captain Adam Peacock came to the crease looking to find some form, both batters played what was in front of them and built a good partnership. Matty was out for 62 and Adam hit a hundred and was eventually out for 116 a much need knock which we hope he can build on. Chris Harwood came in and scored 43 not out. This gave us our highest score of the season with 302 for 8 wickets.

Whitley Bay never really got going only N. Dolan 12, M. Harris 22 and G. Turnbull 38 scored double figures they were all out for 101, losing by 201 runs. Our Bowlers who did the damage were our opening attack of Dean Greaves with 4 wickets for 18 runs and Cory Milburn with 4 wickets for 50 runs.

Whitley Bay CC 5 points Ashington Rugby CC 30 points

Our 2nd team were put into bat by Wooler 1st team on another wicket like a road, quite a surprise to the Ash captain. Following up from 116 in the last game our captain Stu Rosser along with Dean Hardy opened up the batting they played quite defensive early on to the Wooler bowlers who bowled a good line and length and gave nothing away. Stu and Dean stayed together for 33 overs before Dean was out bowled by Aitcheson he finished on 66, the captain built on last week where he posted another ton he was eventually out with 1 ball left in the innings finishing on 133 fantastic effort by both openers. When our innings ended we scored 238 for 3 off 40 overs.

Wooler lost a few wickets early on with Tom More taking 3 for 25 cheered on by the Rugby masses enjoying a drink after the England win. Wooler eventually finished their innings with a score of 139 for 6.

Ashington Rugby CC 28 points Wooler CC 3 points
