Debut for league side
Jul 15, 2015, 11:11 pm

Sunday 12th July saw 2 players from our club play for the full league team, first time in our history that this has happened; Adam Peacock made his debut along with Cory Milburn who has been in the team for over a season now. They were playing the North East Midweek League (League of Nations) at Bates Cottages CC.

Our league side batted first and scored a healthy 289 for 7, our lads Adam scored 4 and Cory 22, Liam Hindmarsh form Tillside scored a good 50 plus.

When bowling Cory clean bowled Ben O'Brien early on removing a dangerous batsman, however in entered an Indian (sorry no name) who played in the IPL along with 2 Australians, we kept chipping away with the wickets mainly through our spin attack, which eventually ended up the best way forward winning by approx 80 runs.

Both teams lose
Jul 15, 2015, 11:01 pm

 

Saturday 11th July saw the 1st team play at Blagdon CC; on a day when we expected a dust bowl for their bowling attack we were surprised to find a damp track. Things went from bad to worse when we lost Captain Chris Harwood with the very first ball of our innings, bowled by Senior and Rosser went not long after chasing a wide ball off the same bowler. Adam Peacock steadied the ship for a period before he tried to cut leg spin bowler Ali Clark and was out bowled for 22. Michael Adamson 13, Dean Hardy 7, Jay Little 6. It was left to the Milburn’s, father and son put on a partnership building our score before son Cory who was the dominant player in the partnership was out caught behind on 37 also out was Scott Maddison 13, Dean Greaves 6 leaving Paul Milburn on 40 not out. All out for 174, including 24 extras. Blagdon’s bowlers M. Senoir 4 for 34, D. Gibson 1 for 23, P. Johnson 2 for 28, Ali Clark 2 for 40.

Dean Greaves struck early in Bladgon’s run chase removing D. Gibson clean bowled and M. Clough LBW in a few balls. Adam Clark and Matty Senior build a partnership and the score, they carried a bit of luck Matty was dropped at gulley by Rosser when only scored a few runs and Clark was dropped by keeper Hardy, if only we took our catches Senior scored 61 and Clark 37. Leaving Concannon who bewildered our bowlers aiming one way and the ball going elsewhere (one call from the lads was are you batting with a rubix cube). Bladgon got the total for the loss of 6 wickets, our bolwers D. Greaves 4 for 41, C. Milburn 1 for 69, G. Whitworth 1 for 28.

Blagdon CC  29 points Ashington RCC 6 points.

Our 2nd X1 who were 2nd top was hosting top of the league Warenford CC in the Division 2 clash at the REC with run machine Brian Thompson in their ranks, Warenford batted first and yes you gassed it Brian scored 120 not out on a good wicket, R Thompson scored 38, they ended up with 212 for 6, our star bower was Bernie Tanney with 3 for 29. Our batting did not get going we were all out for 107, Trevor Elliott top scored with 30. We must mention that we were close to conceding this tie due to a large number of unavailable players, so a great effort by the lads and a big thank you to our stand in cover players for supporting the club.

Ashington RCC 4 points Warenford CC 30 points.


Rugger Boy Captain's League Under 21 Team
Jul 6, 2015, 12:48 pm

Cory Milburn captained the Northumberland League under 21 team in a game at Stocksfiled CC against the West Tyne League. Our league batted first and scored 211 off their 40 overs.

The West Tyne League team went to bat and they faced Cory in the first over he bowled a good spell of 5 overs taking 1 wicket for 14 runs. The bad weather which was forecasted came and there was thunder and lightning then a heavy down pour which ended the game at 23 overs with the West Tyne side on 112 for 6. That meant on run rate the Northumberland League won and went through to the final to be played at Whitburn CC they will either face the North East Premier League or the North Yorkshire & South Durham League both very strong sides.


Day to forget
Jul 6, 2015, 12:36 pm

Saturday 4th July, was a wet day, our 2nd team game was called off they were due to play Stobswood CC at their place, however the game was called off due to the weather and pitch conditions.

The 1st team were at home at the “REC” the ground was wet and it did not stop raining till mid-day and we spiked the outfield to remove and surface water, the problem was that water had run under our mobile covers and we were reduced to a 35 over game against the visitors GEMs.

We won the toss and elected to bowl, Cory bowled his normal aggressive spell and had the GEMs boys in trouble removing 2 wickets in 2 balls, S Ahmed was caught in the slips by Stu Rosser and the next ball he removed Balakrishnan LBW. H Mohammed and Hussian built a steady partnership scoring 27 and 36 respectively. The bowling change bringing on Scott Maddison to bowl his spin did the trick for the second week running he took 5 wickets for 31 runs, Cory Milburn 3 for 24, Trevor Elliot 1 for 27 and Adam Peacock 1 for 4. GEMs were all out 119 great effort, our lads went into the tea break happy.

Happiness did not last long when we started our run chase we had lost 5 wickets for only 11 runs Mukhtar did the damage taking the first 4 wickets in a good spell of seam and swing bowling our only partnership of any note was Jay Little 27 and Cory Milburn 20 along with Dean Greaves 14 we ended up all out for 101, a very very disappointing day at the office. GEMs bowling A Mukhtar 6 for 20, H Mohammed 1 for 30, T Alam 1 for 17, Z Shahid 2 for 29.

Ashington Rugby CC 6 points GEMs 26 points

Extending another record

Double win
Jun 29, 2015, 12:55 pm

Saturday 27th June (Fancy Dress Day) saw the Bomar make the short travel to the “REC” to play our 1st Team, on a warm day we won the toss and elected to bat, a big thumbs up from our players. Our captain Chris Harwood and Stu Rosser opened up and steadily built a partnership which moved on to 100 in no times at all and by the drinks break we had 121 on the board from 25 overs. Our first wicket down was Stu who scored 42 before being caught by Mathews off the bowling of Robinson.

In came Adam Peacock who has been our best bat this season and we all had high hopes for another big score, however out hopes were dashed when he last 4 balls for a duck he was caught behind by Mathews off the bowling of Mollon. Chris had breezed past 50 and looked in good nick and was very disappointed to be out 5 runs short of his century, fantastic knock which put the team in a great position to push on And this we did Michael Adamson score 20, Dean Hardy hit a fine 35 not out, Jay Little a quick fire 18 in our total of 254 for 6. Bomar’s wicket takers were C. Mollon 3 for 58, L. Bessford 1 for 35, D. Robinson 1 for 48 and S. Thornton 1 for 37.

In reply Bomar were shuck up when opening Bowler Cory Milburn hit Colin Thornton on the helmet with his very first delivery, not long later was Colin caught by Peacock off Cory Milburn for 6. He struck again not long after when he dismissed Purvis clean bowled for 5. This brought S. Thain and N. Straker to the crease and they built a good partnership before the loss of Straker LBW by Maddison on 29 and the same bowler removed Bomar’s main man Thain for 62 caught by Whitworth on the boundary, Thain played his normal game and hit some very clean boundaries in his total, the Rugger boys were pleased to see the back of him as he looked set for a big score, once he went the Rugger boys kept taking wickets regularly and the bowler who did the damage was Scott Maddison with his spin bowling , he took 5 for 21, Cory Milburn 2 for 28, James Richards 2 for 42 and Graham Whitworth 1 for 38. Bomar were all out for 161 the Rugger Boys winning by 93 runs, this win lifts us to second place in the Premier League.

Ashington Rugby CC 30 Points Bomarsund CC 6 points.

In the reverse fixture our 2nd team was away to Bomarsund 2nds, Bomar won the toss and elected to bat they had former Rugger boy Graeme Pattinson opening the bat and he continued his good recent form hitting 64 and Chris Scott another former Rugger boy hitting 33. Our bowling our main wicket taker was captain David Wanless Jnr who took 3 for 29. Bomar finished their 40 over on 178 for 7.

Our run chase was steady with captain Wanless Jnr top scoring with 49 not out with the other lads chipping in we eventually won the game scoring 179 for 5 a great win chasing a good score, well done lads that gives us a double over our near neighbours. It also stabilises our second place in Division 2.

Bomarsund CC 5 points Ashington Rugby CC 28 points.
