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

Great win for 1st Team and a walkover for the 2nds

Saturday 18th August saw our 1st team travel to Warkworth CC, on an overcast day we lost the toss and were put into bat. We lost opener Callum Milburn LBW for 1 to a shooter which hit him just above the foot. Adam Peacock came to the crease to partner Matty Tanney they just started to build a partnership when Adam was given out LBW to a big edge onto his pads for 17. Midge Adamson was out soon after for 0, we then lost Matty Tanney for 37. At this stage we were 60 for 4 wickets not a great start. Then the turning session of our innings saw Lewis Tanney and Captain Cory Milburn steady the ship and slowly started to build a healthy partnership, they played really well running quick singles and hitting some powerful boundaries, two boundaries of note were to massive sixes from Cory one straight over the sight screen and one over square leg.

Lewis was the next wicket to fall on 25, Cory was eventually out stumped on 49 looking to push the score on with a couple of overs left. Our innings was over with us being all out for 174 which looked a good score on that wicket, probably 50 more than we thought we would get after being 4 wickets down early on.

Warkworth CC bowlers M. Clark 0 wickets for 42 runs, A. Hall 1 for 31, P. Burnett 3 for 26, M. Renfrey 4 for 35 and W. Pringle 2 for 24.

Warkworths run chase didn’t start good for them our opening bowlers Dean Greaves and Cory Milburn bowled a great tight opening spell after 13 overs Warkworths score was 24 runs but they had lost 2 wickets to Greaves. This brought Adam Hall to the grease with opener R. Wilson they pushed the score along to 82 for 2 before they lost a couple of quick wickets. Wilson was bowled by Mark Lawrence and Hall LBW to Richards. Wickets then fell quickly afterwards, the score moved to 91 for 5 off 36 overs and then 106 for 6 off 40 overs and a big collapse saw the score turn to 112 for 9 off 45 overs eventually the innings was over with Warkworths score standing at 123 all out.

Our bowlers Dean Greaves 2 wickets for 23 runs, Cory Milburn 0 for 14 runs, James Richards 2 for 45 runs, Mark Lawrence 3 for 20 runs, Matty Tanney 0 for 6 and Scot Maddison 3 for 10 runs.

Great effort by the team special praise to Lewis Tanney and Cory Milburn for their partnership which held our innings together at a crucial stage of the game they put on over 70 runs.

A much needed win which saw us go above Corbridge CC in the league table by 5 points and leave us sitting in 7th from top or 6th from bottom and saw us 65 points clear of 3rd Bottom Benwell and Walbottle, with three games left in the season.

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.

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.

Saturday 4th August saw our 1st team travel to Chopwell to play GEMS, we lost the toss and GMS elected to bat on their small ground. Our opening bowlers Cory Milburn and Dean Greaves made some early inroads removing three of the top four batsmen however A Mukhtar made 41, J Mirza 46, Z Shahid 78 and J Qureshi 47 helped push their score along to 254 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.
