Mixed fortunes
Jul 27, 2016, 12:57 pm


Saturday 23rd July, our first team entertain Kirkley CC at the REC, for once we won the toss and elected to bat of a good looking hard wicket. On a day when we were without 4 key players Lewis Tanney, Matty Tanney, James Richards and Scott (The wicket Burglar) Maddison. Stu Rosser was caught and bowled on 2 early on and then we lost Dean Hardy for 1 soon after, David Dent stemmed the flow of wickets for a while before he was out on 20, with the total on 30 for 3 wickets.

This brought together Adam Peacock and Michael Adamson, they played very sensibly early on playing and leaving when required, after they got themselves in the score started to pick up with some glorious boundary’s from both players, Adam especially looked in great form, the next wicket down was Michael he was on 47 with the partnership score of 170 runs, he played a great foil to Adam who continued to play the ball around the outfield with aplomb. Adam was eventually out for 124 a fantastic effort, I am sure his girlfriend will come back as his lucky charm if he plays like that when she is watching.

Chris Harwood added to the score with his 23 not out leaving us with a total of 260 for 7 off our 50 overs.

Kirkley’s run chased started poorly with Cory Milburn taking a wicket early on and his opener was out for only 13, this however brought the youngster E. Ragibir to the wicket, he was hit early on by Cory who did not feel comfortable bowling at him in case he hurt the youngster and this knocked us sideways as we lost our way for a number of overs. The youngster who no doubt will be a start for the future was eventually out for 17 after occupying the crease for a long time. Kirkley’s star was Andrew (Beefy) Storey who plundered 94 before falling to the bowling of David Dent, once Beefy was out we started to take wickets on a regular basics. Kirkley were eventually all out for 197 with 1 over to spare.

Our bowling who took wickets were Dean Greaves 1 wicket or 33 runs, Cory Milburn 5 wickets for 55 runs, David Dent 4 wickets for 45 runs. 

Ashington Rugby CC win by 63 runs and take 30 points and Kirkley CC 7 points.

This win kept the Rugger boys at the top of the league with 29 points gap to 2nd place Tillside CC who also had a good win and collected maximum points.  

Our 2nd team had to conceded their match away at Tillside CC who were top of the league and we were sitting in 2nd place, we tried in vain but could not get a team out we could only muster 6 players which is not a bad effort when you consider, the 2nd team had 5 players not available and the 1st team took 3 players to cover the players they had missing. We also had the issue of one of the rugby players wedding and a number of our players we had signed on for cover were at the wedding altogether we had 17 players not available for whatever reason. Apologies to Tillside we did try and we would have travelled with the 8 players but we could not find 2 more.

Rugger boys take the points in a top of the table clash
Jul 17, 2016, 7:52 pm

Saturday 16th July saw the Rugger lads take the long journey to Etal to play Tillside CC, with both clubs sharing top spot of the Northumberland Premier League with 245 apiece. We lost the toss and Tillside elected to bat we opened up with Dean Greaves and James Richards and as Tillside normally do run quick singles however they lost their 1st wicket of Liam Hindmarsh run out when they pushed a ball into point only for Cory Milburn to pick up and launch a rocket throw back and hit the only stump he could see leaving Hindmash 1 yard short to the jubilation of the Rugger boys. Tillside took the score to 39 before losing their next wicket to Richards, we kept on taking wickets at a regular intervals along with some tight bowling, Tillside last 4 wickets fell for only 1 run leaving them all out on 74 after 34.4 overs.

What a fantastic effort by our bowlers and fielders, our bowling; Dean Greaves 8 overs, 2 wickets for 21 runs, James Richards 13 overs, 3 wickets for 28 runs, Scott (The Wicket Burglar)Maddison 10 overs, 1 wickets for 15 runs and Cory Milburn 4.4 overs, 3 wickets for 8 runs.

We knew we could not give Tillside an early wicket to boost their confidence; however M. Tanney fell for 5 with only 17 on the board chasing a wide delivery. M. Adamson came in at 3 and he held it together with captain Harwood picking off the odd run but the main point was not giving a chance, M. Adamson was caught on 8 with 46 on the board. Harwood’s new partner was A. Peacock with the score on 48 Harwood edged a ball to slip who took a magnificent one handed catch. Next man in was L. Tanney he and Peacock saw us home for the loss of only 3 wickets after only 27 overs, Peacock 19 not out and Lewis Tanney 14 not out.

Brilliant win for the club this win saw us go 29 points clear at the top of the league.

Must give big praise the tea by far the best tea we have had for a long time, big thank you to the tea ladies and Tillside CC for a game played in a good spirt between two clubs who have great respect for each other.

Tillside CC 1 point and Ashington Rugby CC 30 points.

Our 2nd team entertained Tynemouth CC in the division 2 clash at the REC, we won the toss and elected to bowl, Craig Jobson and captain Ryan Pringle removed both openers with only 7 runs on the board, before Hodgson and Whiting put on 39 runs, when Whiting fell on 23, we took regular wickets and when Hodgson was out for 26 with the score on 71 and 6 wickets down. Tynemouth was eventually all out for 74 after 33. 3 overs.

Our bowlers who took wickets were; C. Jobson 5 overs, 1 wicket for 23 runs, R. Pringle 7 overs, 4wickets for 26 runs, T. Elliott 10 overs, 2 wickets for 20 runs, D. Wanless Snr 9.3 overs, 1 wickets for 14 runs and L. Dodds  2 overs, 1 wicket for 4 runs.

 Our run chase started off badly losing Jay Little in the 6th over with the score on 11 and Jay on 5, Ryan Pringle was the next wicket out in the 9th over with 16 on the board, before Stu Rosser with 53 not out and Kevin Hetherington not out on 27 saw us home, after 32 overs.

Saturday 9th July saw Corbridge CC 1st team travel to the REC for a Premier League fixture, it was a wet damp day and during the week we had a tremendous thunder storm which only lasted for 45 on Thursday but that was enough to put quite a bit of waiter under our mobile covers.

We lost the toss and was obviously pout into bat and a wicket that did quite a bit for the bowlers, we only had 2 batsmen who got into double figures they were Matty Tanney with a quick fire 14 and Adam Peacock who batted very well for his 52 before falling caught and bowled to spinner Fowler. Our innings only lasted 31.5 overs and we posted 117 all out, we thought that was not enough with the wicket drying out. There bowlers who did the damage was New Zealander Cox with 5 wickets and Garrett with 3.

When Corbridge went to bat we knew we need early wickets and taken quite quickly to put the pressure onto the batters, and this is exactly what we did, they had 5 batsmen who got into double figures including the prize wicket of Fowler who posted 46 before being caught by Peacock off Cory Millburn’s bowling this helped to change the game into our favour. They ended up all out on 111 off 44.1 overs. The relief on all the players faces when Cory (captain) took the final wicket was clear to see. Our Bowling who took wickets, D. Greaves 10 overs, 3 wickets for 24 runs, J. Richards 12 overs, 2 wickets for 12 runs, C. Milburn 9.1 overs, 4 wickets for 26 runs and S. Maddison  7 overs, 1 wicket for 17 runs.

Ashington Rugby CC 26 points and Corbridge CC 6 points.

Our 2nd team travel to Corbdrige for their Division 2 fixture on another damp and wet day our team lost the toss and was put into bat, top scorer was Jay Little with 34, captain Ryan Pringle 26 not out, Keven Hetherington 17, Trevor Elliott 13 and Stu Rosser 12, we ended up 130 for 9 from our 40 overs.

In reply Corbridge scored 96 in 34.1 overs our bowlers who did the damage was, D. Wanless Snr 7 overs, 4 wickets for 14 runs, R. Pringle 10 overs, 3 wickets for 21 runs, L. Dodd’s 3.1 overs, 2 wickets for 7 runs and T. Elliott 6 overs, 1 wicket for 26 runs. Great result.

Greaves Outstanding in debut
Jul 7, 2016, 1:28 pm

Sunday 3rd July we had 2 players in the league team who played at Backworth CC and the away team was West Tyne League, our 2 players were Adam Peacock and 50 year old Dean Greaves the oldest swinger in town and possibly the oldest player to make his debut for the league side. We batted first and scored 208 for 9.

When we bowled Mr Greaves had too much in his locker with his swing bowling doing the damage, he opened up the bowling and did what he has done for nearly 20 years for our club, bowled tight and took wickets in his 8 over spell he took 7 for 31, including 2 wicket in 2 balls. The Northumberland League team won by over 100 runs.

Dean Greaves man of the match (still some life left in the old dog yet)

Weather helped us this time

Saturday 2nd July our 1st team travel to neighbours Ulgham CC, still without our Captain Chris Harwood and Vice-Captain Cory Milburn. This was a day with rain showers throughout the day and was a day to try to dodge the rain, we won the toss and put Ulgham in to bat and in no time at all the covers were on the off and back on again, a total of three times. We took 2 early wickets and then Ulgham batsmen dug in, we were happy with the runs conceded with only 50 odd coming off the first 25 overs. D. Campbell 32, R. Haygarth 42 and N. Dodds 27 not out pushed their score on to 155 for 8 after the 50 overs were bowled. D. Greaves 13 over 0 for 19, James Richards 13 overs 3 for 32, David Dent 3 for 36.

Our run chase got off to a bad start losing both openers M. Tanney for 5 and D. Dent for 8, in came in Adam Peacock stand in captain for the day and he produced a captain’s innings he batted well slowly building his score the eventually finished with 62 not out and seeing us home to an important win, Adam was helped with 29 from Lewis Tanney11 for Michael Adamson and 12 not out for Dean Hardy. This was a much needed win, and with the news that close rivals Tillside CC and GEMS CC were both rained off, this helped our club to go top of the Northumberland Premier League, a momentous occasion for the club this is the first time this has happened in the 34 year history of our club.

Ulgham CC 5 points and Ashington Rugby CC 29 points

Our 2nd team game was at the Rec they entertained Embleton CC we won the toss and put them into bat and we did very well bowling them out for 91, C Thorp top scored for the Embleton with 30. Our main bowlers were C. Jobson 3 for 19 and David Wanless Snr 5 for 30. We lost 1 wickets chasing and eventually posted 92 for 1, David Wanless Jnr top scored on 42 not out and support by S. Henderson who was also not out.

Ashington Rugby CC 30 points and Embleton CC 0 points.

What went wrong
Jul 7, 2016, 12:54 pm

Saturday 25th June our 1st team welcome Blagdon Park CC visit the REC on a very wet day, we sat around for a long time due to the torrential rain, eventually we got started, the game was reduced to 25 overs and we lost the toss and was put into bat. We did not shower ourselves in glory as we were all out for 71 with only Dean Hardy and Michael Adamson who scored 17 and 16 respectively, shot selection was not the best and you only get out of the game what you put in. Blagdon easily chased down the poor target with the loss of only 2 wickets. This was a very bad result for the club who were looking to keep up their push for top spot.

Ashington Rugby CC 1 point and Blagdon Park CC 30 points

Our 2nd team game was called off with Stobswoods CC wicket not fit due to the heavy rain.

Stobswood CC 5 points and Ashington Rugby CC 5 points
