Saturday 21st July saw our first team travel to Benwell & Wallbottle in a key game for the club. Our captain had stood down and with David Dent the vice-captain still injured Cory Milburn took the reins. We lost the toss and were put into bat on a wicket which behaved with a lot of indifferent bounce. Matty Tanney and Callum Milburn made a steady start, Matty out for 14 and Callum given out LBW on 20 when he hit the ball down leg side. After these only Mark Lawrence on 19 and James Richards 18 not out made double figures and really poor score was posted of 107 all out.

Benwell bowlers S. Wotherspoon 2 wickets for 25 runs, M. Brown 3 for 29, J. Turnbull 2 for 21, S. Reed 2 for 21 and M. Tomlinson 1 for 3.

Our opening bowlers had to do some damage early on to give us any chance Cory struck early on removing Bertram and Reed both clean bowled, however Benwell’s M. Tomlinson 47 not out and Wotherspoon 43 steadied the ship and Benwell made it over the line winning by 6 wickets.

Our bowlers D. Greaves 0 wickets for 19 runs, Cory Milburn 2 for 13, M. Lawrence 1 for 46, J. Richards 0 for 30, M. Tanney 1 for 5.

This defeat dropped our 1st team down to fourth from bottom which is not good as there is a playoff with the third bottom team playing the third top from the league below and what makes matters worse is that Benwell & Wallbottle are the team third bottom so they closed the gap on us to 70 points.

Benwell & Wallbottle 30 points Ashington Rugby CC 3 points.

Our Second team entertained Embelton 1st at the REC looking to pick themselves up from the defeat by league leaders away at Kirkley last week. We won the toss and elected to bat captain Rosser started off well with his partner Dean Hardy ticking the score over. Rosser out for 36 Michael Adamson scored a tidy 31, we found it hard to get away their attack which bowled good lines and lengths. We ended up 143 for 8 off our 40 overs. E Thorpe was the pick of the Embelton bowlers taking 3 wickets for 17 runs.

Embelton start the run chase with gusto however that was there down fall the opener hit young Owen Mason for a 4 over his head second ball however the third ball he was out bowled, Owen bowled a tidy spell taking 3 wickets for 29 runs in his 5 overs not bad for a 12 year old. Tome More took 3 for 32 in his 10 overs and Trevor Elliott took 3 for 7 off his short spell.

Embelton finished all out on 100 the Rugby boy winning by 43 runs.

Ashington Rugby 29 points CC points Embelton CC 6 points.

Disappointing day for both teams

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.
