1st Team v Blagdon Park CC Saturday 5/8/2017

Blagdon won the toss and unsurprisingly after the weather we've had and with a poor forecast asked us to bat first. Dent opened the batting with himself and Matthew Tanney. The score had moved to 18 when Matthew was caught behind for 1.

Dent and Paul Milburn took the score to 35 before Paul was caught behind for 9 which brought Lewis Tanney to the crease. The pair put on 71 for the 3rd wicket which was eventually broken by Blagdon captain Gibson after a rain delay when Tanney was bowled for a well made 35.

Dent carried his bat through the innings cautiously compiling a well-made 67 noy out from 115 balls including 5 fours and 1 six which was an excellent captains knock under difficult circumstances with several senior batsmen not available on the day.

Gibson 3-39 and Clark 4-32 were the pick of the Blagdon bowlers. 

Unfortunately the 2nd innings never got underway as just after the tea break the heavens opened, only after the covers had been on and off 3 times during the first innings. Both captains decided at 5:45pm after over an hour of heavy rain that there wasn't much chance of a result and shook hands on a respectful draw. 

Ashington Rugby CC 8 points Blagdon Park CC 9 points

1st team are away to Warkworth next Saturday looking to avenge a 20 run loss earlier in the season. 

After not playing in the previous weeks, ARCC 2nds travelled to Corbridge knowing that 30pts was a must if they were going to push for promotion to Division 1.


On a beautiful sunny day, ARCC 2nds won the toss and elected to bat first. With the plan to post a total over 200, the ARCC 2nds batsmen set about the task. Again Mr consistent Kevin Hetherington top scored with 64 not out supported by useful contributions from Jonny Richards (40), Dean Hardy (20) in posting a total of 204-8 in 40 overs.


In reply, Corbridge struggling to cope with the accurate bowling of the ARCC 2nds bowlers and eventually were all out for 60 in 25 overs. Jonny Acaster 6-2-10-4, Craig Jobson 9-3-17-3 and Davey Wanless Snr 10-1-33-2 all bowled extremely well.

This was the result that ARCC 2nds needed knowing that tougher encounters were coming, starting with Bomarsund 2nds @ home. 


Mixed fortunes

Corbridge away Saturday 29/07/17

Having won the toss skipper David Dent had no hesitation in batting first on what looked like a decent day for it, on a green deck. We got off to a slow but steady start reaching 56-3 after 18 overs.

Openers Callum Milburn and Adam Peacock scoring 13 and 9 respectively. After losing Little for 1, Dent was joined at the crease by Lewis Tanney and both started to raise the scoring rate before Dent was caught behind for 34. Lewis eventually fell for a fine 67 which included 9 fours.

Parsons 11, Paul Milburn 8, Johnny Richards 9 and Ricky Gibson 13 all contributed to a competitive 196-10 in the 49th over.

A Dover was the pick of Corbridge bowlers with figures of 3-32off his 13 overs.
In reply Corbridge made a good start reaching 40-2 after 10 overs.

Although wickets fell at regular intervals our bowlers couldn't dislodge opener Chris Fowler who went on to complete a match winning century and finished 103 not out which included 10 fours from 130 balls.

Our wicket takers were Dent 4-60 and Lewis Tanney 4-56. Our bowlers did well to take the game into the 46th over but we ultimately fell short on the day. 

Ashington Rugby CC 7 points Corbridge CC 29 points.

With the weather looking fair, ARCC 2nds looked to get back into the grove after the postponement the previous week with a tough game against Embleton. Unfortunately Embleton conceded the fixture on the morning of the game due to being unable to field a team meaning that for the 2nd week ARCC 2nds had no game.

Ashington Rugby CC 30 points

1st Lose in Wilson Cup Final
Jul 26, 2017, 8:41 pm


Tuesday 25th July 2017 at Benwell Hill Cricket Club.


Having lost the toss we were asked to have a bat on what looked like a firm slightly green wicket which was expected due to the amount of rain we've had recently. We got off to a slow but steady start due to some decent bowling from the opposition; this all changed in the 6th over Matthew Tanney was bowled for 4. Dent went 1st ball of the next over for 20 with the score on 26. After 10 overs we were reasonably well placed at 39-2 with Lewis Tanney and Callum Milburn looking set. Unfortunately any momentum that was gained quickly stopped dead with the fall of wickets as Lewis went for 7 parsons for 4 and Callum for a well-made 27. This left Paul Milburn and Stu Rosser to rebuild for a couple of overs before Milburn fell for 16. Stu finished unbeaten on 7 leaving us about 20 runs short at 95-6 after 20 overs. J. Warner was the pick of Whickham’s bowlers with 4-30 off his 5 overs.


We would need early wickets which didn't materialise with Warner getting off to a quick start with 2 6s in the 2nd over. Whickham made steady progress reaching 69-1 in the 12 over. 2 quick wickets in the 13th over from Lewis Tanney with a run out and a Matthew Tanney wicket in the next 3 overs left Whickham on 88-5 after 17 overs. The game was won in the next over when Warner completed a man of the match performance by hitting the winning runs and ending up 58 not out. The Tanney brothers being the pick with 3 wickets between them.


Congratulations to Whickham who were the better team on the day.


Big thank you to Benwell Hill for allowing our club to play at your ground.  


Thanks from skipper David Dent go to all the lads who have played there part in a good cup run his season. We have lots of potential in the squad so there's no reason why with a little good fortune we can't go 1 better next season.

1st Win Wilson Cup North
Jul 20, 2017, 7:38 pm


Having won the toss captain David Dent asked Warkworth CC to bat first on what looked like a good wicket that would stay consistent throughout the whole 40 overs of the game. Having decided to open the bowling with Dean Greaves and off spinner Scott Maddison we got off to a steady start thanks to some tidy bowling. Greaves returned figures of 3-17 and Maddison 1-21 of their 5 overs which left the visitors on 41-4 at the halfway stage of their innings.


Lewis Tanney and Dent himself then replaced the opening bowlers and continued there good work finishing with figures of 3-37 and 3-27 respectively. Warkworth CC were all out for 113 in the 20 over.


In reply Dent and Matthew Tanney fell cheaply leaving us 4-2 after 2 overs. Callum Milburn and Lewis Tanney then fought hard to rebuild the innings steadily with some excellent running between the wickets. At 39-2 after 10 overs we had fallen behind the run rate but this was when Callum took the game by the scruff of the neck and along with Tanney took us to within touching distance of victory. Lewi fell for 29 leaving us needing 12 to win off 4 overs. Callum finished 72 not out from 50 balls which included 5 4s and 3 6s to see us safely into the final with18 balls to spare.


The Wilson Cup Final is to be played at Benwell Hill CC on Tuesday 25th July 6pm start against league new comers Wickham CC.
