Cricket Square 27/10/2016
Oct 30, 2016, 11:40 am

Our cricket club invests in our facilities and the evidence is here to be seen, on 27th October our Groundsman gave our square its first cut since the end of season renovations and then followed this up with an aeration .

We have used our germinations sheets on the square and moved them around three times to cover all of out 15 strips, we find that the germination sheets allows for the grass to come through quicker which is what we wanted before the first frost hits us.

Our groundsman is very pleased with the results and how the square looks, he said it is the best grass coverage we had ever had.

Greaves Special Award
Oct 24, 2016, 9:25 pm


Northumberland League Awards Dinner at Newcastle Falcons on Saturday 22nd October saw Dean Greaves get a special award for his fantastic effort bowling for the league team against the West Tyne League at Backworkth CC. He opened the bowling and took 7 for 31 off 9 overs at one stage he was 7 for 18. It was also his debut for the league team not bad for a 50 year old.  

First team Captain Chris Harwood collect the Premier League runners up trophy and Cory Milburn the same for the R.E. Wood Shield Midweek team.

We had 19 members of our club at the event the most from any club, well done lads, what would it be like if we actually won something, there is always next year.

Title chase falls at last hurdle
Sep 20, 2016, 8:15 pm


Saturday 17th September saw our first team sitting one point behind leaders Tillside CC in the Northumberland Premier League, we entertained Ulgham CC at the REC, they elected to bat and we wanted early wickets and that is what happened our bowlers bowled very well indeed.

Cory Milburn bowled quick and took 1 wicket for 11 runs in 8 overs, Dean Greaves did his normal swing causing all sorts of problems he took 1 wickets for 6 runs from 6 overs, David Dent was moving the ball with his swing and Ulgham could not come to terms with this he took 4 wickets for 21 runs from his 7.3 overs, James Richards bowled tight and his 6 overs went for 13 runs, he took 5 wickets in 6 overs. Ulgham’s innings was all over in 27.3 overs ending up all out for 61. Fantastic effort.

Our run chase started badly losing captain Harwood early for 0 runs with our total sitting at 4 runs, this brought together Paul Milburn in at 3 with opener David Dent who both played just what we needed hitting the bad ball and playing the good balls back. D. Dent hit 31 not out including 5 fours, P. Milburn hit 25 not out he hit 3 fours and 1 six, we ended up hitting 65 in 16.4 overs picking up the maximum 30 points.

We could do no more, however we went from being pleased with our efforts to find out that Kirkley CC only took 8 men to their match with Tillside CC, who made short work of the Kirkley 8 men. Tillside also picking up 30 maximum points which meant they won the league in the last game by 1 point, we ended up runners up for the first time in our clubs history however we felt we missed out on the big prize.

Blagdon hold up bonus points
Sep 20, 2016, 8:14 pm


Saturday 10th September, our first team travelled to Blagdon Park looking for revenge for earlier in the season, once again we lost the toss was put into bat on a wet wicket. The worst possible start saw D. Dent lose his wicket on the second ball of the innings. This brought P. Milburn to the crease with Captain C. Harwood they stayed together for 15 overs before P. Milburn was out LBW for 18 with the score on 78. Next in was A. Peacock and he did what he does best get in and score runs, he took his time but then he started to build an innings alongside our captain they pushed the score on to 156 before C. Harwood was out for 70 great knock. Adam kept on playing shots when required he lost 4 partners in no time at all, until Vice captain Cory Milburn came to the crease, he lost Adam as a partner when he was on 95 and Cory hit a quick fire 31, leaving us all out with only 4 balls left of the innings with the score on 256.

D. Gibson bowled well for them he took 4 wickets for 23 runs in his 13 overs. Blagdon’s run chase didn’t really get going they did not really look to attack the run chase, they were happy not taking any changes which frustrated the Rugger boys as we need wickets for picking up extra bonus points but that did not happen. Blagdon ended up 167 for 6, and 60 plus of those would have come when we moved everyone in close and any edge went to the boundary.

Our bowlers who took wickets were; C. Milburn 12 overs, 3 maidens, 2 wickets for 39 runs, J. Richards 13 overs, 5 maidens, 2 wickets for 47 runs, S. Maddison 13 overs, 5 maidens, 1 wicket for 28 runs.

Blagdon Park CC 8 points and Ashington Rugby CC 28 points

Good win

Saturday 27th August saw GEMS visit the REC for a first team game, we lost the toss and GEMS elected to bat, they started off slowly but not losing a wicket, the wicket eventually came in the 11 over; the main run scorers for GEMS were J. Mirza who scored 59, A. Javad 45 and T. Alam 31, finishing up 200 for 9, we only had 1 delivery at the last batsman, before the 50 overs were up.

Our bowlers who took wickets were; D. Greaves 13 overs, 4 maidens, 2 wickets for 28 runs, C. Milburn 13 overs, 1maiden, 2 wickets for 54 runs,  J. Richards 10 overs, 2 maidens, 2 wickets for 46 runs, D. Dent 7 overs,0 maidens, 4 wickets for 33 runs.

Peacock fell in the 17th over for 9 with the score on 76. Opening bat D. Dent played well for his 50 with 11 fours before being bowled, in came the two Tanney brothers Lewis and Mathew, with a lot riding on them putting together a partnership which they did with gusto Mathew was next out for 28 in the 26th over with the score on 168, Lewis had batted brilliantly for his 61 not out hitting 7 – fours and 2 – sixes and he saw us home with A. Storey who was 8 not out in the 29th over, 201 for 5 wickets.
