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

Very poor day for 1st team
Aug 19, 2016, 6:47 pm

Our 1st team travelled to Backworth CC for a top of the table clash, we were without our two pace bowlers Cory Milburn on holiday and James Richards still out injured and Paul Milburn was also injured, we won the toss and elected to bat. The wicket did quite a bit and Backworth bowled well, and we did not bat well, not a single player scored 20 runs, C. Harwood 19, Callum Milburn 16 and Andrew (Beefy) Storey 16 we were all out for 99 runs in only 25.3 overs, where was the application!!!!!!!!!!!

Backworth easily chased our total down in 26.3 overs only losing 1 wicket, Alan Robson top scored for Backworth he played well for his 65 not out.

Very bad day for the team 0 points, this left us just 1 point clear at the top of the league with 3 teams closing the gap.

Our 2nds entertained Backworth CC 2nds we scored 93 for 9 and Backworth reached their target for the loss of only 4 wickets.  

Back to winning ways

Saturday 6th August 2016 our first team entertain Berwick CC at the REC with still 3 key players missing due to holidays and injury, we lost the toss on a hot day and the wicket looked like a road you guessed it we ended up bowling. One good bit of news was the new signing of Andrew (Beefy) Storey a quality wicket keeper batsman who signed from Kirkley CC a great addition to the team. 

We removed early wickets and kept putting pressure on Berwick and it wasn’t until M. Emery and R. Davison came together did they occupy the crease, M. Emery score 42 and Davison 26, once they were out we contained the scoring but we just couldn’t get them all out they finished 140 for 9.

Our bowlers who took wickets Dean Greaves 13 overs 3 wickets for 22 runs, Cory Milburn 13 overs 2 wickets for 42 runs and Scott (The Wicket Burglar) Maddison 12 overs 4 wickets for 25 runs.

Our openers David Dent and Matty Tanney set off like and run away train hitting poor balls to the boundary our 1st wicket fell at 85 when Matty Tanney was out on 31 he hit 5 fours in his total our next wicket fell with the score on 99 and that was Adam Peacock out for 13, in came Paul Milburn who batted through with David Dent who looked in great nick ended up not out on 64 with 12 fours and Paul not out for 20 with 3 fours the game was finished in the 28th over with 21 overs to spare. 140 was not enough on the great batting track with a very fast outfield.

Ashington Rugby CC 29 points and Berwick CC 3 points.

Our 2nd team was away to Monkseaton CC with a weakened team we batted first and hit 152 Kevin Hetherington top scored with 31. Monkseaton was out for 82 our bolwers Ryan Pringle 3 wickets for 9 runs, David Wanless Snr 4 wickets for 12 runs and David Wanless Jnr  3 wickets for 19 runs, it was good to see our team getting back to winning ways it has been a tough 5 weeks with as many players being away on holiday’s.

Saturday 30th July 2016 saw our first team travel to Warkworth CC with still 4 key players missing due to holidays, injury and a wedding, we won the toss and elected to bat and things were going good until Matty Tanney ran himself out with the score on 38, his opening partner David Dent was next out with the total on 44 both openers scoring 21 each. We lost 2 more wickets quickly with the score on 68, it wasn’t till father and son Paul and Cory Milburn came together that some stability came to our innings, Cory also gave his dad something to think over when he smashed a ball back at his dad who was at the other end, he hit him in the side and knocked his dad off his feet, when the game got going again after a break to let Paul gather himself to continue. Cory was the next one out on 26 with our total on 120 we lost regular wickets and Paul lost partners he was last on out on 50 with our total on 157.

They started the chase with 2 wickets down in 5 overs with 17 on the board, they had a partnership of 50 before we took a few more wickets. Cory Milburn bowled very well and quickly and caused Warkworth batters all sorts of problems, we were just to light with our bowling and we didn’t have enough on the day and Warkworth ended up victors on the day in the 48 over with 7 wickets down, Billy Pringle not out on  34 and C. Glass on 18.  

Our bowlers who took wickets Dean Greaves 13 overs 1 wicket for 24 runs, Cory Milburn 13 overs 5 wicket for 39 runs and Trevor Elliott 10 overs 1 wicket for 22 runs.

Warkworth CC 28 points and Ashington Rugby CC 6 points.

A weak 2nd team lost to Bomar.

Mixed fortunes

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.
