Looking for a venue for Cricket Nets
Nov 20, 2016, 2:33 pm

Due to the number of members who said they would not attend nets starting 1st or 2nd week in January, with the time slots which were the same as last year 8pm till 9pm and 9pm till 10pm alternative weeks, for approximately 13 weeks.

We are looking for a venue to have around 6 to 8 nets starting around the last week in February, let your chairman know if have an idea of a facility.

We could use Ashington Sports Centre on a Sunday afternoon around 3pm till 5pm is an option as long as we have enough members willing to attend and the slots are still avaiable.

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.

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.

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.
