Saturday 16th May, saw the 1st team travel to Tillside CC for their Premier League clash. We won the toss and elected to bat on a good looking wicket, we got off to a slow but steady start seeing off the first 10 overs, only to see our first wicket fall with the score on 20, M. Adamson was on 10 before being bowled by Birkett. That brought Adam Peacock to the wicket with Captain Chris Harwood, the building process started again and the score was moving along nicely when Harwood fell on 17 another 2 wickets fell quickly and it was not looking so good. Vice-Captain Cory Milburn came to the crease with an important job to do with Adam. They batted very well together and playing some fine shots when required and hitting the bat ball to the boundary. Adam blasted his way to 86 before falling to a catch in the deep, Cory kept his head with a mature display of bating in his 61 not out with 3 huge sixes. We ended up 231 for 6 off our 50 overs.

We had our team talk and it was all about chipping away at the wickets bowling tight lines and not giving anything away in the field and that is what we did great fielding display on the day. Tillside CC always put up a great team display and we knew it would be a great effort to bowl them out as that is what the target was. We took a few early wickets then Tillside built a few partnerships A. Reed with 30, L. Hindmarsh with 36 and J. Birkett who hit a fine 51 with some big sixes included in that knock. Tillside batted well but were eventually all out on 191, our bowling Dean Greaves 2 for 31, James Richards 2 for 39, Scott Maddison 2 for 42, Graham Whitworth 2 for 39 and Cory Milburn 1 for 31. All round great team display we won by 40 runs with 3 overs to spare. This win lift us one place to 6th in the league.

Tillside CC 7 points Ashington RCC 30 points

Our 2nd team entertain Whitley Bay in a Division 2 match at the REC. Whitley Bay won the toss and elected to bat they scored 141 for 6, G. Ord 34, J. Douglas 37, our top bowler was R. Pringle who took 3 for 17. We chased the score down with L. Lavery and S. Rosser getting us off to a good start and Stu Rosser stayed there until the end scoring 70 not out, we got home with the loss of only 3 wickets. Great display from the Rugger Boys.

Point of note Stu Rosser has now turned his hand to cricket following the end of the rugby season where he coaches and plays for Ashington Rugby 1st team.

Rugger boys put out the Flames
May 11, 2015, 1:03 pm

Saturday 9th May, saw both our club 1st and 2nd teams playing Blue Flames.

Weather conditions were poor on Friday and Saturday morning, none stop rain, our covers did a great job keeping the wicket dry. Our problem was areas being soaking wet on the outfield; we used our aerator spiking the affected areas. This did the job and the 1st team eventually got going 1 hour late playing a 40 over match, things don’t change with us as we lost another toss and was put into bat. We lost a wicket early on with a smart one handed catch behind square. This brought Adam Peacock to the wicket to bat with Captain Chris Harwood, we needed a partnership built and that is what the pair did to great aplomb, both passed 50 with some great shots all around ground, when Chris was eventually out on 55 caught by Amin off Myers slow spin bowling, we lost Adam soon after just short of his hundred on 95 also caught on the square boundary by Ali of the bowling of Myers, our total was 162 for 3. The batting order was reorganised and we lost quick wickets leaving the Rugger boys all out for 183 off 38.2 overs. The damage was done by the Flames slow bowlers F. Amin 5 wickets for 22 runs and C. Myers 4 for 19.

After the break the team had a pep talk about the importance of taking early wickets and not letting them build any partnerships. We got off to a great start with The Flames losing 3 wickets for 4 runs in only 4 overs. We kept on taking wickets at regular intervals with some good ground fielding. Blue Flames were eventually all out for 65 runs, only R. Chapman on 14 and G. Ishauqe on 22 managed to get to double figures. Our bowlers Dean Greaves 4 wickets for 23 runs, James Richards 4 wickets for 22 runs and Cory Milburn 2 wickets for 9 runs. Great win making all the hard work getting the game on well worth it. We won by 118 runs.

Ashington Rugby CC 29 points Blue Flames CC 5 points.

Our 2nd team played away travelling with 9 men due to some late cry offs and also being hit with holidays, injuries and work commitments. We batted first scoring 139 with Craig Jobson hitting his first ever 50 in senior cricket finishing on 53. We then bowled out Blue Flames for 107 the David “Dibbly Dobbler” Wanless Snr did the damage with 6 wickets for 25 runs which drove a steak into the heart of the Flames run chase. Great first win of the season for our young captain David Wanless Jnr, he needs to pat his dad on the back for doing the damage.

Blue Flames 6 points Ashington Rugby CC 27 points

Bad day at the office
Apr 29, 2015, 8:43 pm

Saturday 25th April saw a wet/rainy day the 2nd team game against Warenford CC away was called off early in the day. The 1st's wish they had done the same against Blagdon Park CC, sitting around until 3:30pm, 2 1/2 hours after the start time we got under way in a 35 over match. We lost the toss like we normally do in reduced weather effected game and yes we were put into bat, we lost a wicket with the very first ball of our innings, then in came Adam Peacock to partner Midge they got off to a great start and we were in the 60s when Adam went for a big hit and was caught out on the long boundary for 42 in a innings litter with some great shots, including a huge straight six which hit the Rugby club house wall (long way).

With his wicket seemed to go the run rate and wickets fell at regular intervals, only Chris Harwood on 15 and Michael (Midge) Adamson with 17 were the only ones to get into double figures. We had 2 wickets fall with a first ball and 1 for a second ball, this hit us hard and never really got going after Adam's wicket we ended up all out for 122. Blagdons bowling Johnson 3 wickets for 18 runs and J Concannon 4 wickets for 7 runs.

Blagdon took their time and slowly built a score D Gibson did the damage, he scored 62 not out and Blagdon CC won by 7 wickets. Our bowling Dean Greaves 1 wicket for 25 runs and Cory Milburn 2 wickets for 25 runs.

Ashington RCC 2 points Blagdon Park CC 30 points.

First games of the 2015 season
Apr 22, 2015, 12:05 pm

Saturday 18th April saw the 2015 season get underway, the 1st team were away at Chopwell/GEMS and the 2nd Team came up against Stobswood at the “REC”, on a warm dry day.

The 1st team lost the toss on a poor looking wicket and you guessed it we were put into bat, captain Harwood was the only one to really occupy the crease for any length of time he scored 22, Adam Peacock could do nothing with a ball which shot along the ground. Cory Milburn top scored with 24 before falling to Mukhtar, the return of Graham Whitworth (Flinty) stood his ground and hit some lovely straight drives in his 18 not out, we should also mention Dean Greaves straight hit 6 in his cameo. We eventually fell all out for 165 off 35 overs just as well for GEMS as they only had 10 to 15 minutes left to bowl their remaining 15 odd overs, 47 extras helped cause the delay with over 35 wide’s being bowled.

We needed to get off to a good start and Dean Greaves provided it with 2 LBW’s in the first over, H Mohammed helped pull together their innings with a fine 50 before falling to Cory Milburn. S Shar scored 21, F Ahmed 17, A Muktar 19 kept the score turning over. However the Rugger boys bowling attack kept taking wickets at regular intervals which eventually end up with GEMS all out on 139. Our bowlers Dean Greaves 3 wickets for 17, James Richards 1 wicket for 50, Cory Milburn 3 wickets for 23 and Graham Whitworth 3 wickets for 32. Ashington Rugby Cricket Club ended up winning by 36 runs.

GEMS 7 points and Ashington RCC 28 Points.

Our 2nd team won the toss on a good looking wicket at the REC and elected to bat, we lost a few early wickets before Kevin Hetherington and Jay Little put on a great stand Kevin ended up on 40 and Jay ended up 65 not out, we ended up with 174 for 6 wickets in 40 0vers.

Stobswood CC started well in their chase only bowler from the Rugger boys who did any damage was David Wanless Jnr who ended up with 5 wickets for 30 runs, in his first game back for the club after a few years from his employment jaunt down in Hull. Our ground fielding was not good and this let us down. Stobswood ended up winners hitting the winning run with 7 balls left of their innings finishing 176 for 7 wickets. D. Townsley hit 35 and A Toddhunter hit 48 helping Stobswood to take the victory by 3 wickets.

Ashington RCC 6 points and Stobswood CC 26 points.
