Extending another record
Jun 29, 2015, 12:59 pm

The game against Bomarsund CC saw our 1st team extend their scoring record to 7 consecutive games of a score of over 200 runs, with their 254 for 6. Led by Captain Chris Harwood with his great knock of 95. 

Double win
Jun 29, 2015, 12:55 pm

Saturday 27th June (Fancy Dress Day) saw the Bomar make the short travel to the “REC” to play our 1st Team, on a warm day we won the toss and elected to bat, a big thumbs up from our players. Our captain Chris Harwood and Stu Rosser opened up and steadily built a partnership which moved on to 100 in no times at all and by the drinks break we had 121 on the board from 25 overs. Our first wicket down was Stu who scored 42 before being caught by Mathews off the bowling of Robinson.

In came Adam Peacock who has been our best bat this season and we all had high hopes for another big score, however out hopes were dashed when he last 4 balls for a duck he was caught behind by Mathews off the bowling of Mollon. Chris had breezed past 50 and looked in good nick and was very disappointed to be out 5 runs short of his century, fantastic knock which put the team in a great position to push on And this we did Michael Adamson score 20, Dean Hardy hit a fine 35 not out, Jay Little a quick fire 18 in our total of 254 for 6. Bomar’s wicket takers were C. Mollon 3 for 58, L. Bessford 1 for 35, D. Robinson 1 for 48 and S. Thornton 1 for 37.

In reply Bomar were shuck up when opening Bowler Cory Milburn hit Colin Thornton on the helmet with his very first delivery, not long later was Colin caught by Peacock off Cory Milburn for 6. He struck again not long after when he dismissed Purvis clean bowled for 5. This brought S. Thain and N. Straker to the crease and they built a good partnership before the loss of Straker LBW by Maddison on 29 and the same bowler removed Bomar’s main man Thain for 62 caught by Whitworth on the boundary, Thain played his normal game and hit some very clean boundaries in his total, the Rugger boys were pleased to see the back of him as he looked set for a big score, once he went the Rugger boys kept taking wickets regularly and the bowler who did the damage was Scott Maddison with his spin bowling , he took 5 for 21, Cory Milburn 2 for 28, James Richards 2 for 42 and Graham Whitworth 1 for 38. Bomar were all out for 161 the Rugger Boys winning by 93 runs, this win lifts us to second place in the Premier League.

Ashington Rugby CC 30 Points Bomarsund CC 6 points.

In the reverse fixture our 2nd team was away to Bomarsund 2nds, Bomar won the toss and elected to bat they had former Rugger boy Graeme Pattinson opening the bat and he continued his good recent form hitting 64 and Chris Scott another former Rugger boy hitting 33. Our bowling our main wicket taker was captain David Wanless Jnr who took 3 for 29. Bomar finished their 40 over on 178 for 7.

Our run chase was steady with captain Wanless Jnr top scoring with 49 not out with the other lads chipping in we eventually won the game scoring 179 for 5 a great win chasing a good score, well done lads that gives us a double over our near neighbours. It also stabilises our second place in Division 2.

Bomarsund CC 5 points Ashington Rugby CC 28 points.


Another record falls
Jun 22, 2015, 12:27 pm

1st team breaks another club record as they hit their 6th consecutive score of over 200 runs in the Premier Division with their 221 for 9 against Clara Vale CC on Saturday 20th June 2015.

1st team continue the good form
Jun 22, 2015, 12:25 pm

Saturday 20th June saw our 1st team travel to Clara Vale for our Premier league clash; we had a number of player’s unavailable including 2 key players our top run scorer and number 3 bat Adam Peacock and Captain Chris Harwood our opening bat. On a very green track and an overcast day we lost the toss and were asked to bat (no surprise there).

We lost Stu Rosser early caught by Liaquat bowled Mohammed for 3, Dean Hardy looked in good nick up till he cut a ball to the cover fielder for 17.Michael Adamson and Paul Milburn build a partnership for the next wicket steadily scoring runs before the rain came, after the break Paul fell cutting a ball back onto his stumps for 33, Michael was also bowled playing across the line when on 47 great knock. Cory Milburn started to push the runs along with some big hitting he scored 35 bowled by Mohammed. Our tale end wagged with Scott Maddison scoring 21 and James Richards 26, they ran quick between the wickets picking up runs and frustrating Clara at the same time. We ended up 221 for 9 off our rain affected reduced 47 overs, great effort with 2 key batsmen missing.

Our bowling was on song and we only used 2 bowlers, Dean Greaves and stand in Captain Cory Milburn. Dean as normal was swinging the ball which caused the dangerous Clara lads all sorts of problems and with Cory bowling quickly at the other end it gave Clara no break to attack our bowling. Dean took 5 wickets for 15 runs in his spell, 2 bowled, 2 LBW and 1 caught, Cory took 4 wickets for 23 in his spell the last 2 wickets fell in 2 balls, he bowled 3 and had 1 caught. Clara Vale CC was all out for 43 runs.

We won by 178 runs, this win lifted the team to 3rd place in the Northumberland Cricket League Premier Division.

Clara Vale CC 4 points Ashington Rugby CC 30 points.

Our 2nd team welcomed Bates Cottages CC to the “REC” with a very depleted team, we bowled first and things did not look god after 20 overs Bates were 109 for 0, until Steven Henderson came on to bowl and his swing caused the Bates boys problems from the offset. Steven took 7 wickets for 24 runs in no time at all alone with David Wanless Snr who took the other 3 wickets for 12 runs. Bates finished 156 all out.

Our bating struggled which we expected with the club having 9 players unavailable, we scored 56 all out, not a bad effort when we only had 5 players on Thursday and we did well to get a team out on the pitch.

Ashington Rugby CC 5 points Bates Cottages 28 points.

Adam Peacock is smashing 1st team records for our club with his batting he has now hit 6 scores of 50 plus in consecutive weeks, these scores were 95, 86, 134, 51, 81, and 128 what an achievement. This put's him top of the league run table with 629 runs with an average of 69.89 runs and we are still 2 games before the half way point in the season.

Second week when rain stops play with us looking good.
Jun 14, 2015, 7:47 pm


Saturday 13th June saw table toppers Bates Cottages CC turn up at the “REC” for our 1st team clash. We batted first on a good looking deck, with Chris Harwood and new opening partner Stu Rosser getting the game underway. Stu was first to fall LBW to Baston and Chris followed shortly after with the same fate LBW by Telford with a hint of a big inside edge onto the pad, Chris scored 17 and Stu 13, in came the man of the moment Adam Peacock who last week broke a batting record for the club with 5 consecutive 50 plus scores, he did not disappoint he played himself in and like normal he built his innings with some fantastic shots, his 50 came with a big 6. With Adam at one end the rugger boys were batting around him, Dean Hardy scored a steady 23 and the others chipped in around him, Adam finished bowled by Elliott after scoring 128 his second hundred of the season and his 6 consecutive 50 plus score.

We ended up with 240 for 9 from our 50 overs, another record for the club our 5th consecutive score of over 200 not a bad feat when you consider the large size of our ground.

Bates Bowlers M. Telford 2 for 59, P. Baston 2 for 41, R. Symington 2 for 33, M. Elliott 2 for 37 and S. Elliott 1 for 18.

Bates Cottages CC set about the score and was going along fine until Cory Milburn bowled M. Golightly on 21 and then he ran our G. Turnbull for 32 throwing and hitting direct form the long on boundary (canny shot). The man of the season for Bates up to now R. Symington was our LBW bowled by spinner Scott Maddison on 27. We had a few rain breaks and the disturbed the game, however following on from last week the Rugger boys kept at it and had Bates 157 for 5 off 38 overs when the rain came and stopped the game for good.   Leaving the ruggers boys looking to the sky and asking why 2 weeks in a row when we were looking good the rain came and stopped the game, Bates needed 87 runs from 12 overs needing 6.92 runs per over, with only 5 wickets remaining.

Ashington RCC bowlers who took wickets C. Milburn 1 for 38, G. Whitworth 2 for 64 and Scott Maddison 1 for 16.

Ashington RCC 12 points and Bates Cottages CC 12 points.

Our 2nd team were due to play Clara Vale away but the home side conceded not able to filed a team, shame for our boys as they were playing well sitting second top of Division 2 with 193 points.

Clara Vale ? points and Ashington RCC 30 points.
