Weather prevents win
Jun 9, 2015, 1:26 pm

Saturday 6th June saw the 1st team at home versus Blyth, we won the toss and obviously elected to bat on an excellent looking track on a windy and overcast day. We started well with a few loose deliveries which was despatched to the boundary. Our openers C. Harwood scored 18 before falling LBW to Smith and M. Adamson was caught by Roberts off Smith’s bowling. In came the man of the moment A. Peacock who was looking to build on his 4 previous consecutive 50 plus scores, which he did with stylish 81 before being caught and bowled by Lawrence, with a delivery he was just too quick on and ended hitting it straight back down the wicket to the bowler. Other scores of note was D. Hardy 25, P. Milburn 18 and G. Whitworth 14, we ended up 205 all out with a few balls left in the final over.

Blyth’s run chase started briskly with Dent attacking our bowling. Dean Greaves took the first wicket of Pruma LBW for 0, he was bowling a very good spell of swing bowling which Blyth found hard to either defend or attack. His next wicket was the start of a great over for the Rugger Boys. He trapped C. Smith LBW for 9 and in came A. Clark who lasted 1 ball he was also trapped LBW this brought Blyth’s captain M. Lawrence to the wicket to try to prevent the hat trick with a number of players around the bat Dean bowled another peach trapping Lawrence right in front of all three and was given out. Dean fell to his knees with joy not only for his Hat trick but removing three important players.

Then came the first of 3 rain breaks which we lost 1 hour in time and that meant we had to try to get through our 50 overs in 2 hours which is no mean feat. We eventually removed D. Dent for 40 LBW by Whitworth. We then decided to bowl quickly through our overs mainly trying to take wickets for bonus points as Blyth were well behind the run chase with G. Quinn and A. Rowell holding a rear guard action to hold together the Blyth innings. We mixed up our bowlers off shortened run ups and we got very close we were in our 49 over when informed by the umpires that time was up so close yet so far away Blyth finished on 141 for 7. Our players were really down with putting in so much of an effort only to be thwarted by the weather and the time. Great effort by all the Rugger boys.

In summary the weather prevent us winning 5 games on the bounce, on a positive note that is the 4th consecutive game we have scored over 200 runs, Dean Greaves Hat Trick, Adam Peacock broke another club record his 5th consecutive 50 plus score with his brilliant 81. We stay 3rd in the league.

Ashington RCC 13 points and Blyth CC 12 points.

Our 2nd team were away to Blyth and with 9 players unavailable due to work, holidays and injury and 1 no show we ended up playing with only 9 men. Blyth batted first and scored 138 for 7 with D. Carr scoring 60 and David Wanless Snr taking 3 wickets for 47 runs.

Our batting continued our good recent form with Liam Lavery the star 2 weeks running he hit a brilliant 81 not out and Ryan Pringle up the order for our bowler he hit a great 38 not out we ended up winning by scoring 140 for 2. Winning by 8 wickets kept the Rugger boys in 2nd place in Division 2.

Blyth CC 3 points and Ashington RCC 28 points.

Both teams win again

Saturday 30th May saw our 1st Team away to Corbridge CC, on a day when 5 players were still a bit hung over from their visit to the Headingly Test match England V New Zealand.  We won the toss and elected to bat, our openers Chris Harwood and Michael Adamson got us off to a good start, Michael was first out for 22 bowled by Hardy. Chris was joined at the crease by Adam Peacock who continued his great form with the bat. Chris batted very well and took his score onto 43 before being caught by Atkinson off the bowling of Ridley. Next in was Paul Milburn who looked to build on last week’s knock, he and Adam started to build another partnership with some quick running between the stumps along with hitting boundaries they opened up the field and runs started to flow. Adam was out on 51 caught on the deep leg side boundary just when he was looking great nick again. Other scores of note were Paul scored 37 and, Jonny Richards 25. We ended up 238 for 7 off our 50 overs.

Corbridge CC started off very slowly not looking like they wanted to chase the score down scores of note D. Smurthwaite 35, C. Darling 19 not out, D. Cook 19, D. Hardy 27 not out, at the end of their 50 overs Corbridge score 154 for 9. Our bowlers Graham. Whitworth 3 for 38, Cory Milburn 3 for 36 and Scott Maddison 3 for 50.

Ashington RCC won by 84 runs, this being our 4th consecutive win in the league this season. Adam Peacock broke another 1st team record with his 4th consecutive 50 of the season, his scores being 95, 86, 134 and 51.

Our 2nd team were at home playing Monkseaton CC, who won the toss and elected to bat and who were going along nicely with 80ish on the board for the loss of only 1 wicket and they ended up 119 all out. Kevin Elliott top scored for Monkseaton with a fine 47. The damage was done by our bowlers David Wanless Snr 3 for 22, Craig Jobson 3 for 11 along with Trevor Elliott and Tom Stokoe picking up wickets. Nice to see Tom back in the fold, from his time away at University.

Our run chase was very good with Liam Lavery leading the way with 88 not out with some big sixes to cow corner, we eventually won the game for the loss of only 1 wicket with 102 runs on the board. 9 wickets win.

Ashington RCC 30 points and Monkseaton CC 1 point.

County Debut
Jun 2, 2015, 7:03 am


David Wanless made his long awaited Northumberland County over 50 debut at the beautiful Darlington Cricket Club ground versus Durham the two time national champions in 2013 and 2014. Northumberland scored 219 for 4 in their 45 overs and that was as far as the game went due to heavy rain the game was abandoned. 

Record for Peacock
May 25, 2015, 8:06 am


On Saturday 23rd May, Adam Peacock breaks the clubs highest score he hit a fantastic 134 in our total of 265 for 4 in our 1st team fixture at the “REC”. We lost the toss and Kirkley CC decided to put us into bat on an excellent wicket. We got off to steady start with our two openers Captain Chris Harwood and Michael Adamson. Michael was out first to a full toss which just hit the top of the stumps on 28 and not long later the captain was out for 12 to another poor ball a wide full toss which he hit straight to a fielder in the covers.

Now at the crease we had Adam Peacock and Stuart Rosser they continued and built a steady partnership until Rosser was out caught and bowled on 11. Next in was Paul Milburn who gave as much of the strike as he could to Adam who was now in full flow, Adam hit some huge sixes on our big ground along with some lovely touch shots, Adams 100 came off a six to the leg side boundary, he was eventually out in the last over going for another big hit with only 2 balls left in the 50 overs. Adam finished with a classy 134 and his partner Paul finished on 46 not out.

Kirkley CC  started well W. Asher and Ian Smith opening the bat until Ian was off with a hamstring injury, in came debutant E. Common who along with Asher got on with the run chase on the road they were batting on and took the score to 159 for 0 wickets. Our normal bowling attack who have done so well this season struggled on a batter friendly wicket, until we took the pace off the ball with Scott Maddison bowling spin at one end and Paul Milburn bowling slow medium, they did what was required slowing down the scoring rate and eventually taking wickets they fell to Scott who took 3 quick wickets. W. Asher played well for his 88, E. Common did the same in his 66, our captain brought Dean Greaves and Graham Whitworth back on at the death with Kirkley needing just short of a run a ball, Dean bowled well stump to stump and took 3 wickets 40, Graham took 1 wicket for 53 and Scott Maddison took 3 for 33. Kirkley finished with 261 for 7 only 4 runs short; nerves were jingling for the Rugger boy’s until the final ball was bowled, great match with over 520 runs scored on a great pitch.

This win moved the Rugger Boys up to 4th in the Premier League.

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.

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.

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
