Rain Hit
Aug 7, 2014, 6:58 am

August 2nd 2014 1st team at home to Kirkley CC on a wet damp day with the forecast not looking good, we did a lot of work to get the game on and for once we won the toss and bowled. We had Kirkley in trouble from ball one and took regular wickets and if it was not for a 40 odd run partnership by the 8th wicket stand we would have bowled them out for under 80 however as it went we were happy bowling them out for 114.  Our bowlers; Dean Greaves took 3 for 22; James Richards took 3 for 38, Cory Milburn 1 for 16. Lewis Tanney 1 for 8 and Adam Peacock 1 for 4.

We knew we had to attack the bowling with the weather looking grim we were 62 for 3 when the rain came with Adam Peacock looking good on 37 not out, we tried 3 times to get on the field however these we efforts were in vain for various reasons (not just the weather) and we ended up giving in at 7:30pm game abandoned rain.

Points: Ashington RCC 10 points and Kirkley CC 7 points.

Our 2nd team were away to Bomarsund CC 1st team who are sitting clear top of Division 1, we ended up with only 10 men with a very late cry off. Bomar won the toss and batted they scored 202 for 6 declared Colin Thornton scored 62 and Adam Purvis 38.

We had a tough time against a good bowling attack and we struggled all out for 64, our runs came from Craig Jobson 13 and Jay Little 10. Bomar bowlers who did the damage were Garry Mordey 5 for 20 and Ben Heatley 3 for 38. Disappointing but not unexpected.

Points: Bomarsund CC 30 points and Ashington RCC 3 points.

Mixed Fortunes
Jul 28, 2014, 12:01 pm

Saturday 26th July saw our 1st Team travel to Blyth CC in a local derby, for once we won the toss and elected to bat. Mick Nicholson was out first wicket down to a dubious LBW for 11; the other opening bat and captain Michael Adamson (Midge) hung around and built an innings with Adam Peacock who found it hard going with a tight spell bowling from Kemp who eventually bowled him for 14. Chris Harwood playing against his former team came up against Blyth’s spin twins Singh and Lawrence who bowled a good spell of tight bowling restricting our runs Chris fell to a wonder ball from Surge Singh for 12. In came Lewis Tanney who batted well above his years and put on a quick 34 before being stumped. Dean Hardy and Paul Milburn put on a good late partnership along with Dean Greaves to push our total to 177 for 8.

We made quick in roads to Blyth’s top order with wickets for Greaves and Richards, however the damage was done by our spin twins Mick Nicholson and Scott Madison. Blyth found it hard against Mick’s sharp spin and bounce, he was turning the ball sharply and eventually took 6 wickets for 27 runs and put paid to Blyth’s run chase they eventually fell all out on 98. This win lifted our team to 6th in the Premier Division with 184 points and Blyth dropped to bottom place with Berwick’s game being weather affected and picking up bonus points.

Blyth CC 4 points and Ashington RCC 29 points.

Our 2nd team at home to Civil Service 1st Team we had another weakened team with holidays, work and other commitments, we had a hard day at the office the Service scoring 248 all out on the final ball of their innings. Our chase fell 90 runs short with us being all out for 158. This defeat dropped us to bottom of Division 1, with the only other 2nd team Blagdon Park in this division winning against 2nd top Monkseaton CC. We sit bottom with 121 points and 2nd bottom team on 140 points.

Ashington RCC 8 points and Civil Service 30 points

Toss was key!!!!!!!
Jul 21, 2014, 12:04 pm

Saturday 19th July 2014 saw Bates Cottages 1st Team arrive at the “REC” on a day when we expected no play due to the severe weather warning where we expected heavy rain, thunderstorms and hailstones. The toss was very important with the conditions being heavily overcast, yes you guessed it we lost the toss again and was put into bat by Bates.

The Bates boys had the ball swinging around quite a bit and this caused our batters a lot of problems and we never really got going and thus we could not build any partnerships of any note only Dean Hardy made it to double figures with his patient 19, we ended up 70 all out.

After the 1st Innings our grounds man was remarking the crease lines etc. when the rain came and did it come we pushed the covers on and we had our teas and sat for quite a while and we thought we may have to go back out when the rain cleared or eased off a little and then came a very heavy shower which put paid to the game both captains shock hands and agreed that no play would take place now.

Ashington RCC 5 points and Bates Cottages 10 points.

Our 2nd team travelled to top of the table Monkseaton CC to plat their 1st team we lost the toss and M. Kleynhans had a great day with his swing bowling taking 7 wickets for 11 runs which ripped the heart out of our weakened team which we could not recover from we finished 45 all out. Only Steven Henderson made it to double figures with his 19.

Monkseaton decided that they should go for it with the weather looking grim and they blasted their way to the total in not many overs to clinch maximum points, with the loss of only 1 wicket. With  M. Kleynhans hitting 24 not out, a great day for him and a one to forget for the rugger boys.

Monkeseaton CC 30 points and Ashington RCC 0 points.
