Our 1st Team travelled to top of the league Stocksfield on the last game of the season on 13.9.2014. We won the toss and batted and once again we could not build any partnerships and wickets fell quickly and often, only Kevin Hetherington 14, Paul Milburn 13 and Cory Milburn 12 made it to double figures. Credit where it is due Stocksfield bowled very well, we were eventually all out for 81. Wickets were shared around however Ben Hutton bowled very well with sharp away swing he took 2 wickets from 5 overs for only 2 runs.

Stocksfield set about the run chase the only wicket lost was to Dean Greaves bowling with a sharp catch by Kevin (Tucker) Hetherington, a day to forget or we should look at it as an education. Well Done Stocksfield on winning the league.

Stocksfield 30 points Ashington RCC 0 points.

We finished our highest ever placing in the Premier League that was 6th.

Our 2nd team entertained Whitley Bay 1st Team at the "Rec" Whitley Bay won the toss and batted on a cracking deck, they however came up against a side with a point to prove and prove our 2nd team did. We bowled the Bay out for 90 with N. Piper scoring 33.

Our bowlers who did the damage were; Craig Jobson 8 overs, 2 wickets for 23 runs, David Wanless Snr 11.2 overs, 4 wickets for 6 runs "YES ONLY 6 RUNS", Trevor (Captain) Elliott 8 overs, 4 wickets for 25 runs, Great effort by the boys.

We made it home just with the loss of 7 wickets with Liam Lavery 25, Stephen Parsons 17 and Jamie Smith 16 not out saw us through for a great win. Remember folks it is our 2nd Team Playing Whitley Bay's 1st team

Ashington RCC 25 points Whitley Bay 3 points.

We finished 12th in our division but we gave it a go that is the main thing and the spirt we showed during a tough season was brilliant.

Good win for 1st team

Saturday 6th September 2014, Clara Vale were the visitors to the “REC” for the 1st team match, we won the toss and elected to bat on a great looking wicket “road”. Once again we stumbled early on losing 3 quick wickets for only 15 runs on the board. Just like last week the Captain Michael “Midge” Adamson and Paul Milburn had to build a partnership and keep the score board ticking over, playing some powerful shots our score moved onto 102 when Paul was out LBW on 50 and in came Chris Harwood alone with Midge kept the scoreboard ticking over, Chris was out for 19. Midge was eventually out for 72 and Scott Maddison scored 14 we were eventually all out for 188.

Clara did what Clara normally do go for it right from ball one, however Dean Greaves had a quick answer in his 2nd over he took a hat-trick which put a dent into the Clara innings, they still went for it with N Iqbal hitting 23 caught at cow corner by Dean Hardy, M Ashraf hit a quick fire 60 before being bowled by James Richards, H Murza hit 27 another caught on the long boundary by James Richards off a Cory Milburn delivery.  Once Ashraf and Murza were out the innings came to a quick conclusion all out for 135, hats off to Clara they certainly had us thinking with some powerful hitting.    

Our bowling Dean Greaves 4 wickets for 25 runs, James Richards 4 for 66, Mick Nicholson 0 for 31 and Cory Milburn 2 for 5. This win lifts us to 5th in the Premier League our highest place this season.

Ashington Rugby CC 29 points and Clara Vale CC 7 points.

Our 2nd team travelled to Cramlington CC, we scored 131 all out, Graham Pattinson 23, Craig Jobson 20, Lee Hudson 14, David Wanless Snr 17 not out and Captain Trevor Elliott 23.

Cramlington made it home with 8 wickets down, G Barnes did the damage with 46 not out, our bowling Craig Jobson 2 wickets for 31 runs, David Wanless 2 for 29, Trevor Elliott 3 for 30. Just short of another bowler.

Cramlington CC 28 points and Ashington Rugby CC 5 points     

Disappointing results

Saturday 30th August saw the 1st team travel to Berwick for their Premier League clash, we won the toss and elected to bat, we lost 3 quick wickets Mick Nicholson, Adam Peacock and Lewis Tanney all for less than 10 runs each we then stood at 22 for 3. We needed partnerships and that’s what the 4 wicket lads did before Paul Milburn was out caught in the slips for 20 with the score on 79. That left captain Michael Adamson with new partner Chris Harwood to build again which they did well before Chris fell on 18 with the score in the 120’s. Michael continued to build his innings ending up 74 not out with our score on 158 for 9.

Berwick set about the run chase with the wicket playing a lot better that it did in the first innings; Scott Middlemiss hit 40, Finely McCreath 49 not out and Sean Wales 37 not out saw Berwick through to the end for the loss of 4 wickets.

Our bowling Dean Greaves 8 overs 2 wickets for 39 runs, James Richards 13 overs 1 wicket for 29 runs, Cory Milburn 8 overs, 0 wickets for 33 runs, Mick Nicholson 5 overs 1 wicket for 12 runs, Adam Peacock 3 overs 0 wickets for 15 runs and Lewis Tanney 3.3 overs 0 wickets for 22 runs.

Our 2nd team entertained Tynemouth in their Division 1 clash, we won the toss and batted first, we found it tough against Edward Snelders bowling he took 6 wickets for 34 runs from 11.4 overs. Craig Jobson scored 12, Ryan Pringle 11, Kevin Hetherington 31, Jamie Smith 11 and Kevin (Spook) Haram 11 runs we ended up all out for 137.

We bowled well and took regular wickets and only Benjamin Richardson who scored 66 and Daniel Storey on 27 scored any notable runs. The game was on a knife edge with Tynemouth needing 30 odd runs with only 1 wicket left and they just managed it finishing up 138 for 9. We had a few shouts for LBW near the end but nothing came of them. Great effort lads.

Our bowling Ryan Pringle 3 overs 0 wickets for 26 runs, Trevor Elliott 10 overs 3 wickets for 37 runs, David Wanless Snr 13 over 4 wickets for 31 runs and Craig Jobson 9 overs 2 wickets for 31 runs.

Warkworth finished up 159 off 41 overs for 7 wickets.

We must mention the fielding by Bernie Tanney drafted in at the last minute due to unavailability and he did not show his years, the ball followed him all day the highlight was he dived to stopped an off drive and in one motion he got up and threw from his knees and knocked over the stumps, fantastic Bernie what a lift that gave the team.

Hindmarsh at this stage we were 53 for 1 wicket and what happened next was a quick succession of wickets which took us to 94 for 7 we ended up winning but just we scored 111 for 9 with Scott Maddison hitting the winning run a boundary over the top of extra cover he finished 16 not out the only other batsmen to score double figures was Adam Peacock on 16 and Paul Milburn on 24.
