Saturday 18th May saw our 1st team travel to Corbridge for their Division 3 league game. With a number of key players missing (batsmen) we lost the toss and were put to bat on a damp overcast day. We posted a score of 173 for 7 from our 50 overs. Lewis Tanney top scored with a fine 55 not out he was supported by Callum Milburn on 30, Jay Little on 33.

Corbridge reply was slowed down with them losing two quick wickets the first on 3 runs and the second on 14 runs, they then started with a few partnerships C. Fowler scored 25, M. Thompson 45 and M. Sewell on 65 not out they ended up reaching 177 for 5 from 45.3 overs.

D. Greaves 2 wickets for 43, C. Milburn 2 wickets for 36 and S. Maddison 1 wicket for 36 runs.

Great effort but not enough runs on the board.

Corbridge CC 28 points Ashington Rugby CC 5 points.


Our 2nd team hosted Bomarsund CC in a top of the table clash both teams undefeated from their first 4 games. The Rugger boys won the toss and put on Bomar on a good wicket, the thinking was the overcast conditions and the potential rain that was forecasted and we could look to pick up bowling bonus points.  The rain did not come and we played a full 40 over game.

Bomar put on a good opening partnership with B. Modey with 18 and P. Smith on 41 Bomar posted 149 for 5. D. Wanless 2 wickets for 29 runs, R. Gibson 1 for 37, T. Elliott 1 for 24, O. Mason 1 for 30 and the unlucky C. Jobson 0 wickets from his 9 overs for 15 runs.

Our opening pair of Captain S. Rosser and S. Henderson batted through and reached the target after 33 overs unbeaten. S. Rosser 96 not out and S. Henderson 40 not out.

Saturday 11th May our 1st team hosted Bomarsund CC, Bomar won the toss and elected to bat on a good wicket.  Our club had 7 players not available for carious reason including the rugby final at St. James Park. They were eventually 135 for 9 off 47 overs in a rain effected game, S. Thain top scored with 42 which was well below par for the wicket but credit goes to our bowlers.

Mark Lawrence 5 wickets for 12 runs, James Richards 2 for 41 and Cory Milburn 2 for 24.

Our run chase started off badly with our first wicket gone for 1 run on the board our second down for 8 runs, our third down for 9 runs before Adam Peacock with a fine 67 not out and supported by Jay Little with 14 and Chris Harwood with 12 and then Cory Milburn with 28 not out saw us through. To 138 for 5.

L. Besford for Bomar bowled well taking 4 for 27 off 11 overs.

 Ashington Rugby CC 29 points and Bomarsund CC 4 points.   


Our 2nd team were away to GEMS CC at Chopwell with a much weakened team we lost the toss gain and were put in on a damp track. A good knock from Paul Milburn with 98 not out helped us to a total of 184 for 2 wickets ably supported by S. Henderson 20 and R. Pringle with 33.

At the start we only had 23 runs on the board after 15 overs due to the top coming off the wicket, but we dug in and slowly pushed the score on later on.

We bowled GEMS out for 114 after 33.2 overs with R. Kaira hitting 63 in no time at all.

Our bowlers who did the damage C. Jobson 1 wicket for 30 runs, D. Wanless 2 for 29, T. Elliott 2 for 22 and R. Gibson 2 for 14.

A great win with a weakened team.

GEMS CC 3 points Ashington Rugby CC 30 points.

Saturday 4th May our 1st team hosted Whitley Bay at the Rec we batted first and set a score of 223 for 7 from our 49 overs. Star performer was Lewis Tanney with a majestic 82 supported by Adam Peacock with 32 and Cory Milburn with 35 not out.


Whitley Bay's innings ended up 115 all out only Kirk with 37 and Virpura 36 made an impression after that it was a case of dropping anchor and killing time in the hope of a draw. Pick of our bowlers was Scott Maddison with 5 wickets for 26 runs in 8.2 overs, Mark Lawrence 2 for 32 in 11 overs, David Dent 1 wicket for 1 run in 1 over, Cory Milburn 1 for 22 off 11 overs Dean Greaves 11 overs 0 wickets for 14 runs.

Ashington RCC 2nds made the short journey to play Blyth CC 2nds at Plessey Road on a day that the forecast wasn’t favourable to playing cricket, Blyth CC 2nds won the toss and asked Ashington RCC 2nds to bat on what looked to be a half decent pitch. With conditions bitterly cold due to a chilling wind coupled with the rain showers, Ashington RCC 2nds batted sensibly against what was the best bowling attack so far this season posting an imposing score of 202-5 in 40 overs which was mainly due to an excellent innings from Paul Milburn (91 not out) with assistance from Kevin Hetherington (23), Craig Jobson (21) and Owain Jarvis (21 not out).


In reply, Blyth CC 2nds started positively with the bat but with the tight bowling of Davey Wanless Snr (9-3-22-2) and Trevor Elliot (9-0-17-4) plus the impact of the weather conditions, rain interruptions continued to restrict the runs but a late rally from the Blyth CC 2nds batsmen pushed the final score to 168-8 in there 40 overs.

Ashington RCC 2nds entertained Kirkley 2nds at the Rec for there first home game of the season. With the forecast looking fair with the risk of showers, after winning the toss, Kirkley surprisingly decided to bowl on what looked to be a batsman’s paradise and so it proved.


After the previous weeks result, captain Rosser made changes at the top of the order and started with the tried and tested combination of Rosser and Hardy. From the off, also assisted by some pie throwing as bowling, the pair started to dismantle the bowling attacked of Kirkley 2nds with a stand of 174 for the 1st wicket partnership in 26 overs with Rosser departing for 102. The onslaught continued with the introduction of Midge Adamson (30) and Jonny Richards (16) and eventually Dean Hardy (109 not out) achieved his first 100 for the club when he remained unbeaten with Ashington RCC 2nds finishing with the imposing total of 279 – 3 in 40 overs.


In reply, Kirkley 2nds found scoring hard to come by with the tight bowling of Craig Jobson (9-3-19-0), Owen Mason (5-1-11-1),Davy Wanlass Snr (6-2-14-4) and Ricky Gibson (5-0-23-3) and crawled to a total of 124 all out in the 37th over.

Saturday 20th April our 1st team hosted Benwell & Walbottle CC at the Rec, with the sun out for the first game of the season.


Having lost the toss and been asked to bat first we were in a spot of trouble at 24-2 having lost openers Matthew Tanney and Callum Milburn for 5 and 12 respectively Adam Peacock and David Dent started to rebuild slowly against some decent new ball bowling. The pair continued to the drinks break at 2 runs per over. They accelerated steadily after that with both batsmen passing 50. Dent was eventually bowled in the final over chasing his 100 for 95 which included 17 fours. Peacock had already secured his 100 which included 14 fours and a 6 finishing 109 not out. The pair had put on 200 exactly when Dent fell. Ashington Rugby CC finished on 229-3 from there 50 overs. 


In reply Benwell were soon struggling due to some tight new ball bowling by from Dean Greaves and Cory Milburn. Cory finished with 1-21 when Mark Lawrence came on at the rugby club end. He and Greaves continued to bowl excellently finishing with figures of 3-16 and 4-31 (including a hat trick) respectively from there 12 overs. Maddison and Richards claimed the final 2 wickets between them to bowl Benwell all out for 116.

Wicket for the first game of the season.


Ashington RCC 2nds travelled to Clara Vale to play Civil Service CC in the opening game of the 2019 cricket season in Division 6 South.


On a glorious day, Civil Service won the toss and elected to bat on what was a very green looking wicket. Having lost the toss, Ashington RCC 2nds bowlers started exactly as they had finished off the 2018 season by restricting the opposition batsmen’s opportunities to score along with taking early wickets.


Craig Jobson (9-4-18-0) and Owen Mason (7-0-16-3) bowled exceptional well and restricted Civil Service to 21-3 off 12 overs. The introduction of Davey Wanless Snr (9-4-17-5) and P Milburn (7-1-11-1) continued with the theme set by the opening pair and eventually Civil Service were bowled out for 68 in the 33rd over.


In reply, Ashington RCC 2nds batsmen made little work of the target with Jonny Richards (32 not out) and Midge Adamson (19 not out) eventually hitting the winning runs in the 9th over for the loss of 1 wicket.
