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!!!!!!!

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.

12th July 2014 saw the 1st team travel to Chopwell to play GEMS CC, buoyant after their great win over Blagdon CC the previous week, with only Adam Peacock missing (holiday). We lost the toss and GEMS decided to bat and early on they went after the bowling attack swinging from the hip, with the small field the boundaries came quickly scoring over 7 runs an over for the first 10 overs.

B. Krishan scored 32 and H. Tahir 34 they then both fell in quick succession, this gave us an inroad into their middle order, we then took hold of the batsmen with some tight bowling where the runs dried up. Scott Maddison bowled a good tight spell of spin bowling which strangled their run scoring. We eventually bowled GEMS out for 160 which we thought was a great effort after they were 80+ for 1 wicket.

Our wicket takers were Dean Greaves 3 for 32, James Richards 2 for 62, Cory Milburn 1 for 40, Scott Maddison 1 for 14 and Lewis Tanney 2 for 5.

We then set about the run chase after we decided to move the batting order around for our success last week. Chris Harwood fell early on for 6 bringing Paul Milburn and Dean Hardy together they dug in against a good bowling attack and got the score to 51 before Paul fell on 26. Dean was out quickly after on 14 and the only two other batsmen to score double figures were Scott Maddison with 17 and James Richards 12 we eventually were all out for 106, very disappointing. This result losing by 54 runs meant that GEMs went above us in the league.

GEMS 28 points and Ashington RCC 6 points.

Our 2nd team were at home playing against Ulgham CC 1st team; however we were in a position on Friday night that we were struggling to field a team and came close to conceding, however we just managed to get out a team. We bowled first and Ulgham opening batters enjoyed themselves with Colin Tait scoring 24 and Mark Plumber 124 not out, Ulgham scored 228 for 6 off their 50 overs. Our wicket takers were David Wanless Snr 3 for 44 and Captain Trevor Elliott 3 for 51.

In reply the young guns Andy Mathews 34 and Steven Parsons 68 (1st 50 for the club) made a fight of the run chase before we were all out for 148, valiant effort by a weakened team who fought to the end with a great spirt shown.

Ashington RCC 5 points and Ulgham CC 30 points.

Hard work paid offf

Saturday 5th July 2014 we found our ground flooded after the dry weather, we were just about to call the game off at 8:30am when we decided to give it a go to remove the large amount of ground water at the bottom end of our ground. Thanks to Dean Greaves, Michael Adamson, Chris Harwood and Paul Milburn they ended up removing approx. 40 to 50 barrow loads of water. We then spiked the wet areas with the aerator to help the wet areas to dry out quicker.

We got the game on which was a 1st team fixture against Blagdon we won the toss and put them into bat we bowled well and all our bowlers had the ball seaming all over the place beating the edge on numerous occasions and James Richards took 4 wickets, Lewis Tanney 2 wickets and Cory Milburn 2 wickets only 1 Balgdon batsman really got going and that was Shaun Collins who was eventually run out by Mick Nicholson when on 62, they finished with 152 all out. 

We started our chase with Mick Nicholson attacking right from the start, he got on top of their bowlers who did not have an answer he plundered 88 not out in our run chase with Adam Peacock hitting 41 we won by 8 wickets.

Ashington RCC 30 points and Blagdon CC 4 points (Great win worth all the hard work in the morning to get the game on)

2nd team was away to Hebburn CC we lost the toss and they batted at one stage they were 81 for 0 wickets eventually they fell 158 all out Liam Lavery did the damage with 5 wickets for 12 runs in 5 overs (spin bowling). Some good tight bowling by David Wanless Snr and Trevor Elliott did a good job before Liam did his bit.

We lost an early wicket before we started to build a few small partnerships but we kept losing wickets to rash shots giving our wickets away only Paul Milburn with 44, Steven Parsons and Craig Jobson with some lusty hits got us to within 30 runs but we could not get any closer than the mid-120s.

Hebburn CC 28 points and Ashington RCC 7 points

Saturday 21st June saw our 1st team travel to Clara Vale for our Premier League fixture, we lost the toss and Clara batted first they put on a big score of 271 all out. As Clara normally do they went for it right from the start and carried quite a bit of luck but they also hit the ball well especially M. Rehan who scored 94 with others chipping in with 20’s. Our pick of the bowlers was Dean Greaves 4 wickets for 37 runs off his 13 overs and James Richards with 3 wickets for 64 runs.

When we set about our runs chase we lost C. Harwood early on with a smart catch down the leg side from their keeper, our pick of the batters was Dean Hardy with a workman like performance with 75 before being run out all of our players got started Mick Nicholson 25, Adam Peacock with 31, Ryan Hogg with 24, Cory Milburn with 56. Only to fall 5 runs short, finishing 266 for 7 wickets, a great effort but not quite enough.

Clara Vale CC 28 Points and Ashington Rugby CC 10 points (maximum for losing)

The 2nd team entertained Cramlington CC 1st team in a Division 1 clash at the “REC”. Cramlington won the toss and batted the Rugger boys took regular wickets and prevented Cramlington from building any partnerships. The pick of the bowlers was David Wanless Snr who took 5 wickets for 26 runs off his 12 overs and Steven Henderson who took 2 wickets for 26 runs. Cramlington had a good final wicket partnership of 50 runs which pushed their score from 91 for 9 to 141 all out.

When the Rugger boys took to the crease to chase the total we lost early wickets and never really got going eventually falling all out for 105 pick of the batters was Graham Pattinson with 18 runs, really disappointing as we felt we had more than enough to pick off the target, praise must go the Cramlington bowlers who bowled well. B. Walker 3 wickets for 29 runs, B. Cuthbertson with 3 wickets for 29 runs and A. Livingston with 3 wickets for 5 runs. Cramlington won by 36 runs.

Ashington Rugby CC 6 points and Cramlington CC 27 points.
