We are on the lookout for a venue for our indoor nets starting in February, following the changes to our normal venue that no longer accommodates cricket nets.

Let our committee know if you know of anywhere close by which may be suitable.

There is always one
Oct 14, 2012, 7:22 pm

Following the renovations on our cricket square one bright spark decided to let his child drive a motorised car under our roped off square and across the length of our square which was covered in water following the recent heavy rain and if that was not enough "Idiot" who is supposed to be an adult in charge of a child then followed and made a fine mess with his footprints.

May I ask is the world full of "Numpties" the rope around the square and the couloured tape hanging down is there for a reason. Think of it as a no entry sign!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guess our groundsman will have to patch up the mess when the square has dried out a bit.

Cricket covers on container roof

Saturday 6th October 2012 saw our club store our cricket covers frames on the container roofs for safe keeping thanks to D. Greaves, D. Hardy, C. Harwood, D. Wanless Jnr and our groundsman. Our sight screens have also been tied to the changing room gable end for the winter.

All smiles after losing
Sep 27, 2012, 10:25 pm

Saturday 22nd September saw the 1st team at Berwick in a re-arranged game, the game was important as if we won we would miss relegation and if we lost and Corbridge also lost we would be safe.

With three 1st team player missing for various reason we went up to give it a real go, on turning up at the ground it was hard to tell the difference between the wicket and the outfield, to say it was green would be an understatement. The toss was very important and you guessed it we lost again and not surprising we were asked to bat and a green and very damp track.

Nearly every delivered was ripping back the top of the wicket, we did not really get going only Callum Milburn who ended up with 34 was the only one to really look comfortable, he hit some glorious boundaries all along the floor, once he fell we were quickly dismissed for 91 in 30 overs.

In chasing Berwick took 32 overs to win the game with only 4 wickets down only captain Greaves put any pressure on their batsmen with his 13 overs with 2 wickets for 12 runs.

We were then left hoping for Stocksfield to do us a favour and they duly obliged bowling out Corbridge for 91 after they had amassed 181 for 5.

This is another first for our club every other season we have had in the premier league has always ended in relegation so this is a big achievement for the club.

Cricket Square Renovations
Sep 23, 2012, 7:52 am

Friday 21st September 2012 saw the club heavily invest in its cricket square, with the help of Turf Care who removed the top 24mm from the square with a koro scrapper 12mm across the square and 12mm with the line of play.

We took this decision to help the removing any undulations and the small saddle we had at stump height, it also helped remove any thatch and fibre we have which is hard to remove when scarified with a hand driven machine.

The square was then spike and then tilthed up with a graden maching, this was repeated to break up the next 25mm to give the area a nice bed for the seed and fertilizer, it was then traged matted. The square was then rolled and graded again with the blades set higher so just to scrape the surface it was then seeded again.

Altoghter we put on 4 ton of loam, 5 bags of seed and 1 bag of fertlizer.  

To see more pictures of the work undertaken you can view them in the photo gallery on the left of the screen in a folder called 2012 Cricket Square Renovations.

A very big thank you goes to UK Coal for their support.
