Both games off today 1st were due to play Berwick at home see pictures of ground flooded below.

2nd team were down to play Bomarsund Welfare away and their ground is like a boating lake. Looks like another boring day without cricket. The season might as well not started for the games the club has missed this year.

What a fine summer we are having!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cricket season is this normally meant that we have some sunshine.

Photos taken at 6:00pm on Friday 22nd June. Not a chance of cricket on Saturday against Warkworth CC.

All the effort in sorting out a wicket  for what. Today around 2pm Ashington had a very very heavy rain storm, it must have been over our ground, by the looks of it.

Beverley Cup - Joys and Woes
May 25, 2012, 7:26 am

Our 2nds eventually played Ulgham in the Beverley cup at the 3rd attempt the game played at Ulgham on Tuesday 22nd May. We lost the the toss and bowled first Ulgham scored 77 for 7 in their overs, David Wanless Jnr being the pick of our bowlers he took 3 wickets, his dad took 1, Cory Milburn 1 and Stephen Henderson took the other wicket to fall. We set about the score and our batters did not make it easy they lost 6 wickets in chasing the score down, Kevin Hetherington top scored with 21, John Hope and Jay Little both chipped in with 14 each not out. This set us up for a game against Blagdon Park away on Thursday.  

Thursday 24th May Blagdon Park away in the next round of the cup Blagdon won the toss and batted first they scored 145 in their overs losing 5 wickets, M. Senior Jnr top scored with 65. Ash set about the total and did not really build any lasting partnerships ending up 100 for 6 with David Wanless Jnr top scoring for the rugger boys with 23, the man who did the damage was Dave Simpson he took 5 wickets with his spin bowling. Well thats as far as we go in the competition this season, good luck to Blagdon in the next round the best team won on the night.

Both games on

1st team hosted Blue Flames at the "Rec" we won the toss and elected to bowl on a hard  track (over cast conditions) Flames opener had two lucky escapes in the very first over from Greaves when he was dropped twice. However we kept at it with young Lewis Tanney opening the bowling from the Rugby Club end.

We kept taking regular wickets and had Flames in trouble 70 for 7 with Greaves and Tanney doing the damage, until Keith Brown for Flames came to the crease and the experience showed through and he batted very well in building a score of 60+ before he fell and he was supported by a bowler (not sure of name) who decided to have a go and it came off for him with a score of 40+ before he departed the crease. Blue Flames were all out for 188 which was 60 more than we should have allowed them to get, it just showed we were a bowler short.

Harwood and Maddision opened up for "Ash" and put on a nice stand of over 50 when Harwood fell and Maddison went not long after, from this period Flames did what we did to them picking up quick cheap wickets in the early and middle order, we never really got going eventually falling all out for 126. For our troubles we picked up 7 points.

2nd team was away to Blue Flames and this was a quick finish we lost the toss they elected to bat and we bowled them all out for 37 with Ryan Pringle picking up 5 wickets and the rest of the bowlers picked up the odd wicket. After a quick turnaround with no tea we set about the target and we lost 4 wickets chasing it eventually picking up 30 points. From all accounts the wicket was not the best jumping up etc. Great start for the 2nd's that is 2 wins in 2 games played.

Rain hits games again
May 12, 2012, 7:19 am

Both of the clubs weekend fixtures have been hit by the wet weather, 1st were meant to be a home against Stocksfield and our 2nd's were away at Clara Vale.

Our home ground is under water with the none stop rain, the water table has hardly went down from our last heavy rain fall and this rain has just topped it up, at this rate we will be struggling to get a game on at the "Rec" next week.

Look at our ground 10th May 8.00pm
May 10, 2012, 10:18 pm

What have we done wrong? Any more rain and we will need to call out the lifeboat. We are meant to host Stocksfield on Saturday at the "Rec" our groundsman cannot see that taking place. Have a look at the photos below.

Our capatin said he will come over with a fork on Saturday, if he brings his knife and spoon it will still not make a difference, no harm in trying.

Eventually games being played
May 10, 2012, 9:59 pm

Saturday 5th May saw the 1st travelled to Bates Cottages we lost the toss and were put in to bat we only managed 69 all out, with Dean Hardy making the only real score for the team. We went on the pitch to bowl with the intention of making it as hard as possible for Bates and that is just what the captain did, Dean Greaves bowled a great spell taking 5 for 24. Bates won the game but only after losing 6 wickets.

2nd Team welcomed Bates at the Rec, Bates won the toss and elected to bat they made 109 for 4 from their 40 overs with their opener making 73 not out. The rugger boys made a good start early on and got bogged down in the middle and late order but eventually won with 1 over to spare after losing 6 wickets. Stephen Henderson top scored for the rugger boys only to be run out in a strange way, he was to busy playing with his box and his equipment instead of looking to see that he was not over the crease line. "What a Balls Up"

Midweek team entertained Blyth on Wednesday 9th May at the Rec with our new young captain and vice captain in charge for there 1st game not bad for 2 - 18 year olds. We won the toss and elected to bat and posted a score to 83 for 7 off 16 overs, with Cory Milburn and Matty Tanney putting on a useful partnership. Blyth chased the score but fell only 2 runs short in a good game, great start for the "Young Guns".

1st Team played Blue Flames in the Birkett Cup on Tuesday 8th May, batting first we manged only 76 and 5 of those were penalty runs for Flames taking 10 minutes over their allotted time to bowl 16 overs. Run outs crippled our attempt to put on a decent score, only Chris Harwood made a score. Blue Flames time their run chase and got home in the 14th over with the loss of only 3 wickets. 

Will the rain ever stop
May 1, 2012, 11:50 pm

The bottom part of our outfield next to the rugby club house is saturated, when you walk on the outfield water splashes around your feet. We can only pray for the rain to stop and the sun or the wind to get up to help the ground to dry out. At this rate with no improvement in the weather we will be lucky to have a game on Saturday.
