On the 5th November we played our first game in this format against New Hartley at Ashington Sports Centre. New Hartley batted 1st and scored 112, we then batted and scored 193, with Ryan Hogg & Jonny Richards putting on a stand of 61 to help us win.

Indoor 8 a side competition
Nov 3, 2013, 10:21 am

We have entered a team in the 8 a side this year, it starts at 7pm on Tuesday 5/11/2013 at Ashington Sports Centre. We are Playing New Hartley, the game on before us starts at 6pm and this is Ashington CC U17 v Mitford CC.

It would be useful if our players turned up early and watched part of the game on before so we see how the other teams approach this type of game.

Not a game for the big, old guys as it will be pretty livley we would like to see all of our young guns turn out and play. Team contacts are Cory and Midge.

Remember it costs £3 per player and the money is to be paid to Tom Vickers at the end of our game. 

Cutting the Square
Oct 28, 2013, 10:02 pm

Sunday 27th October saw our grounds man cutting the square for the first time since we did our end of season work. We moved our germination sheets for the last time to cover our practice strips before they are put away for the winter.

We cut our square down to approx. 20 to 25mm with a rotary mover. This is the best growth of grass we have every had and we are very pleased that the weather has been good to us not like last year when the majority of our grass seed was washed into the outfield with all the rain and the subsequent floods.

2013 Season Sum Up
Oct 6, 2013, 7:27 pm

The 1st team finished 2nd bottom of the Premier League, which was just enough to hold onto our status in the top league, we finished with 6 wins, 1 more than the team above us (who we beat twice during the season home and away) however they picked up more bonus points. This result will give our club a 3rd consecutive year in the top league which is a club record.

2nd Team had a very good season with the clubs highest every finish with 3rd in the Divison 2 League just 4 points behind Blagdon Park the team in second place, who we beat at their place this season, both team finished with 14 wins.

Midweek team finished mid table in the League and won the RE Wood Shield.

Over all a great year for the club, the most enjoyable bit is the development of our youngsters, who have come on leaps and bounds this year and it looks good for the club next season if they can keep on improving.

Hopefully with a few new faces next season we will be able to compete more in the 1st team games which will also then straighten our second 2nd team.

Final game ends in defeat
Sep 23, 2013, 9:12 pm

1st’s travelled to Stocksfield looking for 4 wins on the bounce, we lost the toss and Stocksfield elected to bat, early on Cory Milburn took wickets and disrupted their start, however in came Alex Brown on the back of his 105 at our place he built an inning’s and played some very fine shots, we tried everything we had but could not get him out he finished with 107 not out and his 100 came off a big six back over the bowlers head, with only 2 balls left in their innings, they ended up 229 for 9.

Our bowling Dean Greaves 12 overs, 1 wicket for 34 runs, Cory Milburn 13 overs, 3 wickets for 51 runs, Lewis Tanney 13 overs, 4 wickets for 76 runs and Matty Tanney 12 overs, 1 wicket for 61 runs.

We went into bat with confidence of our previous 3 games of chasing scores; however we lost wickets at regular intervals and found it hard to get going mainly through the quality of the bowling. Ben Hutton bowled very well quickly with a lot of late swing he took 4 wickets in 9.3 overs for only 27 runs. Matty Tanney hit a quick fire 20, Cory Milburn 20 and Lewis Tanney 25 were the only batsmen who scored above 20. We ended up all out for 124. Disappointed showing but at least we showed some sprit in the final 4 games and survived in the league for another season which is a great effort for our club.


Stocksfield CC 30 points and Ashington RCC 5 points.

The last pair of Telford and Gragg put on 30 runs to take them to all out for 147.

Cory Milburn and Lewis Tanney as they have done a number of times this season built a good partnership Cory finished on 20 off 24 balls with 4 / 4s, Lewis finished on 34 not out off 41 balls with 3 / 4s and 2 / 6s we finished on 148 for 6 winning our 3rd game in a row.
