Rugger Boys Join Fantasy Cricket League
Feb 6, 2018, 8:57 pm

Our club has signed up to the Fantasy Cricket League, for some fun and at the same time raise funds for our club.

Each team is £10 per entry. Funds raised will go towards the club's running costs, upkeep of our ground, clubhouse and facilties to ensure we can all continue to enjoy playing our cricket each summer. There will also be a minimum prize of £100 to the winner.

Team Fee's can be brought to winter nets or transferred to Adam Peacock. 

To enter a team or view the teams alreday set up in our club page click on the link below



  • There can be only one team entered per registered user account.

  • Each team shall have a value of no more than £35 million.

  • Managers may enter a team at any point during the season, although in order to score points for the first gameweek, teams must be submitted before the Season Start date. Thereafter, entries will start scoring points from the gameweek after they were entered and points will not be backdated.


  • The gameweek will advance every Saturday at midday; the same time as transfers and captain changes are processed.

  • For the purpose of viewing league standings by month, gameweeks that span two months will count for the month that they started in.

Transfers and Captain Changes

  • Managers may alter their teams at any point during the Season. A total of 1 free transfer is available each week and additional transfers are permitted, but will incur a cost of -20 points per transfer. When a captain is transferred out of a team, the team will be without a captain and a new one should be selected.

  • Transfers and captain changes may be submitted at any time but will not take effect until midday the following Saturday, so they are active for the upcoming gameweek.

  • Please note that transfers are free and unlimited up until midday on the date of the first match.

  • Should a players value increase at any point during the season, then teams who have selected that player shall recieve the difference as additional budget when making transfers.

  • Should a players value decrease, teams will lose that amount from their transfer budget (as long as the budget remains above the original limit).

Team Selection

  • The players included on the selection list and their values will be determined by the League Administrator.

  • Each team can select a captain who will earn double points each week. You may change your captain each week if you wish.

  • Each team must contain 6 players and the make-up of each team is flexible in terms of how many players can be selected from each position. Other than a compulsory wicket-keeper, team managers may select any number of batters and bowlers up to a maximim of 3 from each position, and up to 2 all rounders.


  • All players are eligible to earn points of any type. Batters will get points for taking wickets and bowlers will get points for scoring runs.

  • Players will score points as detailed below:


1 points per run
10 points for a not out
20 points for scoring 50+ runs
40 points for scoring 100+ runs
-20 points for scoring a duck

All Stars Cricket
Jan 31, 2018, 9:08 pm

Our club has signed up to the All Stars program this season and we are really looking forward to seeing young children using our facilities.

We have a number of playing members along with our coaches who want to become activators to help run the 8 week program.

With the help from the Northumberland Cricket Board we will be hosting a free taster session on Tuesday 1st May starting at 6pm till 7pm.

Our 8 week program then starts Tuesday 15th May starting at 6pm till 7pm running up to and including 3rd July.

By registering for All Stars Cricket, the children will be guaranteed eight weeks of jam packed fun, activity and skills development.

The programme is suitable for all children aged 5 to 8, new to cricket and sport as the sessions are designed to teach the basic skills of the game. Every child will earn stars as the weeks progress that match the skills learned during the programme:  

  • Batting – hitting a moving ball
  • Throwing – underarm and overarm
  • Catching – small and large balls
  • Bowling – overarm
  • Running – lots of movement
  • Teamwork – fun games with friends
  • Communication – the basics of cricket
  • Spirit of Cricket – how to respect others

First Net
Jan 30, 2018, 9:01 pm

29th January saw our members rock up to the Bede School in Blyth for our first indoor net to blow away the cob webs. Not a bad turnout for the first one.

Just wonder how many are sore on Tuesday and Wednesday, especially the old guard.
