New Beginnings
Apr 25, 2009, 6:10 am
Saturday sees the return of competitive Saturday cricket for both of our clubs sides.   The 1st team will hope to at least get at least a start against their local rivals Stobswood at the Rugby Club after the last 5 encounters have been washed out without a ball being bowled while the 2nds face a daunting trip to champions Whitley Bay in the Beverley Smith Cup.
Once again this season we we will have arguably the best playing facilities in all 3 divisons and thanks must go to Groundsman Paul for the long shifts he has already put in up there to get it in its current state. 


Chris Harwood will captain the 1st team again for the 4th season assisted by Dean Greaves while Steve Henderson and Rob Clark do the honours for the 2nd's after steering a young side to promotion last season.


The club will have to do without the services of Matty Storey this season who has re joined Ashington, Martin Seccombe who has relocated to Derby and Nigel Little Jnr (Bomarsund) and Snr (Retired).


In come batsmen Michael Watson (who's debut will be delayed due to tendonitis in the elbow) Seamer Kirk Newton and Spinner Dan Jordan, the latter will make their 1st team debuts on Saturday.

Good win for young guns!
Apr 25, 2009, 5:46 am

A youthful Midweek side picked up theirs and the clubs 1st competitive win of the season against Warkworth on Wednesday night.


James Richards side managed 96 off their 16 overs with runs shared round evenly, the captain himself top scoring (yes really).


In reply Warkworth managed only 89 to leave our lads victors by six runs with 15 year old seamer Tom Stokoe the pick of the bowlers.


All in all an excellent start from the lads who fielded only 3 players over the age of 20 and fair play to Warkworth also who put out a similarly youthful side.   Lets hope other clubs in the division will follow the example set on Wednesday night and a competitive season with young players developing could be on the cards.        


Fireworks from Captain Tanney in pre season Friendly
Apr 25, 2009, 5:35 am

Matty Tanney smashed an incredible four sixes in the final over of the inter club friendly; the traditional season curtain raiser to win it for his side.   Callum Milburn was the unlucky bowler going for 26 when victory looked assured!


On a bright but chilly day 18 Year olds Tanney and James Richards were given the opportunity to captain the two sides in preparation for them leading the midweek team this season.


‘Team Richards' batted 1st scoring 156 for 7 off their allotted 32 overs, the ‘evergreen' Kevin Hetherington lead the way with 43 backed up by an encouraging knock of 32 from 16 year old Chris Smiles with notable contributions also coming from ‘Midge' Adamson and a late Cameo from Davey Wanless Snr.   Six bowlers were used, the pick of them being new signing Kirk Newton who extracted some extravagant movement from the pitch!


A circumspect beginning from ‘team Tanney' by openers Dean Hardy and Mick Watson against some accurate bowling from Dean Greaves and Richards saw the scoreboard tick slowly along until the introduction of the change bowlers.   Watson was run out but Hardy supported by Paul Milburn then Chris Harwood manoeuvred his side within sight of victory.   However once Hardy retired at 50 and Harwood lost his stumps to Callum Milburn the pendulum swung once more leaving Lewis Tanney accompanying his brother Matty at the crease to witness his final over heroics!


A good day was had by all and some useful game time accrued for those able to play!

Another member joins our junior coaching team

Well done Chris Grey on passing your UKCC level 1 Coaching Badge.
What is great to see is the development of our club with the younger members looking to take an active role in supporting the club with its junior coaching. 
We must at this stage pass our thanks to the British Beer and Pub Association for funding our recent coaching courses with grant aid. 

Groundsman starts early this season
Mar 1, 2009, 8:56 pm
Saturday 28th February our groundsman must of had plenty time on his hands, he was seen at the ground at 8:00am with his toys out!!!!!!!!!!!!
The square had its first roll and its early season treatment with fertillzer.
Then the outfiled had its first cut and it looks good, last year we left it too late and ended up raking the loose grass, not this year.

Youngest Captain and Vice Captain in club history
Feb 25, 2009, 11:45 pm
Following our recent club AGM James Richards and Mathew Tanney both only just turned 18 years of age were elected as Captain and Vice Captain respectively for our midweek team who play on Wednesday evenings.
We aim to follow on from previous seasons and give our juniors the chance to play senior cricket. If you do not give them a try out how will they get the chance to show what they are made of.
This year we will probably field the youngest team in the competition, the problem will be transporting the lads to the games (parents be warned)
Remember it is not all about winning it is about developing our younger members into senior cricket as they are our life blood of the club.

Good Luck Matty

Northern SCC members would like to wish Mathew Storey all the best for 2009 as he has returned to his roots at Ashington CC, where he played as a junior.
Matty had 2 good years with us and he goes with the blessing of all at our club, he will be missed not just for his ability on the pitch as a leg spinner and his batting. Matty will also be missed for his banter on and off the pitch "Nickname Maker" or "Motor Mouth".
If things do not go as planned Matty is more than welcome to return.
Good Luck Marra!!!!!!!!!
