Rain stops the cricket
Jul 18, 2019, 1:15 pm


Saturday 13th July our 1st team entertained Wickham CC  for our Division 3 clash, Wickham won the toss and elected to bat and before they got onto the outfield the rain came down and did not stop for hours which led to the game being abandoned no play.

Our 2nd team travelled to Kirkley CC for our league fixture we won the toss and elected to bat on a damp overcast day, early on their bowlers caused our openers Captain Stu Rosser and Paul Milburn to battle hard in the first 10 overs to see the new ball off, that they did and when the rain eventually came we were 78 for 0 wickets after 16 overs, with Stu 37 and Paul 18 the rest were byes. Game were rained off with the ground not being fit after a few hours of rain. That meant we were still top of the league 43 points ahead of second place.

Kirkley CC 8 points and Ashington Rugby CC 8 points

Both teams win

Saturday 5th July saw our 1st team travel to Benwell & Walbottle CC we lost the toss and they elected to bat, bolstered with their Pro Syed Raza back at the club for his 1st game of the season, he did not disappoint hitting a good 106 before being caught on the boundary, he was the only one who scored more than 20 they posted 193 for 7 in the allotted 50 overs.

Our bowlers Dean Greaves 12 overs 1 wicket for 23 runs, Cory Milburn 8 overs 1 wicket for 35 runs, James Richards 12 overs 0 wickets for 44 runs, Mark Lawrence 12 overs 3 wickets for 34 runs, Craig Jobson 6 overs 1 wicket for 39 runs.

Our run chase did not start well losing opener Callum Milburn for 0 with the score on 10, Matty Tanney and Adam Peacock put on a small partnership moving the score to 53 before Adam was out LBW, in came captain David Dent who quickly saw his partner Matty Tanney out in 16runs added with the score on 59 for 3. Jay Little was next in and he batted well before our captain was out for 22 with the score on 93 for 4. Jay hit a great knock of 52 before being caught and bowled by their Pro not before he and Cory Milburn moved the score to 153 for 6. Nervous times as we lost wickets the scores were close and Dean Greaves came to the rescue along with Craig Jobson who held our innings together being our last wicket Dean hit a cover drive for 4 to win us the game.

Our 2nds were at home with the visitors being Civil Service CC, big thanks to all of our lads who rallied to help the club with the team being missing 6 players. We won the toss and believe it or not the captain decided to bowl on a good looking wicket, mainly as we had only three recognised batsmen.

We struggled to take wickets on the wicket and they scored 169 for 4, G. Hunter 57 not out and A. Sheik a big hitting 65.

Our bowlers Oven Mason 9 overs 1 wicket for 30 runs, Ricky Gibson 9 overs 1 wicket for 27 runs both bowled better than their figures show, Paul Milburn 9 overs 1 wicket for 34 runs, Trevor Elliott 9 overs 1 wicket for 45 runs, Michael Adamson 4 overs 0 wickets for 26 runs.

Our captain was going to split our batting order up however after a conversation with a few elder statesmen he decided to keep it the same. Captain Stu Rosser and Paul Milburn opened up and they played themselves in and then hit the bad ball, gradually we pushed the score on and both players looked in fine form enough to see us through to a 10 wicket win, Stu on 95 not out and Paul on 70 not out.

Our 2nd team also travelled away this week to play local rivals Bomarsund CC for our second T20 Big Bash fixture. We lost the toss and surprisingly we were put into bat on a very hot and humid day. We opened up with Paul Milburn and Jay Little, Jay put Bomar’s bowlers to all parts to the ground especially destructive on the leg side hitting numerous boundaries he finished off with 84 not out he was supported by his opening partner who hit 40 not out, we totalled 155 for 0 wickets at the end of our allocated 20 overs. Bomars bowling did not help themselves by bowling 31 extras 16 or which were wides.

The Rugger boys bowling was nice and tight lines giving few opportunities to the Bomar’s batters they ended up 86 for 9 off their 20 overs, their only batters to score double figures was A. McTaggart 16, G. Bell 20 and M. Seccombe 20.

Our bowlers Oven Mason 5 overs 1 wicket for 12 runs, Ricky Gibson 5 overs 2 wickets 27 runs, Craig Jobson 3 overs 2 wickets for 12 runs, Trevor Elliott 4 overs 3 wickets for 1 runs,  Oven Jarvis 2 overs 0 wickets for 12 runs,  Jonny Richards 1 over 1 wicket for 4 runs.

Great win which should put us through to finals day on 14th September with one game to play.

Our run chase started well with Matty Tanney and Mark Lawrence opening the batting, Matty not out with 44, Mark hit 25, Adam Peacock 13 and captain David Dent 41 not out saw us through to a successful run chase reaching a target of 142 for 2 off 19.4 overs.

1st lose 2nds win

Saturday 22nd June on a warm sunny day our 1st team welcomed Blagdon Park CC to the “REC”, we lost the toss and not surprisingly Blagdon elected to bat on a wicket that looked like a road.

We made a fair start considering we had three 1st team players missing, taking early wickets first wicket on 11 ruins, second on 35 but then a good stand of 96 before the third wicket fell on 131.

M. Foster with 77, N. Clough with 45, D. Gibson 33 not out and P. Johnson 23 not out pushed their score to 213 for 6 wickets.

Our bowlers D. Greaves 12 overs 1 wicket for 29 runs, James Richards 8 overs, 1 wicket for 27, Craig Jobson 6 overs, 0 wickets for 44 runs, and the pick of our bowlers was Mark Lawrence 12 overs 4 wickets for 38 runs, Scott Maddison 11 overs 0 wickets for 62 runs.

We had a bad start losing wickets early on we lost our 1st wicket on 11, 2nd on 50, 3rd on 76, 4th on 81 and 5th on 138 after that we lost our last 5 wickets for a very poor 9 runs eventually being bowled out for 147 after 43.4 overs. The frustration being if we batted out the overs and reached 150 or 175 we would have picked up additional bonus points.

We had one shining light that was Adam Peacock who played a fantastic innings posting a very tidy 94 before being stumped, when he was at the crease we had a chance, the only other players who hit double figures was Matty Tanney 16 and Dean Hardy 12.

Our 2nd team had to play our game on Sunday 23rd due to a mistake with the fixtures by the league, our game was the first of the T20 Big Bash matches, and we won the toss and elected to bowl.

Missing our opening bowler who was drafted into our first team, we opened up with Owen Mason who bowled his 5 overs taking 1 wicket for 20 runs, Ricky Gibson 5 overs, 3 wickets for 27 runs, Oven Jarvis 5 overs 3 wickets for 38 runs and Trevor Elliott 4.4 overs 3 wickets for 15 runs, this restricted Blyth CC to 100 all out. Blyth’s main run scorers were S. Singh 33 and R. Carrigan 36

Our run chase started well openers Paul Milburn and Michael (Midge) Adamson scoring off the bad balls we kept the runs ticking over and put pressure on Blyth’s fielders. Midge was eventually out LBW to Surge Singh for 25, in came Gareth (Spike) Newman who hung around but was then caught for 5. In marched Jonny Richards who is his way attacked the bowling eventually hitting the winning runs with a boundary four when we reached our total of 104 for 2 after 16.1 overs. Paul finished on 50 not out and Jonny with 11 not out.
