However the new name of Ashington Rugby Cricket Club brings new optimism to our club, we have played cricket at the Ashington Recreation Ground "Rec" or more commonly known as the Rugby Ground for over 25years and in this time we have worked closely together in managing the facilities.

The Rugby club gives our members its first real club house since our conception back in 1982, no more will visiting and home players have to travel away from the facilities to enjoy a after match drink. We have used the club facilities before and they offer a club house to be proud of especially following its recent refurbishment.

With a new name brings a complete new clothing range which our club will subsides its members with the members only having to play a quarter of the actuall costs, this generous offer will give all its members a chance to play in the new clubs name clothing.

Our club was awarded grant aid to the sum of £20K from the SITA Trust Enhancing Communities Large Grants Scheme. This money was put to good use in purchasing a ISEKI Compact Tractor with Grass Cutting Discharge Deck and Grass Collecting with dump facilities.

This tractor will be used to support the various clubs who use the "Rec" such as Ashington Rugby Club, Green Lane Archers, Ellington Juniors Football Club and ourselves.

We need to work together to continue to provide good facilities to be proud of and this Tractor goes a long way in doing so. Without this tractor we the users would have struggled to maintain the vast grassed areas we have at our disposal.

On behalf of all the user groups Northern Social Cricket Club would like to offer our many thanks to SITA Trust, it is hard to put into words how much this grant means to all of us.
