1st win a tight cup game
Jun 7, 2019, 7:29 pm


Wednesday 5th June saw our 1st team welcome Warkworth CC to the “REC” for a second round of the William Birkett Memorial Cup, Warkworth won the toss and elected to bat on a great looking wicket and outfield. The big attraction to the game was Kamran Mansoor,   Warkworth’s new professional he did not disappoint with some big hitting in his 72 off 54 balls with 8 fours and 3 sixes before being caught and bowled by Captain Mark Lawrence with the total on 116 when he was out, Warkworth eventually finished their 20 overs with 139 for 8 a great fight back by the Rugger boys but also a formidable total by Warkworth.

Greaves taking 3 wickets for the Rugger boys for 26 runs off his 5 overs, 2 wickets each for Mark Lawrence and Scott Maddison and 1 for Craig Jobson.

Our run chased did not start well losing opener Matthew Tanney with the score on 4 in the first over. The partnership for Ash was between Callum Milburn with 26 and a fine 69 by Adam Peacock leaving Craig Jobson to hit the winning runs with 5 balls left with our total of 140 for 6. What a great display by Ashington Rugby CC chasing down a good total and what a game of cricket for the spectators.

Next round is an away tie at Berwick CC.

Both teams win

Saturday 1st June saw our 1st team travel to Chopwell to play GEMS CC, we lost the toss and were put into bat on a damp wet overcast day with rain in the air, just before the game was due to start it rained so the game was delayed and we lost 2 overs. In our 48 overs we posted a good total of 237 for 8.

Dean Hardy and Matthew Tanney put on 44 before Dean was out caught on 16. Adam Peacock was next one out on 13 bowled with our total on 91 for 2 wickets. Then started a great partnership between Matthew and Callum Milburn they pushed the score onto 196 for 3 when Matthew was out for a good 86 including 10 fours and 1 six. That was the start of a collapse Callum fell on 68 with no runs added to the score Callum hit 5 fours and 4 sixes (one of those was classed as massive by the crowd) we lost 2 more wickets with only 2 runs added to the total 198 for 6. Captain Cory Milburn then came in and steadied the ship for a short while at the same time the club trying to push the runs on, Cory was out on 29 with the total on 237 in the final few balls.

GEMS CC run chased started off well before Greaves removed their top 4 batsmen Omer Hussain top scored with 37 from those. Zhoaib Shahid went off like a train hitting anything in his V he was eventually out for 68 hitting 12 fours and 1 six he was out caught wicket keeper Tanney off Captain Cory Milburn bowling. GEMS innings finished 195 all out off 39.2 overs.

Dean Greaves was the outstanding bowler with 4 wickets for 48 off 12 overs, James Richards took 3 wickets for 15 runs off his 6 overs.

Great win for Ashington Rugby CC 30 points GEMS CC 8 points.


Our 2nd team welcomed Monkseaton CC to the “REC” we lost the toss and were asked to bat on an overcast day, something their captain regretted after our 40 overs with us hitting 261 for 0 wickets, once again captain Stu Rosser was in the runs hitting his third century 5 knocks scoring 125 not out, 19 fours and 2 sixes.  He was supported at the other end by Paul Milburn who hit 17 fours and 1 six on his total of 120 not out. A record opening partnership for the club as well as a record any wicket partnership.

Monkseaton CC made tough going early on losing a few quick wickets only Richard Hughes with 24, David Tate with 31 and Jonathan Ainsley with 11 made it to double figures. Eventually finishing 110 for 9 off the allotted 40 overs.

Our bowlers with wickets was; Ricky Gibson 3 wickets for 28 runs off 9 overs, Trevor Elliott 1 wicket for 12 off 9 overs, David Wanless Snr 3 wickets for 12 off his 9 overs, Owen Jarvis 1 wicket for 10 and Ant Elliott 1 wicket for 11.

That is now 7 straight wins with us sitting 48 points clear at the top of the league, great start to the season.

Saturday 25th May saw our 1st team welcome Cramlington CC 1st to the “Rec” for their division 3 encounter. We won the toss and elected to bowl on a damp overcast day with lots of rain due.

We had a great start with Cramlington losing their first 3 batsmen to the pace of Cory Milburn, they lost the 1st wicket on 7, 2nd wicket on 26 and 3rd wicket on 26, Dean Greaves then removed Seddon with only 1 more run being added to the total at 27 for 4 it looked good for the Rugger boys however a partnership of 91 between Pullman 46 and Kay 78 for Cramlington pushed the score onto 118 for 5 it took captain Cory Milburn to return to finish off his overs to remove Pullman he then removed Wilkinson for a 1st ball duck.  Cramlington eventually finished off 129 for 7 off the 42 overs bowled. No further play was allowed due the heavy rain, game was finished off abandoned due to rain.

Ashington Rugby CC 11 points and Cramlington CC 11 points.


Our 2nds travelled to Corbridge CC not knowing if we could get a game in we won the toss and put them into bat with one eye on the weather looking at bowling bonus points. On a good looking wicket our opening bowlers struggled to make any head way and with opener Craig Jobson having to stop bowling due to and injury. Veteran Paul Milburn turned his arm over in a tough day for bowlers only 3 wickets fell with Corbridge posting a good total of 213 for 3.

Our wicket takers were Paul Milburn 2 wickets for 28 runs off 9 overs, Ricky Gibson 1 wicket for 55 runs off 8 overs.

We started steady before losing Paul Milburn for 10 in came, Jonny Richards to partner captain Stu Rosser they betted very well putting away any wide deliveries, Stu hit 15 fours in his 112 not out Jonny hitting 11 fours in his 78 not out we reached the target with 5 overs to spare.

Corbridge CC 5 points Ashington Rugby CC 26 points

Saturday 18th May saw our 1st team travel to Corbridge for their Division 3 league game. With a number of key players missing (batsmen) we lost the toss and were put to bat on a damp overcast day. We posted a score of 173 for 7 from our 50 overs. Lewis Tanney top scored with a fine 55 not out he was supported by Callum Milburn on 30, Jay Little on 33.

Corbridge reply was slowed down with them losing two quick wickets the first on 3 runs and the second on 14 runs, they then started with a few partnerships C. Fowler scored 25, M. Thompson 45 and M. Sewell on 65 not out they ended up reaching 177 for 5 from 45.3 overs.

D. Greaves 2 wickets for 43, C. Milburn 2 wickets for 36 and S. Maddison 1 wicket for 36 runs.

Great effort but not enough runs on the board.

Corbridge CC 28 points Ashington Rugby CC 5 points.


Our 2nd team hosted Bomarsund CC in a top of the table clash both teams undefeated from their first 4 games. The Rugger boys won the toss and put on Bomar on a good wicket, the thinking was the overcast conditions and the potential rain that was forecasted and we could look to pick up bowling bonus points.  The rain did not come and we played a full 40 over game.

Bomar put on a good opening partnership with B. Modey with 18 and P. Smith on 41 Bomar posted 149 for 5. D. Wanless 2 wickets for 29 runs, R. Gibson 1 for 37, T. Elliott 1 for 24, O. Mason 1 for 30 and the unlucky C. Jobson 0 wickets from his 9 overs for 15 runs.

Our opening pair of Captain S. Rosser and S. Henderson batted through and reached the target after 33 overs unbeaten. S. Rosser 96 not out and S. Henderson 40 not out.

Ashington Rugby CC 27 points Bomarsund CC 4 points

Both teams win

Saturday 11th May our 1st team hosted Bomarsund CC, Bomar won the toss and elected to bat on a good wicket.  Our club had 7 players not available for carious reason including the rugby final at St. James Park. They were eventually 135 for 9 off 47 overs in a rain effected game, S. Thain top scored with 42 which was well below par for the wicket but credit goes to our bowlers.

Mark Lawrence 5 wickets for 12 runs, James Richards 2 for 41 and Cory Milburn 2 for 24.

Our run chase started off badly with our first wicket gone for 1 run on the board our second down for 8 runs, our third down for 9 runs before Adam Peacock with a fine 67 not out and supported by Jay Little with 14 and Chris Harwood with 12 and then Cory Milburn with 28 not out saw us through. To 138 for 5.

L. Besford for Bomar bowled well taking 4 for 27 off 11 overs.

 Ashington Rugby CC 29 points and Bomarsund CC 4 points.   


Our 2nd team were away to GEMS CC at Chopwell with a much weakened team we lost the toss gain and were put in on a damp track. A good knock from Paul Milburn with 98 not out helped us to a total of 184 for 2 wickets ably supported by S. Henderson 20 and R. Pringle with 33.

At the start we only had 23 runs on the board after 15 overs due to the top coming off the wicket, but we dug in and slowly pushed the score on later on.

We bowled GEMS out for 114 after 33.2 overs with R. Kaira hitting 63 in no time at all.

Our bowlers who did the damage C. Jobson 1 wicket for 30 runs, D. Wanless 2 for 29, T. Elliott 2 for 22 and R. Gibson 2 for 14.

A great win with a weakened team.

GEMS CC 3 points Ashington Rugby CC 30 points.

Saturday 4th May our 1st team hosted Whitley Bay at the Rec we batted first and set a score of 223 for 7 from our 49 overs. Star performer was Lewis Tanney with a majestic 82 supported by Adam Peacock with 32 and Cory Milburn with 35 not out.


Whitley Bay's innings ended up 115 all out only Kirk with 37 and Virpura 36 made an impression after that it was a case of dropping anchor and killing time in the hope of a draw. Pick of our bowlers was Scott Maddison with 5 wickets for 26 runs in 8.2 overs, Mark Lawrence 2 for 32 in 11 overs, David Dent 1 wicket for 1 run in 1 over, Cory Milburn 1 for 22 off 11 overs Dean Greaves 11 overs 0 wickets for 14 runs.


Ashington Rugby CC 30 points Whitley Bay 4 points  


Ashington RCC 2nds made the short journey to play Blyth CC 2nds at Plessey Road on a day that the forecast wasn’t favourable to playing cricket, Blyth CC 2nds won the toss and asked Ashington RCC 2nds to bat on what looked to be a half decent pitch. With conditions bitterly cold due to a chilling wind coupled with the rain showers, Ashington RCC 2nds batted sensibly against what was the best bowling attack so far this season posting an imposing score of 202-5 in 40 overs which was mainly due to an excellent innings from Paul Milburn (91 not out) with assistance from Kevin Hetherington (23), Craig Jobson (21) and Owain Jarvis (21 not out).


In reply, Blyth CC 2nds started positively with the bat but with the tight bowling of Davey Wanless Snr (9-3-22-2) and Trevor Elliot (9-0-17-4) plus the impact of the weather conditions, rain interruptions continued to restrict the runs but a late rally from the Blyth CC 2nds batsmen pushed the final score to 168-8 in there 40 overs.


Ashington Rugby CC 2nds 29 points – Blyth CC 2nds 7 points
