‘Close Shave’ for Ushaw Moor Under 13’s Cricket Team

April 22, 2014 Leave a comment

Nothings left to chance when it comes to Ushaw Moor Under 13’s Cricket Team – in preparation for the 2014 season the squad decided to make sure the only ‘close shaves’ they get were at The Village Barber, not at the crease!


Team Manager, Norman Ferguson commented: “After being worthy Durham County League runners up last season the lads are determined to be at the top of their game in this year’s league. We formed the under 13’s and 15’s teams to encourage more young players into the game and are very pleased the team has been so successful.”


Iain Kane, of Village Barber Skin Products Ltd in Langley Park said: “I know we’re just having a laugh with the lads in the team, they are a great bunch, and I’m pleased to be able to sponsor them again this season with new cricket shirts. I hope it wasn’t too scary an experience for them. I’m always happy to spruce up their image with a shave and a haircut at The Village Barbers – who knows they might even start using my Shaving Oil and Balm when they get older!”


Iain has introduced his unique range of Village Barber Shaving Oil and Balm into the international market which is highly acclaimed by many of the world’s renowned professionals and recognised experts on shaving.


Iain comments: “With their cricket season due to open on Monday May 7th, the Ushaw Moor under 13’s cricket team are raring to get going with their first match at home versus Langley Park – we wish them all the best.”


Ushaw Moor suffering from the elements – Cricket From Darlington and Stockton Times

Teams have now passed the half way point in their ‘regular’ season, but for several it seems like they haven’t even started.


Nowhere has the terrible weather been felt more acutely than at Ushaw Moor.


Club spokesman Micky Hayton explained: “We have managed to play just three games of any kind on our ground so far, that includes firsts, seconds and juniors.


“We are reliant on the council for ground maintenance and we fully understand the financial constraints they currently have.


“That is why we are trying to look at ways we can help with their permission, in particular we would like to put in some new drainage at the end of the season.


“Nine times out of ten the square’s fine, but we have a problem in certain parts of the outfield where the water gathers.”


The Moor became so desperate to play their home games a few weeks ago that they approached the league executive with a unique initiative – to play their home games at Maiden Castle in Durham while their own ground dried out.


After agreement was given the weather won that one as well and it was called off at ten in the morning.


With the forecast for this weekend not offering any solace to harassed clubs the Moor are desperate to get a home game in today against Tudhoe, but one thing the enforced lay-offs have done is clear up a few injury niggles.



“We’ve only played three league games but John Southeran managed to injure his ankle in one of those,” chuckled Hayton. “But the rest has done him good and he’s fit again, and Craig Usher is over his back problem.” The pair line up against a Tudhoe team that includes the returning Ian Grainger.

Ushaw Moor have a full squad to pick from – From The Northern Echo

The return of wicket keeper Stephen Bradwell to action means Willington are at full strength for their trip to Ushaw Moor, and the home game against Brandon.

In other team news Ushaw Moor have a full squad to pick from, as indeed do Crook, while Shildon welcome back Martin Howe and are hopeful Greg Upton will be free from work commitments to take his place for their matches at Langley Park today, and at home to Mainsforth tomorrow, this game brought forward from Monday.

Durham County League

Esh Winning are just one victory away from being crowned Durham County League champions after a 72-run success over Ushaw Moor took them 22 points clear of Brandon with just two matches left to play.

John Carmedy hit eight fours and two sixes in his 53 as Esh set a target of 198-9, but he had to hand centre stage to Eddie Watson who added five wickets to his own unbeaten half century as Esh won with ease.

A few weeks ago, Esh Winning were staring forlornly at the yawning Durham County League points gap up to then leaders Brandon. But after a couple of pieces of weather-related fortune, coupled with a loss of form by the favourites, Esh are two points clear with only three to play.

And with Brandon having to sit out today’s action, their rivals can put an almost unassailable stamp on the title if they win their home game against struggling Ushaw Moor. Paul Chivers is unavailable for the game, so Jonathan Hodgson’s return is untimely.

Norman Ferguson rings from Ushaw Moor Cricket Club, west of Durham. They’re having a clubhouse reunion on the evening of September 3, 50 years after Norman joined the club.

The speaker, says Norman, is Bulldog Billy Teesdale. So far as reasonably may ascertained, he’s serious. “Billy’s brilliant,” says Norman.
