Bedlington Cricket Club 1936

Recommended Posts

Cames across this medal which belonged to me father George Johnstone.  The medal is inscribed Bedlington CC 1936.  I knew my father played for West Seekburn 2nd XI who were League Champions in 1931 and have a photo of that team.  I was not aware my father played for Beblington CC.  Any 1936 photos out there?

Never seen any posted on any of the sites @Rigger. Some names that have been associated with Bedlington Cricket Club throughtout the 20th century are Hemsted - Straker and Pearson. There are a couple of relatives of these familes eg - Mal Jovi Hemsted on the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group that might be able to help you.

Bedlington Cricket Club do have a web site but there are no historical records on that site  :-  http://bedlington.play-cricket.com/

Thanks for your help.  Will give give it a try.  The names you mention associated with Bedlington CC I can just remember from the the distant past!  I remember working with a guy at Dr Pit called Bill Anderson, a Terrier breeder, he was a wicket keeper at Bedlington CC at one time with the nickname 'hands'.  I was never sure if it was a compliment!!

Just remembered - I once played in a Bedlington CC medal competition, about 1967 for the 'Butchers X1 ( I was dating George Hemsted's daughter) and got talked into it. The late Keith Lockey started a topic about this competition back in 2014 :-  https://www.bedlington.co.uk/forums/topic/5298-bedlington-cricket-trophy/?tab=comments#comment-54251

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
