John Jessop

John made his debut for the club in 1982, coming through from the juniors. In 1986 he scored 86 in the match against the MCC, the only time Ponteland recorded victory in the fixture, despite being set 242 to win. Over a double weekend in 1990 scored back to back league centuries for the 2XI, both at Ponteland. The first, 132, against Ellington was in a partnership of 230 for the 2nd wicket with James Sayers. The second, 111, against Northern Electric chasing a target of 177. the only time a player has scored centuries on consecutive days for the Club and the first player to score 2 centuries in a row (Brett Elliott repeated the feat 4 weeks later in the 1XI, with John contributing 45 to a 118 run partnership in the second game). Injury in a cup game in 2003 restricted John to just 1 game in the 2004 season before returning to the 2XI in 2005 for 2 years retiring in 2007.
