I am relishing the challenge we have ahead of ourselves going into my 18th season at Oxford Downs. Year on year we seem to increase participation in all 3 teams, challenge the 1st XI positions more and more and seem to have a higher chance of promotion each year compared to the last. The squad for the 2018 season is deep and talented therefore it won’t surprise you when I say our goal is to win the Division 1 title this year and gain promotion.
We have two overseas players joining us, three old faces to all compete for 1st team places and a few fresh ones to keep the current players on their toes. Training regularly, committing to the club and playing hard is what I am asking of the players this year but most importantly for all 11 players on each team to enjoy the game we all love.
