The great thing about hitting is not to be half-hearted about it but when you make up your mind to hit, do it as if the whole match depended on that particular stroke.

Senior Teams

We field 5 Cricket Teams Teams of varying ability on a regular basis.

1 XI Team – Saturday Cricket

The 1st XI play in the Cherwell League Division 1, and is the place that we play our most competitive cricket.

2 XI Team – Saturday Cricket

Our 2nd XI play competitive cricket in Division 3.

3 XI Team – Saturday Cricket

Our 3 XI play in Division 9 and the team provides an important bridge between junior cricket and league cricket. We aim to play a mix of junior players with more senior players in every game.

Sunday Cricket

We are fortunate in being one of the few clubs that fields a regular Sunday team. Suitable for those not able to commit to regular Saturday cricket for various reasons, we have a full Sunday fixture list at the club. Most of our games are home games and our Sunday teams has a regular band of followers and supporters.

The Black Sheep

The Black Sheep occasional social cricketing side, where the emphasis is on social. We aim to play once a month during the season with the players being taken from a range of players including those who have never held a cricket bat before.
