United In Cricket

The club gave a warm welcome on Wednesday afternoon to a group of 12 teenagers who joined some of our own boys and girls in a joyful celebration of cricket. The event was organised in association with Charlbury Refugee Action Group (CRAG) who give support to young asylum refugees from countries like Afghanisatn, Syria, Eritrea, Sudan and Botswana. They are based in Oxford and came to Charlbury by train with CRAG support worker Helena Cullen. With a warm-up game of football the teenagers got know each other and then split off into groups to practise batting, bowling and fielding drills with trained coaches. Then after a traditional pavilion tea, they rounded off the afternoon with a game of continuous cricket with plenty of big hitting and splendid catching skills. We are grateful to CRAG for asking us to host the event – and liven up a school holiday afternoon with children from many nationalities getting to know each other through sport. Our thanks also to Charlbury coaches Mike Geeson-Brown and Paul Quibell-Smith, and Oxfordshire Cricket Board’s Shaz Khan.

The Spirit of Cricket

Having a rest from league cricket Charlbury 3rds took on touring team Ivanhoe at Jesus College , Oxford in early July. Having the greater number of overs, Charlbury posted 190-4 with 73 not out from Ali Harley and 50 not out from Robert Jenkins, his first senior half century. Ivanhoe, in return, battled hard to keep there wickets in tact with a few less overs to bat and the game concluded in a credible draw.

Philip Parnell, tour organiser stated

“We thoroughly enjoyed the match – it was played in exactly the right spirit and made for a really fun afternoon for all. Please pass on our thanks to your team. The Ivanhoe guys have all made a point of saying how much they really enjoyed and appreciated the game and how it was played – even the pink balls ! Our two young lads, Tristan and Dexter, we’re both thrilled to have the chance to bat – thank you for accommodating them; it was a real highlight.

Good Luck, Charlbury CC Women’s Team

Good Luck, Charlbury CC Women’s Team

On behalf of MCC, I send my best wishes to Charlbury Cricket Club women’s team for their tour to Sri Lanka.

An overseas tour presents fresh and exciting opportunities for any cricketer. The challenge of coming to grips with unfamiliar conditions is tempered by the camaraderie that is forged amongst teammates sharing the highs and lows that the game of cricket brings. Firm friendships will be built and your team will be all the stronger for the experience upon their return.

Sri Lanka is a beautiful country. I have been lucky enough to visit the island on a number of occasions and each time I have been overwhelmed by the warmth and friendliness of the Sri Lankan people.

Over a decade ago, the island was hit by the devastating 2004 Boxing Day tsunami. The cricketing world banded together to provide aid to the country and MCC was at the forefront of the effort, providing funds for an all-encompassing community programme provided by the Foundation of Goodness at Seenigama, near Galle. I was delighted to learn that Charlbury Women will be volunteering with the Foundation during the tour and I have no doubt that you will be inspired by the people whom you will be working alongside.

An overseas tour is also the sign of a thriving club and I hope that the Women & Girls’ section at Charlbury C.C. goes from strength to strength.
