At an EGM last evening (Wednesday 9th August) held in the clubhouse, the members voted to apply to join the Cherwell League in 2018. We have received a formal invitation from the CL committee who will recomend that Charlbury should join the league and this will be voted on by the CL member clubs at their AGM on the 23rd November 2017, where 66% of the clubs have to agree to the application.
This is a major move for the club and will need total committment from the players and members, and there are a good number of matters to be resolved to ensure the smooth transistion, and we will be looking to the ‘younger club members’ to step up and take on some of the responsibilities from those who have been involved in the club for more years “than they care to remember”…
The 3rd team will remain in the Oxfordshire Cricket Association (OCA) and will continue to be a development team for our youth players, alongside some of the more senior players.
