OCA Presentation Evening – Friday 10th November 2017

The venue for this is the Kassam Conference Centre in Oxford and is open to all OCA clubs, members, wives, partners, friends and umpires, so we hope that a good number from Charlbury CC will be able to attend, to celebrate their fantastic year of cricket.

Tickets are £32.50 per person and can be obtained from Colin Olliffe, but full details will be made available in the next week, so please watch this space.

Proposal for ‘new’ Chairman of Charlbury C.C.

The current Club Chairman will be standing down from this role as from the AGM on Sunday 22nd October 2017, and a proposal has been received for Tom Eaton to stand for election on this evening.

Other proposals for this important role should be sent to Colin Olliffe prior to the meeting, and can include club members to stand for other roles in the management structure of the club, and it will be particularly good for the younger generation to be involved in this.

We do hope that as many as possible will attend the Annual General Meeting, which will be held in the club pavilion, commencing at 7.30pm on Sunday 22nd October.

Great season for ALL the Charlbury teams…

Now that the final matches have been played, we can look back on a very successful season for all the three teams in the OCA, with the 1st team winning Division One, the 2nd team ‘Runners Up’ in Division 6 and the 3rd team in third place in Division 8….

Well done to all the captains and players who have taken part in this seasons matches and wishing the 1st and 2nd teams the very best as they move into the Cherwell League in 2018, and we look to good things happening with the 3rd team as they remain in the OCA.

Colin Olliffe – Chairman CCC

Congratulations to Charlbury 1st XI on winning the OCA Division One Title.

Congratulations to Josh Hornsby for his captaincy of the first XI this season and for providing some silverware for the club before the 1st and 2nds move into the Cherwell League. Also to all the players who have taken part week by week to achieve this great result.

We hope that all the players and those from the other teams will want to attend the OCA Presentation Dinner on Friday, 10th November at the Kassam Conference Centre – Please add this date in your diaries!!

Charlbury C.C. 1st and 2nd teams to apply to join the Cherwell League in 2018

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.

Colin Olliffe – Chairman – Charlbury C.C.

Great start to the season – New record for Charlbury C.C.


Congratulations to Ashley Rump who in the first game of the season against Radley C.C., scored a massive 196 not out, a new record for the Charlbury records listings…. Ashley came in at No 3 and played a superb innings throughout the game and there can be no doubt as to who was ‘Man of the match’….Well done Ashley and to the 1st team for a good win, long may this continue through the 2016 season?

Cricket Force Weekend

Our sincere thanks to all those who gave of their valuable time to attend the Cricket Force work parties last Saturday and Sunday, the 9th & 10th April.

Many, if not all the jobs were completed and the ground and club house is looking great for the start of the 2016 season. Much work has been done around  the ground beforehand and our thanks goes to the ground staff who have worked so hard on the pitches, the outfield and the areas surround the ground.

Our special thanks must go to our President Mike Shayler, who has done so much over recent weeks in preparation for the work party weekend, and for overseeing the programme on Saturday and Sunday.
