Training Friday 23rd June

Normal training will go ahead for the tots, all stars and all junior age groups up to and including the Under 11 section as normal. However, as the beer festival will be setting up in the main field it is not possible to use this field and therefore there will be NO training for the Under 13,15 and 17 age groups tonight.

The bar will be open and all are welcome. If any Under 13 or 15s want to help coach the younger groups this can be accommodated.

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.

Beer festival support new roller at CCC

We are delighted to confirm that Charlbury Beer Festival have again supported the club by granting £2,500 towards the cost a new roller. This is in addition to the kind donations from Ajit Shah of £1,000, the OCA of £500 and Charlbury Town Council of £500. A further grant application to WODC  is in progress.

The total cost of the roller is £15,138 but it is hoped that this will facilitate top quality wickets at Charlbury for many years to come. The club plans to apply to the ECB for an interest free loan to fund the shortfall.

The Good news is that the ‘new’ roller will be delivered during the month of May 2016…….
