Town Council award CCC £1,000

We are delighted to announce that Charlbury Town Council has awarded the cricket club a grant of £1,000 that will be used for the enhancement of the pavilion social area and toilet facilities.

The main committee will be discussing the full proposals on Sunday 19th January but Phase 1 is likely to include additional mood lighting, temporary floor covering (rugs) and painting of the walls in more vibrant colours. Phase 2 will involve a more permanent flooring solution and new furniture.

Ajit Shah, director of cricket said that he was extremely grateful to the support of the Town Council and this award will enhance the clubs social area and be a welcome improvement to a well loved community facility in Charlbury, that continues to be open to all Charlbury residents.

Youth Winter Coaching (Years 5-9)

As we approach the new year, it gets every closer to the cricket season….

This year we have the exciting news that we are now running 4 XIs on a Saturday and specific places are reserved in the 3rd and 4th XIs for those current Year 8 and above that want to play the longer format of the game. We also acknowledge that we didn’t get enough cricket games for our more junior members, something we are working hard to address. More details to follow regarding summer training and games but for now…

We have again booked a series of sessions at Charlbury Community Centre that is now regarded as one of the very best centres for indoor cricket training across Oxfordshire. There is little doubt that those that attended last years sessions achieved real progress. The following sessions are currently planned :-

(18/1, 25/1, 1/2, 8/2, 15/2, 1/3, 8/3,22/3)

Years 8,9

We will be running an 8 week academy style program and places for each group are limited to 16 in each group. The cost is £40 per programme.

For year groups at Year 9 and above , all players will be invited to the 3rd and 4th Xi nets on Sundays that will run through February. A separate email will be sent. For year 8 players, I will discuss individually the options for this year group to play in these games/ training sessions.
