1st XI Captain

As some of you are aware after a fantastic spell as 1st XI skipper; Josh Hornsby has decided it is time to step down. Josh has overseen a great time for CCC 1st XI with the undoubted highlight being 2017 when we won OCA Division One. Over the year’s, Josh has put so much effort into the club, especially our 1st XI and the superb results were plain for all to see. Not only has our leading side been competitive and victorious under Josh, it has also been a great place to play for all those involved. On behalf of the club, I would like to thank Josh for all his efforts and wish him all the very best as a player for CCC this coming season. I’m sure they’ll be a second coming at some point.

As always though we have to look ahead and it is with great pleasure that I can announce that CCC’s new 1st XI captain is Tom Nash. Like Josh, Tom has been at CCC from youth level, Sunday Cricket, 3rd team, 2nd team (including captain) and has been a key member of our 1st XI at the top of the innings for three years now. No doubt, Tom has big boots to fill, but I’m sure you’ll all agree with me when I say that we all have every confidence in Tom to steer the ship, put his own unique mark on the side and continue to see great success on and off the pitch.

Tom – from all at CCC, we are 100% behind you and delighted with your decision to step up, all the very best.

Tom

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…

Winter Nets

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 :-

Years 5,6 & 7
Friday 4pm-5pm
(18/1, 25/1, 1/2, 8/2, 15/2, 1/3, 8/3,22/3)

Years 8,9
Friday 5pm-6pm
(18/1, 25/1, 1/2, 8/2, 15/2, 1/3, 8/3,22/3)

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.

We appreciate that the timings can create challenges so please can you complete the attached link just to confirm an expression of interest. You will then be contacted further if you wish to proceed to book a place. Places are allocated on a first come/ first serve basis.
