United In Cricket

The club gave a warm welcome on Wednesday afternoon to a group of 12 teenagers who joined some of our own boys and girls in a joyful celebration of cricket. The event was organised in association with Charlbury Refugee Action Group (CRAG) who give support to young asylum refugees from countries like Afghanisatn, Syria, Eritrea, Sudan and Botswana. They are based in Oxford and came to Charlbury by train with CRAG support worker Helena Cullen. With a warm-up game of football the teenagers got know each other and then split off into groups to practise batting, bowling and fielding drills with trained coaches. Then after a traditional pavilion tea, they rounded off the afternoon with a game of continuous cricket with plenty of big hitting and splendid catching skills. We are grateful to CRAG for asking us to host the event – and liven up a school holiday afternoon with children from many nationalities getting to know each other through sport. Our thanks also to Charlbury coaches Mike Geeson-Brown and Paul Quibell-Smith, and Oxfordshire Cricket Board’s Shaz Khan.

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.

Nottingham Tour 2016

On Friday 22nd April – Sunday 24th April; 22 CCC tourists embarked on what is now an annual pre season tour. This year the destination was Nottingham where we stayed in the centre of town for two nights. We were looked after superbly well by our hosts Ellerslie CC on the Saturday and Rolleston CC on the Sunday. Sadly, as is often the way on tour; both games resulted in losses for CCC, but Saturday’s game in particular was a very tight affair, Ellerslie just edging it by one run. A special mention must go to our bus driver Alan who had a bat for us on Sunday when wickets were beginning to tumble ‘he bats when he wants’.

To give you a flavour of the rest of the weekend, it included; The letter ‘N’, D Rives, Ace of Base (always), A wedding booking, A Cocktail Sausage, Wibbly Wobbly, Half a yard, Getting off the pitch, An early check out and a Jager breakfast to mention a few….

A MASSIVE congratulations to our first team skipper Mr Josh Hornsby who won the most sort after award of ‘Tourist of the Year’ joining Ben Geeson Brown, Oliver Hollings and Craig Moss as previous winners. Dean Warner Carter must have a mention as runner up (1st looser).

Another hugely enjoyable weekend; a big thank you to all on the Tour Committee for their efforts.

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…….

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.
