The return of Dorchester (H) – Cherwell League Div 6C

With this hotly anticipated return fixture looming, there were quiet murmurings about how many points we needed, and was it even possible for a 26-0 points swing. Equally, the rumours that Dorch were without some of their players only heightened the excitement.   In the background of all of this, Harvester: silver fox, The Tron, Harvey and Mabbs: Moobalicious, Green Giant, Mabbett were both tied on wickets for the bowling award.

5th September 2020 Having already lost against Marcham and Dorch, and the unfortunate washout at Sunningwell, we made the short trip to Steventon knowing it was our last competitive cricket of 2020. With 15 players available, one of the best weeks for availability all year, it was a strong team looking to finish the season on a high.

Youth Cricket Friday 28 August

We will be opening the clubhouse this evening at about 1730 to allow the kids to enjoy a game of cricket. The only problem is likely to be the weather.

Clearly if it is raining we will not be able to play cricket and with the current regulations, we have to limit numbers in the clubhouse in order to maintain social distancing. We will be opening the clubhouse this evening at about 1730 and to allow…continue reading →
