The final countdown......

Congratulations to all our senior cricketers.

With a comprehensive victory over Leighton Buzzard last Saturday, Chearsley Cricket Club 1st X1 have put themselves in a strong position to win the Cherwell League Division 4 championship.

We currently sit eighteen points ahead of nearest rivals (Shipton) with one game to play, needing just eight points to secure top position and promotion to Division 3 next season.

Their final league fixture takes place away next Saturday afternoon 3rd September) at Buckingham – 1 o’clock start.

Bourton Rd

I know the lads would appreciate our support, and directions to the venue are available here.......

A number of CCC Vice Presidents will be travelling up to Buckingham during the afternoon, leaving The Bell at around 2.30, at the conclusion of their VP luncheon. If sufficient numbers are interested, we’ll sort out a minibus. If you are interested, email or call me on 07970 651326.

I think all the players would agree that the 2nd XI season has been a bit of a ‘curate’s egg’. The lads are currently placed 7th in Division 7 but, happily, well clear of the ‘drop zone’. So, all in all, a decent show in their first season in a higher division – but room for improvement next year.

Their final league fixture also takes place next Saturday at home against Kingston Bagpuize.

So, fingers crossed for next Saturday.....
