Chearsley Cricket Club – Aunt Sally
Members of Chearsley Cricket Club have been playing in an Aunt Sally League since May and are currently in second place. They have also reached the Cup Final which takes place on Friday 16th at The Black Bull, Launton. Adam Lazaruk, the captain and his team would very much appreciate your support. The team they are playing in the final is The Shakespeare who play in a division above Chearsley. Well done for getting this far and good luck to the Aunt Sally players.

This season, the Cricket XI Team are on the brink of promotion, and hope to win Division 4 of the Cherwell League. The Seconds are hoping not to be relegated.
