Oxfordshire Cricket Association 2018
Team Name:

celebrating over 100 years of league cricket

With nearly 100 years of history, the Oxfordshire Cricket Association is dedicated to offering competitive result cricket to member clubs and promoting youth involvement in cricket at a grassroots level, all played in a spirit desirable to local cricket.

The league’s progressive rules and constitution puts it in the perfect position to tackle the modern-day challenges facing cricket and those passionate about playing.

New clubs and teams are actively encouraged to join, whether the club has one side, or only certain teams from within a club want to join.

New sides are always placed at the appropriate level within the league system to ensure a competitive, and enjoyable game for everyone.

The Association’s playing conditions and rules are decided by the clubs, and are governed by a committed, experienced and responsive committee of individuals, all of whom have been involved in local cricket for many years.

The committee provide training courses to improve ground and umpiring standards, to ensure that two neutral umpires officiate every game with the best facilities possible.

Firstly, we are pleased that the following clubs have signed up to attend the dinner on the 9th November...these are:
Chipping Norton - Hook Norton - Kilkenny (Carterton) - Watlington - Westcott - Witney Swifts and Wolvercote....

If some clubs are undecided there is still time to apply for tickets, BUT please do so in the next 7 days.....

Now for the BAD news followed by the GOOD news......For those who have read the profile on Charles Dagnall, our
invited guest speaker, will know that he is under contract with the BBC for Test Match Special and has suddenly been
detailed to work abroad at the time of the dinner, which of course is very BAD NEWS for the OCA.....However, the GOOD
NEWS is that a colleague of Charles - David Fulton who works for Sky Sports is able to take his place and from his
profile (See under Administration) sounds to be a very engaging speaker and has been well received on the after-dinner speaking circuit.

The Executive committee feel very confident that although we have had to make this change, it will still be a very enjoyable
evening for all and numbers have alreday exceeded 100 attendees, so hope that a few more will want to join us?
