To celebrate the seasons successes and hard work, we will be presenting the youth awards at the presentation ceremony. Here we will be awarding those youngters in each age group who have excelled during the year and worked hard to improve their cricketing skills. So even if you cannot make the morning events, come to the presentations to celebrate a great season of cricket with us.
From 1pm, stay at the club as there is a great chance to watch some top quality cricket as the Oxford Cricket Club 1st XI take on an invited Chairman's XI, and the Ladies 1st XI take on the Lady Taverners.
Again, so we can plan for numbers, please let me know if you would like to come along and take part in any of the matches or the U9s Challenge, and thank you to those who have already been in touch to say they cannot make it.
I hope you all are excited as I am about Chairman's day and I look forward to seeing you all on the Bank Holiday Monday to celebrate a successful season of cricket at Oxford Cricket Club!
