The Oxford CC Committee hereby attach the documentation for the 2019 Annual General Meeting, which will take place on Sunday 27th January at Jordan Hill Sports Ground, starting at 7 pm.
Once again the committee would like to emphasise that the club requires more help from its membership to allow it to function. Of principal significance is the loss of the club secretary; this role has been split into a number of smaller roles and we wish to have a number of people to make it both more manageable and more sustainable going forward.
It’s been a fantastic season for Oxford CC Women, with the 1s finishing as undefeated WMCL Premier East Champions.
Big thanks to Emilia for continuing with what Ellie B had been building, and guiding the team to such a resounding victory (already written up on the Oxfordshire Cricket Board website).
The 1s‘ undefeated league season showed our strength in depth, and was a reflection of all the hard work put in by players and coaches during this season and over the past decade. Thank you Tom, Aaron and Paul for all your hard work, expertise and commitment to us on Tuesday evenings. In total, 25 players played in in the 1s this season and 26 in the 2s.
The 2s had a good start to the season, before weather, availability and another team withdrawing saw momentum falter. We finished 4th in our WMCL Super 8s group – this pairs format of the game, playing two matches at a venue was great fun. After a break in June, we played in WMCL Div 2 East B, finishing a distant second to deserving winners Stony Stratford.
To celebrate a great year, the club dinner has been arranged for Friday 19th October and will take place at Jordan Hill Sports Ground. Tickets are £25 per person and can be purchased via ClubPay. Please join us to celebrate the season and recognise some excellent achievements both on and off the field.

Friday July 6th 2018
Oxford CC Women v MCC Women
Play starts at 11am and finishes at 6pm (when Youth training starts). The Kia Super League Vipers Roadshow will be in attendance.
Guests, Friends and Family are most welcome to join us and take part in a special day for the club. We wish to encourage as many people to come along and support the club as possible.

Oxford CC Women’s 1st XI vice-captain, Genny Porter, sporting her well-worn and much-loved Oxford CC cap, played on the main ground at Lord’s on Tuesday 24th April for the MCC Marylebone Maidens, in the Lord’s MCC Women’s Day. The day was a celebration and showcase of Women’s cricket, held at Lord’s in front of about 5,000 school children. In the opposing team was her sister, Eloise. Fortunately, the game aligned with Genny coming out to bat to face her sister’s bowling, however she couldn’t hit the runs required to help her team set a defendable score. Genny and Eloise played all of their youth cricket at Oxford CC, for both the boys and girls teams from the U10s to adult level.
Oxford CC Women are looking forward to their inaugural game hosting the MCC Women at Jordan Hill on Friday July 6th.
