Oxford CC Women had a great start to the season with the inaugural matches of the Home Counties Women’s Cricket League Super 8’s Competition. This is an 8 aside pairs, 16 overs competition where everyone has to bat and everyone is encouraged to bowl. The score starts on 200 and three runs lost for every wicket taken.
In the first game v Thame – Thame made 267 for the loss of 5 wickets. Laura Jacob and Ridhi Kashyap each took 2 wickets. We were a little rusty with the bat – Hanna Jaadla (12) and Chris Jesty (10) top scored but we held our nerve and finished on 272 with the loss of 5 wickets.
Second match v Deddington. We batted first, some of the rust had worn off and we finished on 302 for the loss of 3 wickets. Top scorers were Ridhi Kashyap (27) and Rebecca Lloyd (15) and Laura Jacob held her form and took a further two wickets. Deddington finished on 241 for 6 wickets.
Match 1: Laura Jacobs (capt), Camilla Charles, Katie Harrison, Hanna Jaadla, Chris Jesty, Ridhi Kashyap, Rebecca Lloyd, Rosalyn Porter.
Match 2: Laura Jacobs (capt), Alice Crystal, Katie Harrison, Hanna Jaadla, Ridhi Kashyap, Rebecca Lloyd, Nashwa Shah, Numa Shah.
Many thanks to Chris Harrison for umpiring.
Next Sunday we look forward to hosting the next round when we play Charlbury and Thame at Jordan Hill.
Car parking is by the astroturf pitch – from the Headley Way entrance, drive round to the left, along the front of the school and the astroturf will be directly in front of you.
To get to the sports hall, walk along the side of the astroturf, away from the main school buildings towards the sports complex until you get to the patio outside the swimming pool – take the door on the right, behind the toilets.

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.
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 dinnerhas been arranged forFriday 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.
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.
