By Ken Mannering, Club Chairman

Welcome to 
Cumnor Cricket Club

Cumnor Cricket Club is home to the Cumnor Bears senior and junior squads, a thriving All Stars and youth coaching programme and the popular holiday Academy weeks for 6-13’s.

Our club competes at the highest level within the Cherwell League with three senior teams playing in divisions 1-9, fields a midweek T20 side and hosts a series of Sunday afternoon friendlies.

Our thriving young players programme caters for all age groups from All Stars (5-8yrs) and Kwiks (8-9yrs) and upwards (10-17yrs), offering the opportunity to learn and play lots of cricket. Our junior teams enjoy repeated success and our most talented youngsters go on to the Oxfordshire Youth Player Pathway and represent their county.

UntitledWe are well organised, have good facilities and grounds and maintain our ECB Clubmark status.

If you and your family want to get fit – play cricket at any level or simply enjoy our clubhouse and grounds, Cumnor is sure to give you a big welcome.

Message from Joe Dale, Club Captain

Cumnor Bears

Dear All,

It’s with huge excitement I message you in advance of the 2019 season to inform you of some major developments at Cumnor this winter.

The first of these is the evolution of Cumnor Cricket Club to become the Cumnor Bears. In an age where staying relevant is the only solution to retaining our status as a flagship club in Oxfordshire, the rebrand to the Cumnor Bears recognises the significance of our history and prepares us for an exciting future in a shifting landscape of community sport. Our values as a club centre around family, passion and ambition which we feel are embodied in the Cumnor Bears.

To accompany this, we’re thrilled to announce the access to our new kit range that is now available at our online club shop (Please access via the ‘ Shop’ page on our website). Our new brand features significantly across a range of playing and training apparel, as well as a range of leisure wear and memorabilia that will be available to players and supporters alike. Please order quickly both to take advantage of a subsidy on the club shirt, and to make sure you have the kit in time for the start of the season (there is a 2-3 week lead-time). Our suppliers will also be at the 1st junior training session on 24th April.

The final announcement is to formally introduce our new sponsorship partner and first ever sponsor of the Cumnor Bears, Amber Financial Planning. Amber are an Oxfordshire based company from Long Hanborough who will be our shirt sponsor for the next three years. We are really excited that this is not purely a transactional exchange but a relationship that sees huge benefits for both organisations over the coming years and we are thrilled to have Amber on board.

At this point I’d like to specially thank Ken Mannering, Sam Herbert and Andrew Hodder-Williams for their unending efforts to get us to this point.

Three years ago a lifelong cricket volunteer (called Hassell Bryce-Burcher) was asked on his views about the shift away from the long established traditions of cricket in the club environment. Contrary to the expected gloomy response, the gentleman lit up and said: ‘the best way to respect the game’s history is to ensure the game is relevant in the future.’

Here’s to a great future for the Cumnor Bears! #YouBears.

Yours in cricket,


We have a thriving young players program for all age groups from All Stars and Kwik cricket upwards, offering the opportunity to learn and play lots of cricket

Go well Simon! #YouBears🐻 https://t.co/HhMH473jyo
