Cumnor Kwiks 2018 League Champions

Cumnor Kwiks 2018 League Champions

Cumnor Kwiks Crowned 2018 League Champions!

Cumnor Kwiks triumphed recently at the Kwik Competition held at Abingdon Vale CC. The final round of Sunday matches culminated in a finals day knock out competition with the top 4 teams in the league playing in a semi-final and then a final to determine this seasons champion team.

Cumnor beat Wootton and Boars Hill by 10 runs in a tight contest and progressed through to the final against local rivals Kingston Bagpuize.

Batting first Cumnor batted well, didn’t lose any wickets and set a challenging total of 253 runs.  Kingston lost 2 wickets in their first over and were always up against it from there on and thanks to some very accurate Cumnor Bowling and some great fielding, won by 15 runs.

This was a fantastic end to a great season and a testament to the strength of Junior Cricket at Cumnor CC. We managed to field over 20 different boys and girls in our team over the course of the 8 weeks and all contributed to the success of Kwiks in 2018. Well done all!

U13 County Champions 2017

U13 County Champions 2017




Our U13 boys were crowned County Champions 2017 of the ECB National Club Championship at Bicester and North Oxford. They beat Horspath in a close fought final. A great team effort.
Well done to all the boys on a great performance.

Dylan Driscoll 2017

Maiden County 50 and now 135 Not Out!

Dylan Driscoll  – County 135 not out!

Dylan Driscoll batted beyond his years as he was left 135 not out as he helped his Boys U10 county side post a staggering 270-5 from their 40 overs against Norfolk. The score on its own is a quite incredible achievement, especially at such a young age but when you hear he scored his runs from 103 balls hitting 17 fours and 3 sixes it is even more impressive.  Well done!

Dylan Driscoll from our U10 year group and member of the Oxfordshire  U10 County team scored his Maiden County 50 against Devon. Congratulations from all at CCC on such a great achievement. Well done and best of luck in future games.


Joe Clapton 2017

Joe Clapton 100 not out.

Oxford Hosps Doctors 195
CUMNOR SAS 198/4. JOE CLAPTON 100 not out  P DU Plessis 52
A fantastic knock and 1st century for Joe CLAPTON was the highlight of an SAS victory yesterday at Park Field
We were asked to bowl by our oppo and with a very young bowling attack, bowled very well ably led by first time skipper Sam Herbert, Sam Down got a wicket with his first delivery, U13 player Noah Hilton – Dew bowled well and and Anabel, Max, Sam H and Krishan were all in the wickets.
Herbert shuffled his batting order and asked Pierre du P and young Clapton to get us started.   What a great call it proved to be as both batsman played majestically sending the ball racing to all parts of the field and in some cases, out of the field..
An opening stand of 148 saw us break the back of the Doctors bowling, Clapton retired after reaching his century.  Nonetheless, a great knock and a sign of things to come…it was left to the middle order to see Sas over  the line which they did with the loss of 4 wkts.
Jamie Curtis 2016

Gloucestershire CCC 2nd XI and OXON debut!

In June 2016 our very own Jamie Curtis made a proud debut for Gloucestershire CCC 2nd XI and took 4 wickets!

Jamie has also made his OXON debut at the age of 15years.

Well done Jamie from all at CCC – we are very proud of you and we look forward to hearing about your future endeavours.
