Captain’s Welcome

Barkat Ahmed, First XI Captain

Wolvercote 1st XI is a well balanced side in all regards. We have an even distribution of the fit and the unfit; fat and thin; fast and slow; home-bred and overseas imports; run scorers and wicket takers; great catchers and well, the not so great! But, most of all, we provide the right balance between the desire to win and ensuring that we play the game in the right spirit.

We have a team that holds sportsmanship, camaraderie and teamwork in high regard and this translates into a friendly environment for us to spend our Saturday afternoons soaking up some sun, winning some cricket matches and indulging in some friendly banter between ourselves and any like-minded opposition.

The culture at Wolvercote has bred success in our league games where we have now been promoted for six of the last eight seasons as well as winning the Telegraph Cup in 2015. We have our goals firmly set on achieving success now that we’re in the Cherwell League!

2021 Fixtures
