Starting from the 2021 season Wolvercote Cricket Club are pleased to announce the formation of our 4th XI. The ‘fours’ will start in division 8C of the Cherwell Cricket League and be captained by the inimitable David Quinn.
The introduction of a 4th XI comes after the successful introduction of our 3rd XI in 2017, and the continued growth of the club over recent seasons. It will allow us to provide even more cricket for our membership, especially at a time when more people want to get outside and get active (in a COVID safe way!). If you’re interested in joining us for this season have a look at our membership page.
2021 marks the inaugural season for Wolvercote CC 4th XI. It is a remarkable indication of how far we have come in such a short space of time having only established a 2nd XI in 2008! Nick Pinhol set up the Youth programme less than a decade ago and now we find ourselves fielding a team dedicated to providing a platform for our young cricketers in a formal adult league setting.
I am honoured to have been asked to skipper this side in its first year and pleased to have Phil Lohan alongside me as Vice-Captain. We are looking to enlist a few other experienced hands whose primary focus will be to lend advice and knowledge to our fledgling teammates. If you think you can be of assistance, sign up and let us know of your intentions.
