Call to arms – Under 9s and 11s cricket needs your help

Cricket this season for the under 9 and 11 groups.

You may be aware that after many years’ service, Paul Butler has decided to stand down as the Under 9 coach. Paul has been a very positive influence on the club, bringing rigor through his position as Welfare officer to ensure we all can play and enjoy cricket in a safe and friendly environment and also spending many hours coaching the more junior players in the club. Paul has always expressed the need for coaching ratios to children to improve and with his children no longer playing cricket and a house move out of Charlbury, he feels that, understandably, this is the right time to move on.

Paul has for a long time, arranged games for the Kwik cricket tournaments and this year was trying to sort out teams for the Under 11s. With Paul leaving, there is a massive gap in what we have previously offered and this season we have been unable to supply anyway near as much opportunity for the 9,10 and 11-year-olds to play in games, as we would like. The youth committee is already stretched but we are putting together an emergency plan led by Paul Quibell Smith, Richard Ede and myself to at least try and ensure the coaching continues on a Friday and we can honour fixtures through the Kwik cricket and Under 11 super 8s program.

From this Friday, Paul Quibell Smith will be running the junior Under 9 group and Martyn Scull will continue to train the Under 11 group. We do however need to introduce a new brand of coaches that are willing to give up their time on match days or on a Friday evening. Therefore, could you please contact either Richard or myself if you are able to at least offer assistance for one session (or more) through games and training. Like you, we work in the week and we need to share this burden – this is a club wide plea to all members and parents!

All Stars Cricket returns to Charlbury!


All Stars Cricket is a fantastic initiative from the England and Wales Cricket Board aimed at providing children aged five to eight with a great first experience in cricket. It is a fun and active way to develop your child’s skills, and through our eight-week programme they will learn lots – as well as make new friends – in a safe and inclusive environment.

Everyone is welcome, and each registered child will receive a pack of cricket goodies including a cricket bat, ball, backpack, water bottle, personalised shirt and cap to keep so that they can continue their love of cricket when they go home. Returning participants will receive a different pack of goodies including an updated shirt and a set of stumps to add to their equipment.

All Stars cricket is once again running at Charlbury Cricket Club, and registration is now open for the programme, which starts in May 2018. We had a great fun last year and would love to continue the success of this programme this year.

If you would like more details please contact us at or visit (where you can register your child)

New Chairman for Charlbury C.C.

As the retiring Chairman of CCC, I wish to advise that Tom Eaton was voted in as the ‘new’ Chairman at the AGM held on Sunday 22nd October, and we wish him every success in this role. I am fully convinced that with Tom’s great style of leadership and his obvious enthusiasm, he is the right person to take the club forward, as we join the Cherwell League in 2018.

Tom is currently organising the ‘new’ Management Committee, who will be tasked in running the ‘day to day’ business of the club, so please give this committee your full support and be prepared to help out in whatever ways are necessary in the coming days – there is a lot to do and as the saying goes “many hands make light work”…

Colin Olliffe – Former Chairman of CCC
