OE Cricket Club
A relaxed, friendly atmosphere coupled with a fierce competitive edge is the style of the OE Cricket Club. A series of lively fixtures is organised against good club sides during the season by the Society. The Club also plays the 1st XI at the College during the Summer Term. Members are guaranteed a number of matches played on beautifully kept grounds, followed by a pleasant after-match social get-together.
The notable addition to the 2014 fixture was our very first Cricketer Trophy fixture against Reeds Old Boys on June 22nd. This was a major coup for us in our quest to play in the prestigious Cricketer Cup in years to come. The Cricketer Trophy is the sister competition to the Cricketer Cup and has been set up to allow those schools not currently in the Cup to play a high standard of cricket, with the potential for entry into the premier competition in the future. The Trophy is extremely competitive with sides such as Millfield, Westminster and Lancing taking part. For more information on the Cup and the Trophy, please go to www.thecricketercup.org.uk.
All OEs, male or female, of any age or playing ability, are welcome to join the Club and develop this unique opportunity to extend their game whilst enjoying pleasant surroundings and agreeable company. We were delighted that England player, Natalie Sciver (Rv 2006-11), a 2018 Wisden Cricketer of the Year, was able to play for the OECC on Founder's day in 2014, in between tours.
