Another busy week for Bloxham Cricket started with a tough away fixture to Abingdon for the Junior sides, with 4 losses and a lot of lessons learnt from that experience. However, the 1st XI entertained the Pot Belly Farmers, in a spirted T/20 game, of which the hosts won by 8 wickets. Luke Nardone again was in fine form with the bat, hitting big on his way to 611runs. This was the first time the Pot Belly Farmers had played on Bloxham soil, long may it continue.

The girls 1st XI also managed to get a game with MCS on Thursday evening, playing extremely well both in the field and batting they won the game by 10 wickets.

Cup Final glory awaits the Junior Colts A, who dispatched Burford School by 10 wickets in the Semi Final. Kavan Wagstaff the pick of the bowlers while Jack Beever and Fin Smart scored all of Bloxham’s runs. Thursday also proved to be a very successful day for the Exham House A and B teams, with two wins against Rendcomb. Toby Staveley Parker’s 93* off 57 balls was the foundation of a strong total for the Exham boys.

On the Friday it was Spratton Halls turn to face the mighty Exham team, who hadn’t experienced a loss this cricket season. Some wayward bowling towards the end of the Spratton innings meant they set Bloxham 159 off 25 overs to win. Sadly Bloxham’s run chase fell 40 runs short, although Henry Simmonds made a resilient 42 runs, his best performance with the bat this season for Bloxham.

Saturday’s block fixture against Pangbourne proved to be the most successful Saturday of the term; with 5 wins and one draw coming from the fixture. The Junior Colts B team came away with a remarkable 3 run victory; looking to defend their 77 all out total Toby Steele entered the fray, and with some excellent swing bowling, secured a five-fer, with 5-7 off 4 overs, including 2 maidens. With 12 required off the last 2 overs. Henry Meager stepped up and bowled a maiden to make it 12 off the last over. Tom Stimpson did the job and the JCBs won by 3 runs!
