Westcott CC Midweek XI Fixtures & Results 2022

  Westcott CC Midweek XI – Buckingham Midweek League

Westcott Cricket Club are pleased to announce that they will be playing in the Buckingham Midweek Cricket League this forthcoming season. Fixtures are now confirmed, with games being played on a Wednesday evening, between the months of May and July. This is a great opportunity to play some friendly, enjoyable and sociable cricket against neighbouring clubs, at a level that is right for both teams.

Matches are to commence by 6.30pm and are made up of 15 x 6 ball overs per innings, which can be reduced to 12 x 6 overs if starting late or due to inclement weather.

The league will be made up of 11 teams, with 10 x weekly fixtures running from Wednesday 4th May through to July. This will be followed by 3 x cup finals, as shown below:

Buckingham Advertiser Cup – League winners v League Runners Up – to be held at Buckingham Town CC

League Shield Winners – Westbury CC

George Blow Cup – Maids Moreton CC

Wides ~ Any delivery passing down the leg side wide is automatically 2 runs to the batting side, but no extra ball shall be bowled, except for in the final over, when the rule reverts back to normal rules, ie a wide delivery = 1 run plus an extra delivery to be bowled. An off side wide will be guide lined by an additional crease marking, as we currently have in Cherwell League cricket and will be at the umpires discretion.

No balls ~ These are simply a no ball = 1 run plus an extra delivery to be bowled (no free hit)

Fielding restrictions – there are no restrictions other than the normal laws of cricket.

Nick Raynor (Tiz) will once again manage and captain the midweek team, so if you are keen to play some cricket on those lovely summer evenings and enjoy a sociable drink afterwards, please let Tiz know on the Whatsapp group so he can add you to the squad. Any new players wishing to get involved, please head to the “information” tab at the top of the page and get in touch with any committee member. New players are always welcome 🙂
