It’s around 10 years since Junior cricket returned to The Croft and what a success it has been! Many Coaches have helped along the way, but the one constant over this period, has been Ed Squires, who continues to run the programme with great enthusiasm & commitment. This was rightly recognised last year, when he won the nomination for Oxfordshire’s Lifetime Achiever award and a subsequent trip to Lords for the Nat West OSCAs. Friday night regularly sees a Croft packed with youngsters having a thoroughly enjoyable time. They play in an Oxfordshire Super 8s league and one or two have even made their Sunday “open age” cricket debuts. Girls have been a significant part of our Junior cricket and we have also seen several young ladies graduating to our Ladies squad.
