Calling old cricketers! – 13-15th July 2018

An appeal to ex-players of Bloxham Cricket Club – and to patrons of the Elephant & Castle in the Nineties!

If you were playing cricket for Bloxham back in the nineties, you may remember our visiting Australian players?

Nathan and Brett weren’t the first and certainly weren’t the last but they were arguably the most memorable, not always for cricketing reasons!  They were part of a couple of great seasons in the clubs history, including a dramatic victory in the Banbury Advertiser Cup Final.

Nathan Branz is coming back to our shores for the first time in 20+ years and will be staying in the rooms at the Elephant with his wife Kerry, on the weekend of the 13th, 14th and 15th of July.

So, if you can make it down then it’d be great to catch up – we’re planning to make an evening of it on Saturday night primarily, so it’d be great to share some stories and talk about old times.

Who knows, maybe off the back of that – we might even generate some momentum to get cricket played again in the village!
