U25 & U31 update

Oxfordshire Under 25s men kicked off the season at South Oxford BC on 6th May with a trial game against Wiltshire. This resulted in an overall win for Oxfordshire however the primary objective was for the team to get together on the green and start gelling again following the winter. This was achieved and followed up with a mixed get together and White Rose trial at Kidlington BC on 14th May.

We presently have 34 junior players, male and female, in the county which is good, however that number will reduce by five at the end of the season and by at least two more in 2018. It is therefore imperative that we recruit further players to swell the ranks and build upon the successes of the past few seasons.

As is my annual plea to all clubs, players and interested parties, please do all you can to recruit new bowlers of any age and in particular junior players, passing details to me regardless of age, experience or perceived ability. As I said in my end of season report, if we all introduce one new person to the sport this year we will be in a far healthier position as a county and as a sport!

This is scheduled to be my last season as manager and so I seek support from anyone interested in taking over or at least assisting in the role. Please call or email me for a chat.

Anyway, here’s to a great season for all in Oxfordshire. Look forward to seeing some of you at our junior games and many of you on the circuit.
