OVSC’s Maori-Oxshott cricket colts at Kia Oval

Members of OVSC’s Maori-Oxshott cricket colts swapped Steels Lane for the Kia Oval on the first day of the last Investec Test Match against the Aussies.  Not only did the boys (and girl!) demonstrate their cricket skills at the famous venue during the lunch interval, but they were also lucky enough to be chosen to provide the Guard of Honour as the 2 teams took to the field at the start of play.

They represented the Club beautifully and did a wonderful job.  Well done!

Oxshott Cricket Colts Tour July 2014

There were 32 in the party that negotiated the Channel Tunnel, passed through France and Belgium and reached Holland for the Maori Oxshott Cricket Colts Tour. The weather was awful throughout the trip but the Dutch have astro wickets and boys have never been too fussed by incessant rain. The parents remained nicely dry, watching from the Pavilion, so it was our Australian coaches who were left wet through.
Our hosts offered wonderful hospitality but we left with an unbeaten record after two closely fought matches (the third was lost to rain but replaced with an impromptu 7 a side mixed tournament). Eddy Syrett claimed the man of the match award in the first match and the overall batsmen of the tour. Alfie Parker was bowler of the tour, whilst Chris Shaw won the second man of the match honour and the glory of ‘Star of the Tour’.
