Aims For The Year Ahead

Using our new status as a university performance club we aim to further develop our players as athletes and cricketers. Our 1st All 3 outdoor teams are strong contenders for promotion in their respective divisions with our 1st XI especially keen to repeat 2014s title winning performance. The indoor teams are looking to consolidate their positions in the South Yorkshire Indoor League and regain our position as Varsity champions. Our Friendly XI also aims to continue to play in more successful friendlies against other university societies

Club Achievements

Despite a slow start, the 1st XI finished the BUCS season well winning the final 3 games to finish in a strong position in Northern 1a having won the league in 2014. The 3rd XI narrowly missed out on promotion also having a strong year. Once again the indoor team reached the BUCS national semi-finals having been crowned BUCS Indoor Cricket National Champions in 2012/13. In the South Yorkshire indoor league both our 1st and 2nd teams consolidated their positions in divisions 1 and 2 respectively.
