We’re a club that’s heading in the right direction.
Since 2016 our 1st XI has won three promotions and now sit proudly in the top Division of the Cherwell League, and our 2nd XI won the former Division 7 at a canter in 2019, consolidating that success with a strong 4th place in Division 5B of the new league structure.
Our 3rd XI is going from strength to strength thanks to the emergence of a clutch of county and district age-group players, and as a sign of our continued progression we entered a 4th league XI in 2021 for the first time in a decade.
With our four League sides spread throughout the newly amalgamated Cherwell League structure, we can rightly claim to provide opportunities for players of all abilities.
But we’re not finished yet – and we can’t wait to find out how far we can go.

Youth Cricket at B&NOCC
Bicester and North Oxford Cricket club boasts a thriving junior section for ages 5 and up.
Our weekly junior Winter practice sessions will start in February. Further details will follow.
When the clocks go forward in Spring, junior training moves outside to our ground in Chesterton.
During the School Summer term, we run the increasingly popular All-Stars, which gives children aged 5-8 a fun-filled introduction to the game.
These successes haven’t happened by accident. They’ve come about because we’ve got a group of players who enjoy practicing and playing together, and celebrating one another’s successes.
Any club worth its salt can offer you the chance to play at a standard suitable for you, but we like to think we go above and beyond that by giving you the chance to improve, progress, and do things you didn’t think you could.
We’re incredibly lucky to have two top quality coaches at the club in the form of ex-B&NOCC players Gary ‘Sam’ Sansome and Paul ‘Mutter’ Jeacock, both of whom played for the Club in our Home Counties Premier League days. They work closely with a number of Level 2 qualified coaches to carefully plan and deliver our weekly training sessions.
Gary is one of just a handful of ECB Level 3 qualified coaches in the County, and Mutter has taken more Cherwell and Home Counties Premier League wickets than he’s had haircuts.
Off the pitch we’ve got a busy social calendar including organised events like Race Nights, quizzes and casino nights, as well as regular, impromptu nights out after games on Saturdays – win or lose, everyone invited.
Our 2022 Winter nets take place weekly beginning on Monday 7th February and this year we’ll be using the brand new facilities at Whitelands Academy. Then, once the clocks go forward in Spring, training will move to our Akeman Street ground in Chesterton every Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm.
