Notices

Notice from the Media Secretary - Clubs NOT reporting results in time!!

It is very disappointing that two clubs (Marsh Gibbon & Hanney) failed to add their results to the website within the given deadline of Noon on the following day of the game. This means that they will get no mention in the paper (maybe that doesn't worry them?) and they are liable to receive fines if this continues.
There should be NO excuse for not being able to report results well before the deadline, so please make the Media Secretary's job easier by following the rules.

Great Horwood C.C. - Hon. Secretary for 2016

Simon Gale is the main contact/secretary for Great Horwood C.C.
His email address is: followtheboff@gmail.com....Home: 01908 760199 and mobile: 07977 014 496

Errors and wrong email addresses in the 2016 handbook

Under umpires listing: Kevin Giles details have NOT been included, so please Add Kevin Giles: Mobile No: 07774 206 854 and club contacts should advise the club captains of this.

Also, it is very disappointing that despite every effort to ensure we have correct email addresses/mobile numbers, there are a good number of incorrect listings, so can you please CHECK YOUR OWN club details/captains numbers and email address and adjust the website accordingly.

Unless this is done, there will be problems for clubs who cannot contact the' right person at a crucial time', so please attend to this as a priority.

Many thanks

Player Registration Deadline (Match Rule 8b)

The 2016 season starts for the majority of clubs on 30 April. In accordance with Match Rule 8b the player registration deadline for the majority of clubs is therefore 12:00 hours on 29 April 2016. The same deadline applies for nomination of 1st XI and 2nd XI players under Match Rule 14a. There are a few clubs where a different deadline applies. I will be contacting these clubs directly to confirm the relevant deadline. If any club is unsure of their deadline please contact me.

Peter Whitlock
OCA Registration Secretary

Regarding Chesterton C.C.

We regret to advise the membership that Chesterton CC have felt it necessary to withdraw their 1st team from the OCA, which means that Division 3 will go into the new season with 9 clubs participating.
It is far too late to make any changes to the fixture list, so teams in Division 3 should consider arranging friendly fixtures to cover the two games lost.

Cricket Nets at Heyford Park Free School?

Are you looking to hire nets for winter sessions? If so, read on....

My name is Jez Hobbs and I'm a PE teacher at Heyford Park Free School, Upper Heyford, Bicester.
We've recently installed 2 brand new cricket nets in our brand new sports hall and wondered if you're able to help 'advertise' them to cricket clubs in your leagues. By this I mean they are available to hire at very competitive rates and come with brand new net batting tracks and we'd love to see them being used.
Do pass this and my email address on to any one you might think is interested and many thanks for your help.
Best wishes

Gift for Nick Treweeke.

The Executive Committee are extremely grateful for the many years of committed service that Nick Treweeke has given to the Association, and will be presenting him with a gift in due course.
We wish to give all the member clubs the opportunity to give a donation towards this gift, and this should be sent to the OCA Treasurer, clearly marked ' Gift Donation for Nick Treweeke'.
If paying direct into the OCA account, please ensure that this carries a note as above.
The 'gift fund' will be open for donations until the end of February 2016.
Many thanks

Are you a Marketing Man - if so, the OCA needs you?

The OCA Executive wish to involve the services of a Marketing Manager, as we seem to be missing out on opportunities to raise funds for the association. There is currently no-one on the Executive Committee with marketing experience, so if YOU feel this is for 'you', please contact the Chairman or the General Secretary for further information.
Thank you.

Is your CRB still current for the 2016 season?

If you hold a CRB certificate and will be involved in OCA cricket during 2016, can you please check that your certificate is still in date (not sure if they advise you to re-new?) as they normally run for three (3) years.
Should you need to re-new your CRB, please contact Ian Royle who will be pleased to check your form and sign it off.
Ian's contact No: 01235.847528 or royle.ian@talk21.com

Covers and Sight Screens notification to all member clubs

This is a notice to advise all clubs that they are expected to provide pitch covers (flat sheets or roll-on) as from the beginning of the 2016 season, and checks by the Facilities Secretary will be made to ensure that these are available.
With regards to Sight Screens, this is a forward notice to advise ALL CLUBS that as from 2017, sight screens MUST be provided, so if your club is still without these, plans should be put in place during this coming season.
