celebrating over 100 years of league cricket

With over 100 years of history, the Oxfordshire Cricket Association is dedicated to offering competitive result cricket to member clubs and promoting youth involvement in cricket at a grassroots level, all played in a spirit desirable to local cricket.

The league’s progressive rules and constitution puts it in the perfect position to tackle the modern-day challenges facing cricket and those passionate about playing.

New clubs and teams are actively encouraged to join, whether the club has one side, or only certain teams from within a club want to join.

New sides are always placed at the appropriate level within the league system to ensure a competitive, and enjoyable game for everyone.

The Association’s playing conditions and rules are decided by the clubs, and are governed by a committed, experienced and responsive committee of individuals, all of whom have been involved in local cricket for many years.

The committee provide training courses to improve ground and umpiring standards, to ensure that two neutral umpires officiate every game with the best facilities possible.

Information on obtaining new or re-newing DBS certificates

A number of OCA umpires need to apply for DBS certificates and some will be about to expire, so the following notes may be of assistance?
The important thing is that ALL UMPIRES must hold a current DBS....

1. Ian Royle can initiate the process for anyone who needs a DBS, either new or renewing, and would need name as on passport/driving licence, date of birth and email address.

2. Any club welfare officer should also be able to do this or the welfare team at OCB

3. Anybody who obtained their DBS through the ECB will get a reminder.

4. The 3 year time scale is decided by the ECB as the governing body but the DBS certificate itself only has an issue date not a "sell by" date. This is the same for any organisation to decide how long they want to leave it before a new certificate is required as technically the certificate is only valid on the day of issue when the checks have been completed as you could get a conviction the day after your certificate is issued!

5. OCB Welfare team can check if somebody has a certificate as they get a full list of those issued through ECB for the county.
