There was once a dream that was IVCC. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish... it was so fragile. And we feared that it will not survive the 2013 winter. But survive it did, and so the gentlemen players got together in a backstreet boozer in OX4 and established Iffley Village Cricket Club in 2014. With the ethos behind the club being to play friendly 40-over and 20-over cricket matches against like-minded clubs around the country, our focus is as much on playing competitive cricket as it is enjoying a beer with the opposition after the game, and with the journey being far more important than the result.
8 Villagers and a more than useful loanee from the oppo overcame Horley with another last over nailbiter. With a few early wickets, the batting was consolidated by Ross and Meier, then backed up with excellent bowling, most notably from Alex 'Darren' Trough. Full credit to Horley for being the nicest opponents.Posted 17th Aug 2021 by Ali Meier
A thrilling victory for the Villagers was secured in the final over in an enthralling game against Charlie Ross's VPs XI at Hales Meadows. Excellent bowling from Troth in particular helped secure the win.Posted 12th Aug 2021 by Ali Meier
Wonderful knocks from Cable-Alexander (49) and Ross (49), and a decent bowling performance from the Trinders, Berry and co., saw the Villagers open 2021 with a smashing win vs Islip.Posted 7th May 2021 by Ali Meier
