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.
A poor batting performance left the Villagers too much to do in the field, and saw us succumb to our first loss of the season at Islip.
IVCC 117-9 off 28 overs (Berry 40, Smith 31).
Islip 118-4 off 22 (1 wicket a apiece for Troth, Tyler, Meier and Berry).
Convincing victory by 96 runs at Long Compton for the season opener. Strong batting performances from Mark Law (78) and Cable-Alexander (93) was backed up with strong bowling performance from all bowlers (Ross, Tyler, Matt Law, Smith, and Meier).Posted 8th May 2017 by Ali Meier
