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.
Summer arrived on Thursday as a glorious evening at Jesus College saw a fighting IVCC lose to a much improved Wiley Blackwell side. Batting first IVCC made 102 from its 20 overs. However, a strong opening partnership for Wiley Blackwell set the base for a 5 wicket victory in the 18th over. Full match report to follow.Posted 7th Jun 2015 by Bill Smith
Last night saw IVCC chalk up its first win of the season against Wiley Blackwell. The tone was set with a strong batting display with Olly Ross top scoring with 36. However, MoM went to Dan Bibb whose flight and guile took him to IVCC career best bowling figures of 4 for 10 from 4 overs.Posted 28th May 2015 by Bill Smith
