Fourth Team

The Fourth XI play in the Cherwell Cricket League Division 9, having fought off the threat of relegation last year. They play their home games at Lord Williams’ Upper School. Ed Mather and Tim Dabbs share the fourth XI captaincy. The team has been placed in Tier 6 for the makeshift season post-COVID.

The Fourth XI is used as an introduction to Men’s cricket for members of the youth system on occasions, putting them alongside some of the more seasoned campaigners, while also giving players with less availability the opportunity to chance their arm throughout the long season.

Due to COVID-19, a large part of the season was lost, with a new schedule created and social distancing rules invented upon the return of cricket. There will be no relegation or promotion.
