2nds Win Division 4!
Tues 8th Sept


The first XI finished off a successful season which saw them finish 2nd in Division 1 of the Cherwell league with a 7 wicket win away to Tiddington. Fielding first, Brickhills bowlers were able to restrict scoring to good effect before wickets began to fall at regular periods as George Humphries (3-53) & Lawrence Armstrong (3-22) made light work of the top order. A late partnership allowed Tiddington to reach 150-9 off 53 overs. In reply, Mark Nelson was in fine form, hitting 79 and was well supported by Doug Aris (48*) who saw the side home to a 7 wicket victory.

The big congratulations to the second XI (pictured above) as they secured the division 4 title at home against second placed Tiddington IIs. Asked to bat first, open Marcus Critchley (52) made his maiden half century before Nick Cadman scored a sublime 132, supported by Arran Aris (40) as Brickhill posted a sizeable 331-9 off 53 overs. Despite the Tiddington top order batting aggressively and getting off to a good start, wickets soon began to fall as Julian Blackwell (4-59) and Hamid Miah (4-31 - finishing with 38 wickets for the season) were the pick of the bowlers as Tiddington were all out for 181.

1sts Win & 2nds Promoted!
Tues 1st Sept


The first XI bounced back from their disappointing loss to Thame with a comfortable 7 wicket win at home to Twyford. Bowling first, Openers Ahad Khan & Arjun Jhala each took 2 early wickets before George Humphries (4-49) and Iqbal John (2-21) continued the good early work as Twyford struggled to 120 all out inside 30 overs. In reply, Nick Cadman (34) & Doug Aris (33*) saw Brickhill home comfortably for the loss of 3 wickets inside 20 overs.

The second XI secured promotion to division 3 with a thrilling 3 run win away to Brackley. Asked to bat, Brickhill's batmsen struggled on a damp wicket but young opener Marcus Critchley batted with great patience to top score with 42 but with Brickhill 88-8, Julian Blackwell batted superbly for a vital 28 not out to see Brickhill to 139-9 off 53 overs. In reply, Blackwell bowled with excellent control to take 2-25 off 15 overs allowing young spinner Hamid Miah to collect 4 wickets but with a late partnership threatening, Harry Kearns took 2 vital wickets to seal victory with 4 runs needed.

The third XI lost by 8 wickets away to Winslow Town. Brickhill fell to 85 all out and were only able to take 2 Winslow wickets in the second innings which leaves them 4th in the table at the end of the season.


The Beds Sunday First XI were crowned champions of Division 2 for their 3rd consecutive promition after the game was abandoned due to weather conditions. Well done to skipper Gary Phillips and all the Sunday players and supporters.

The Beds Sunday Second XI were away to Eversholt and lost by 103 runs chasing 188.

Winning the toss and fielding first, Brickhill managed to restrict Thame to 227-9 off 53 overs with spinners Iqbal John (3-57) and Ahad Khan (3-64) the pick of the bowlers. In reply Brickhill lost both openers early before Archie Hammond (24) and Doug Aris (35) looked to rebuild but regular wickets continued to fall as Brickhill could only manage to reach 168 all out.

The second XI remained top of division 4 with a 6 wicket win at home to Witney Mills. Fielding first on a very good batting pitch, Witney Mills's Dan Swindells (135) made the most of the conditions as they posted 268-7 off 53 overs. Hamid Miah (3-78) bowled an excellent long spell in the conditions to help contain one end. In reply, openers Marcus Critchley (44) and Adam Boad (56) put on 87 for the first wicket before Jilesh Pattni (75) & Greg MacDonald (76*) were able to maintain momentum to help chase the total down inside 44 overs for the loss of only 4 wickets.

The third XI's promotion hopes were ended after a disappointing defeat at home to league leaders Elstow. Wickets were difficult to come by as Elstow managed to make 194-4 off 44 overs, James Wagg taking 2-41. In reply, Matthew Ward top scored with 25 as Brickhill were all out for 116.
