CRICKET: Tew are champions

CHERWELL LEAGUE

DIVISION 1

 GREAT & Little Tew became Cherwell League champions for the first time when they beat Banbury 2nd by 58 runs, writes GRAHAM SCOTT.

Oxfordshire cricketing legend Keith Arnold was the last Banbury batsman to fall, bowled by spinner Ian Bryan with 15 balls remaining.

Tew will now take their place in the Home Counties Premier League’s Division 2 West next summer.

Their final match of the season started in bizarre fashion, with visiting opening bowler Adam Wirth sending down only one delivery before having to be withdrawn from the attack.

Olly Murrey completed the first over and, with Arnold, reduced Tew to 19-2 in the 11th over.

A 103-run partnership in 24 overs between Ashley Hubbert (68) and Curtly Slatter (48) turned the tables in Tew’s favour, before left-arm spinner Steve Hart put Banbury back in the ascendancy by taking 5-68.

Banbury’s problem after tea was their inability to build a meaningful partnership.

Wirth was fit to open the batting, but his 31 took almost two hours as he lost one partner after another.

He ended up being one of Ian Bryan’s five victims, as Tew closed out the win.

Results elsewhere mean the Cherwell League will welcome back Shipton-under-Wychwood and Thame Town next year, as both were relegated from the tier above.

Gt & Little Tew 25pts, Banbury 2nd 6

What a great season. Minefield loves it when it's all to play for on the final day.

Congratulations to Tew, commiserations to Horspath. It will be interesting to see what Tew do over the winter and how they fare in a higher grade.

Well down Tew!
I am sure they have a plan for recruitment but one bit of advice would be to get it done early.

Agree with minefield and coach, well done Tew what a run you guys have had, thoroughly deserve the title. Will they follow suit and do the yo yo act and follow Horspath and shipton straight back down. Defo not for me, already a well balanced team and with a couple of quality recruitments I don't see this happening, once again congrats to everybody involved with that wonderful north oxon club, the Cherwell league I'm sure are very proud of you.

Well done Tew - but pretty rough on Horspath (unbeaten throughout the season which included a comfortable win over their rivals !).
Hopefully Tew can strengthen through the Winter because, despite what play in th V says, they do not yet have the quality or balance that they will need. As a minimum a decent spinner or two will be required - together with some batsmen that can handle the oppositions spin attack which will be far superior to anything they have encountered in the Cherwell.
Good luck

I was behind their bar man in Morrisons a few weeks ago, he was stocking up with Bud on their summer specials. I'm sure they were passing on this excellent value to the Tew boys on Saturday. Although it does look like some of their players aren't old enough to drink!

Meggers, you also told me that there would be no way Banbury would let Tew win if it meant them going up. Not sure how much you know about cricket or football for that matter reading your last comment.

Meggers,

"Tews legendary off spinner turning back time"

Firstly, Minefield is not happy with you planting an image of him in leather and fishnet sat astride a military warships gun turret in his mind.
Secondly, "legendary"
Lastly, "off-spinner"?
