Old Owen's Association and Sports Club Limited

  Cricket

We have a thriving Cricket sporting calendar at Old Owen’s Association and Sports Club Limited (Old Owens Sports Ground, Coopers Lane, Northaw, Potters Bar, EN6 4NF).

The facilities for Cricket at the Old Owen’s Sports Ground consist of 2 cricket squares which are meticulously looked after by our groundsman and both are covered in adverse weather conditions. Facilities also include newly refurbished changing rooms in 2017 and a fantastic Clubhouse equipped with Bar, Lounges, TV’s and a Function Room.

The Old Owen’s Cricket Club has 3 Saturday XI’s that will play in season 2018 in the Saracens Herts League (www.hertsleague.co.uk) in divisions 1, 7A and Regional A East respectively.

It was a fairly successful 2017 season for the Cricket Club as the 1st XI, a young team, finished 4th in Division 1 after leading the division until the last 2 weeks of the season. The team were only 31 pts behind the eventual winners Harpenden II.  The 2nd XI finished 5th in Division 7A, a notable achievement considering availability issues throughout the season. The 3rd XI finished 3rd in  Regional A East  only 4 pts behind the second place team Northampton Exiles III who were promoted. The team also lost the possibility of gaining maximum points due to concessions from 4 teams at the bottom of the league.

The League season starts at the beginning of May and finishes in early September for all teams. League fixtures normally start at 1 p.m. and consist of both limited overs and timed matches.

Winter indoor nets will commence weekly from Thursday 25 January at 8pm at the University of Hertfordshire, De Havilland Campus, Mosquito Way, Hatfield AL10 9EU, after which Outdoor Nets will be available at the Ground on Thursdays during the season, starting from 6.15 pm onwards (All are welcome).

Old Owens Cricket Club will also be embarking on a Tour to Norfolk from 27-29th May 2018 inclusive, staying at the Wensum Valley Hotel, Beech Avenue, Taverham, Norwich NR8 6HP. If interested, please contact Shaun Flook on email: shaunflook@aol.com.
