Oundle Town Cricket Club has continued it’s superb start to the new season. This weekend saw wins for the Sat 1st & 2nd XI’s, Sun 1st XI, U11A & U11B’s.  Performances worth noting this weekend were a well crafted 97 for Tennyson Botes against Irchester and a demolition of United Social by Riddler’s Tiddler’s! Not to be […]

Police Investigation at Milton Road!

Riddler’s Tiddlers!

April 26, 2007

Let it not be said that O.T.C.C. are afraid to play juniors in senior teams. Having seen the selected team in Division 11 of the Northants League, I can honestly say that the ‘Happy Meal’ Mob are back! With 7 players being selected with a combined age of less than 100 years.

It was widely believed that a successor was already in place, Michael Vaughan was heard to utter the above quote. Unlucky Vaughny, he’s back and he’s an Oundle Town man. It has become […]
