Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

As the end of the year approaches there are a few things to announce.

The two teams have so far had very differing seasons.

Cumnor 1 sit in second place in division 2 with 5 wins and a single loss to City 2. This puts us in a good position being only one point behind Banbury 2 with a game in hand, we played Banbury 2 last week and won handsomely 5-1, this is important as head-to-head is the decider when teams are level.

Cumnor 2 are struggling in division 3 but are already looking forward to playing in division 4 next season, Cowley Workers disbanded last year so Cumnor 2 stayed up in a division which is a little too strong for them.

The two internal competitions finish this week. Congratulations to Robert for winning the Bill Laar Trophy while Pedro finished in second place and Chris in third. The Players Cup is decided this week and I will let you know the permutations when someone explains them to me.

The club will be open on Thursday 22nd but closed on the Thursday just after Christmas (the 27th) and will open again in the New Year the 3rd Januray 2019.

Cumnor 1’s first match of the new year away to City 2 on the 7th January and Cumnor 2’s isn’t until the 24th January.

May you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
