With cricket written off this week by the dreadful weather,
Oxford’s various sides will be itching to get out in to the
middle, with some mouth-watering fixtures in prospect. The men’s UCCE side are due to play Durham UCCE today in
an away fixture in the BUSA Premier Division before a twoday game
over the weekend in the inter-UCCE league. Meanwhile Oxford’s women’s UCCE will be looking
forward to two fixtures this week which remind them of recent
triumphs. They travel to Exeter in the BUSA Premier Division on
Sunday, looking to repeat their indoor side’s success over
the Devon outfit, before hosting Cambridge UCCE at Marston on
Wednesday. It is perhaps the men’s seconds, the Authentics, who will
be listening the closest to the weather forecasts this week, as
they prepare themselves for two big games against Nottingham
Trent – at Marston on Sunday – and a trip to Birmingham
University on Wednesday. This will all be played, though, with
one eye on their Varsity encounter, scheduled for next Friday in
the Parks.ARCHIVE: 0th week TT 2004
