Horley Cricket Club is pleased to announce that they are the latest cricket club in Oxfordshire to achieve Clubmark status. Clubmark is an ECB and Sport England mark of a high quality cricket club for juniors and adults and the Community. A stamp of approval that all clubs aspire to achieve, it represents high quality, safety, fair and focussed support for all.
Horley’s road to successfully achieving this status has not been straight forward but thanks to the tireless work of Club chairman Dave Beck and Club secretary Claire Bottoms, 2014 saw the final successful evidence file submission and site visit.
Clubmark is one of many recent high points for Horley Cricket Club in looking forward to 2015 and beyond… Dave says ‘the Club is making excellent strides both on and off the field. We run four successful Junior sides from U9 upwards and the two Senior League sides both progress through the Cherwell League culminating this last season in the Club being Cherwell League’s Club of the Year. It is within our plans to continue the development of our Youth section and bring our younger players through to Senior cricket. Off the field we now have sponsorship of our Junior section and both Adult sides. We have started the process to replace our pavilion and we believe having the Clubmark accreditation will help us tremendously in achieving our on and off field aims.’

Horley 1’s 190
Leighton Buzzard 2’s 96
Horley maintained their record as the only unbeaten Cherwell League team as they concluded the season with a 94 run victory over Leighton Buzzard 2’s.
Opting to bat first, stand-in skipper Dave Clark (54) led from the front scoring a quick fire half century before being the 5th wicket to fall with the score on 86-5. As Rhiaan Krynauw (6-38) tore through Horley’s top order it took some resolute defence from Adam Webb (18) and Nick Tarrant (14) to stem the rot and turn the game back in Horley’s favour. Jon Hart (36) and Dave Eaton (17) moved the score on quickly with some big hitting but both holed out as Horley were bowled out for the first time this season.
Buzzard were soon on the back foot though as a blistering open spell from Adam Webb (3-29) reduced the visitors to 12-3. Darren De Bruyn (6-48) was not to be denied either as the next three wickets followed in quick succession leaving the game all but over at 36-6. Only Krynauw (60) provided any sort of resistance as De Bruyn continued to torment the tail with two more wickets. Krynauw’s defiant innings finally came to a close, along with the season, as De Bruyn took his 6th wicket.
Horley combined 1st & 2nd team points (375 & 322) totals also earned them the coveted Peter Baker Trophy for the Cherwell League Club of the Year.
