CUBLINGTON are hoping to make more history this season as they prepare to play Cherwell League Division Four cricket for the first time.

Cubs enjoyed the perfect first season in the Cherwell League as the first team won the Division Five title, while the seconds won Division Nine in the club’s debut season after moving over from the Four Counties League.

Playing at the highest level in their history, Cublington start their Division Four campaign at home to Leighton Buzzard seconds on May 12, while Cubs’ seconds travel to Brackley seconds for their first Division Eight match.

After so much success over the past two years – including their Four Counties Division One victory in 2010 – the club’s rise appears to mirror that of Great Brickhill, who last year made it four consecutive promotion after also opting to play a higher standard of cricket.

“We’d like to do what they have,” said Cubs chairman Niall Mackay. “They also won the Four Counties title and moved to the Cherwell to better themselves, and now they’ll be playing in Division One.

“We’re got an excellent squad here and are hoping for more big things from the likes of Phil Webb and Jamie Leggett.”
