Last season was JCCC’s most successful season to date and arguably the college’s greatest sporting success story of 2017/2018. Not only did we strongly consolidate our position in the league, we won the prestigious cricket cuppers after a hard-fought campaign. The cuppers final was an absolute highlight of Trinity term for many, which saw Jesus beat (the much disliked) Teddy Hall at the iconic Uni Parks ground in front of hundreds of spectators.
The standard of cricket at JCCC is extremely high when it is required to be e.g in the latter stages of cuppers, however the league presents an opportunity for anyone available to have a bat, bowl, field for 20 overs (if they so desire) as it is difficult to get a consistent XI through the hectic term that is Trinity. We are extremely inclusive and as long as we field XI for the league, it really does not matter whether you’ve represented your county or you don’t know which end of a cricket bat to hold. There’s no need to be put off by the standard of other colleges in the league either as Blues players are prevented from taking part and matches typically occur on a Wednesday, therefore clashing with the majority of Authentics matches too.
