Development Plan


This plan outlines the plans of G & L T C C both on and off the field.

On Field

To maintain Home Counties Premier League status for the 1st XI with a view to consolidation and retention of players, and eventually achieve Div 1 status.

Second XI to continue to be competitive and achieve Div 1 status within the Cherwell league.

3rd and 4th XI to continue to provide competitive cricket for all club members focussing on opportunities for all young cricketers in League matches so as to gain experience and progress through the teams.
