Following on from a brilliant promotion winning season, there was a lot of hope and excitement surrounding the 1st XI this season. Disappointingly, the season did not turn out as we all had expected with no outdoor BUCS cricket getting underway. But a highlight for the team has to be competing in varsity, where the men get the chance to play in front of hundreds of spectators while smashing Bristol year on year.


This select group of cricketers train three times a week and have a further two hours of strength and conditioning.


The team boasts first-class cricketers and many county 2s representatives. The time spent as a member of this high-performance squad is perfect for those looking to go further with their cricket and the time spent as a squad creates friends you'll value throughout your university experience.
