Skipper Ian Crosby said Oxford’s Division 2 West title had been a real team effort.
“I am just very pleased for the lads and for the club,” said Crosby. “It has been a long, hard season.
“There was also a feeling of relief because we wanted to go straight back up and we have done that at the first go.
“It was a real good team effort.
“Seven batsmen got over 350 runs, the seamers chipped in and the spinners, Francois Vainker and Shami Mendis, were fantastic.
“They took 80 wickets between them.
“We also had a lot of new players coming in for their first season. “The likes of Vishane Perera, Andrew Clough, Tom Godsell and Tim Sutton have settled in straight away.
“The team spirit has been superb.
“Even when we had a frustrating run of five games in the middle I wasn’t too concerned because we were playing well.”
