Oxfordshire make two changes to the side which reached the National County Two Fours semi-finals at Worthing last year for their Balcomb Trophy opener against Bucks at Princes Risborough on Sunday.

County singles champion Mark Charlett comes in at No 2 in place of Stuart Richens, and Ian Snowdon takes over from Alan Prew at No 3 in Greg Moon’s four.

Oxon rinks: J Philpott, M Charlett, I Snowdon, Gr Moon; K Holloway, N Rae-Welsh, M Sykes, H Watts.
