OBWCC Fantasy Cricket

Fancy Andy Bevan to score 500 runs this season? Or Will Penny to take 30 wickets? No, me neither. But now you have the chance to back 11 of OBWCC’s finest in our brand new fantasy cricket game.

The rules are pretty simple. You have £55m to spend on naming your XI which can contain up to 5 batters, 5 bowlers, 3 all-rounders and 1 keeper – meaning you even have a choice as to how to balance your side.

Points are earned as follows:


1 points per run
10 points for a not out
20 points for scoring 50+ runs
40 points for scoring 100+ runs
-20 points for scoring a duck


15 points per wicket
30 points for taking 5+ wickets
3 points per maiden
-20 points for conceding 50+ runs (without taking a wicket)


10 points per catch
15 points per stumping
20 points per run out

Each team can select a captain each week and that person will earn double points. Captains can be changed each week. Gameweeks advance at midday on a Saturday.

You will also get one free transfer each week, with the ability to make additional transfers at the cost of 20 points.

To enjoy the facilities at Failand and play in matches, all members of the club must pay an annual membership fee, plus a match fee each time they play.


Membership fees for 2018 are now due. Note that there is a discount for men who pay in full by 5th May. The rates for this season are:

Men £120 (or £100 if paid in full by May 5th)
Women and Girls £45

c) cheque by post to the treasurer


Sort Code: 09-01-27
Account number: 85604667

Please include the player’s name in the payment reference e.g. “M Smith Sub 2017” so that we know who the payment is from!

Treasurer’s Address:

Peter Matthews
19 Fenshurst Gardens,
Long Ashton,
BS41 9AU

Cheques should be made payable to OBWCC. Please write the player’s name and “Subscription 2017” on the reverse.

Note that the men’s annual subscription is £120 and that the 5th May deadline for the discounted rate will be strictly adhered to!


Men Members: £8 (including tea) (£10 for 1st XI games)
Non-members: £15 (including tea)
Students Members: £5 (including tea)
Non-members: £10 (including tea)
Youth (when playing in senior games) £5 (including tea)
Women £5
Girls £2

The additional amount in the 1st XI is designed to contribute towards the incremental costs that arise in 1st XI games such as umpires.

The Club have also decided to levy an additional match day fee on non-members. This is primarily to ensure that those players are covered under the terms of our insurances should anything happen whilst you are playing for the Club. Our policies cover Club Members and therefore the additional amount represents the Club’s view as to a fair amount for a “one day” membership.
