THERE were some red faces at Oxford CC when their first team turned up to play Valley End on Sunday – only to find they had arrived a week early!

The Club Cricket Conference Cup first round match was scheduled for May 25 when the draw was made in December.

But an administrative error saw Oxford travel seven days early.

After learning of their mistake, Oxford tweeted Valley: “Slight fixtures error! See you next week”.

Oxford will try again this weekend, with Aston Rowant travelling to Chingford in the other tie involving an Oxfordshire club.
