Playing social cricket in Oxford

Welcome to the new website* of the Demijohns Cricket Club. We are a friendly club who play our home games at the St John’s College ground in North Oxford.

Although we have an historical link with St John’s College and are the official alumni cricket club, membership is open to all and a goodly number of our members are recruits from outside College (the Demis in our name!).

The club has a strong sartorial tradition, as shown in the banner photograph above, where the square-leg umpire can be seen wearing a Demijohns blazer specially made in club colours.

Please do have a nose around the site and get in touch – the club is always on the lookout for new players to replace those worn out in our service! We would also be delighted to hear from any St John’s alumni, cricketers or not, who simply wish to be added to our mailing list to be kept up to date on the club’s fixtures and social activities.

Why not come and watch one of our matches?


Our old website will continue to act as an archive as we develop this website. We are initially focussing on getting the website operational for 2017, and will be gradually transferring historical data across. Our development to-do list tracks this progress.
