Men's Authentics

The Tics also enjoyed an extremely successful season in 2019. The season will best be remembered for seeing the Tics defeat the Crusaders in all 3 varsity matches for the first time since the T20 fixture was introduced. The team defeated the Crusaders by an innings and 38 runs at the Parks in the 3-day game in early July, and were victorious in a tense T20 victory at Fenner’s, to go along with a comfortable 50-over win at the Parks. 

 

Elsewhere, the Tics performed strongly in BUCS, finishing third in their league, succumbing only to Leicester and Nottingham Trent 1st XIs in difficult away fixtures. Other highlights included a crushing win over the Cryptics, a hard-fought win over the Free Foresters and a tense draw against the MCC at the Parks. 

 

With over 30 players retained in the squad this year, the Tics should be in strong shape for 2020!
