BUCS Roundup - Easter 2024

That's a wrap for 2023-24 - what a year it's been!

Whilst the weather did its best to disrupt this year’s cricket season, we did see some action with the Men’s Blues, Women’s Blues, and Men’s Crusaders (second team) all representing the Light Blues!

With this, Cambridge teams have completed a total of 570 BUCS fixtures this year during the league and knockout season – congratulations to everyone who played a part in a highly successful year!
