Oxfordshire captain Ian Hawtin says winning the Minor Counties Championship is his main target this year.
They last won the title in 1989 and their 2011 Western Division campaign starts on 12 June against Wiltshire.
"We would like to win the Championship, that is our priority," the 44-year-old told BBC Oxford.
"It's about time we won a trophy. We want to progress on what we've done over the last couple of years and challenge again."
Hawtin blames the club's inconsistent form for their lack of silverware over the last two decades.
"What it comes down to is a little bit of consistency," he said.
"Over the last couple of years we've been a little bit inconsistent at the start of the season and seemed to play really well in the second half.
"But our squad is very much as it was, with the addition of two or three young lads, who have forced their way into the squad, so hopefully we can progress and move up the table this year."
