'university fellow' is the definition.
'academic' can be an answer for 'fellow' (I've seen this before). I am not certain of the 'university' bit.

'a cricket club welcoming assembled media' is the wordplay.
'cricket club' becomes 'cc' (cricketing abbreviation).
'welcoming' means one lot of letters goes inside another (in sense of 'inviting in').
'assembled' is an anagram indicator.
'media' is an anagram of 'ademi'.
'cc' enclosing 'ademi' is 'cademic'.

'for' is the link.
