Lodgey Hits A Ton as 2nds Win a 3rd Game On The Spin

MCC 1sts Trowbridge 58 of 115

Marshfield 2nds went into their contest versus lowly Devizes in confident mood after completing back to back wins over the two previous weeks. Once again random availabilities led to an unfamiliar home line up but on paper it was still a strong one but as a wise man once said “the game is not played on paper it is played on grass”.

Home skipper Colin won the toss and opted to make first use of immaculate looking track. Andy Jenkins and young Charlie Chivers opened the innings and moved the score on nicely to 53 before Charlie misjudged a pacey delivery and was bowled around his legs. The first change Devizes bowler proved to be extremely difficult to get away and Dan Watson perished trying to hit him out of his stride.

2ndXI v Winsley 30 08 14 73Still no panic and Russell Lodge (fresh from finishing his postal round) joined Jenks to move the score on steadily with a combination of big hits and some well-judged quick ones and twos, both players had passed the 50 mark before AJ fell to a sharp catch. The skipper came in next and helped Russ to move the score onto 175 before he fell to an LBW decision from his own Vice Captain Graham Tanner. Jim Creed hit a few lusty 4's before tearing a fetlock going for a quick single!! And Simon Taylor perished swinging for the fences. Lodgey held his nerve and completed his excellent ton and then aided by “big hitting” Gary Hodder they added an entertaining 43 runs in the final 3 overs. Final score 277 for 5 off 45 overs.

An excellent tea provided from Wayne Pascall was followed by Devizes starting what looked like a very improbable run chase but they started very well, Jacob Stone and Rogers both dealt with the Marshfield opening attack confidently and were up with the run rate at 86 from 15 overs when the first wicket fell and that soon became 2 when Russell Lodge bowled the Devizes number 3 for a duck. Graham Tanner and Russell Lodge continued to bowl accurately and with some menace and wickets fell at regular 30 run intervals but worryingly the away team were not far behind the run rate and still in with a shout with 10 overs left. Alan Chivers joined the attack and helped to slow the run rate down and when Charlie Chivers removed Harry Flack the task became an impossible one for Devizes. The away sided eventually ending on 259 for 9 after their 45 overs, 18 runs short.

Another great win for Marshfield (their 3rd in a row) and it sees them climb safely up into mid-table.

M.O.M. = Russell Lodge for his fantastic hundred and quality bowling stint.

Champagne Moment = Gary Hodder smashing 2 massive 6s in the final over.
