CHIPPENHAM EDGE CLOSELY FOUGHT BIG SCORING GAME
Bank Holiday Monday, 26th May 2014
The rain held off for this very close match at Withymead. The Marshfield team was captained by Tom Connors who won the toss and Marshfield fielded first.
Ben Sinkins opened the bowling for Marshfield and got the first wicket of the match. The boys contained Chippenhams runs in the early overs and the overall fielding was very tight and well controlled with some good catching by Robert Wilson and Charlie Delargy and bowling by Ben Sinkins and Sam Bellord.
A very close match resulting in Marshfield losing by only 9 runs. The scores were Chippenham 159 / Marshfield 150
Thank you to Hugo Harding and Charles Hall who played for the Chippenham team as they were 2 players short. All the children enjoyed the cricket tea after.
