Marshfield Girls Instrumental in Gloucs U11 Win!!
Alice Wilson and Maddy represented Gloucestershire U11's again on Sunday against a strong Wales U12 side at Builth Wells CC , after a powerful start by Wales, the Gloucs girls managed to peg them back with Alice taking the only wicket with some very accurate bowling at their good no 2, wales total being 137 .
Gloucestershire’s reply began badly at 0-2, got worse at 10-4, even worse at 57-8, when Maddy Elliott and Lily Salter( not of this parish) strolled to the wicket needing another 80 off 15 overs, 14.4 overs later the score was 134-9 when Maddy was finally out after a fine stand of 77 for 9th wicket - with some typical Elliott blocking and pinching the singles to get Lily on strike ( she hits a big ball ) - last ball - Ellie D needs a 4 but scrambles a single only - BUT - the ( by now ) nervous Welsh girls throw an enormous high overthrow to which Lily and Ellie run another 3!!!!!!!!! Cue mass celebrations by players and parents alike. (guilty!!)
Glos win by 1 wicket, with major contributions from our Magic Marshfield Maroons - again.
Roll on Wednesday at Broadleys (6pm start) where it's Glos v Wilts u11's both Marshfield girls on parade once again.
