Marshfield Maidens have made a fantastic start to the 2016 indoor league and are the only unbeaten team in the league with one match to go!

The results so far are:

  • Marshfield v Pucklechurch   284-214
  • Marshfield v UWE   280-276
  • Marshfield v Old Bristolians 262-251

Last nights performance was a fantastic game that the Maidens were really chuffed to win against the more experienced Old Bristolians.  Fabulous bowling from Lisa who scored a wicket with her first ball.  Two great catches; Alyssa wickying caught a short fast chip off the bat with great reactions; Millie bowled and caught a hard fast ball saving Lisa Pagett, the umpire, from having to duck.  It is a pairs game and both Sandra/Alyssa and Anna/Lisa ran brilliantly scoring runs off most of their balls.  Nina opened and kept her cool despite Jane, in a frenzy of excitement running her out not once but twice.  Good to see Emily whacking the ball as we know she can – can’t wait to see her batting outside coming season.  Watch this space to see if the Maidens can keep it up for their match next week.

Maidens lost to YMCA.  Not a great match by the Maidens. 

22nd Feb 

The Maidens lost to the more experienced Old Bristolians 249-227 in the final of the women’s indoor league.  Team performance was a huge improvement on the week before.  We scored the same runs as OBs but got out more than they did giving them 5 wickets whereas we only took 2. 

We have all improved massively and are looking forward to translating our newfound skills onto grass.  A great indoor tournament and to win 3 lose 2 and to play in the final is a really good result for us.  Onwards and upwards.
