Marshfield U11’s travelled to Corsham for their latest Bath & District Youth League game. The hosts batted first and Marshfield did very well to restrict a strong Corsham batting line-up to a total of 78 for the loss of 5 wickets from their 20 overs.

All the bowlers performed well and were backed up by some good fielding with an excellent run-out from Robert Wilson being the highlight.

The Marshfield reply was hindered by the loss of an early wicket and an unfortunate run-out. Scoring runs proved to be difficult against some accurate Corsham bowling and tight fielding and Marshfield were unable to threaten the Corsham total.

Tom Morris and Louis Fryer batted well to add an unbeaten 25 for the sixth wicket but the innings closed on 55-5 and a loss by 23 runs.
