A fantastic sun-drenched morning for our under-nine festival. Two Marshfield teams entertained six visiting sides. So best part of 100 boys and girls competing and, hopefully, having fun.
It was particularly pleasing because we gave debuts to lots of our younger players including a couple from our new under-sevens section.
The results? Marshfield Wolves won three out of three fairly comfortably, including victories over local rivals Biddestone and Chippenham.
Colin, who led that team reports excellent catching and good fielding. Special mentions to the “senior” players such as George, Fin, Joseph and Ben, who led the way and showed the younger players the ropes. George captained twice, setting the field himself so well done to him.
Marshfield Eagles won one, lost one narrowly – and a rare result this, tied one. Nick reports lots of 6s, 4s, good catches, excellent fielding.
Thanks to all parent-helpers who baked and served cakes, made teas and coffees, helped with car parking, did the scoring etc. Thanks to the club stalwarts for getting the ground and clubhouse ready and helping organise the catering.
