Encouraging Start For Under 9 Boys
In our first outing, the U9s played two matches at Corsham’s festival. Losing their first match against an experienced Potterne side who set a tough with some big hitting from two very tall U9s, and then restricted our runs through equally strong bowling. In our second match, Marshfield boys really began to work together, staying alert in the field, chasing run outs and holding a number of catches.
Batting second they all did incredibly well, hitting 121 off 12 overs including a first partnership spell of 55 off four overs that set the foundation for a great performance from all. The boys all did MCC proud in the way they participated in addition to their great team performance.
It was a good morning and very encouraging to see them really starting to take elements of the game on board. Roll-on Bradford on Avon on the 9th June.
