Fantastic Performances At Frocester U11/U9 Girls Festival
Marshfield Cricket Club was pleased to be able to put out a U11 and a U9 Girls team at the Frocester festival today, and what a festival it was!
Loads of teams, loads of cakes and loads of cricket. Uniquely, this season, it was even sunny. Well done Frocester for arranging a raffle in support of 'Against Breast Cancer', we hope you raised lots of money for this fantastic cause.
Our U9s claimed two wins from three matches, narrowly missing out a clean sweep in the last game when a strong Cheltenham side edged the game with some brilliant batting in the final few overs. Our U11s won one and lost two, facing a couple of really strong teams without three of our own more experienced players (needed at the last minute for an U13 game). I won't steal their thunder, but we also had an U13 Girls team out today.
Fielding U9, U11 and U13 teams at the same time is a great achievement for a village club, thank you to everyone involved at every level!
P.S - Thanks to Finlay Crawford for standing in during the last game, outstanding wicket-keeping!
