A fluctuating second season in the Cherwell League has seen Marsh top Division 5A after 5 games with 4 solid victories under the belt. Then something of an availability and injury hiatus depleted manpower and impacted the next batch of results, causing Marsh to parachute down to 7th place (out of 10). The more recent results steadied the ship and 7th has remained constant with 2 matches remaining. The ‘drop’ to Tier 6 (there are 8 Tiers) is still a possibility and it is likely that at least one more win is required to avoid that outcome.
A full review of the season shall be posted once everything is concluded and fates decided.
The last two league matches are punctuated by the annual Presidents Day Match for The Horace Leonard Memorial Trophy, contested between the Chairman’s Elect side and the Captain’s Conscript side on Sunday 28th August.
The match commences at 1pm and the Bar shall be open before, during, and most definitely After, the Game!
Life President Mr Robert Summers and Mrs Vi Leonard shall be on hand to congratulate all players and award the Trophy to the winning skipper, and if tradition holds true, that will be to young Mr Kyle – Again!
In addition to the Bar, a Ploughman’s Boxed Tea will be available for spectators at just £5 and at no cost this year will be SUNSHINE! Following 2 tepid temperate years, global warming is finally going to help us out it seems and deliver us a lovely warm day. Perfect for a lazy afternoon of entertaining cricket and refreshments.
We look forward to welcoming all spectators and players from yester-year, with hopefully a few donning their WG Grace kit (Tacky!) and working up a thirst on the pitch, before slating it off the pitch (afterwards..)
We look forward to seeing you this Sunday.
