Congratulations Elliot Ede!
Well done to Elliot for making his competitive debut for Marshfield Cricket Club’s senior 1st XI.
Elliot contributed with both bat and ball in a hard-fought, close victory against Swindon CC. It’s fair to say that it’s a been a while since the youth section has provided a senior first eleven cricketer. A lot of hard work has gone into youth cricket over the last five years - from everyone involved in the club - and it’s great to see a fresh crop of talent coming through.
Elliot said of his debut:
At the start of the game I felt nervous as I didn’t want to make any mistakes and let the team down. However, as the game progressed and with much support and encouragement from my team mates, I felt my confidence improve and I really enjoyed playing the match. I hope as my game improves, I will have opportunities in the future to play with the Seniors again.
