Cricket: Marlborough sink at home by 5-wickets to Lechlade

Written by Mark Cooper.

Marlborough slumped to defeat at home to Lechlade in the game kindly sponsored by Velcourt Ltd as their recent disappointing form continued.

Put into bat by the away side Marlborough slumped to 109 all out with only George Fox 19, Magnus Painter 16 and skipper Nick Crabbe 14 making an impact with the bat for Marlborough, with Rahal Dyhani 3-16 and Luke Sellers 3-30 sharing the bowling honours for Lechlade.

In reply Adrain Stenner 29, Paul Godding 23 not out and Luke Sellers 18 not out ensured that Lechlade reached their victory target in the 38th over for the loss of 5 wickets.

Despite the defeat Marlborough skipper Nick Crabbe was staying positive" I thought we put up a really good fight in the field with superb performances from our spinners, we'll now go forward and take and build on the positives from the game".
