March Marvel's Ladies cricket team won the Chippenham Ladies Festival
March Marvel's Ladies cricket team won the Chippenham Ladies Festival on what was only their second outing as a team.
Playing in an eight-a-side pairs format, March beat Thriplow by a slender 5 runs in their opening match.
They then lost to Ely, but made up for the that with convincing wins against tournament hosts Chippenham and Sutton to be crowned the champions.
The win outlined a fantastic squad effort.
Massive praise should be given to Sue Laver, Lois Burgess, Melanie Phillips, Stacy Brook, Erin Brooke, Emma Liversedge, Erin Brook, Charlotte Crofts and Ellie Laver for the teamwork and ability they showed in abundance.
The team's coaches, Neil Liversedge and Bill Adamson, will no doubt be delighted with their exploits.
Just five weeks ago, none of the girls had even played cricket.
They will now be looking to pick up more impressive results as the season progresses, and have been nicknamed the 'Avenue Angels'.
