Broadstairs Cricket Club beat Sandwich to claim county six-a-side indoor crown at Canterbury

05 February 2014

Andy Marshall was named man-of-the-match as Broadstairs beat Sandwich in a thrilling final to win the county six-a-side indoor cricket crown at Canterbury on Sunday.

Having been put in, Broadstairs’ Andrew Bailey (29 not) and Marshall (26) opened well but their start was not consolidated and their total of 89-5 set up an exciting climax.

With three wickets in hand, Sandwich wanted 13 from the last over which was Marshall’s one and only – and decisive.

One of his gentle deliveries, straight up and down, yielded a catch and, with Sandwich now needing three more runs from the final ball to level the scores and win the title, having lost fewer wickets, he bowled Liam Evans, leaving them on 86-5.

The umpires gave the man-of-the-match award to Marshall when the trophies were presented by Mrs Pam Jarman, formerly competition organiser for many years.

Broadstairs’ next test is the ECB regional play-off on Sunday, February 9,  away to Wanstead and Snaresbrook at the Essex county ground, Chelmsford. The regional finals are at Canterbury on March 2.

Broadstairs (71-0) had beaten Upchurch (66) in the semi-finals with Sandwich (109-3) overcoming Nonington (52). Sevenoaks, Tilmanstone, Canterbury and Street End made up the last eight.
