Sergio Fedee says Marlow CC’s performance against Hayes at the weekend is just one example of how good the Berkshire outfit have been all season.
The skipper, originating from Saint Lucia, took the armband at the start of the season and has since guided Marlow into contention for promotion with the side yet to be defeated.
On Saturday, they beat Hayes by 77 runs to strengthen their position at the top of Division 2A level on points with league leaders, by alphabetical order, Henley 2nds, who they play this weekend.
“It was a very professional performance at the weekend,” said Fedee.
“It just represented how good we’ve been playing all season to be honest.
“We lost the toss, they stuck us in, and then we batted really well. Getting off to a that start put us in a nice position to take advantage of the game.
“We scored 209 for three declared, in 47 overs. We completely out-batted them, I have to say.
“The experienced Graeme Paskins did well for us - picking up 70.
“We’ve also got a newcomer, a new opening batsman, called Dominic (Spencer) who batted really well. He scored around 70 aswell. Then we just had little contributions of 20s, 15s, and 10s here and there.”
Fedee added: “We’re joint top and haven’t lost a match yet. The team we’re playing this weekend haven’t lost a match neither. I think both teams are keen to play one another.
“I think we will come out on top because we have a really united side. One of the things that we’ve had this year is a bunch of lads that really like playing together.
“This game is essentially going to be the decider for the season and who finishes top.
“Everyone at the club is looking forward to it and very upbeat.
“We’re not really overthinking it too much - we’ll just go out and do what we’ve been doing all season.
“May the best team win.”
