Bruce tons up!!

New recruit, BRUCE MARSHALL finally broke the club’s 5 year century drought in the 1st XI with a fine 105 no stand against Macedon CC. Carrying an old man’s calf injury into the game, Bruce opened the batting and batted beautifully for the duration of the 40 over innings, hitting 10 fours. Unfortunely Rupo’s bowlers weren’t able make the most of Bruce’s efforts with some wayward spells and a strong batting performance by Macedon’s top order, going down in the 37th over. Bruce’s efforts earnt him ‘Play of the day’ and lays a foundation for a big season ahead. Well Done Bruce!!!!

Bruce Marshall celebrates his hundred with a refreshing ale.
