Another busy one as Marlow FC continued their pre-season with a narrow defeat to Kuwait?!? The cricket season roars with wins for Marlow and Little Marlow, but Marlow Park fall off top spot.
In possibly one of the strangest fixtures of the footballing calendar Mark Bartley’s Marlow FC side narrowly lost out 3-2 to the Kuwait National side in pre-season.
The Kuwaitis put together some well worked goals but Marlow’s determination and hard work paid off with a stunning long-range strike and a calm penalty making the scoreline resemble the effort they put into the match.

Next up for Marlow FC is a match against Kings Langley on Saturday. Marlow have generously allowed all funds taken for tickets for Saturday’s pre-season friendly to go towards helping support Gary Robbins and his family after the former Bourne End youth coach was disabled after an accident. Tickets will be ‘pay what you can’.
It was a good day for Marlow CC and an even better day if your name is Harry, as both Harry Spear and Harry Willliams impressed with the ball in Marlow’s narrow five-run win over Ickenham.
The two bowlers were in inspired form as Spear took 6-63 while his namesake chipped in with 2-31 as Marlow defended a competitive total of 210.
That total was built by the impressive Segio Feede, who fell just six-runs short of a marvellous century.
The win pushes Marlow up the table as they look to continue their fine form.
Marlow Park suffered their first defeat in five games as they slipped off of top spot in Division 9a of the Thames Valley Cricket League.
Eversley 4s were the team who got the job done with a 41-run victory over their visitors.
Park struggled to do any sort of damage with the bat in chasing down their hosts’ target of 216 as they fell all out for just 175.
Little Marlow’s Danny Ishaq produced a stunning performance at the crease to help his side to a dominant eight-wicket victory over Harpsden 2nds on Saturday.
The batsmen, in at number 2, smashed an unbeaten 92 to help Little Marlow chase down Harpsden’s total of 192.
Anwar Mahmood also played a vital role in the win, picking up two catches and a stumping while in the field before smashing 68 runs of his own as Little Marlow picked up the win.
