Welcome to our latest sports roundup. Until recently MyMarlow was lucky to have the services of Danny Varsalona as our sports reporter. Danny did a great job, and it didn’t take long for him to get a “proper job” reporting for the Maidenhead Advertiser. Not long after, he was scooped up to work for Sky Sports!! This means we have a volunteer vacancy for someone who might be interested in a similar career path .. if so please do GET IN TOUCH! https://www.mymarlow.co.uk/contact/
In the meantime, here is a quick summary of recent results, with victories all round!
