Marshall’s contribution to Gordon and New South Wales cricket has been immense. His contributions have been recognised by being made a Life Member of both Gordon and New South Wales.
Marshall’s level-headed and measured approach has been appreciated by all that have been involved with him on both the playing and administrative front. We should also acknowledge Marshall’s wife Sue for her great support of him throughout this time.
It would be fair to say that Marshall was surprised by today’s announcement, however all his friends, family and colleagues feel it is a great reward for his contribution to cricket over the years.
Congratulations Marshall, a very well-deserved honour from all your friends at Gordon Cricket.
