GCC Ladies to face Topcroft in final

Garboldisham Ladies have finished top of the NCB west league and will go through to the Norfolk Cricket Board Indoor League final on Sunday 29 March at Taverham to face Topcroft CC who finished top of the east league. The only thing that could have de-railed GCC from reaching the final was a big points win by Gt. Melton over Fakenham which would have taken Gt. Melton ahead of Garboldisham, but this was not to be as that game was called off by Fakenham who were unable to field a team. Good luck to GCC Ladies!

GCC Ladies top the table

Garboldisham Ladies have had a brilliant time playing in the Norfolk Cricket Board Indoor Women’s League. In the first fixture, Garboldisham beat Great Melton in a great win which saw the team chase down a big score of 278. The next fixture v Fakenham was another good win for the ladies with Garboldisham winning by 78 runs and taking 11 wickets. By the final fixture, GCC were back on top having recovered from their narrow-defeat to Fakenham the week before where they lost by just 9 runs with too many wickets lost costing them another win. In the final game, GCC beat Great Melton again, a solid fielding and bowling display saw Great Melton set a score of 242 for 6 (net 212). Emma Rogers and Jade Hoyte got the team off to a great start with the bat, scoring 162 for no loss at the end of their 4 overs. Megan Hogg and Primrose Rushen continued the good chase by bringing the team over their target for only 1 wicket loss. Sarah McGahan and …

Saturday 7 March – First cut of the season

Head Groundsman, Andy Smith, took advantage of the fine weather to give the squares their first cut of the season. The mower was carefully set to just nip off the dead tips of grass and the brown uneven squares were soon transformed into stripey manicured surfaces. Andy followed up the mowing with a dressing of fertiliser which gives the grass the health and strength that it will need to see it through the season. The winter weather will have lifted the grass slightly and so in a few weeks time the squares will be rolled to compact them and to provide the hard surface needed.

Your club needs you!

The GCC work force weekend is this week. Please make the effort to come up and lend a hand, if only for a couple of hours. We all want to use the club and it’s facilities in the coming weeks so we should all lend a hand to get things ready rather than leave it to the usual people. It is both days so if you work or play sport Saturday then you can come and do a bit on Sunday instead! Hopefully see plenty of you there from 9:30 Saturday morning. The sooner nets etc are up and ready, the sooner we can play cricket! Danny Cash, Club Captain
