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 Lydia Raven finished off the innings managing to only lose 1 more wicket and keeping the team way above the target they needed to win. Garboldisham finished 288 for 2, giving a net score of 278. Garboldisham Ladies now await the result of the final fixture in the group next week to find out whether they have made the final on Sunday 29th March at Taverham Hall against the winners of the other league, but being 27 points clear at the top of their group has put them in a great position. Well played ladies, great team work and performances all round!
