The return of the Foxes…

It looks like the club will be digging out and dusting down the old Garboldisham Foxes maroon and green kit so that it can be used by a Garboldisham CC U19 side who will be formed this season to take part in the new NatWest club U19 Twenty20 competition! Garboldisham will be in Group 3 of one of three Norfolk groups. Each group contains four teams and the Foxes will be up against Brooke Blaze, Sprowston Sprowcats and Swardeston Sharks. These three fixtures will take place in July and August and are still to be arranged so watch this space for details. The winner of each group will take part in a final’s day. Those eligible to play will be anyone who was aged 18 or under on the 31 August last year (2014). For more details take a look at the NCB website.

The last time the coloured Foxes kit saw the light of day was, of course, when Garboldisham U17s, captained by Lewis Taylor, won the Junior Carter Cup by beating Swardeston in the final at Manor Park, Horsford in 2013. This was sadly the last year of the Junior Carter Cup competition so the announcement of the new NatWest Norfolk wide T20 tournament is very welcome. GCC Foxes first won the Junior Carter Cup in 2011 and the winning team, captained by Rowan Freake, is pictured above.
