GCC U13s off to a winning start

Garboldisham U13s v Rocklands U13s  Norfolk Alliance, May 5, 2015

8-a-side, 16 overs

Rocklands 75-5,  Garboldisham 76-1

Garboldisham U13s kicked off the season with a comfortable win over Rocklands in the Norfolk Alliance at a very, very windy Langley on Tuesday. Some great fielding and tight bowling from Garboldisham kept the Rocklands score low and saw them lose 5 wickets. Hannah Khan took 2 wickets, Haaris Khan and Bailey Farrant took 1 wicket each and George Self took a great run out. Overall the team’s fielding display was brilliant and there was some super wicket keeping demonstrated as well by Will Pettit.

Bailey and Arthur Johnson began the run chase for Garboldisham. Arthur started straight away by hitting a couple of boundaries and getting the team off to a steady start. Despite some good bowling and fielding from Rocklands, Arthur progressed to 20 and Bailey batted brilliantly to have to retire at 30, a great knock for the beginning of the season. The openers got Garboldisham to a great position and George and Will finished the game off easily, winning in the 13th over. Well done to the whole team – a great start.
