 Fakenham 133 for 1. Garboldisham 74 all out

Fakenham win by 59 runs

Garboldisham Ladies started their season with two fixtures on bank holiday Monday. In the first game, Norwich put Garboldisham into bat. After a slow start and the loss of an early wicket, some great batting and quick running by the team led to a steady total building. A great knock of 39 not out by Jade Hoyte was the highlight of the innings. Emma Rogers (15) also chipped in with some valuable runs and Garboldisham reached a total of 107 for 4. Garboldisham fielded and bowled really well, including a great catch by Emma Rogers and a sharp run out by Hanna Free. Garboldisham comfortably won their first game after bowling Norwich out for 47 and got the day off to a great start.

In the second fixture, Fakenham hit a bigger total of 133-1. Some top batting from in-form players gave them a good total despite tight bowling from the Garboldisham side, particularly Eleanor Pringle on her ladies debut and Lydia Raven. Megan Hogg bowled the only wicket of the innings, getting out one of Fakenham’s key openers. Garboldisham got off to a slow start with the bat but Primrose Rushen scored 23 and Georgie Dunkinson added some valuable runs. However, some good catching and run outs from Fakenham saw Garboldisham all out for 74. Despite losing the second game, Garboldisham enjoyed their day getting the season off to a start in the sunshine!
