Thanks to Lydia Raven for organising the rather tasty wine tasting evening at The Langley yesterday evening. We were entertained by wine expert Camilla from ThirtyFifty and got to try out and learn about all different sorts of wine from around the world. A great evening with most of the wine finding its way down our throats. Did I hear that they also do beer tasting events…

1sts and 3rds scrape victory + maiden ton for Lewi

Lewis Taylor after Saturday’s win for the 3rds against Saxlingham. Lewi score 142 and notched up his first century for the club Match summaries for Saturday 27 June 2015 The 1sts had a final few tense overs in their away game at Horsford but managed to scrape victory, grab the 23 points and move up to third in the league table. Horsford batted first and were restricted to 193 all out with Rob Fuller picking up 5 wickets – his second fifer of the season. With the bat, Kristian Williman had another superb knock for GCC, finishing on 96 and just 4 runs short of his century. After Kristian’s heroics, Garby survived a nervy batting collapse and with no wickets in hand the final two batsmen saw them over the line to win by one wicket. The 2nds had the day off after their opponents Narborough pulled out of the league earlier in the season. Like the 1sts, the 3rds had a heart-in-the-mouth game against visitors Saxlingham. Batting first, Garboldisham rattled off a heady 304 for 6 with wicket keeper …

Videos of the week!

Saturday 20 June 2015. Garboldisham v Acle San George Thomas played his first game for the 1sts and, as tradition dictates, he had to sing a song after the match. Here’s San’s great rendition of an Indian party song! Sunday 21 June 2015. Garboldisham v Dersingham And the next day, Phil Carr and Dick Culling play their first game for the 1sts… I reckon Dick gets off pretty lightly – but great rapping from Phillippe.

Gt Melton too strong for GCC U15s

Garboldisham U15s v Gt Melton U15s, Tues 23 June 2015 On a chilly evening that felt more like September than mid-summer, the U15s came unstuck against a strong Gt Melton side. Batting first, Garboldisham reached 70 before being bowled out in the 14th over. Joe Baker (29) and Toby Culling (16) were the highest scorers and there were another 16 added in as extras. Garby were a player short so Toby’s sister, Anya Culling, who’d been quite happily scoring, had to quickly change into some kit and take to the field, only to then be out for a duck. But she took it all in good spirit. (But trust brother Toby to have filmed it. See clip below…) It didn’t take long for Melton to chase down Garby’s total and the visitors were over the line in 7.4 overs for the loss of just one wicket which was taken by Georgie Dunkinson with a high looping ball that took out the Gt Melton batter’s stumps. The U15 games continue to come thick and fast and on Thursday …

GCC finish second in Norfolk Ladies Taverners U13 Girls tournament #thisgirlcan @NorfolkCB

Garboldisham U13 Girls took part in the Norfolk Ladies Taverners U13 tournament this evening. Despite the miserable weather, the girls played some great cricket and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. In the first game they played Great Melton. Some great batting from Jess Davey led to the team setting 77 to win. Garboldisham fielded well including a great caught and bowled by Beth Champion (who took 3 catches in total) meant that Garboldisham won by 35 runs with Great Melton reaching 42 off their overs. Old Buckenham were next up for Garboldisham and again GCC opted to bat. Some good running from Ella Dye and Megan Grant meant that GCC reached 55 off their overs. Old Buckenham got off to a slow start with some tight bowling again from Beth, Eleanor Pringle and Isabelle Gallant. The team played really well but with a few misfields, Old Buckenham reached the required runs in the penultimate over. The teams continued to play through the rain and in the final fixture Garboldisham took in Swardeston. Garby batted first and reached …
