U13s in close drama against Thetford

U13s Garboldisham v Thetford, Wednesday 10 June 2015, SNCL 16 over, 8-a-side

Garboldisham 120 for 0 off 16Thetford 121 for 2 off 15.1

Garboldisham hosted Thetford on a sunny but chilly evening. Batting first, Garboldisham’s openers, David Thorne and Thomas Toward-Lisher got the team off to a great start. David played some tremendous shots and with some good running between the wickets they managed to bat through all the overs without losing a wicket. David finished 41 not out and Thomas 25 not out which was a great effort. Well batted!

In the field, Garboldisham started positively with George Self getting one of the openers out early on. However, with a few too many extras and some good running from Thetford, the runs started to add up. Thomas took another wicket, lbw, which brought in their number 4 batter who hit a startling 40 off 13 balls to secure Thetford the game in the final over. Garboldisham bowled well with Jess, Luca, Harry and Jared all bowling sensibly and Will Pettit diving around behind
the stumps – but unfortunately it wasn’t enough. Well played Thetford and a good team performance from Garby. Well done to all.
