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 a great 67 with some good batting from Eleanor and Emma Sibley. Unfortunately, Garby didn’t get to finish the game due to the weather. A top performance from the girls meant they came 2nd in the tournament. A brilliant effort, particularly with some relatively new players including Isabelle and Alahne Brown who were playing their first club game, well done!
