So today’s wet weather means that we are Div 1 champions and are guaranteed to be a Norfolk Prem side next season. It cannot be underestimated as to how big an achievement this is considering that it was only five years ago we were relegated into Division 3. The achievement is without doubt my proudest moment as captain and as a club member and it is a great privilege to lead a side of talented players, but most of all a great bunch of lads to the top division in Norfolk. It is also a huge honour to be the captain of a club that is going places. We are lucky to have a great club spirit within GCC and it is abundantly clear that this isn’t just a huge achievement for the 1st team, but for Garboldisham Cricket Club as a whole. Thank you to those who supported us and gave us a helping hand where needed. But the credit must go to my boys – we were written off by some at the start of the season but we played some incredibly good cricket throughout the summer months, always playing in a positive and an aggressive manner, which has won us praise throughout the league. Next season will be a huge challenge but if we stick together, it is one we can have great success in. Now to celebrate in style next Saturday! Up the Garb!!!
