U11s win at Hethersett and Tas Valley

U11s away at Hethersett & Tas Valley, Norfolk Alliance pairs league, 3 June 2016

Garboldisham 277-2 (net score 265) beat Tas 268-5 (net score 238) by 27 runs

Garboldisham travelled to play against a strong Tas team. After winning the toss, captain James Davey had no hesitation in bowling first. Tas’s first pair made a strong start, scoring 24 for the loss of no wickets, but some strong Garby bowling later in the innings, restricted the hosts to a below par 268-5. Charlie Aldous was again the star of the show with the ball and his final figures were 3 overs, 2 maidens and 3 wickets for just 1 run. Jack Whitlam was also very good with the ball picking up a wicket and the other wicket was taken by the off-spin of Oscar Skilleter! Defending only 38, Tas started strongly removing the wicket of James Davey in the first over, but some sensible batting in the middle pairings saw Garby push ahead and when the last pair of Aldous and Skilleter went in, they had no fear and took to the Tas bowling, hitting the boundary on regular occasions. Garby only lost 2 wickets and finished on 277-2 with a net score of 265. it was a strong all round performance from all eight boys and it continues the U11’s strong start to the season. Man-of-the-match goes to Charlie Aldous with impressive figures of 3o-2m-1r-3w and 10 not out with the bat! Well done to all!


Man-of-the-Match, Charlie Aldous
