Match round-ups for Saturday 4 June 2016

GCC 1st XI were away to Sprowston who won the toss and put Garby in to bat. After an early wobble losing 3 wickets for just 10 runs, captain Danny Cash stabilised the innings. Some big hitting from Alex Hogg (50) and Kieran Pask (44) pushed the Garby score to a very respectable 248-8 after 50 overs. It was game on. After 25 overs of the Sprowston innings, the hosts were on 80-3 and by the 41st over they’d pushed on to 179-4. The match was in for an exciting finish and it was Damon Egan (106*) who scored Sprowston’s winning runs in the very last over of the match to leave them on 249-6 with a 4 wicket win. Disappointment for Garby but it was a great game played by both sides.

The 2nds were at home to Dersingham. Batting first, the visitors scored 202-9. In reply, James Worby (104) picked up his second century of the season and with 31* from Tom Davey, Garby chased down Dersingham’s total in the 39th over to finish on 204-5 and win by 5 wickets. This makes it six wins out of six for the 2nds!

At home to Castle Rising, the 3rds started in the field and restricted CR to 211-8 after 45 overs with Toby Culling taking 4 wickets for 29 runs and Phil Carr 3 wickets for 19 runs. But with bat in hand, Garboldisham went into meltdown and they were bowled out for 124 after 38 overs. Only Andy Freake (46), Phil Carr (28) and Sam Baker (15) managed to find double figures.

On paper the 4ths had a strong looking side but like the 3rds, they came unstuck with their batting. The hosts, Great Melton 4ths, batted first and finished on 217-6. In reply, Garby 4ths scored just 83 all-out in 30 overs.
