U11s make it 5 out of 5 in emphatic fashion!

Garboldisham U11s 346/2 (Net 334) beat Saham Toney 284/3 (Net 266) by 68 runs. Monday 6 June 2016

Garby batted first and all 4 pairs scored runs heavily and batted sensibly throughout only losing 2 wickets in their 16 overs. Charlie Aldous was again brutal with the bat scoring 29 not out and he put on an impressive 65 runs in his 4 overs very ably assisted by his partner Ethan Harris’s aggressive running between the wickets. Oscar Skilleter again looked class with bat in hand scoring 17 not out, and one very pleasing stat from the match is that all 8 batsmen hit a boundary in their innings! A very impressive 146 runs were scored in Garby’s 16 overs!

The boys took to the field buoyant and confident – maybe a little too confident at times as the bowling didn’t live up to their normal standards. Oliver Lambert and Beth Champion both bowled well with good lines, Champion picking up a wicket at the end and Charlie Aldous chipped in with his 7th wicket of a very impressive first season. The other wicket fell to a run-out by Skilleter. Saham finished on 284-3, 68 runs short of their victory target.
