Danny on Radio Norfolk

Club captain Danny Cash was interviewed yesterday evening (Friday 22 July 2016) on BBC Radio Norfolk’s weekly Talking Cricket show by Nick Bowler. They chatted about the First XI’s good showing in the Premier League this season and how well the club has done over recent years. There were mentions for Henry Phoenix and Luke Rackham’s good performances in last Saturday’s game against Cromer as well as praise for all the good work put in by the club’s army of volunteers. Norfolk Captain and Talking Cricket presenter Chris Brown wrapped up the interview with the words: “Garboldisham is a really, really good club and it’s great to see them climbing up the ranks… They’re doing well and long may it continue”. In case you missed it, you can listen in again here.

GCC match round-up for Saturday 9 July 2016

Picture: GCC club stalwart Andy Freake scored 63 runs for Garboldisham 3rd XI to help them secure a 76 runs, top-of-the-table clash victory over Castle Acre Once again, wet weather caused chaos to all GCC teams’ fixtures with the 2nds away game at Rocklands being abandoned and the 4ths away game at Beeston, near Dereham, cancelled. But play did get underway back at The Langley for the 1sts and 3rds… Garboldisham 1st XI v Brooke 1st XI With rain delaying the start, the match was reduced to 40 overs. Garboldisham were put in to bat and some big hitting from Henry Phoenix (75*) and Aussie Dan Constable (52) plus a quick-fire 24 from captain Danny Cash, pushed the Garby total to a fairly healthy 198 for 6. However, it wasn’t quite enough and Brooke managed to chase it down with a couple of overs to spare (202-6) to win by 4 wickets. There were good bowling figures for Dan Constable who took 4 wickets for 24 runs. Garboldisham 3rd XI v Castle Acre 1st XI Castle Acre …

U11s bounce back against H&TV

Sunday 10 July 2016: After last week’s loss to Old Buckenham, the U11s were back to their winning form against Hethersett and Tas Valley. This latest win takes them to the top of the South Norfolk Community League U11 Barnard League. Sunday 10 July 2016 South Norfolk Community League Captain James Davey won the toss and batted first on an excellent wicket prepared by Andy Smith considering all the bad weather we have had recently. Openers Elliot Hart and Jack Whitlam strolled to the crease looking to set the tone. Hart did just that, hitting the first ball of the match for 4 and scoring freely. Whitlam got a good ball first up and lost his off stump, but Hart continued in his boisterous fashion and after just 3 overs with the score on 39/1 Hart had to retire after reaching his quota of 30 not out. After this the run rate slowed down a little but all the Garby team added useful contributions – Charie Aldous 7, James Davey 14, Daniel Worby 10, Ronnie Stevenson 6 not out and …
