Match summaries: Saturday 19 August 2017

With the season nearly at an end, here’s a quick summary of how all the Garboldisham teams got on this weekend. The 1sts were at home and faced local rivals Old Buckenham. It was another key match that Garby really needed to win to help keep the wolf from the door and avoid relegation. Garboldisham batted first but no batsman was able to go on and notch up a big score and they found themselves worryingly bowled out for 149. Captain Danny Cash highest scored with 31. However, 2 early Buckenham wickets from Tom Davey and then 3 wickets for just 5 runs from Kieran Pask, which included the removal of Old Buck’ danger man Andrew Lawrence on 51, started to turn the game in Garby’s favour. A devastating spell of bowling from Alex Hogg (4-10) saw him run through the Old Buckenham lower order and they were all out for 133 in the 41st over to give Garboldisham a great win! Next week, the 1sts face Acle away. If they win then they’ll guarantee themselves survival in the Premier League but if they lose …

U15s do the double!

SNCL u15 Carnival Cup at The Langley Tuesday 30 August Last week the u15s won the Norfolk Alliance Andy Seeley cup and today they added yet another trophy to their cabinet with victory in the SNCL u15 final. They’ve established themselves as one of Garboldisham CC’s best youth teams ever. The South Norfolk Community League Carnival Cup is a brand new event that takes the top two teams from each of the two SNCL leagues and brings them together to play in a Finals Day – semis, a final and a 3rd/4th place play-off. Garboldisham u15s were drawn against Acle in the semi-final. Acle batted first and after an early batting collapse, recovered before being bowled out for 81 in the 13th over. There were two wickets apiece for Louis Hart and Toby Culling, and one each for Angus Russell, Harry Southgate and George Self, plus a run-out. Toby and George Southgate opened the batting for Garboldisham and they were soon finding the boundaries. A very fruitful ‘power-play’ over (all scores are doubled in the power-play) saw Garby pick up 34 runs from that one over alone and …

Pask takes a 6-fer against Diss to wrap up a glorious season for the 1sts

Photo: Kieran Pask takes his 6th wicket at Rectory Meadow for the 1st XI against Diss On the final day of the season, Kieran Pask took 6 wickets against his old club Diss to help GCC 1st XI to a three wicket victory and a second place finish in the Norfolk Alliance Premier League in only their first season of top-flight cricket! It wraps up a fantastic season for captain Danny Cash and the 1sts that includes winning the Lady Mary Trophy last weekend. Garboldisham won the toss at Rectory Meadow and put Diss in to bat and it wasn’t long before Kieran Pask was tearing through Diss’s top and middle order with a ruthless display of bowling. Two more wickets from Dan Constable and one apiece from Alex Hogg and Rob Fuller had Diss bowled out for just 114 in the 36th over. However, it wasn’t all plain sailing in reply with Garby losing 7 wickets before they were safely over the line. Dan Constable picked up his 6th half century for the 1sts. 1st XI 27.08.2016 …
