GARBOLDISHAM B travelled to the UEA cricket fields to play Great Melton C.
Stand-in skipper David Fidler won the toss and chose to bat on a track that looked full of runs.
Ryan Jaynes dominated the opening stand of 34 before he was bowled by Hemmings for 26. Michael Swords then shared in a succession of partnerships before he was fifth out, having reached a patient 39.
Alistair Shepherd struck a quick-fire 44 before the youngsters Henry Phoenix (24), Andy Rumbles (16) and Ben Tippett (28 no) steered the innings to 238, perhaps a little below par but a good total at which to bowl.

Phoenix and Rumbles opened the bowling but were unable to make a breakthrough as the Melton openers kept pace with the required run rate.
The introduction of spin from Ed Thorne and John Rogers (two for 53) slowed the rate and then removed Sharma, Ducker and Holland. Bunn, and firstly Desalis and then Fryer, moved Melton to within sticking distance.
