GARBOLDISHAM A travelled to league leaders Great Melton in what, on paper, would appear to have been a difficult away fixture.

Batting first, Great Melton started well and posted a score of 246 for 9. This could have been higher if it wasn't for an excellent spell at the end from Josh Asker with 3-30 off seven overs. Great Melton main scorers were Alborough, Whiddet, Howard and Mann.

Chasing such a large total, Garboldisham started poorly with N Asker out for a duck. Lee and Leech, took up the challenge thrown at them by putting on a quick-fire partnership of 40.

Then the main partnership started with Whistler and Leech putting on a superb partnership of 153 for the fourth wicket, Leech out on 96 and Whistler on 75.

This turned out to be the crucial part of the match with Garboldisham attaining the 246 runs with four overs to spare.

A great effort by the Garboldisham batsmen in the face of an aggressive bowling attack.

Garboldisham B journeyed to the UEA to take on Great Melton IV on Saturday.

Batting first, Garboldisham reached an impressive total of 275 for 5 with superb batting from H Royston (73), R Muirhead (59) ably supported by Fiddler senior, K Eagle, Ben Asker and Alex Hogg.

Great Melton struggled to attain the runs required and fell short by scoring 204 for 5 after their overs, giving Garboldisham B another comprehensive win.
