Garboldisham (233-9) beat Brooke (67) by 166 runs

Garboldisham made it two victories in a row with a big triumph over last season’s champions Brooke on Saturday.

With a dampness to the pitch, visiting Brooke won the toss and opted to put Garboldisham into bat.

It started well for the fielders, as opener Tom Davey was out for a first-ball duck.

Next to depart for 13 was Henry Phoenix, who was unlucky to be run out.

That dismissal brought Alex Hogg to the crease and between him and Constable they started to steady the innings.

Constable was eventually removed for 31, while Hogg ended up being the team’s top scorer with 42 runs.

Some solid middle-order scoring from Matt Allin (32) and Kieran Pask (37) kept things ticking over, while James Shepherd finished unbeaten on 24.

And helped by 19 extras from the fielding team, Garboldisham reached a competitive 233 from their 50 overs.

In reply, Brooke stuttered from the off as Garboldisham claimed wickets at regular intervals.

Just two batsmen reached double figures, with Hogg the chief tormentor at an economical 3-18.

Giles Barnes (2-18) and Constable (2-10) also helped to tie Brooke down, with Pask and Robert Fuler claiming one wicket apiece.

The comprehensive victory has moved Garboldisham into third position, eight points adrift of league-leading Cromer.

Tomorrow, Garby travel to North Runcton (1pm), who sit one place above the relegation zone with one victory to their name.

n In the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship Division Five, Stowmarket (208-9) comfortably beat Yoxford (102).
