GCC Cruise Past Shinfield

GCC 1st XI got their BCL division 1 challenge back on track with an emphatic win against rivals Shinfield.


Star of the show was Pete Slade who bowled a devastating spell to rip the heart out of the Shinfield innings, taking a career best 8-21 as Shinfield failed to cope with his accuracy and movement. Skipper Kenza Barton played his part with a couple of wickets and excellent support in the field, including top quality catches from Ollie Carrier and Jonny Russell, helped Goring to dismiss Shinfield for just 76.


Earlier Goring had set a target of 161, with Andy Silver leading the way in tough conditions by scoring his first half century of the season. Pete Slade and Tim Jones also made useful contributions as Goring set Shinfield a challenging target which they ultimately failed to get near due to the brilliance of Slade.
