Ton Start To The Season

A 35 over game was decided on with the West Ilsley Sunday captain. The toss was won and Don Norman decided to bat first. GCC Sunday started off slow, sitting at 32/3; but Dan Harrigan (112* retired) and Lewis Introna (63) put on a record tie 4th wicket partnership of 153 runs. The innings ended with few extra knocks from Tim Jones, Alfie Gammer-Flitcroft and Jonny Russell to put up a first innings total of 242/5.

The second innings started slowly for the GCC opening bowlers Don Norman and Tom Ferry, the first wicket finally fell within the 9th over. Don finished his spell of 5 overs for 13 runs and 1 wicket. Tim Jones (7 overs, 10 runs, 2 wickets) and Alfie Gammer-Flitcroft (7 overs, 42 runs, 1 wicket) was then brought into the attack taking 3 wickets between them. The game was taken away from West Ilsely CC when Jonny Westcar came into the attack taking an impressive 3 wickets for 10 runs in his 3 over spell, including a dench catch by Tim Jones at long mid on boundary, dismissing their strongest batsman.

GCC Sunday won by 100 runs! Bring on the next game!
