Great Melton U11s had a great morning of cricket at picturesque Garboldisham. After being put into bat Melton constructed an excellent innings with James Alcock retiring on 31* finishing with a glorious straight 6, Evan Mercer (32*) and debutant Hasan Sajid (21*) ensured a fabulous 128-0. Adit Raje was the only other batsman to get in finishing with 2 runs off two balls.
In reply the Garboldisham batsmen toiled for runs and there were good scores for Sam and Freddie but the Melton bowlers came out on top. Hannan Bukhari on debut bowled well as did Danny Wright, James took a wicket in his single over but the plaudits must go to Leon Royal taking 2 wickets and Sammy Belderson who recorded incredible figures of 3-3-0-2. Garboldisham finished on 71-6.
