Please be advised that this Sunday’s (September 10th) game against Flycatchers has been cancelled due to logistics and God. Apologies to those that have signed up already in anticipation.

This means that Sunday’s convincing 7 wicket victory against Remnants was the closing chapter on an excellent season full of noteworthy achievements, more of which to come at a later date.

Sheringham CC, 10/6/17

GCC extends its hearty maritime thanks to the bold, brave and generous souls who contributed so freely and selflessly to the Club’s visit to the highly-individual coastal gem that is Sheringham; and, indeed, in its visit also to West Runton, home of the irresistible Rocky Bottoms and its seafood delights.

A Good Start!

Sunday’s remarkable victory against the hosts’ spirited combat was a fitting conclusion to a happy weekend of Club loyalty, dedication and energy.

The non-playing coaching and backroom staff of Foster, Travers and Wilson (S) offered, as always, a matchless platform upon which much of the team’s quite remarkable efforts were built.

There were no exceptions to a full Club display of prowess at the crease and/or in the field. Individual praise is of course not usually GCC’s way; but it is vital that mention, however fleetingly, is made of an astonishing foundation provided by an awesome opening stand from Anderson and Farman – patient, talented, artistic and indeed inspiring.

Support Crew…Supporting

Thank you and well done to you all.

Giorgio

ps: the hoteliers, restaurant owners and very many publicans of Sheringham and West Runton have expressed heartfelt (and certainly pocket-felt) thanks to all concerned.

It was a bit dark but at least not raining as L&O, one of Giorgio’s old teams, featured in a high scoring match on Sunday. Sadly, I missed Baggers’ innings but was treated to a blow by blow replay by the man himself. Meanwhile Jamie Menzies and John Anderson were smashing the ball around making some pretty reasonable bowling look some what less so. John was out to a truly spectacular catch which, of course, I missed with the camera. You won’t see much better anywhere. Will Wray, back for the moment at least, didn’t slow things down much as Jamie upped the tempo to reach a well deserved century. But suddenly the game switched back in L&O’s favour as GCC’s effort in the slog overs was a little anti-climatic (to put it mildly). Still the 220+ score looked a challenging total.

Clockwise from top left: JM, WW, JA, WT

Jamie on his way to an unbeaten century

WW shows some deft footwork (same delivery…)

Returning after our own tea, Jake Jones and Will Thwaites were showing some serious pace as far as I could see. L&O had two experienced batters who played rather savily knowing that this pace barage could hardly last. Replacing Jake, Sam Ludford was the unlucky one as L&O rapidly went through the gears. Will (Wray) had a bit more success but it was Jamie (who else) who finally put the brakes on the procedings with a couple of quick wickets. This proved to be a crucial turning point and GCC came out some 60 runs to the good.

Pace! JJ top, WT (same delivery) bottom two
