Garstang v Fulwood & Broughton

Sunshine greeted everyone intrigued to see the "New Boys" playing Northern League cricket for the first time. What a beautiful cricket setting Garstang's Riverside Sports ground offers any passionate cricket follower. With Garstang's captain Mark Walling winning the toss, Mark Smith's Fulwood & Broughton side were put into bat.

Indian Overseas player Rana Thakur 32 batted well ,timing the ball well and showing he's able to adapt to the English conditions on a understandably soft wicket. Captain Mark Smith 11 looked comfortable at the other end until he was given out LBW. Rossiter, Matthew Smith, Turner and Dingle came and went but it was the Fulwood & Broughton professional ex Lancashire player Simon Kerrigan 80 returning to his boy hood club who galvanised the innings hitting mighty sixes down the ground, with young Robinson Brooks (11) offering suppport .Fulwood & Broughton finished with a total of 158 after 47.3 overs, gifting Garstang 2 extra useful overs to use in their innings.

Garstang's bowlers showed great line and length with Dan Gilbert's seam returning 3-24 and Spin twins SA Overseas player Travis Pieters 5-21 (including his first ever hat-trick) and Michael Walling 2-42 preventing Fulwood & Broughton getting a bigger target.

After a Mrs Wallings and helpers cream tea the Umpires Rev Stephen Jones and Andrew Wilson went out into the early evening sunlight.

Michael Walling 11 and Tom Wells 8 didn't really get Garstang off to the start they wanted but skipper Mark Walling 17 and Ex Barrow player Michael Wellings 28 set a platform. Pieters and Crowther could not produce the innings they were both hoping for and at 91-5 off 39 overs the game was in the balance.

It took Mark Winstanley 41 Ian Walling 10 bringing the score to 141-8 off 47 overs. A crucial partnership with Gilbert and Najib Rahman both scoring 11 n.o managed to give Garstang a victory, scoring 160-8 with 4 balls to spare in the 52nd over.

Fulwood & Broughton bowlers Chris Brookes 2-22, Jon Fenton 3-56, Matthew Smith 2-7 and Richard Turner 1-41 made Garstang work hard to reach the required total.

Both teams showed they have the ability and strength to be competitive in the Northern Premier League.
