The visitors batted first and set a highly competitive score that Garboldisham got nowhere near reaching.

The result means that Garboldisham are now fourth from bottom in the standings, with a gap of just 19 points between themselves and the relegation zone.

Tomorrow they will look to pick up a much-needed victory on the road at fifth-placed Brooke (12pm).

Garboldisham can take some confidence from the reverse fixture back in May, which they won by a comfortable 139-run margin.

l In Division Three, Garboldisham II (298) got the better of Brooke II by 62 runs.

Batting first, Garboldisham were indebted to the batting of opener Jonny Wyatt and Andrew Whistler.

Both scored centuries, with Wyatt racking up 115 runs and Whistler contributing 104, while Ben Buckmaster made a late useful contribution with 27.

Buckmaster then went on to star with the ball in hand, taking four wickets as Garboldisham mounted a successful defence.

Gavin Barnes also played a leading role with figures of 4-23 from just 6.2 overs, with Daniel Philpott (2-29) claiming the other two Brooke wickets that fell.

The result means Garboldisham remain comfortable at the top of the table with a 69-point advantage over Old Buckenham II in second.
