Junior Carter Cup Final; Sheringham Sabres vs Hales Herd 

Sheringham Sabres played Hales Herd in the Junior Carter Cup Final at the County Ground Horsford on a bright but very windy day.  Hales won the toss and asked Sheringham to bat first.  Sheringham had the worst possible start, losing J. Moy (0) in the very first over.  D. King then joined S. Taylor and the pair batted well to take Sheringham to 42 before Taylor was bowled for an useful 15 in the 13th over.   Unfortuantely the Sheringham batsmen got bogged down and the next 10 overs, producing just 20 runs and there was a real danger that Sheringham would fail to set a competitive total.  However, from 62-2 after 23 overs Sheringham recovered well to score 104 off the remaining 17 overs.  D. King batted patiently to top score with 55 before being bowled in the 36th over. S. Lloyd (13), M. Hudson (10), J. Taylor (10) and C. Bishop (9No) all contributed valuable runs in these last 17 overs to enable Sheringham to set a target of 167.

Hales also lost one of their openers for no score and after 3 overs were 7-1, W. Neave (2-32) with the breakthrough.  However, A. Janes for Hales then came in and played some powerful shots and the score quickly advanced to 31 off just 6 overs before skipper D. King took two quick wickets to put Sheringham firmly back in the match, reducing Hales to 40-3 after 9 overs.  Janes (43) and D. Anderson (40) then proceeded to play positive attacking cricket, swinging the game back in their favour.  This proved to be the crucial period of the match as both batsmen were dropped twice before N. Taylor bowled Janes and W. Neave bowled Anderson to leave the score 118-5.  At this stage there was still a glimmer of hope for Sheringham but G. Squire (26*) and R. Anderson (14*) saw Hales home with 7 overs to spare. C. Moy (7-0-23-1) and J. Taylor(4-0-11-0) bowled good, tight spells but in general Sheringham were never able to apply any real pressure, resulting in defeat for the Sabres.

Having beaten Horsford and Swardeston in this competition Sheringham will be disappointed to have fallen short in the final, but should still be proud of the performances that allowed the club to reach the final of this prestigious competition for the first time.   Some consolation for Sheringham came with the awards ceremony at the end of the match when Sheringham were awarded to R.G. Carter Fair Play Team Trophy, further tribute to the performances and behaviour of this young team.

Kelling Probus Club held their usual monthly luncheon and talk at the Pheasant Hotel in Kelling on Thursday 21st September. There were 29 members present, fewer than normal because September is a prime holiday month for the retired.

Gerry Saunders our Vice Chairman was in good form taking the chair and being an accomplished violinist himself it gave him great pleasure to have Arthur Barrett give a presentation on Gilbert and Sullivan.  We heard excerpts from most of the operettas including, Trial by Jury, the first one at the Savoy Theatre with the catalystic help from D'oyly Carte.  HMS Pinafore with 700 performances from 1878.  Feet and fingers were soon tapping as members hummed along to the well known tunes.  Pirates of Penzance had two opening nights, one in New York and the other at the Bijou Theatre in Paignton!  With fishermen and police present.

Iolanthe at the Savoy in 1882 was the first to have electricity!  The Mikado followed in 1885 and we heard Hattie Jacques and Harry Worth when they played the parts.  Even Pat Routledge and Lesley Garrett have appeared on stage.  Gondoliers followed with Yeoman of the Guard being the first serious opera and even more recently played at the celebrated Covent Garden in 1995.

We learnt that Arthur Sullivan b 1842 and was at Neller Hall and he wrote the music to 'Onward Christian Soldiers' met William Gilbert in 1871 when they wrote Thespis and 12 other operettas.  He was knighted in 1883.  William Sullivan b 1836 was knighted in 1908.  Gerry Saunders himself expressed the vote of thanks for a very professional presentation because having played at least one G and S show each year since 1955, he knew a great deal about the subject.
