Garlick is the scent of success
CORSE and Staunton are the talk of village cricket as they soared home in style against Redmarley to wrap up Gloucestershire County League Division One title.
The victors posted a total of 199, with Matthew Dudfield notably scoring 53. It proved far too tough a task for Redmarley to follow as they collapsed for 103.
Leg-spinner Austin Garlick was the star bowler for Corse and Staunton, producing astonishing figures of five for one from 5.3 overs.
The division win means the team will be promoted to the West of England Premier League next season.
