Guernsey Post U15s Inter Insular Win
It was a great weekend for Guernsey cricket with an Inter-insular win for the U15s and another convincing win for the senior team in Sussex.
Jersey won the toss in the Inter-insularand elected to bat first, posting 125. This was down to an excellent fielding and bowling display by the Guernsey U15s who managed to bowl them out in 36.3overs.
After a period of rain the total wasreduced to 101 from 40 overs. Jersey bowled well with a wet ball, but it was excellent to see the Guernsey batmen showing good character and getting over the line.
Thanks Guernsey Post for your support on the Junior Inter Insulars.
In the Sussex league game, the Sarnians wonthe toss and batted first on a testing pitch at Bognor. The lads read the conditions well and posted a good score of 217 in 45 overs. Good contributions came from Barker, Hooper, Martin and Nightingale.
Bognor started well with the bat but it wasn’t long before the run rate became too high. Excellent fielding and bowling from Hooper and Martel before Barker cleaned up the tail. This has given us aclear 30 points at the top of the table.
