Both the Guernsey and Jersey Cricket Boards were delighted to see the fourth playing of the Women’s Inter Insular Trophy on Tuesday at a sun drenched KGV. There has been a welcome growth in participants to both girls and women’s cricket activities in both islands, and this match is the culmination of this.

Reaching this point has been thanks to the efforts of Gemma Dunning and Rose Hill in Jersey, and Hannah Mechem, Katie Watson and Colette Gooding in Guernsey, amongst others over the years. Both the GCB and JCB look forward to seeing the Trophy competed for year on year long into the future.

The media coverage on Tuesday was fantastic, and the passion of comment afterwards highlights the interest the rivalry now creates. Roll on 2018 and the return in Jersey!
