Jersey have beaten their Channel Island rivals Guernsey in the deciding game of the European Under-19 Division Two Championship by 5 wickets to win the tournament.
Batting first, Guernsey reached 223/9 from their 50 overs, with Ben Ferbrache top scoring with 54. Jersey used eight bowlers, the pick of which was Thomas Gibbs with 2/19. Jersey's reply was dominated by Edward Farley who scored exactly 100, sharing a 140 run partnership with Matthew Hanley for the 5th wicket. Hanley went on to score 53 not out to guide his team home in the 47th over.
Jersey win the championship, and with Denmark finishing last in Division One for the fourth consecutive year, Jersey will be very much deserving of promotion to Division One. In this writers opinion, a challenge match against Denmark should be arranged at the very least.
In other matches, Gibraltar beat Belgium by seven wickets to secure fourth place, whilst France beat Italy by 40 runs, condemning the Italians to last place.
The Isle of Man's Daniel Kniveton was named player of the tournament. Germany's all-rounder Tarun Rawat was amongst the runners up for the award, as were Gibraltar's captain Kabir Mirpuri and Israel's Solomon Varsulkar. The Isle of Man take home the spirit of cricket award.
