Jamie Forbes five wickets helped Ireland Under 15s to an emphatic 8-wicket win over Jersey in the final match of their series at Woodvale.

The YMCA left-arm spinner took 5 for 22 as Jersey once again threw away a strong start, faltering from 75 for 1 to 165 all out.

James Sunley hit 9 fours as he top scored with 60 from 91 balls, sharing a second wicket stand of 59 with skipper Josh Lawrenson, who hit 7 fours in an even time 37.

None of the rest of the tourists batting managed to reach double figures in a disappointing effort.

David Vincent became the latest member of the cricketing dynasty to don the shamrock during this week, and the Clontarf spinner claimed his first scalps in the green of Ireland, taking 2 for 39 as Jersey made 165.

Forbes fell early in the reply, but skipper Wilhelm De Klerk hit 7 fours and a six in an undefeated 55 to guide Ireland to a comprehensive win.

He shared a second wicket stand of 75 with Matthew Humphreys (46; 8 fours), and an unbroken third wicket partnership of 76 with Jack McGee who struck 2 sixes and 4 fours in his 42 not out.

Ireland's U15's are back in action next month when they face Scotland in the Celtic Cup series in Dublin.
