The six teams from the third edition of the Fairway Group Super League Cricket raised £2,314 for their chosen charities this summer.

Each team nominated a charity close to their hearts and took turns to raise funds during the eight week tournament.

The chosen charities were: Lord's Taverners (Jersey Lionesses), MIND Jersey (Farmers Bulls), Macmillan Cancer Support Jersey (OV Vipers), Dorset Anti-Bullying Service (SOS Scorpions), Cystic Fibrosis Trust (Walkovers Warriors) and JSPCA (SOS Storm).

97 players including 22 females aged 11-18 years old took part in the initiative which has grown and grown over the previous three years and provides a pathway to senior cricket.

Most of the Jersey Lionesses went on to represent Jersey in their first full ICC T20 International tournament defeating France, Austria and Norway.

Lee Meloy, Cricket Development Manager for the Jersey Cricket Board, said: "this initiative has grown every year and we are thrilled with the results we are seeing. The players are certainly enjoying their cricket in this environment as well as making the transition into senior men's club cricket and women's T20I cricket. This year alone we saw 21 junior players debut for their local club side; making the total now 62 over the past 3 years."

OV Vipers won the Fairway Group Super League for the third time in a row, beating SOS Storm while SOS Scorpions took home the Plate.

John Robson, Director at Fairway Group, presented the trophies and was impressed at the standard: "This is a great way to spend a Sunday morning and the level is very high. I've also been impressed by the level of maturity shown by all of the teams and the emphasis on playing in the spirit of the game, not just being competitive."

"Lee and his team continue to do a sterling job in making this all come together and Fairway has been delighted to support the development of junior cricket in the island as it goes from strength to strength."
