Rhys Palmer's solitary wicket last Saturday was enough for him to secure the Rathbones Handicap in his first full season in the Premier league. Playing off a handicap of  46, and 58 points leader Dan Garton going into the final week he needed 13 points to steal the trophy from poor Garton who was unavailable for St Ouen's final match.  A single wicket was therefore just enough for him to take the lead and win first prize of a pair of tickets to a one day international and travel vouchers. Palmer's points came largely from the 20 wickets he took throughout the season, joint second highest, with Tony Carlyon, behind Corne Bodenstein who took twenty four and would surely have been a serious challenger had he managed to play a couple more matches. As it was he finished in third spot 75 points behind Dan Garton who held on for second. Garton has had a prominent position all season thanks to his consistent run scoring, a total of 371 (third highest) throughout the season. St Ouen's Joe Bevis finished in fourth spot, taking 16 wickets throughout the season

 

The highest points total, (not including handicap) was scored by Ryan Driver with 951 points.

 

Once again thanks to Rathbones for their generous support of the competition.
