European Trio take on Sussex preparing for European Under 15 Championship

Tue, Jul 29, 2008 3:10 PM


Guernsey, Denmark, Jersey and Sussex contested the ArabianCricket.com Under-13 Cricket Festival at the Sussex-owned Blackstone Academy ground at the end of July.

Sussex’s talented Under-12 side won the Festival, beating Guernsey by 4 wickets in the final while Denmark beat Jersey in the play-off for 3rd and 4th places.

Guernsey Development Manager Jason Shambrook was full of praise for the Festival, "It is so important for the players here to gain experience ahead of the European Under-15 tournaments. Time batting in the middle and bowling on good grass batting wickets is essential for each player's development. Special thanks must go to Sussex County Cricket Club & the sponsors, Arabian Cricket, for providing this opportunity".

For the first time Guernsey and Jersey will be competing in the ICC European U15 Division 1 Championship alongside Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands and Scotland which takes place in Jersey next week.
