The Isle of Man were quick out of the blocks in their reply with Dollin Jansen setting the tone with 19 off the opening over, ably supported by Luke Ward. Dollin completed his third fifty of the tour, eventually finishing 73 not out including an opening partnership of 119 with Luke Ward (33).
An excellent Guernsey festival for the U15s with the three wins reflecting how well they played. There were some excellent individual and team performances with everyone contributing with the either the bat, ball or in the field. The fielding unit was well led by JJ Griffin and Joe Humphrey, Nathan Williams captained maturely setting intelligent fields in conjunction with the bowlers and Henry Telford was very consistent behind the stumps.
