Jersey cricket: Sporting beat Old Victorians in T20 Premier League


Sporting Club Francais claimed their first limited-overs win of the summer in the T20 format on Friday night.

SCF beat Old Victorians, who are still searching for their first win in the competition, by five wickets at Grainville.

Ben Beeley's three wickets restricted OVs to 115-8 with Tommy Minty the only one to offer any resistance with 31.

In reply, Jamie Brewster hit 43, including four sixes, as SCF cruised to victory.

However on Saturday, Sporting club found their 50-overs match with reigning champions Springfield washed out.

There was better news for OVs in the 50-overs format as Corne Bodenstein bowled his side to the top of the Jersey Premier League as they thrashed Farmers.

Third-placed Farmers were bowled out for 85 with Bodenstein (4-16) and Chris Jones (3-20) doing the damage.

OVs knocked off the runs for the loss of one wicket, with Jonathan Gough unbeaten on 57.

The win at Les Quennevais takes OVs to the top of the table as St Ouen did not play at the weekend.
