The Saints lifted the silverware for Division II and Division III clubs following a 14-run win against Hautlians at Grainville.

St Helier skipper Mick Poulter said: ‘It was a good game and a good win.

We played Hautlians a couple of weeks ago and they beat us easily by getting the 134 we set them to win.

‘They put us in to bat last night and our total of 128 I thought was defendable.

We knew their strengths and played to counteract them.

‘After eight overs they were on top but we managed to peg them back with Grant Phillips bowling particularly well.

Grant took two wickets while Pat Dean was an unsung hero at the other end bowling tight to also take two wickets.

‘Although we dropped a couple of catches Sean Roche took a good one on the boundary to dismiss Danny Bertram while Lee Kent had a direct hit on the stumps to run out Andy Perchard.’ A second-wicket half-century partnership between Jules Nolli (44, seven 4s) and Dean Morrison (25, three 4s) laid the foundations for a total of 128 for 5 in 12 overs.

Hautlians’ innings closed on 114 for 7.

Hautlians captain Danny Bertram said: ‘We let ourselves down with our fielding and we also dropped several catches.

I was lucky as I was dropped in the first over and although we were up with the run-rate St Helier bowled well at the finish.

‘In particular Grant Phillips, he delivered a good line and length and he also had a decent slower ball as well.

‘Andy May bowled well for us to get three wickets while Anton Smit also impressed but he did not get the back-up from our fielders.’
