Romerils keep SCF in their sights

And champions Old Victorians get stronger week by week – they defeated Springfield by 211 runs with Jonny Gough and Chris Jones both hitting centuries.

OVs should have a big say in who wins the title as they play both the title challengers while the current top two still have to play each other as well.

Sporting Club defeated third-placed St Ouen by ten wickets at Grainville with openers Matt Hague and Steve Carlyon seeing the former champions to a comfortable win in 18 overs.

St Ouen captain Jamie Brewster said: ‘We knew it was going to be a tough game without four mainstream bowlers but we didn’t perform with the bat either.

‘Sporting’s bowlers all moved the ball around well and Rob Tewkesbury and myself were unlucky to both be dismissed from inside edges.

‘Our target this season is to get a place in the top four – and we remain on target.

We are playing with a bit more belief this season too, so hopefully we can also get through to the Senior Cup final.’ Hague’s half century included six 4s while Carlyon’s 42 included four boundaries.

County player Ryan Driver impressed in Romerils’ 78-run win against Caesareans at Les Quennevais.

Driver cracked nine boundaries on his way to 52 before taking five wickets for 28 runs in 8.3 overs.

Romerils skipper Pete Blackburn said: ‘Ryan bowled well – I did not think it was his best performance but he was moving the ball round a lot.

‘Caesareans had a strong team out and I felt they should have made more of a fight of the game.

Dave Gorman appeared to be the only batsmen to show the right resistance and application.’ Gorman continued his recent good form hitting 70 – all of them run as Romerils conceded no boundaries throughout.

Champions OVs moved back into fourth spot thanks to their run-riot against Springfield at FB1.

Johnny Gough and skipper Chris Jones excelled with three-figure scores as the pair put on 259 runs for the first wicket.

Gough (100) struck eleven 4s and one six while Jones (145) cracked 17 boundaries and one 6.

Chasing 312 to win, Springfield were skittled for 100, Ward Jenner’s nine-over spell yielding four wickets for 25 runs.
