Peel and St John’s will be looking to win another trophy when they play in the Standard Bank T20 finals on Sunday at Tromode.

The Saints became champions of the Standard Bank Premiership last week and have also topped the T20 Cain league.

Their record here was 10 victories from 10 games and in the Karran they lost only one match.

On Sunday the top four sides in the Cain battle it out for the President’s Cup. At 10am Cronkbourne play Castletown and at 1pm Peel and St John’s take on Crosby. The final is due to start at 4.15pm.

A great day’s cricket is in prospect with most pundits expecting Cronkbourne to meet the Saints in the final. However, there could be some surprises in store.

Although there are still a few evening fixtures left, the champions in the T20 Forrester leagues are now known.

Crosby B have topped Forrester One after a close fought battle with Peel and St John’s B. The Marown side have completed all their games with the Saints having one match remaining. However, as they are three points behind, they cannot catch the leaders.

This is the eighth time Crosby have won this league. They went through the season with only one defeat (at home to Ramsey) and ended their campaign with five straight wins.

Cronkbourne Bacchas had a great chance to win the Forrester Two. Victory in their final games would have given them the title, but they lost two of their last three matches. One of these was against Finch Hill who ended in first place, just one point ahead of Bacchas with Castletown C in third spot.

The junior divisions have also been well contested. Finch Hill are currently top of the Under-15 League, but there are still more games to be played here.

Cronkbourne A have won the Under-12 league with a 100 per cent record. Finch Hill A and Cronkbourne B tied for second place. Seven sides took part in this division and there were some very close contests.

The Under-Nine Tournaments were a resounding success. A total of 55 games were played with Finch Hill A winning 15, Crosby A having 11 victories and Cronkbourne 10.

Eight teams took part and the tournaments were held all around the island. Many thanks are due to organiser Graeme Healy and all the coaches who made this year such a hit.

But there is still more to come. On Sunday, August 17 there is the Under-Nine Cup competition at Ballafletcher. This should be an excellent finish to the junior season.
