A low-scoring weekend in IoM Cricket Association’s Premiership saw wins for Cronkbourne, Peel & St John’s and Crosby in the 40-over format.

Crosby remain unbeaten this season after a comprehensive win over Ramsey at the Grammar School.

The away side won the toss and elected to bat but were bowled out for 125, with Isle of Man under-17 player Jensen Eve the pick of the Ramsey bowlers with five for 23. Jack Rowlands top scored with 26.

The 33 runs for the last two wickets, and 30 extras, proved decisive as Crosby restricted Ramsey to only 84 with the Marown bowlers sharing the wickets.

Peel & St John’s kept up the pressure on Crosby at the top of the table with a win over Castletown in their match at Mullen-e-Cloie. Town posted 119-7 from a rain-affected 30 overs, with Ryan Burns’s 60 the pick of the batsmen. In reply, Peel & St John’s chased down a revised target of 129 for the loss of only three wickets with Ollie Webster top scoring with 78 from only 54 balls for the home side.

Corbin Liebenberg’s four wickets proved decisive in Cronkbourne’s game against Finch Hill at Tromode, with the home side restricting Finch Hill to only 105.

In reply, Cronkbourne passed the away side’s score for the loss of only Nathan Knights for 48, with Adam McAuley unbeaten on 39.

l Next weekend’s fixtures see Cronkbourne head to Ramsey, while Peel & St John’s will meet Finch Hill, and Castletown face Valkyres.
