For older news stories please visit the news archive page

Ryde batsman Liam Ringer was the hero on the final day of the Leslies Motors Indoor Cricket League as he struck an incredible 60 in his side’s 30 run win against Brading at Rew Valley Sports Centre. His batting heroics made sure Ryde secured both the victory they needed and enough bonus points to leapfrog long time leaders EPP and retain the Div 1 title by just 4 points.

Ryde’s total of 133 all out appeared well within Brading’s reach as Tommy Barton (31) and Mark Hartnell (39) gave their side a great start but, faced with tight bowling and 4 run outs, they fell away to be dismissed for 103 to confirm Ryde as the indoor kings for a second season in a row. Also in Div 1, Northwood enjoyed a 92 run win against bottom side Prison Officers with not out scores from John Jones (29) and Mark Tuckwell (26) helping Northwood to 153-3. The Officers could muster only 61-5 in reply.

The Div 2 title race was also up for grabs on the final day but a 74 runwin for Island Bakeries against the Cricket Board’s Disability Team saw them take first spot. Bakeries’ score of 149-2 was dominated by not outs from Matt Webb (25), Tom Wells (30) and Dean McGuire (27) but, as in all the games they played this season, the Disability Team could not be dismissed easily as Kayton Evans (26 not out) and skipper Becky Jude (18 not out) ensured the Bakers were only able to take 1 wicket. Earlier, Ryde School (135-2) beat Newport (112 all out). The School’s total was led by Ben Attrill and Freddie Gurney who both scored 26 not out and although Martyn Richards with 26 and Mike Watson 31, put up some resistance, the Scholars got home by 23 runs. Cowes’ good season continued with a 61 run triumph over Shanklin & Godshill 2. Cowes total of 121-3 (Jack Summers 28 not out and Jason Heap 30 not out) proved too many for Shanklin & Godshill 2 who could only make 60-4 in reply.
