Ventnor have clinched the Under 15 league title after defeating Ryde by 7 wickets at Steephill on Friday night.

Ventnor could have claimed the title by calling the game off, especially as the pitch was still very wet after a week of heavy rain, but great credit goes to team manager Dave Cox, who decided to run the risk of his team not winning the title by playing the game instead - the spirit of cricket is alive and well on the Isle of Wight.

For Ventnor to have won the title has been quite an achievement, as they have done it with a very young side consisting of no actual 15 year olds.They also finished the campaign undefeated.
Ryde Cavaliers finished as league runners-up.
