Victory for Ramsey sends them top of Cain League

Littlejohns led the Peel reply with a dashing 51 and Daniel Dickinson cracked 35.

In an exciting climax they scored 13, to fall just short of their target.

Cronkbourne turned in a good display to defeat Castletown.

The Douglas team slumped from 57 for 0 to 78 for 5, before ending on 129.

Garreth Roome was the pick of the bowlers with 3 for 23.

Gareth Morris smashed 38 for the Town before being run out, Ben Bennett made 23 and Mark Williams 18, but tight bowling from Cronkbourne restricted Castletown to 111 for an 18-run victory.

At Tromode Crosby bowled out Valkyres for 96 despite a brave 47 from Paul Fleming.

The Marown side then got the runs for the loss of four wickets – Martin Oates led the way with 27 not out.
