Jersey beat Guernsey in thriller in the Netherlands

Rhys Palmer flicks the ball to leg side

Jersey's Under-19s pulled off a dramatic win over rivals Guernsey with just one ball and one wicket to spare in the Netherlands.

After being put into bat, Guernsey's youngsters posted 252-9 helped by Isaac Damarell (73) and a half-century from Andrew Le Page.

Sussex batsman Jonty Jenner was the star of the Jersey reply with 87 from 89 balls.

But it was tail-enders James Duckett and Ben Rive who saw Jersey home.

The winner of the tournament - which also features Scotland, Ireland, Denmark and the hosts - will qualify to compete in the ICC U19 World Cup in United Arab Emirates in 2014.
