The Isle of Man have recorded their first victory at the ICC World Cricket League Division Two in Sweden.

The Manx beat Gibraltar by nine wickets to bounce back after losing heavily to Germany in their opening fixture in Stockholm on Wednesday.

Ollie Webster hit an unbeaten half-century as the island easily chased down a low target in a rain-affected match with the loss of one wicket.

Earlier the island had lost to Germany by 100 runs.

Germany were put into bat and made 166-8 from their 20 overs, with the island only managing 66 in reply.

The Isle of Man will face Israel on Thursday before matches against Spain and hosts Sweden on Friday.
