Jersey were delighted to host the European Women’s Tournament for the second time (previously held in 2013). Last year’s winners Italy were looking to defend their title and Jersey were keen to make amends for last year’s disappointing 4th place finish in Berlin. Each team played each other once in T20 format with the tournament culminating in a finals afternoon on Saturday.
Despite losing to last year’s winners early on, Jersey bounced back with 3 consecutive wins over France, Germany and Norway putting them into the final against Italy. Having dominated most of the final game on Saturday afternoon Jersey were disappointed to have fallen short in the run chase, especially having bowled and fielded superbly well to restrict a very competent Italian side to 106-7 off their allotted overs. Jersey finished 74-8 just one partnership short of defeating Italy. Demonstrating the strength of its girls development set up and player pathways the Jersey squad this year boasted 3 U15 players; Chloe Greechan, Charlie Miles and 12 year old Lily Jones.
