Manx Cricket - Century for Hawke

Sun, 22 May 2016

In yesterday’s (Saturday) matches in the Isle of Man Premiership there were victories for Peel & St John’s, Crosby and Cronkbourne.  Highlight of the day was a stunning century by Chris Hawke in the Saint’s win at Castletown. His hundred, made in only 60 balls, included no fewer than 13 fours and 5 sixes. Nick White hit 62 and Nick Hawke 56 as the westerners ended on 289. In reply the Town scored 160 with opener Jack Newbery hitting 57.
Danny Kniveton turned in a fine performance in Crosby’s defeat of Ramsey. He took 4 wickets for 15 runs as Ramsey were bowled out for 117. Danny then scored 42 not out as Crosby raced to a nine wicket win.
Cronkbourne had a scare at home against the Schools Eleven. The Tromode side were dismissed for 131, mainly thanks to 4 for 11 from Will Wood and an excellent 60 from Carl Mellors. In reply the Scholars looked well placed at 59 for 2, but a four wicket spell from Max Stokoe wrecked their hopes and they finished on 101.
