Heading in right direction

AFTER getting off the winning mark under his captaincy, Jamie Nussbaumer believed Guernsey rated 'an eight out of 10' in their six-wicket victory over the MCC.

AFTER getting off the winning mark under his captaincy, Jamie Nussbaumer believed Guernsey rated 'an eight out of 10' in their six-wicket victory over the MCC.

The visitors, who included two Jersey players in their side, will have the chance for revenge in tomorrow's 50-over match, but it was the hosts who struck the first blow in yesterday's Twenty20 at Port Soif.

At one early stage in their chase of 137, the Sarnians looked in a spot of bother, but Jeremy Frith steadied the ship and, along with Ross Kneller, won their side the game.

Kneller was given a couple of lives, but the pair put on 90 for the fourth wicket that took the Greens from 35 to 125, when Frith fell.
