Chuggy's men for mission to Malaysia
JERSEY have announced their squad for World Cricket League Division 4 tournament in Malaysia at the end of the month.
Again led by Charles ‘Chuggy’ Perchard, the line-up has a familiar look to it, with a good mixture of youth and experience. Will Robertson, the latest to play in a First Class match just last weekend when he took a wicket for MCC Oxford against Kent, before the game was abandoned, is probably the least ‘rusty’ of the players after an extremely wet winter and spring.
The tournament, Jersey’s reward for winning Division 5, will be played from 29 April to 6 May, in Kuala Lumpur. Jersey will be bidding for their first-ever promotion to Division 3 against Malaysia and Uganda (both relegated from Division 3); Vanuatu (promoted alongside Jersey from Division 5; Denmark and Bermuda (both having retained their place in Division 4).
Jersey’s campaign will start on the 29th against Vanuatu.
Jersey: Charles Perchard (captain), Corey Bisson, Dominic Blampied, Cornelis Bodenstein, Harrison Carlyon, Jake Dunford, Nick Ferraby, Peter Gough, Anthony Hawkins-Kay, Jonty Jenner, Elliot Miles, Will Robertson, Ben Stevens and Nat Watkins.
Manager: Craig Meredith. Coach: Neil MacRae. Assistant Coach: Lee Meloy.
