CRICKET IN GUERNSEY

The self-governing British Crown dependency of the Bailiwick of Guernsey (including the islands of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm) has a long history of cricket going back to at least 1866. The Guernsey Cricket Association was formed in 1927. Later, 1996 saw the formation of the Channel Islands Cricket Board (also including Jersey) that became a member ‘county’ of the ECB. As the sport continued to develop on the islands, the new Guernsey Cricket Board was formed to facilitate successful applications to become a member of the European Cricket Council and an Affiliate member of the ICC in 2005 (they later became an Associate member in 2008).

Guernsey enjoy a long, friendly rivalry with their neighbours, Jersey, against whom they compete annually for the Inter-Insular Cup, which was first held in 1950. In recent times, the cup has been played as a 50-over contest, and 2018 saw the addition of a T20 series trophy. Guernsey competed in divisions 5 to 7 of the World Cricket League between 2009 and 2017, and hosted the European regional qualification finals for the 2019 ICC T20 World Cup qualifier.

Domestically, 28 teams play in mid-week evening t20 leagues, and 12 weekend teams compete over 40–50 overs both on Guernsey and inter-island with leading clubs from Jersey. Women’s and Girl’s cricket continues to grow on the Island with a full programme of fixtures and training opportunities available throughout the year.
