Family affair in Jersey squad
By Tony Munro
Jersey has named four sets of brothers in their squad for their World Cricket League Division 4 campaign in Tanzania next month.
One of those pairs is opener Steve, and medium-pacer, Tony Carlyon, who were unavailable for Jersey's successful European Division 2 tilt on home soil recently.
The other inclusions are left-arm spinner, Ben Stevens, who was named Player of the Tournament at the European under-17 event in Belfast earlier this year, Meeku Patidar and reserve wicket-keeper, Matt Hanley.
They replace Nigel and Ian Crocker, Bradley Vowden, Sam de la Haye and Chris Jones who is unavailable due to a shoulder operation.
Chris Minty, Jersey Cricket Board's director of cricket, said: "It's a young energetic squad who can all field and bat - nine players under 26 - all good for the future." The team will be coached by former Derbyshire batsman, Peter Kirsten.
Jersey squad: Mathew Hague (capt), Tony Carlyon, Steve Carlyon, Jonathan Gough, Peter Gough, Robert Minty, Thomas Minty, Andrew Dewhurst, Sam Dewhurst, Meeku Patidar, Ryan Driver, Anthony Kay, Ben Stevens, Matthew Hanley.
