by the first wicket with old stager Gre­gory Gaskin. He was given a life on 29, with the score on 31 and pro­ceeded to launch a sec­ond max­i­mum in an over that cost 18 runs. Pacer Kyle Franklyn was the bowler.

Henry stroked a cou­ple of bound­aries and a max­i­mum in a flu­ent 25, while Ben­jamin was bowled in leg-spin­ner Ryan Layne’s first over of an eco­nom­i­cal spell.

Gaskin fell vic­tim of a strong, ac­cu­rate re­turn from the deep with the “over-50” at­tempt­ing a third run.

De­war and Henry turned the course of the match de­ci­sively in Shan­non’s favour, scor­ing al­most at will in post­ing 40 for the for the fourth wicket be­fore both fall­ing with the to­tal at 111 and the cap­ture of the cup nine runs adrift.

St. Philip-based Rangers who were in­vited to bat lost their way af­ter a steady open­ing stand of 36 from Kyle Franklyn and for­mer first class player Pa­trick Browne as five bats­men reached dou­ble fig­ures but none ex­ceeded Layne’s 22 that in­cluded three sixes.

Lanky Bar­ba­dos and West Indies spin­ner Suleiman Benn counted Layne among his vic­tims in re­turn­ing fig­ures of two for 19. Medium pacer Adrian Cad­dle took two for19 while De­war (2-17) made Man Of The Match ad­ju­di­ca­tor Roland Robin­son’s task a sim­ple one.

To the cheers of an en­thu­si­as­tic sup­port­ers, cap­tain of the Fitt’s Vil­lage, St James club, Shur­land Babb, glee­fully ac­cepted the chal­lenge tro­phy from BCL pres­i­dent Glyne St Hill.
