The Isle of Man beat Italy by five wickets at King Williams College on Thursday to be crowned the ICC European Division Two champions.

In front of a packed ground, Gareth Dawson's young side reached their target of 110 with 12 overs to spare.

Dawson told BBC Isle of Man: "It's a fantastic achievement and great for the future of the game on the island."

The Manx side won all five of their games against Germany, Switzerland, Spain and Austria.

Shaun Kelly hit the winning runs, while 14-year-old spinner Seb Aycock took three more wickets to finish as the competition's leading bowler.
