Wallis helps March retain Ernie Wool Trophy with seven-wicket thrashing of Wisbech
MARCH II captain Stephen Wallis lifted the Ernie Wool Trophy for the second time in two seasons on Sunday after his side thumped rivals Wisbech III by seven wickets.
In a repeat of last year’s final, opening batsman Wallis brought the curtain down on March’s season by steering his side to a memorable win over their neighbours.
Promising all-rounder Josh Jackman put March in control with an inspired piece of bowling - taking 4-12 from his eight overs to leave Wisbech in trouble.
James Sheppard top-scored with 30 but Jackman was well supported by Jacob Gray (2-24) and David Haslegrave (2-25) as Wisbech were restricted to 146-8 from their 40 overs.
March’s reply was anchored by the skipper himself. Wallis struck six boundaries on his way to a fluent 58 with support coming from Haslegrave (46) and Jake Beart (25).
