NEWPORT have been crowned champions of the Isle of Wight Cricket League after beating Northwood in a title decider yesterday (Saturday).
Heading into the match, both sides were in the running for the Leslies Motor League Division 1 title.
However, Newport’s eight-wicket victory, played in tough conditions at Northwood, secured top spot.
The win keeps Newport in the running for the treble, having already won the 20/20, with a final in the Island Webservices Cup against St Helens to come on Saturday.
There were also celebrations for Freshwater after they won Division 2.
Their victory was confirmed after Whitecroft pulled out of yesterday’s match.
