International Competition

Guernsey has a long rivalry with fellow Channel Island Jersey playing an annual encounter against each other known as the inter-insular match. The most recent encounter in 2006 saw a 15 run victory for Guernsey, who have now won the encounter five consecutive times, although have a long way to go to match Jersey's run of ten consecutive victories from 1992 to 2001.[1] They made their debut at the European Championship in 2006, and finished in 5th place in Division Two, the tournament being won by Norway. They will remain in Division Two in 2008.

International matches are being played by Guernsey outside the above two events also, with matches against Bermuda and Namibia in 2005, and more matches against Bermuda in 2006. Games against France and a tour of Canada are being planned for 2007.2

In Division Six Guernsey finished 4th and therefore remained in Division Six.They came first in the Division Six tournament, advancing to 2012 ICC World Cricket League Division Five.However, they came third in the Division Five tournament, remaining in the division.
