Four wins (and two defeats) from six matches has them fourth in the Division 2 log behind unbeaten leaders Bramshaw, and Odiham & Greywell and Ferndown Wayfarers whom they've beaten quite convincingly of late. Ryde also beat sixth-placed East Woodhay, which means they've played the current 'top six' and have only the teams below them left to play.
Ben Shannon (75) shared a century stand with Ash Goldsmith (31) and enjoyed another useful partnership with Sam Rockley (31) as Ryde posted 200-9 against Odiham & Greywell, who were unbeaten until they crossed the high seas to Vectis isle. They were rushed out for 97, Goldsmith (2-14) producing a mean new ball spell and spinner Julion Jayerajah mopping up the mail with a 4-15 return.
SHANKLIN, meanwhile, lie bottom of Division 1 after only one win in seven outings, ironically over Bishop's Waltham, who beat Ryde ! They have taken some fearful beatings, including Bramshaw by 201 runs and Ferndown Wayfarers by a 142-run margin
