ST GEORGE’S, November 28, 2016 – Craven United, Police and Prisons were winners in the Grenada Cricket Association (GCA) Twenty20 Tournament on the weekend.

Craven United defeated Northern St Mark’s by seven wickets, Police beat Junior Murray Youth by two runs and Prisons won by default over Pressure Pumpers.
The match between Upsetters and Munich Invaders didn’t play because of rain.
