England XI have won the European Cricket Championship after beating Netherlands XI by eight wickets in the final at the Cártama Oval on Friday evening.

Spain took third place, following a significant seven-wicket win against Ireland that saw them face Netherlands XI in a battle for a place in the final against England XI.

The home side, however, lost that qualifier by six wickets, putting an end to Spain's hopes to lift the trophy.

The result was something of a 'déjà vu' for Spain, who also fell just short of a place in the final in the same championship last year.

Last year's champions, Netherlands XI, have had to hand over their title this year to England XI, who celebrated their success in style at the Cártama cricket ground on Friday.
