Guernsey all-rounder Will Fazakerley has been ruled out of Saturday’s Inter-Insular after suffering a stress fracture in his back.

The professional, who made his first-class debut for Leicestershire earlier this summer, had been released by his county for the clash with Jersey and next month’s World Cricket League Division 5 tournament in South Africa.

But he has now been pulled out of the squad, with Lucas Barker called up as his replacement.

Guernsey also lost paceman Luke Nussbaumer to injury this week, and there are doubts over whether captain Jamie Nussbaumer will be able to bowl at the weekend after he picked up a knock.
