Budleigh Salterton went down by seven wickets in their Tolchards Devon Cricket League A Division game at Torquay.

The Ottermouth men were put into bat by the side that now need just 23 more points from their final two games to complete an instant return to the Premier Division.

Fielding three sets of brothers for the game, the Annings, Oxlands and Dobles, Budleigh were bowled out for 185 in 46.5 overs. Two of the aforementioned set of brothers, Tom Oxland and James Doble, opened the innings and took the side to 58 before Doble fell for 20. Ed Doble took over, but he lost Oxland for a 54-ball 55, hitting a dozen fours, with the total then 87.

Skipper Trevor Anning was next in and he scored an eight boundary 51 while Ed Doble fell for 25, but that was as good as it got as Budleigh slipped from 149-3 to their 185 all out with the eight batsmen, from number five to the last man, managing just15 runs between them.

Trevor Anning struck twice, and Joel Murphy once, early on in the Torquay reply to leave the hosts 28-3, but thereafter they sailed to victory, crossing the winning line in just 44 overs.
