Budleigh suffered a miserable time in their opening Tolchards Devon League A Division game when visiting Cornwood inflicted an opening day 131 run defeat on the Ottermouth men.

Batting first, Cornwood closed on 195-6 with Mo Salman top scoring with 66.

Salman faced 100 balls and put on 34 for the third wicket with Aaron Richards (39) and 95 for the sixth with Craig Harris (41).

James Leat (3-49) was the most successful of the Budleigh bowlers wickets wise, although Joel Murphy (0-28) and Trevor Anning (1-33) were cheap to run in their 10 overs.

Budleigh nosedived to 10 for four then 27 for eight in reply and were only going to get crumbs after that.

Eighteen extras given away by Cornwood were more than any total made by a Budleigh batsman.

Marc Troman made 10, and there was a brace of nines for tail-enders Luke Jefferson and Sean Butler.

Budleigh IIs also suffered an opening day defeat when they went down by just eight runs on their visit to Clyst Hydon in their first meeting with a 1st XI in a league match, meeting in a C Division East encounter.

The home side batted first and posted a healthy total of 216-7 with former Budleigh player Mike Cliff top scoring with 64. Second change James England (2-33 from eight overs) and Adam Jones (2-46 from nine overs) claimed a brace each. The Budleigh run chase got a 72 run start from Ed Doble (72) and Steve Booth (40) and there was a terrific unbeaten 37 from James England, but the chase ran out of steam – just – closing on 210-7. On Saturday (May 12), Budleigh 1st team visit Ivybridge and the 2nd XI host Feniton 1st XI at Ottermouth.
