Budleigh continued their pursuit of a top two finish in the A Division as they became only the second team to beat leaders Plympton this season.

James Burke (58), Jack Dart (46) and Henry Parkin (44) helped guide Budleigh to a close of 218-7, just missing the fifth batting point by seven runs.

The visitors reply of 184 was boosted by a whopping 49 extras, as Budleigh wrapped up a 34-run victory to close the gap o the table-toppers.

James Leat then picked up four wickets for 43 and there were two wickets each for skipper Joel Murphy and Luke Peterson.

The Ottermouth men have made an impressive climb up the table after slipping into the bottom four a short month ago and now have their destiny very much in their own hands.

After Saturday’s trip to seventh placed Hatherleigh Budleigh host Barton (sixth) and Brixham (fifth), then go to third placed Paignton before ending the season at hoe to ninth placed Abbotskerswell and hosting current second placed side Bradninch on August 30.

Budleigh head into their next two back-to-back home games sitting fourth, 21 points shy of the leaders and 14 behind Bradninch who occupy the second of the two promotion places up for grabs.
