A reviw of local teams on match day four of the Tolchards Devon Cricket League

Matchday four of the Tolchards Devon League saw Exmouth chalk up a fourth straight win as they visited Plymouth where they bagged a 51-run win thanks to a 68-run partnership for the seventh wicket between Bob Dawson (43) and Ben Twine (43) that guided the Maer men to an all out total of 176. The loss of 13 overs to the home team’s run chase meant Duckworth-Lewis rules came into play, but they were not needed as Andrew Buzza (3-23), Ben Twine (3-26) and Sam Harris (2-22) combined to bowl the home side out for 125 in 33.2 overs.

It was not such a good day for Budleigh who suffered a third defeat in four A Division matches, beaten at Plympton by a margin of 17 runs. The home side batted first and were restricted to a closing total of 183-9 with Trevor Anning 3-14) and Lloyd Murrin (3-35) did the bulk of the damage. However, with the bat, the Ottermouth men were not as successful and slipped to an all out score of 166 with Phil Anning (37) and teenager Jack England (25), making any impression.

The defeat leaves Budleigh third bottom and just four points better off than basement side Chudleigh.

Clyst St George also suffered a third defeat in four D Division East outings when beaten by six wickets by Barnstaple and Pilton at Bohea Field. The home side were asked to bat first and closed on 226-9 with the main contributions being 48, from number five bat, Jayakrupakar Nallala, and knocks from skipper Harry Attwater (32), Dan Kendall (31) and Andrew Donovan (30).

Barum made a steady reply with all six batsmen that got to the wicket, scoring at least 23 runs!

The home side claimed four wickets, but Barum crossed the winning line with almost six overs to spare.

Seven bowlers were used by Clyst in a bid to turn the game their way, but no one had better figures than the 1-22 from nine Steve Bourke overs. The other three wicket takers were Andrew Donovan (1-444 from seven), James Edworthy (1-35 from 6.1) and Sam Read (1-39 from six).

Topsham St James sit third in E Division East after a run-rate win over Exwick. Ross Treleaven, with a run-a-ball nine boundary 58 and Callum Treleaven, who scored 49 from 79 deliveries, hitting seven fours, provided the top efforts with the bat for the Tops who closed on 200-7 after 42 overs.

Exwick were 98-6 after 23.3 overs when play ended for the day. Brian Jeary sent down a full shift of nine overs and returned figures of 4-43 while Ross Treleaven completed a fine all-round effort with 2-27 and Charlie Penn (1-11 from 2.3 overs) was the other wicket taker.
