Exmouth returned to winnings ways with a 21-point home win over struggling Sandford.

Following a horrendous recent run Richard Baggs’s men have seen their title hopes disappear, but they are in this Sunday’s Devon T20 County Finals (at Exeter CC from 11am) and before the meeting with the Creedy Park side skipper Richard Baggs had urged his team to find individual form prior to Sunday’s big day.

It was bowlers Trevor Anning and Gary Chappell who put the Mid Devon side to the sword claiming seven of the nine wickets to fall for just 37 runs!

Anning sent down his ten overs and returned figures of 4-18 whilst Chappell’s ten overs saw the left armer produce figures of 3-18.

It was only an impressive eighth wicket stand of 87 that saved Sandford from an even heavier defeat! At 42-7 after 17.3 overs the Maer ground faithful would have been contemplating an early finish! However, that 87-run partnership dug the visitors out of hole, though the final score of 169-9 after their 50 overs was never going to be enough – even for a previously out-of-sorts Exmouth batting line-up! Andy Buzz and Ollie Dawe each claimed a single wicket for the home side.

Sandy Allen and skipper Richard Baggs launched the run chase and had put on 48 at a run-a-ball when Allen was trapped leg before for 28. Baggs continued on his way to yet another Maer ground half century before he was the second, and last, home wicket to fall having scored a nine-boundary, 58-ball 63.

Bob Dawson all weighed in with a fifty with his partnership with the skipper accounting for 82 runs. When Baggs was out Seb Benton saw the game to a winning conclusion with an unbeaten 14 as victory was sealed in 28.2 overs.

Before Sunday’s big day at the County ground, Exeter, Baggs and his men take on a Cornwood side who, though bottom, claimed a second win of the season when surprising Heathcoat on their own ground last Saturday.
