Topsham St. James 1st XI travelled to Ottery St Mary, where Saints’ skipper Edd Kirby won the toss and elected to field first, writes Matthew Williams.

This soon proved to be a good decision as Ross Treleaven and Brian Jeary immediately found some movement and kept it tight, with Jeary claiming the first wicket lbw with the score on 12.

Kirby rotated Treleaven and Mark Phillips well, and wickets fell at regular intervals, leaving Ottery 67-7.

Some good lower order hitting from George Southall-Brown and Jack Dallyn took the home side over 100, before Kirby struck and Phillips ran out Dallyn with an excellent piece of fielding.

Ottery were thus all out for 131 in 38.3 overs, with Phillips (4-23 off nine overs) and Kirby (3-42 off nine overs) the pick of the Shells’ bowlers.

The Saints opened with Aiden Pring and the returning Jon Sapwell, who put on 63 for the first wicket before Sapwell was caught having scored a fluent 33.

All the Topsham batsmen got good starts and making double figures. However, there were clusters of wickets, and Ottery stuck at the task well and got the Saints to 116-5 before Ross Treleaven (20 not out) got Topsham over the winning line, and a well deserved 20 points.

Topsham St James return to the Bonfire Field for their final home game of the season this Saturday (August 25) when they will entertain Bideford Littleham & Westward Ho! 2nd XI.
