Topsham St James travelled to Kenn for their latest Francis Clark Devon League E Division game, writes Adam Jewels.

The hosts batted first on what looked a green wicket that might offer help to the seamers and so it proved!

Ross Treleaven opened the bowling for the Saints and he removed Martin Swannell without scoring with Kenn on 24-1.

Ed Kirby was next to claim a wicket as he removed Ben Challoner for a 40-ball knock of 37.

Kirby claimed two more wickets in quick succession thanks to catches by Tamer James and Rhys Beauchamp leaving the home side 56-4. Topsham St James skipper Charlie Penn immediately then struck aided by a superb diving catch by Dan Armstrong and half the home side were back in the pavilion with just 57 on the board.

Penn, bowling superbly, claimed the next two wickets with one of them supported by another fine diving catch, this time by glovesman Rhys Beauchamp.

Nick Horne can be credited for the run out of Kenn’s eight wicket with the score on 86 and Horne then took a wicket with his bowling, dismissing Kenn skipper Parsons for three as the home side were bowled out for 86 in just 25.5 overs.

Penn’s impressive figures were four for 11 off 6.5 overs whilst Kirby finished with 3-33 from six and Ross Treleaven ended with 1-7 from five overs.

bringing the score to 86-8 while subsequently getting a bowling wicket of his own after bowling Kenn’s captain, Parsons for 3. Penn wrapped up Kenn’s innings by bowling the 10th making Kenn 86 all out after just 25.5 overs.

The run chase was hit by the early loss of Adam Jewels, bowled without scoring. At 2-1Tamer James joined Nick Horne and the pair took the chase to 33 when Horne was bowled for 25.

James went next, caught for 18 with the reply then 49-3.

Ross Treleaven was next to the crease and, not for the first time this season, looked like he was a man on a mission from the outset!

With support from Baxter at the other end, he began exploiting the short boundary; at one point punishing Parsons for 24 off one over!

He quickly went on to make 32 not out off 10 balls resulting in Topsham finishing on 89-3 off 17.5 overs winning by seven wickets with the entire match taking up less than three hours.
