BUDLEIGH head into match day eight of the Francis Clark Devon League season in buoyant mood after chalking up their first top flight victory of the campaign last weekend.

Fresh from their nine wicket win at Braunton, Budleigh take to their Ottermouth pitch for a meeting with a Sidmouth side who returned to the top of the Premier Division table after last Saturday's three wicket win at Paignton.

Sidmouth are of course, the back to back reigning Champions and hold an eight point lead at the top of the table after their win in South Devon and previous leaders North Devon suffering a surprise 38 run defeat to Plymouth.

Sidmouth's season was launched with a weather hit game at home to North Devon and then, on match day two they took a winning draw from their visit to Plymouth.
