Exmouth 2nd XI skipper Mark Davies was pleased to see Sean Day back at the club a couple of weeks into the season – and it isn’t hard to see why, writes Conrad Sutcliffe.

The Aussie all-rounder may be over 40 these days, but can still do it with bat and ball despite having had a couple of years out of the game.

It was wickets Day delivered in the win over Uplyme & Lyme Regis – five of the beauts for just 14 runs to help dismiss the visitors for 1160.

Alex Craib (2-9) did some damage up top, so did Day and Oliver Pugsley, but it was hardly one-sided as Tyler Wellman (34), Charlie Moss (26) and Ian Thomas (22) got Uplyme up to 154 for six.

Day came back for a second spell to knock over the last four as Uplyme faded to 160 all out.

Exmouth devoured the target in bite-sized chunks, James Horler (29) and Louis Morison (49) knocking off the first 90 between them.

George Greenway (33no) and Luke Davies (19) took Exmouth to the brink of victory.

In a likely sign of things to come, Davies senior, who is also the Exmouth CC chairman, sat this one out and invited Day to skipper the side.

Exmouth, who are second in the table, 14 points behind table-topping Heathcoat 2nds, are away to Sandford 2nds this Saturday.

The Creedy Park men will go into the game having already lost two of their three home games this season, going down to North Devon and Chardstock.
