Budleigh Salterton sit fifth at the halfway point in the Tolchards Devon Cricket League A Division season.
Their 195 run win at Brixham means that, for the first time this season, the Ottermouth men have won back-to-back games. There were three stand-out individual performances with opening batsman Marc Trotman scoring 57, a total bettered by one run by skipper Phil Anning, who hit six fours and two sixes in his 58 and the third of the key individual offerings was the bowling shift by Ed Doble that saw the youngster bag the splendid return of 5-18 from 10 overs.
After winning the toss and batting first, opener Trotman lost his first two partners, Steve Booth and Ed Doble, both failing to trouble the scorers before Trevor Anning joined him and the pair took the score to 89-3 with Anning scoring 31.
From thereon in the Budleigh batting effort was under pinned by the Trotman and Phil Anning half centuries and knocks of 41 from the bat of number six Tom Oxland and a 32 from number seven Lloyd Murrin and the innings was able to close on 272-8 after 50 overs.
Brixham lost wickets at regular intervals with Doble doing the bulk of the damage. There were a total of five bowlers used by Budleigh skipper Anning with Adam Jones – who shared the new ball duties with Trevor Anning (1-11 from five overs) – finishing with figures of 3-33 from 10 overs. Skipper Anning claimed one wicket for a cost of 13 runs from 5.2 overs.
On Saturday (July 7) Budleigh travel to meet third placed Cornwood, who beat them by 131 runs when the teams met at Ottermouth on the opening day of the season.
