EXMOUTH'S disappointing season continues to end at a good tempo with their penultimate game resulting in a resounding 118 run win over Barton at the Maer ground.
James Burke (70no), Trevor Anning (52) and skipper, Richard Baggs (40), all made contributions in a total of 229-6 and then Anning claimed a superb fivefer to finish with 5-19, whilst Paul Warren (3-17) and David Lye (2-39), also claimed wickets as the visitors were bundled out for 111 and pushed ever closer to slipping down into the B Division.
Baggs and his men complete their campaign this coming weekend with a visit to Cornwood and a healthy points haul will, alongside a win, take them into a 4th place finish in the A Division.
Exmouth II suffered a miserable afternoon as they went down by 8 wickets at Instow to North Devon II, and then learnt of a big Budleigh II win that leaves everything to play for in what is now a final match day shoot out with Exmouth needing to take as many points from their Maer ground meeting with champions Sidmouth as Budleigh muster from their home game with North Devon.
Exmouth III won, and by a handsome margin too, beating Axminster III by 95 runs.
Julian Page continued his splendid season with the bat, his 95 being the top individual offering in a total of 210 and then Eliot Marks added to his ever-growing tally of wickets with three more as Axminster were bowled out for 115.
The 3rd XI complete their season on Saturday with a home game with Upottery II.
