Ollie Pugsley served up a stunning performance with the ball as Exmouth eased their way into the Finals Day of the East Devon Youth League County Sports Under-13 cup with victory over neighbours Budleigh Salterton.

The match, played at Ottermouth, saw Exmouth bat first and, led by splendid knocks from Lewie Morrison (40) and Jamie Horler (40), both of whom returned having reached 40, were able to close on 151-3.

The Budleigh reply was hit by young Pugsley who put the ball in the right spot time after time to finish with the magnificent figures of seven wickets for seven runs! What’s more, Pugsley also claimed a hat-trick, taking three wickets with his final three deliveries!

Budleigh were all out for 49 to leave Exmouth heading for the Finals Day which this year will be played at Heathcoat CC on August 16.
