Skipper Cook leads by example but it’s another Clyst St George defeat.
PUBLISHED: 09:44 16 June 2011
Clyst St George completed the first third of their Francis Clark, Devon league, B Division campaign without registering a single victory.
The Bohea Field men played game number six at home to South Devon who beat them by seven wickets.
Skipper Matt Cook led by supreme example, hitting a majestic 90 and there was good support given by George Randall-Johnson (36), Pete Andrews (28) and Dom Hazell (20) in a total of 199.
However, that sum was never going to be sufficient to test the power of a South Devon side that top the table having now won four of their six games so far this term.
Chris Cook claimed two of the three wickets the visiting lost in their successful run chase.
The two sides ended the day at opposite end of the table with Clyst now bottom of the pile with just 37 points to show from their six games so far.
Whilst there’s plenty of cricket left to be played this season the hard fact is that, with three games to go before the half-way mark is reached the Bohea Field side are in danger of being cast adrift unless they can end the sequence that has seen them lose al six of their matches so far.
This Saturday’s game takes them to fourth bottom Chudleigh where they will face a side that will start the day 37 points above them and they will not want that gap to be any greater come stumps!
