BUDLEIGH Salterton bounced back from their defeat by Exeter with a runaway nine-wicket win over South Devon.

South Devon worked hard to get the ground playable, but had to bat first which was always going to favour Budleigh.

Lewis Baker marked his seasonal bow with six wickets for 32 runs as Budleigh dismissed South Devon for 122.

South Devon were 68 for one with 20 overs to go - Matt Blackmore (37) and Adrian Hewings (19) making most of them - but a change of bowling - Burton and Murring came on - removed both of them and Baker did the rest.

The only bright spot for South Devon was a crash-bang-wallop 24 off 13 balls by Ian Shepherd, which included 20 in one over from Lloyd White.

Rob Newing (41) and Neil Murrin (49no) got Budleigh off to an 82-run start and there was no turning back for South Devon.

Jamie Burton joined Murrin to knock off the final few runs.

Delighted Budleigh skipper Ian Taylor said: "We started well, something we have struggled to do this season.

"Winning the toss helped, but you still have to put the ball in the right areas.

"Having Lewis back makes a great difference to our team, we now have three excellent seam bowlers in Chris Horn, Lewis and Lloyd Murrin."

l EXMOUTH 2nd XI had no game on Saturday.

Former B Division leaders Clyst St George were walloped by six wickets on a damp track at Plymouth Civil Service.

Oz Besley's 25 was as good as it got for Clyst as they were sent packing for 104. Paul Maloney's unbeaten 46 steered Civil home.
