TOPSHAM St James took on Plymouth with just ten players in their latest South Devon Sunday League game.

Skipper Johnny Horne, who last year lost many toss-ups, did so again in Plymouth and the hosts opted to bat.

They went on to plunder a whopping 300-2 with the only two break-throughs by the Saints being down to decent spells from Adrian Miller and Rupert Pratt, backed up with some excellent catching.

On what was clearly a good batting surface the reply began well.

Tom Richardson played the role of the rock of the innings and ended with a good 29 off 51 balls, whereas Jonny Horne made a quick 40.

Despite this, none of the rest of the top order batsmen managed to get in properly.

The visitors' hopes were raised as Adam Tanner and Ted Davenport managed to set a new Topsham St James Sunday XI best mark for the ninth wicket with a stand of 46.

Tanner finished unbeaten on 41 but the final wicket fell with the score on 176, leaving the hosts the comfortable winners.
