THE Francis Clark Devon Cricket League was savaged by the Saturday weather to such an extent that, of the 74 matches that should have been played across the 15 Divisions, play was possible in only seven, and at no ground was a match played beyond the tea interval!In 1st XI cricket, of the 34 matches that should have been played there was action in just three, all in East Devon with 29 overs bowled at Yarcombe where Filleigh were the E Division visitors, 26 overs at Uplyme where a D Division match against Hatherleigh was on the menu and 23 overs at Upottery where Topsham St James were the opposition for an E Division game.There was also play in four of the day's 2nd XI matches, and again the fortunate few to see any action were in East Devon.Saturday was week six of the season and therefore the 1/3rd point of the season has been reached.In terms of local sides Budleigh go into Saturday's home meeting with top flight new boys Bradninch trailing the Mid Devon side by three places and four points.Budleigh go into the Bradninch game having accumulated just 57 points from their first six outings and sit, one place, and four points, above the bottom two.Exmouth are involved in the Devon league 'game of the day' when they travel to face A Division leaders Braunton.The Maer ground men will travel up the Link Road looking to close the 14 point gap between the sides.Clyst St George have home advantage when they face a Clyst Hydon side who will start the game two places, and 17 points behind the 4th placed hosts.Woodbury visit Exeter Civil Service and Topsham St James host 5th placed Kenn in Division F.
