PUBLISHED: 13:47 14 June 2011
Budleigh II made sure it was a very happy day at Ottermouth as they also beat a side from Sidmouth, defeating the Fortfield 2nd XI by two wickets.
Lloyd White was the star of the show with the bat for Budleigh, hitting an excellent 84 whilst Eliot Rice weighed in with 38 in what became a successful run chase, closed out at 175-8 after Sidmouth had been bowled out for 172.
Ian Taylor claimed 4-41, Matt Plowman took 3-19 and there were three wickets also for Jo Marley (3-44).
Budleigh’s third success of the top flight 2nd XI season leaves them mid-table and next up is Saturday’s trip to third bottom Plympton where a big points win could well push the Ottermouth men into a top three slot.
