CLYST St George can do more in their unrelenting pursuit of the B Division top two than win their games and bank maximum points, and that s exactly what they did again last Saturday when seeing off Clyst Hydon.
CLYST St George can do more in their unrelenting pursuit of the B Division top two than win their games and bank maximum points, and that's exactly what they did again last Saturday when seeing off Clyst Hydon.
The short trip to Mid Devon saw the hosts bat first and they were bowled out for 167 with 110 of them coming from a combination of the bat of Ian Sutton (73) and no fewer than 31 extras.
Clyst St George Graham White has had an excellent season and, once again, he was in imperious form, stroking his way to an unbeaten 86, Chris Cook hit an unbeaten 35 and Pete Andrews chipped in with 27 before being forced out of the action with an injury, as the visitor's cruised to a near perfect win.
The 9 wicket success banked the side 20 points and the only down side to the day was the news that both Alphington and Tavistock also banked maximum points haul.
With two to play, and 40 points to contest, Clyst St George are 16 points behind 2nd placed Tavistock.
Graham White's men play their final home game of the season this weekend with the visit of Kingsbridge and, seven days later, bring the curtain down on the campaign at Plynmstock.
The last two for Tavistock are a trip to Bideford and a home meeting with Barnstaple and so, if Clyst can win their last two and bank a big haul of points, it may well prove to be that, with a little help from the North Devon sides, Clyst might just find themselves in a top two berth in a couple of match days time.
