Woodbury slipped to a third defeat in four F Division games with a 101 run defeat at table topping Kingskerswell.

The home side, who had won all three of their opening matches, powered their way to a commanding 284-5.

Woodbury skipper Kev Miller bowled superbly taking two wickets at a cost of just 19 runs from nine overs and the other wicket takers were 15-year-old Riordan Deehan-Jackson and James Kavanagh.

Kavanagh then hit 39, but only Adam Olesky also made progress with the bat hitting 47 as Woodbury were bowled out for 183.

Woodbury skipper Miller lamented: “We were again without three regular bowlers and no side can cover that sort of absence. With ten overs to go they only had 150 on the board and that looked healthy for us, then they plundered 130 in the last ten to take the game away from us.”

This Saturday Woodbury entertain Cullompton who sit second in the fledgling table.

Miller misses the game, but that may prove some respite from his early season woes for the Woodbury skipper has seen opposition batsmen scores centuries against his team in each of the last three games!

Club chairman Ian Hughes missed the defeat in South Devon, but returns for the Cully visit though Jimmy Jones ands Nalin Chouhan both continue to be away at University and only, when the pair return will Woodbury be able to field a full strength side.
