Match Reports & Teams For Saturday 14th July
Back to back wins for the firsts for the first
time this season but defeats for both the 2nd's
Starting with the first's trip to Brixham where
the match turned out to be a lot closed than we
would have liked! Here is Craig's take on the
We won the toss with what looked
like a pretty good wicket and a glass outfield
chose to bat.
We didn’t start particularly well
unfortunately losing both Deggy and Walts with
not many on the board. This brought Christian
Bunney and Justin Wubbeling together who set
about the Brixham bowlers. Some very good
batting and both had passed 50.
Unfortunately we lost both wickets
close together however Jack Horton and Ben
Privett kept the momentum and with some good
runs from Jacob Caunter we finished 290 AO.
I the field we started well taking
a few early wickets and catching really well.
Their overseas decided he was in for the
duration and didn’t really play a shot in anger
until the last 10. Once they were 9 down he
opened up with the short boundary and with us
not being clinical against their number 11 it
made the game a lot closer than we would have
wanted. I think they put on 80/90 for the last
wicket - the overseas getting these.
Special mention to Caunts who
bowled really well, Matthew Draper with 4
wickets and Priv who bowled beyond his pup
Good win lads- and great start to
the 2nd half of the season.
Thanks to Bev Walter for scoring.
Here is Jason's (ahem!) brief
report on the Two's: -
Lost toss and asked to
bat...indifferent bounce and some shots being
played saw us reduced to 40-6! Charles
O'Higgins 59, stuck around and helped us to get
We took a 6 wickets with us but it
was an early finish unfortunately.
Thanks to all that helped, supported, umpired
And here is Sean's report on the thirds: -
bowling an impressive opening spell of 4 Overs 0
for 7 which included 2 maidens. He beat the bat
on several occasions bur couldn't find the edge.
At the other end Sean was trying to bore the
openers out unfortunately this didn't work. (9
overs 0 for 20). We then tried switching the
bowling around with both Evie's having a go and
JCB trying some spin, none of this managed to
get the breakthrough though and the openers both
showed good timing hitting the boundary
regularly. We then turned to the pace of Ollie
Maynard his first over went for 18 mostly from
the edge. He persevered and finally get one of
the openers out when they were on 164. Whilst
Ollie kept powering in at one end we brought
Hannah Duckworth on at the other, halfway
through her first over she struck with an LBW to
remove the no.3. I think she still needs a bit
of work on the appealing though. Ollie then
removed their other opener who had scored 107.
We tried to get a few more wickets at the end
but could only get 1 more which was taken by
Paul Hamilton who fooled their batsman by
turning one. A mention as well for Evie Privett
who bowled the last three overs from one end for
only 13 runs. They finished on 298 for 4.
In the second half we opened with
Paul Hamilton and Ollie Maynard who tried to see
of their opening bowlers. Ollie managed to keep
going to the 11th over before he was caught
behind for 9. Ian Duckworth and Jack Sellick
then came and went without troubling the scorer.
This brought Jake Campbell-Beattie to the
crease, following on from his performance last
week he batted with great care to get past the
opening bowlers. We then lost Paul and Jake
Agnew in fairly quick succession. Evie Pitman
then joined Jake and with the new bowlers on
managed to start finding the boundary, they
progressed the score to 94 in the 24th over.
Jake was then joined by Sean. Jake passed the 50
mark soon afterwards, we then pushed on to try
to get to 160 and see how long we had after that
to go after the win, Jake continued to pepper
the boundary with some superb drives and pulls.
After 31 overs we had reached 160 and felt that
with the way things were going we should
continue to push, at this point they had no
answer to Jakes straight hitting, even with 4
fielders on the boundary straight. Jake
continued on passing the hundred mark as we
passed 200. Unfortunately Sean was run out a
little later after scoring 31. Jake continued to
put the pressure on assisted by Alex Hampton
until finally Jake was caught at fly slip for a
magnificent 132 (24x4 and 2x6). Jake batted
sensibly throughout taking as few risks as
possible and still managed to get us within
reaching distance of their score. Alex managed
to hit a couple more 4s in his 16 no with Evie
Privett(6) and Hannah Duckworth (0) the last 2
wickets to fall with our final total of 253 ao.
Overall we managed 7 points but the effort put
in by everybody deserved more. Thanks again to
everyone who played and Jon Agnew for scoring,
even though he kept moaning about being bored.

Match Reports & Teams For Saturday 7th July
Finally the 1st's get back to winning ways, the
3rd's come up trumps but the 2nd's suffer
Starting at Harewood, where on a baking hot day
stand in skipper Buns welcomed Bideford. Here is
his take on the days' proceedings: -
Great to get back to winning ways
today. Lost the toss and Bideford elected to bat
first which wasn’t a big issue as we’d have
liked to bowl first. Jacob Caunter and Matthew
Draper opened up with great control and intent
and got their just rewards by nipping out some
early wickets. Ben Privett and James Degg joined
the party with some equally fine bowling and
wickets too. At 48-6 the scoreboard was looking
very promising for us. Elliot Hamilton and Dave
Wrench bowled well at an important stage later
on in the innings and there was an entertaining
cameo from Jack Horton to complete a much
improved performance from the bowling unit in
comparison to last week. Credit to the Bideford
lower order who, irritatingly, managed to take
them to 150 a/o in 40 overs and gave us a bit
more to think about than we’d have liked at one
stage but still we walked off at the end of the
first half with things looking slightly more in
Second half and with a new look
batting line-up Deggy opened with David Ackford.
After losing this season’s run machine
Dangerous, Wrenchy joined Deggy and the pair put
on a partnership of 60 to lay a great foundation
to our chase. After losing Deggy after a fine
knock of 24, Justin Wubbeling continued his good
form and put on another 40 with Wrenchy whose 35
was crucial in the chase and reminiscent of the
sort of knock that earned him plenty of
accolades back in the day! Justin continued to
play the leading role and saw us home in the
34th over with 65* to his name.
All in all, a fine display from
the boys in all three disciplines and we were
thoroughly deserving of our victory. 20 big ones
was the icing on the cake and a fantastic result
to get back to winning ways.
Normal service resumes next week
with Craig Donohue back to lead the troops.
Thanks to all the players for their patience
over the last two weeks!
Thank you to Bev Walter for
scoring again, Alex Carr the tea man, to all
those who helped on the ground this week and
finally to all those who came down to support
the cricket and apparently there was a football
match on as well that we might have won...!
Flying high! It’s coming home!
Here is Sean's report on there
trucated game at home to Babbacombe: -
Having won the toss I invited Babbacombe to bat
first. Due to the football this was a 25 over
game. We opened the bowling with Jake Agnew who
unfortunately came up against a belligerent
opening batsman who hit a few 4s. Evie Pitman
then came on to calm things down a bit and
finally remove their opener. Things then
proceeded at a steady pace with JCB taking a
wicket. Alasdair Lambie had a bowl but was a bit
rusty and went for a few. Paul Hamilton was then
brought on to stifle the opposition,
unfortunately he couldn't quite get it right and
went round the park. That then left the last 7
overs to be bowled by the Evie Ps. Both bowled
superbly with old Evie P 3 for 32 off 5 overs
and young Evie P 2 for 18 off 4 overs.
Babbacombe finished on 171 for 7.
Our innings started with Paul Hamilton scoring
freely and Ollie Goulder struggling to find the
gaps. Once we lost Paul for 23 Jack Sellick came
in and unfortunately got a good ball early
on,this brought JCB to the crease. From this
point Ollie took charge and started to find the
boundary regularly. JCB offered great support
and batted very sensibly for the team. Ollie was
finally out for 58 and JCB for 38. That meant
that left Evie Pitman, Alex Hampton and Alasdair
Lambie to get us over the line with 3 wickets to
spare. It was a great fielding performance
catches taken and bodies put on the line. Most
nonchalant catch of the day goes to Jack
Sellick. 18 points and we're off the bottom.
Finally here is Jason's take on the two's game
at Bridestowe: -
Won toss and decided to field. Adam Sellick 2-38
and Steve Raven 3-38 bowled well hitting
challenging lengths early doors. Tim George was
as reliable as ever returning 0-22.
Josiah Caunter bowled 0-19 off 6 but they went
after him in his last 2 - 0-45 of 8.
Skips had a go but conceded 3x6’s -
0-39. Felicity Leydon-Davis was very accurate at
the death 4-36 off 4. A handful of catches were
dropped and 50 extras conceded included 32 wides
allowing Bridestowe to get to 239-9 off 40. This
could have been 180 we felt.
Tea plus football followed.
Skips opened up with Charles O'Higgins who after
a lovely straight drive for 4 went in the first
over. Rob Walker joined Skips for the highest
partnership in our innings of 44 before Skips
was caught at 3rd man for 25. Chris Dawe Po (10)
and Harry Kandampully (17) were the only other 2
to get double figures in support of a gutsy
knock from Rob (70).
We were bowled out in 34th for 155.
Overs comparison: Bridestowe - Us
10ov 50-4. 48-2
15ov 70-4. 57-3
20ov 83-4. 81-4
30ov 133-4. 119-8
We weren’t too far behind the rate but the
constant wicket loss hurt us today.
Thanks to the supporters and Dave for umpiring!
Lots of positives today, good voices in the
field, ground fielding Tobin Barker and some
good bowling spells. Batted Rob!
