Tolchards Devon Cricket League draws to a close

The Tolchards Devon Cricket League draws to a close this coming Saturday (August 31) and none of our local sides have too much to play for.

Exmouth secured their Premier status for another year last weekend and their latest outing saw them travel to Torquay where they won by three five wickets and, in doing so, consigned Torquay to an instant return to the A Division.

This Saturday, the Maer men bring the curtain down on the campaign with a home game against a Sandford side who will be looking to bank the five points they need to be sure of staying up.

If Sandford do get those five points then it will be North Devon who will go down with Torquay.

Budleigh Salterton saw their last hope of returning to the top flight ended as they went down by a margin of four wickets at Abbotskerswell.

Like Exmouth, the Ottermouth men end the league season with a home game on Saturday when they entertain Bradninch.

Clyst St George won for the 14th time in 17 D Division East games.

The Bohea Field men were emphatic 238 run winners at Honiton with their 17-year-old batsman Andrew Donovan scoring a magnificent unbeaten 203.

On Saturday Clyst St George will end their title winning campaign at home to Clyst Hydon.
