Tipton St John have had no fewer than 13 games called off this season, six because of the weather and six where opposition have not been able to raise a side to complete a friendly fixture, writes Phil Wright.

Ottery Under 13s completed a clean sweep of their undefeated season when they landed the County Sports Trophy to add to their Bradleys East Devon Youth League title win.

After having a dozen fixtures cancelled this season for varying reasons, there was no way a soggy wicket, long damp outfield grass further and rain in the offing would put off the Tipton players from going ahead with their home meeting with Worcestershire-based touring side Kay’s, writes Phil Wright.

Honiton CC have made a formal presentation to their 2017 main shirt sponsors.

Ottery St Mary went down by seven wickets to visiting Filleigh in their final home game of the Tolchards Drinks Devon League B Division season.

Ottery St Mary Under-13s powered their way into the final of the County Sports Trophy with a 151 run win over Budleigh Salterton in a one-sided semi-final played at Ottermouth, Budleigh.

With a couple regulars missing through work commitments and other matters, Honiton’s first string made the long trek up the North Devon link road looking to put a dent in Barnstaple and Piltons D Division East title hopes.

Three wickets each for Joel Seward and Tim Mitchell steered Seaton to an 18-run win over Cullompton in a pulsating Corinthian Cup final, writes Conrad Sutcliffe.

Honiton 2nds kept up their chase of league divisional honours after a terrific win at home to Barnstaple and Pilton 2nds.

Honiton 2nds won a close encounter at Upottery, beating the home side by a a margin of just five runs to put the outcome of the 2nd XI D Division East title in some doubt.

Seaton still have a little work to do to ensure they are still in the third tier of the Tolchards League when the 2018 season is with us after they slipped to a six wicket defeat at a Barton side that had started the day sitting second bottom, 30 points and two placed below them in the B Division table.

Honiton saw their lingering hopes of Tolchards League D Division East top three finish extinguished as they went down to a 14-run defeat in a low scoring Mountbatten Park meeting with Upottery.

Seaton will travel to Barton on Saturday (August 19) knowing that a win in South Devon will leave them confirming their status as a third tier team again in 2018.

Whimple are now the team sitting second to C Division East champions-in-waiting Cullompton.

Tipton St John recorded an emphatic 143-run win over visiting Met Office, writes Phil Wright.
