Match day ten of the Francis Clark Devon League proved to be a profitable one for a number of East Devon sides, writes Steve Birley.

Feniton were the big movers as they bagged just a second win of the season to ease their D Division woes after an 86-run win at Whitchurch. Mark Kingdom and Jon Pyle dug them out of a sticky patch with a three figure seventh wicket stand before the evergreen Francis Plyle took the bowling honours!

In the same section Seaton also enjoyed a big win as they took a maximum 22 points from a seven wicket success at home to basement dwellers Clyst St George.

Uplyme are the ‘best of the rest’ in the D Division behind the runaway top two after they took the honours in the East Devon derby at home to Honiton.

Success also for Kilmington who climbed into a top two berth in the E Division after a four wicket home win over Cullompton.

It was not such a good day for Whimple as they fell to a fourth E Division defeat when beaten by seven wickets at home by struggling Kingskerswell.

In the F Division Upottery had to sit out the match day as they were the odd team out (one team misses a game each week in this section), and they return to action this Saturday at home to Woodbury.
