Uplyme were six-run winners after a thrilling derby meeting with Seaton.

After heavy overnight rain Uplyme were asked to bat on a drying wicket and opening bowlers Ben Libby and Ben Morgan set about by making the most of the conditions. They tore through the Uplyme top order and reduced them to 27 for 5 within the first ten overs! Skipper Morgan finished with three wickets for a miserly eight runs from his allotted overs.

It was left to Mark Batey and Alfie Bellworthy to try to rebuild the innings and they were making good progress until with the score on 45 they both fell, Batey bowled by Mitchell and Bellworthy well caught by Bray off the bowling of Tucker. Uplyme continued to struggle and only a rearguard partnership between Paddy Barraclough (35no) and Rhys Davies (7) that yielded 43 runs enabled the home side to reach 128 including 44 extras and gather two batting points.

At 30 without loss Seaton were making steady progress until captain Steve Batey struck and removed both openers Ed and Alex Hunt in short succession. Whilst former Uplyme batsman Mark Bray was at the crease Seaton looked as though they would reach their target, but when he was dismissed, caught by Harvey Brimicombe off the bowling of Rhys Davies for a well made 43 the Seaton innings disintegrated.

Davies took three more wickets and Batey returned to clean up the lower order to also finish with a four wicket haul as the Seaton innings closed on 122 just 6 short of their total. In an excellent low scoring game skipper Morgan was left regretting the extras his side conceded in the field!
