Caddy strikes superb century but it isn’t in a winning cause.

Adam Caddy struck 104 as Uplyme and Lyme Regis got a winning draw from their visit to Woodbury.

The visitors declared on 176-9 with Kevin Miller taking 4-40 for the Woods who took the losing draw and so ended a sequence of three straight defeats from the opening game.

Woodbury went mighty close to claiming victory, finishing on 175-8, led there by Mark Smale (62), Tim Greenslade (31) and skipper James Taylor (24).

Uplyme skipper Ashley Caddy said: “I declared to give the bowlers an extra couple of overs to see if we could force the win but their openers batted well, albeit with a sprinkling of lady luck as we did drop a number of catches. No complaints from me, we did our best and were just a little short at the close.”

Uplyme and Lyme Regis II were seven wicket winners in a low scoring affair with visiting Axminster who they bundled out for a meagre 38. Paddy Barraclough took 4-10 from six overs and Mike Holding claimed 3-24 whilst James Dunford was thrown the ball by acting skipper Eddie Clarke and promptly claimed three wickets for no runs from just five deliveries!

Dunford then hit an unbeaten 20 as the weather set in and three wickets were taken in the short run chase that sealed a first win of the campaign for Uplyme and Lyme Regis II.
