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!
