Broad so bright as Axminster III go down to heavy Halberton defeat

PUBLISHED: 14:58 16 May 2012

Axminster III were heavily beaten by a strong visiting Halberton and Sampford Peverell side.

The Mid Devon team batted first and closed on 204-7 thanks mainly to an unbeaten century from Alan Broomfield.

Emily Broad was then pick of the home bowlers with 3-39.

She also contributed the second highest individual offering in the reply.

Sadly that was just four, topped only by an unbeaten six from Zac Harwood as the Cloakham Lawn side were skittled out for 33.

On Saturday Axminster III travel to Thorverton III.
