Seaton climbed four places in the D Division table after an emphatic seven wicket success at basement dwellers Cockington.

Edward Hunt was the star of the show with 108 as he and Stephen Pritchard (48) put on 150 for the second wicket.

A score of 204-3 meant maximum batting points were secured for the first time this term and then the bowlers went to work.

Ben Copp picked up three wickets and there were braces for Phil Collins, Joe Berry and skipper Ben Morgan as the South Devon side were bowled out for 110.

A delighted Morgan said: “That was a very thorough performance. At last we got runs from the batsmen and then we bowled and fielded exceptionally well to bag an important win which will do plenty of good to our overall confidence.”

Next up is the biggest test of them all as Seaton become the latest team to try and stop the Yelverton express.

The table topping side have won all four games so far this season dropping just four points along the way.

They are the visitors to Court Lane on Saturday. Morgan says: “If we apply ourselves as we did at Cockington and all departments deliver then we will be a match for them.”
