Axminster suffered a 22-run defeat in their E Division game up at Bideford, Littleham and Westward Ho!

The home side batted first and closed on 284-5 with Bradley Conway (2-56) the pick of the Axemen bowlers.

Conway then led what was an impressive run chase, but one that ultimately came up just short. Conway top scored with 74 and he was one of three Axemen to register half centuries with the other two being Dave Field, with 68 and Dylan Hurst, with 57, as Axminster’s reply came to a halt on 262-5.

Next Saturday (June 9) Axminster reach the one-third stage of their campaign when they stage an East Devon derby with Honiton providing the opposition.
