Seaton 2nds recorded one of the largest winning margins of recent times for a Court Lane eleven when they crushed Axminster II by a whopping 304 runs!

Batting first, Seaton powered their way to 335-7 led there by young Sam Goodier who hit an unbeaten 129.

The 15-year-old notched up his maiden Tolchards Devon League century and everyone at the club was delighted for him.

First eleven skipper Ben Morgan said: “Massive congratulations to Sam, he is a superb young cricketer and I am positive that he will have a bright future in the game as an all-rounder. He is keen and has been working really hard at training on every aspect of his game and has got his rewards, this century is the first of many for sure.”

Skipper Ian Hunt was another to pass jug buying totals with his knock of 61 as bat dominated ball for the entire first half of the contest.

Axminster did not find batting as comfortable as they were hustled out for just 31 with Ollie Aplin claiming 3-26 and Kersley Sutton taking 2-24.

A tougher test awaits Seaton II this coming Saturday as they take on a Bradninch side that has won two of there first three matches this term.
