Honiton ended any fears of a nervous last day of the season when they secured their D Division status with a two-wicket win over relegation threatened Halberton and Sampford Peverell.

Kev Kelly provided the individual all-round performance of the game with a four wicket haul as the Mid Devon side were bowled out for 215 and the Kelly struck 34 as Honiton edged home.

Kelly was supported by brother Ian in the bowling attack, the latter taking 2-31.

The successful run chase was led by Pete Matravers with a superb unbeaten 71 whilst Kev Thompson (38) and Kieran Conway (20) chipped in to see Honiton safely home.

Honiton seconds completed their home programme in what has been a very difficult C Division season, losing their 15th game in 16 outings, beaten by 136-runs by Exeter III.

They complete their season on Saturday at Bideford II.
