Archant

The weather hit the penultimate match day of the first half of the Francis Clark Devon League cricket season with almost every game across the county hit by rail at some stage.

Honiton took the honours for their 72-ru win over Halberton and Sampford Peverell with major contributions from both the past and present skippers! The Mountbatten Park side climbed off the foot of the D Division table with the victory – their second in succession since the appointment of Holmes as skipper.

Yarcombe and Stockland bagged a third win of the E Division season to climb out of the bottom two

Axminster returned to winning ways with a rain affected victory at Chagford and they stay second in the C Division behind run way leaders Bideford.

At the other end of the spectrum, Feniton have slumped to bottom spot of the D Division after defeat in the derby meeting with Seaton.

Feniton skipper Graham Tucker was run out on 49 and then saw his side have Seaton 97-7 before the visitors recovered to claim a three wicket win on 154-7 thanks to an unbeaten 49 fro Alex Hunt.

Uplyme and Lyme Regis picked up 17 points with a handsome win over Ashburton.

Whimple were beaten by E Division table toppers Babbacombe and whilst Upottery were denied action by a soggy surface at Bridestowe.
