Whimple picked up their first win of the season with a seven wicket triumph at bottom side Cockington.

Phil Hope took 4-20 in 13 splendid overs and Luke Whitton bagged a brace in a Cockington total of 109.

Mike Searle then struck an unbeaten 48 and there was a knock of 47 from Dave Chamberlain as Whimple got home with seven wickets and plenty of overs to spare.

Whimple skipper Ben Silk said: “Hopefully this victory will kick-start our season. It’s a been a while coming, but the weather has played a big part in our season.”

Whimple are set for only their second home game of the season – weather permitting – on Saturday with the visit of Seaton.

Whimple 2nds were beaten by seven wickets by Upottery. John Bardot top scored with 25 in the Whimple 165-8, passed in some comfort by the visitors.
