Seaton stay second in the D Division after a three wicket success at Feniton.

Joe Berry (3-41), Alex Hunt (2-31) and Mike Wheeler (2-34) combined to bowl the Acland Park side out for 153.

With seven wickets down and just 97 on the board the run chase looked in troubled waters.

However, Phil Collins joined Alex Hunt at the wicket and the pair first steadied the reply and then saw their side home. Hunt finished one run shy of a half century whilst Collins was unbeaten on 24.

Seaton skipper Ben Morgan said: “Once again we dropped catches. In all it was six this week, one more than seven days before. That’s too many and, whilst I’ll accept some of them would have been stunning takes, we have now put down at least five soft catches in the past two games and that’s simply not good enough. It’s still a case that we are getting over then line in matches because two or three are delivering. The day we all fire together we will turn someone over good and proper!”

Morgan continued: “To be sitting second with one to go before the halfway point of the season is very much a case of a job well done, so far. However, these dropped catches and the fact that many of us could produce more I think the half-term report would read like this; ‘good work in progress but all players need to sharpen up acts.”

On Saturday Seaton entertain Countess Wear who have lost five of their eight so far.

Morgan says: “We look to win every game we play. I am confident about the teams collective ability, just concerned that not enough of deliver on the same day. Hopefully that will not be the case against Countess Wear.”

John Waterhouse and Chris Aplin who both missed the derby win over Feniton should be available for Saturday’s game.
