It is now just one win in seven for Ottery St Mary after they were forced to settle for a losing draw at home to Feniton.

The visitors batted first and closed on 228-9 with Rob Johns, Mark Woodman and young Sam Loud, each bagging a brace of wickets.

The reply was led by Sam Tennent with a sparkling 69, skipper Jody Clements (32), Ed Fowler (27) and Rob Johns (21no); all made contributions as the Otters closed on 194-7.

Ottery now hold a thirty point lead in second place with four to play and they begin their run-in with Saturday’s trip to Plymouth Civil Service and Roborough after which they host Ipplepen and Whimple and then complete their campaign with a last day visit to Whitchurch.

Ottery II were four wicket winners in a low scoring affair at Cornwood III where they bowled the hosts out for 91 and then won the game with four wickets in hand.

On Saturday the Otters, who lead the table by five points from Ipplepen II; will have promotion to the B Division confirmed if they beat visiting Plymouth Civil Service and Roborough II.
