Honiton sit third in the D Division after a winning draw with visiting Plymouth Civil Service and Roborough.

The visitors finished on 220-6 with Honiton skipper Kev Kelly the most successful of his bowlers with 3-17.

Kelly said: “The track was simply too good to bowl a side out on as nearly 500 runs for ten wickets indicates. We batted very well, but it was too much of an ask to get another competent batting outfit out on that track.”

On Saturday Kelly takes his side to early season whipping boys Cockington who have been bowled out in all four of their games so far for an accumulative total of 290 runs!
