Perry fizz as Axminster II title charge is held up

PUBLISHED: 17:39 27 August 2013 | UPDATED: 17:39 27 August 2013

Axminster II were edged out by a single wicket at Kentisbeare II and that means the battle to win the 2nd XI D Division East title goes to the final day.

Sean Perry top scored with 71 in an Axminster total of 232-8 and then he claimed 3-28 as the Mid Devon side got home with their last pair at the wicket!

The defeat coupled with a Seaton II success over Feniton II means Axminster head into Saturday’s final game of the season against third in the table Uplyme and Lyme Regis II needing to win and bank three more points than Seaton II do if they win their game with fourth paved Countess Wear II.
