Seaton slump to disappointing defeat
PUBLISHED: 13:06 22 May 2012
Seaton, without the duo of John Waterhouse and Matt Hancock were thumped by ten wickets at Court Lane by Halberton and Sampford Peverell.
What proved to be a vital toss did not go the way of Seaton skipper Ben Morgan who then saw his team slide to 108 all out. Only Mark Bray with 42, made a significant contribution with the best of the rest being 14 from Mike Wheeler.
The Mid Devon men then sailed to a comprehensive victory with the runs scored by their opening batsmen.
Two defeats in three games has seen Seaton slip to third bottom in the fledgling D Division table.
Morgan said: “It was a bad toss to lose that’s for sure. However, we batted really poorly. There was a general lack of application down the order with only Mike (Bray) doing what was required which was head down and look to bat out our overs. It’s very disappointing that we have now lost two of our first three and each time it’s been down to the failure of our collective batting.”
On Saturday Seaton travel to the bottom side Cockington who have lost all three of their opening games being bowled out each time.
John Waterhouse (working at the Devon County Show) and Matt Hancock (footballing commitments), who both missed the Halberton defeat, return for the trip to Cockington.
