Seaton’s D Division promotion hopes were hit by a three wicket home defeat at the hands of Honiton.

Batting first in glorious conditions Seaton were in big trouble at 19-4 before Ryan Walker played a superb innings going on to hit 102, getting support from Mike Wheeler and skipper Ben Morgan, both hitting 26, as the innings closed on 222.

Honiton eventually got home with three wickets and a couple of overs to spare.

The defeat, a fourth of the season, coupled with Shaldons’ home success over basement side Feniton sees Morgan’s men slip out of the top two with the South Devon coast side now a point better off and Ashburton have closed to within five points in fourth spot.

On Saturday’s Morgan and his side travel to third bottom Halberton and Sampford Peverell.

Winning in Mid Devon is a must for, if leaders Clyst Hydon win a twelfth game in as many outings at Shaldon, Seaton will be back into a top two berth come stumps on Saturday evening.
