SEATON won the Corinthian Cup for the first time in their history whe they defeated Dartington and Totnes by 16 runs at Ivybridge on Sunday, writes Stephen Birley.

John Waterhouse was the star of the show with the bat as he top scored with 55 in a Seaton total of 134-5 from their 16 eight-ball overs. Skipper Ben Morgan chipped in with 28, adding 73 for the fourth wicket with Waterhouse and the late runs came from Matt Hancock and Phil Collins.

The South Devon side made a flying start and looked in cruise control, on 51-2. However Morgan struck to remove the dangerous Loots aided by a catch by wicketkeeper Nick Beedle and Chris Aplin bagged the equally imortant wicket of Stephenson.

Natahn Maddock finisehd thiongs off with 3-10 as Dartington and Totnes were bowled out for 118.

Morgan’s four eight ball overs saw him return impressive figures of 1-19 and Aplin finished with 2-26 from his three overs.

A delighted Morgan said: “It was a fabulous performance with everybody chipping in. John (Waterhouse) batted so well, and then we bowled tight lines and fielded really well. It was the perfect day and completed a wonderful weekend with our league success 24-hours before.”
