Yarcombe and Stockland claimed only their third victory of the E Division season as they thrashed visiting basement side Topsham St James by a whopping 152 runs.

Jon Rich top scored with 70 and Rex Helston hit 53 as the villagers were bowled out for 230.

That was far too many for the Tops to attack and they were bundled out for 78 with R Reed taking five wickets for just one run and Ben Fuzzard also claimed a fivefer, finishing with figures of 5-32.

The win lifts Yarcombe out of the bottom two, eight points clear of second bottom Upottery and now just 20 points short of fourth in the table Bridestowe.

On Saturday Yarcombe reach halfway in their season with an East Devon derby at Kilmington.
