Archant

Uplyme and Lyme Regis II were six wicket winners at home to Whimple II.

Grant Northover (66) and skipper Barry Wright (55) led Whimple to 198.

The bulk of the wicket taking was done by teenagers Ollie Lee and Reece Davies. Fourteen-year-old Lee claimed 3-17 whilst 13-year-old Davies took 3-23.

Steve Batey, stepping in for the un-well Brian Rattenbury, led the successful run chase with an unbeaten 76.

Stand-in skipper Dave Norman (49) and Michael Holding (44no) were the other run scorers.

Three of the four home wickets to fall were ducks!
