Ashley Caddy led by example, striking his side’s top score of 80 as Uplyme and Lyme Regis closed on 233-6 at home to Babbacombe.

Steve Batey (56) and an unbeaten half century from Adam Caddy aided the hosts to their final score.

Batey then claimed a brace of wickets as the South Devon side shut up shop and ended on 167-6.

Skipper Caddy said: “It was not very inspiring stuff. They clearly were not going to chase the target and we were unable to winkle them out.”

On Saturday Caddy’s team entertain Tiverton and Bickleigh.
