Yarcombe have been harder hit than most this soggy season.

The cancellation of their home game with Exeter Civil Service means that they have now not played a minute of cricket for three successive mid-summer Saturday’s!

The last time that James Mitchum’s side saw action was Saturday, June 23 when they won by 64 runs at Chardstock.

After eleven weeks of the Francis Clark Devon league campaign Yarcombe have played just two home games and they have not enjoyed home comforts since a June 9 meeting with Chelston that saw them bowled out on a damp wicket for 63 to slip to a seven wicket defeat.

Their only other home game was the week before and a 48 run home triumph over Woodbury

They have just four more home matches left this term.

They host Culmstock on Saturday week (July 28), the entertain Newton St Cyres, Kingskerswell and Chardstock on the final three Saturday’s of the season.

This Saturday’s trip to Chelston is their penultimate away game of the season.
