Yarcombe remain very much in the F Division promotion frame after a 53 run win at Chelston.

Simon Durrant (38) and Billy Reed (35) together with Matt Barnacle (20) led Yarcombe to their all out total of 151.

Rex Helston claimed 4-9 from seven excellent overs and skipper James Mitchum picked up 3-15 as the South Devon side were bowled out for 98.

Skipper James Mitchum said: “We travelled knowing this was a big game and one we needed to win if we were to mount a real challenge. If we can approach our last six as we have played this one then I am sure we will be there or thereabouts. Promotion is defiantly our target this season.”

On Saturday Mitchum’s men host Culmstock.
