Uplyme and Lyme Regis claimed a tenth successive victory of the season to make it very interesting ion the final day of the E Division season with Uplyme one of three teams who could be promoted.

The E Division title race is going to the final day with three teams within five points of each other. Uplyme and Lyme Regis, who claimed their tenth successive win on the penultimate matchday of the season, are very much part of the promotion picture.

Ashley Caddy’s men go into their final game at Kilmington sitting a single point behind second placed Honiton and just five behind leaders Filleigh.

Adam Caddy took 4-20 and James Toates picked up 3-15 as visitors Kentisbeare were bowled out for 93.

Skipper Ashley Caddy then took charge hitting an unbeaten 42 to lead his side to a comfortable eight wicket win.

Caddy said: “It’s going to be mighty close with our game at Kilmington and Honiton travelling to Babbacombe. It could well be that weather plays its part too so we’ll just have to be focused on the job in hand. I do feel that had we not been hit with the cancellations (Uplyme have been hit three times by the weather whilst no one else in the section has lost any more than one game to the elements), we have this term we’d already been crowned the top side. That said we have taken our campaign to the final day and you can’t ask for more than that as a skipper.”
