Otters still can’t end poor run but retain grip on promotin place
Ottery St Mary continue to seemingly do their best to avoid promotion – it is now one win in eight after they were beaten by six wickets at Plymouth Civil Service and Roborough.
The Otters have only beaten E Division bound Bridestowe since a June 18, 52 run win, at Ipplepen – that remains the only defeat to date this term for the newly crowned D Division champions.
However, the Otters do still have a 15 point cushion over third placed Feniton.
Batting first at the Buckfastleigh home of the hosts, the Otters were bundled out for 118, passed with relative ease for the loss of just four wickets.
Next up is Saturday’s visit of Ipplepen and that is followed by a home meeting with Whimple and a last day visit to Whitchurch.
