Whimple thumped by Ipplepen - again!
Whimple will be glad they won’t be facing Ipplepen in a hurry.
The D Division champions elect dished out a second heavy defeat of the season on Jono Burdens men.
When the pair met at Whimple earlier in the campaign Whimple were rolled over for 65 to lose by 156 runs. This time they managed double that with a total of 136 but, batting first, that was never going to trouble Ipplepen who hurried to a nine wicket win.
Chris Palfrey hit 50 and Will Cleal struck 25 in the Whimple batting effort, Dave Chamberlain took the one home wicket to fall.
This weekend Whimple entertain Yelverton.
