Yarcombe and Stockland were five wicket winners at home to Kentisbeare.

Richard Reed claimed 5-25 and Darren Copp took 3-19 as the Kent’s were bowled out for 111.

John Rich then struck 32 ands Simon Hovell was not out 29 when a five wicket win was sealed.

Yarcombe skipper James Mitchum said: “It was a very comprehensive win for us. We did almost everything right on the day. What was most pleasing was that we were faced with a similar target the previous week and had made a mess of it, so to get it right this week was really good. I think we could do well this season and am confident we shall, if we get good availability.”

On Saturday Mitchum leads the side to Babbacombe and says: “I would like to think we can take a strong side to South Devon. That’s something we did not do last season and if we are to do well this term then a decent result at Babbacombe is probably necessary.”
