Fowler power gets 3rdXI home

Runs and wickets for youngster

What should have been a comfortable run chase turned into a nail biter for Sidmouth 3rd XI who were grateful to eighth wicket pair Jordan Fowler and Thomas Burhop to get them over the line against hosts Clyst St George 2nd XI.
Clyst, after losing Richard Coe in the first over of the day sent down by Lee Clayden, recovered to 102-3 before collapsing to 135 all out in the face of off spin bowling from Tim Chapman and Fowler. The duo shared four wickets in the space of 10 balls as Clyst stumbled from 121-5 to 122-9.
Chapman took 4-34 and Fowler 3-23 for the stand-out performances in a consistent bowling effort. Opening seamers Clayden and George House kept the early batsmen on their toes, the latter proving the day's most economic, though wicketless, bowler.
Dan Kendall, with 46, and Dave Takle, 24, gave Clyst the basis for a competitive score up until the drinks break. But, as is often the case, the orange cordial contained a wicket-taking additive.
Second change bowler Wesley Holmes, who pouched a good catch at third man to give Clayden his second wicket, induced an edge behind to remove Kendall and the collapse began.
Sidmouth conceded 10 wides, which would have been 11 if umpire Iain French had his way. He was already calling "wide" and stretching his arms out when Chapman's spinning finger malfunctioned and the ball headed way down the leg side. Undeterred by French's eagerness to give the wide, the batsman stepped to the ball and struck it for runs behind square to erase the extra.
One dropped chance was the only blot on a sound fielding performance by the visitors. The same solidity deserted Sidmouth when they came to bat after a bountiful tea that the two sides were unable to demolish.
Jash Patidar fluently moved to 33 but rapidly lost three partners. When, in Fowler, he found someone with stickability, he perished to Paul Laverick's spin and the middle order melted away. Comedy dismissal of the day belonged to Clayden who decided to let a delivery from George O'Dwyer pass to the wicketkeeper. His middle and off stump got in the way of this and Sidmouth were 90-8.
Fowler regularly took boundaries off anything wayward and with Burhop playing a supporting role with some adventurous running they got Sidmouth to victory with 10 overs to spare. With 49, Fowler made his top Devon League score and was worth a half century. Burhop's 13 was just as valuable given the predicament the Sidmouth innings was in.
Two games into the season the side is well placed in F Division East, having dropped only one point. Thanks are due to Rob Fowler, who had to suppress his usual words of encouragement to the side in order to assume umpiring duties at the other end to Iain French.
