Home victory in the main game

Visitors win the support match

CLYST St George brought a strong contingent of spectators for their 2nd XI's visit to Newton Poppleford to face Sidmouth 3rd XI, outnumbering the home support five to one. That is to say Clyst had five supporters and Sidmouth one.
However, the home side had numerical advantage on the field of play and their 11 prevailed over the visiting 10 in a 153-run victory after posting 311.
There were plenty of runs at the top of the order, Thomas Moore and Ben Sapiecha putting on 104 for the first wicket at almost 10 an over as the ball sped across the parched outfield to the boundary. Moore was bowled for 60 but a second wicket stand of 61 between Sapiecha and Saj Patidar kept Sidmouth in the ascendancy.
Will Furniss, running in from the boundary, dived forward to hold the first chance offered by Sapiecha when he had reached 74. Patidar was caught behind shortly after for 27, but David Watkins soon picked up the rate and was the seventh and last man out to the final ball of the 40 overs after reaching 82. Paul Laverick bowled him to be Clyst's most successful bowler with 3-58, also accounting for Wesley Holmes and Graham Munday who chipped in with 19 each.
A nagging injury forced Toby Seldon out of the attack after one over and his replacement, Tim Drake, extracting what little movement there was on a hard pitch, saw Graham Munday and John Goodwin drop chances in his first over.
The pair atoned by holding far more difficult chances shortly after, but off Holmes who sent down eight overs for 21 and three wickets. Drake took 2-21 as Clyst stuttered to 31-4, 58-5 and 68-6. Resistance came from the middle and late order, notably Laverick who made 42.
Skipper Patidar used eight bowlers and his changes often brought a wicket, Sapiecha, Thomas Burhop, Munday and Moore all accounting for a victim. Clyst were all out with five overs of the match remaining.
This was the first match that Sidmouth had the pleasure of using the excellent new kitchen facilities at the pavilion and Gill Hodge's tea, delivered from the Fortfield, did the surroundings justice. The teams were indebted to manager Rob Fowler for bringing and serving the refreshments and to umpire Ian French who officiated at both bowling ends.
Sidmouth's quest for promotion from F Division East sees them travelling to Braunton for their next game.
