Tipton St John endure mixed fortunes with Cornish success and Devon defeat

07:33 31 August 2014

Tipton had mixed results in their weekend games beating Cornish side Seaview Old Boys by nine runs on Saturday, but losing to Tedburn St Mary by nine wickets on Sunday, writes Phil Wright.

The highlight of Saturday’s game was the 159 run opening partnership between Phil’s Tolley and Essex. The visitors from Falmouth did not take a wicket until Tolley was out, trapped leg before for 73 in the 33rd over. After waiting for two hours for a bat Matt Williamson was out fifth ball for nought!

Phil Essex was also adjudged leg before wicket for his highest Tipton score of 67 allowing Tipton to close on 178-4.

The visitors made a good attempt to chase down the total, but were hampered by regularly losing wickets. Ollie Coates, David O’Higgins and Phil Tolley each took two wickets and Kevin McMeeking and Jem Gillham contributed with run outs.

Twenty-seven runs were needed off the final four overs, but Tipton took the remaining three wickets for a close win.

On Sunday, forecasted rain reduced the game to 35 overs per side at Tedburn. Tipton struggled to set a challenging despite 56 from 47 balls by Steve Shaw and 33 from Dave Jessop.

Their total of 145-8 was not enough as despite some good fielding, the Tedburn openers took the score to 79 before Phil Wright bowled Coren to claim the only wicket to fall. Willoughby remained 76 not out as Tedburn scored the runs required with over five overs to spare.
