CLYST Hydon II fell well short against Sidmouth and were unable to do their first team colleagues a favour in the race to qualify from the East Devon Indoor Cricket League for the county finals, writes John Goodwin.
It was thanks to Matt Cooke, who made 52, that Sidmouth were able to set any sort of challenging total - they made 104, lasting only 10.2 overs.
Clyst lasted one ball fewer as they were dismissed for 59, Nick Mansfield and Charlie Miles both taking 2-12. Josh Bess, one of the stars of Devon’s Minor Counties championship win in the summer, found the indoor game difficult to come to terms with – he made five when batting and then sent down one over littered with wides and no-balls for 13.
?Clyst’s first team won by 43 runs against Clyst St George, but crucially did not take all their opposition’s wickets.
The bulk of Clyst Hydon’s 135 all out came from the consistently prolific Ian Sutton, with 54, and Graham Trude, with 26.
