SIDMOUTH, playing without three of their big guns, failed to reach the Ivor Dewdney Pasties Devon Twenty 20 Cup final at Exmouth, writes John Goodwin.

Plymouth bowled them out for 111 in the first semi final of the day and then had the best part of five overs spare when they won by eight wickets.

Sidmouth never recovered from being 20-3 with Josh and Luke Bess and Sam Anderson out cheaply. Anthony Griffiths embarked on one of several repair jobs he has had to do this season but on this occasion could not find the right tools. Zach Bess provided the mainstay of the innings with 43 but was unable to fashion any meaningful partnerships, although Charlie Miles and Greg Chaplin, among the replacements for Liam Lewis, Matt Cooke and Nick Gingell, briefly flourished.

Plymouth’s Henry Bennett twice took wickets in consecutive balls and finished with 5-22.

Plymouth encountered few problems with the Sidmouth attack and the boundary was regularly traversed at ground level and aerially. James Toms finished 55 not out.

Plymouth went on to lose the final against Bovey Tracey, who made 136-7, by nine runs. They got close after being 35-7 at one stage.

Sidmouth Cricket Club is running two days of training ‘camp’ on Wednesday, August 15, and Thursday, August 16, from 2-5pm on each day, for all young players up to the under 13 age group.

There is no need to pre-book a place, just turn up for either one day or both. The cost is £2 for members and £7 for non-members per day.

The camps are being led by Matthew Cooke, the County’s Cricket Development Officer, and a level-three coach. He will be supported by other level-two coaches and the aim of the camp will be to improve all cricket skills in a fun environment.
