With the scheduled weekend opposition for both Tipton St John and Newton Poppleford crying off, the two teams hastily arranged a fixture to replace the meeting between the sides that had been washed out the weekend before, writes Phil Wright.

Newton Poppleford won the toss and two batsmen ensured it was to be a busy afternoon for the Tipton fielders. Tom Moore, batting in the number three berth, blitzed his way to a knock of 61 from just 31 balls before the Tipton bowlers battled back into the contest claiming five wickets for just 22 runs.

However, this only brought Lee Adey to the crease and he blasted 90 off just 40 balls before being the last man out with the score on 225 when he was bowled by David Thayre.

The most successful bowler was David O’Higgins, although the late assault by Adey damaged his 3-58 figures.

David Jessop with 2-19 was the most economic whilst Chris Tubbs took three catches behind the stumps.

In reply, Tipton started well and reached 48 before the first wicket fell when Jessop was caught by Richard Coombs off Andrew Marsh for 16.

The key wicket of Phil Tolley went to Luke Raistrick when he was caught behind by Kenny Clay for 30. Thereafter, only Roger Hunt with 26 put up any sort of resistance.

The damage was done by Alex Raistrick with three wickets and a brace of catches – a feat almost matched by his brother Luke, who claimed two wickets and held a catch. The tail was mopped up by the Adey family as Chloe bowled Al Mathews for 15 before Lee took 3-10 to leave Tipton 123 all out, enabling the visitors to take the trophy back down the Otter.
