The fourth cricket match in memory of Matt Stiling will take place on the Fortfield ground on Sunday, August 30.
Once again, the Marine and Mermaid pubs will be contesting, with the Mermaid leading 2-1. The Marine will be looking to avenge the sound beating the Mermaid boys dished out in the pub league.
Matt was a regular for the Mermaid, but would call his local the Marine.
On the same day, the first match of the tri-tournament - also formed in Matt's memory - will take place between Sidmouth's rugby and football teams.
