Newton Poppleford and Clyst Hydon share the early leadership in the Sidmouth Leisure Centre Indoor Cricket League.

Newton Poppleford followed up their opening game win over Clyst Hydon by defeating Tipton in a low-scoring affair.

Batting first, Tipton were restricted to a total of just 58, which was passed in some comfort by the Popples.

Clyst Hydon restricted Clyst St George to a total of 104 and then breezed home to register a second successive win and they, like Newton Poppelford, have six points, but in their case from one game more.

The third and final game played on match day three saw another low scoring affair with Upottery restricted to 79, a score passed in a degree of comfort by Sidmouth.

Each one of the six competing teams in the league this time round have now played at least two games and just one of the six has yet to win; that is Tipton, who have lost all three of their matches so far.

There are four games scheduled for matchday four, which takes place this Sunday (November 2).
