Ottery St Mary went out of the Corinthian Cup when beaten by eight wickets in a quarter-final tie at Cullompton.

Batting first, the Otters were given a solid start by openers Rob Crabb (40 from 29 balls with seven fours and one six) and Alex Clements (31 from 26 balls with four fours and one six).

However, apart from 24 extras the total was only boosted by one other double figure score, that a knock of 36 from number five batsman Jack Malden who faced just 24 balls hitting two fours and three sixes.

Ottery ended on 152-9 after their 20 overs. The hosts had 38 on the board in their reply when Will Harrison had the Cully skipper James Blackmore caught by George Southall-Brown, but there was to be only one further success for the Otters with Tom Jeacock being behind a run out.

Cully eased home, winning with three–and-a-half overs to spare with just the two wickets down.

Wicket taker Will Harrison ended with figures of 1-31 from two overs, but the most economical figures were from young Tom Jeacock who sent down four excellent overs for just 18 runs.
