Ottery St Mary travel to South Devon tomorrow (Saturday) as they bid to continue their push for Tolchards Devon League B Division glory, writes Stephen Birley.
The Otters were washed out in their match at Ivybridge on Saturday with the game tantalisingly poised.
The Bridgers had been bowled out for just 130 with the Otters four wickets down and needing 99 more runs to win.
South Devon have yet to win a game this season having lost all five that they have started so far including last Saturday’s 54-run defeat against Plymstock.
Ottery go into the game sitting fourth in the table, 20 points behind new leaders Plymstock. Ivybridge, who are 11 points better off than Ottery, sit in the other promotion berth. The Otters 2nd XI are moving towards a place in the top flight of Devon League cricket as they currently sit third in the 2nd XI A Division.
