Ottery St Mary travel to Ipplepen on match day two of the new Tolchards Devon Cricket League and captain Will Harrison is looking for more runs from his team, writes Conrad Sutcliffe.

On match day one, Barton chased down 123 to win at Strawberry Lane after a struggle first time out to win a low-scoring game by five wickets.

Harrison felt 122 all out in 32 of the 45 overs available was a total that didn’t give the team a fighting chance in a ‘funny’ game.

“Two good bowling sides made a good batting track look bad, which was the funny think about the game,” said Harrison.

“We didn’t score enough and need to show more application with the bat in future.”
