Ottery St Mary will have better days than their three senior XIs endured on the opening day of the new Tolchards Devon League cricket season.

All three senior teams went down in their respective matches.

The 1st XI were beaten at home in their B Division meeting with Barton, going down by five wickets.

Billy Reed (31) and Matt Reed (27) were the only home batters to make an impression in what was a disappointing home total of 122.

Joe Birch and Will Harrison each bagged a brace of wickets, but Barton eased to victory with room to spare.
