Ottery St Mary Under-13s continued their magnificent season with a sixth successive win – a 19-run victory in a Bradleys East Devon Youth League meeting at Topsham St James.

Ottery skipper Max Mayor won the toss and decided to bat first.

The Otters total of 133-2 from their 20 overs was built on fantastic unbeaten knocks by openers Lawrence Walker and Ben Lawler who both retired after making 40.

Ollie Brealy contributed 16, James Tyler hit nine and Sachin Coppell was unbeaten on four at the end of the innings.

In the field, Ottery maintained control as Topsham soon fell behind the required rate.

Lawrence Walker added to his batting exploits with a three wicket haul and Ollie Glanville also rattled the stumps with a lovely delivery.
