Seaton 2nds went down by six wickets at home to Shobrooke Park.

Batting first, Seaton suffered a bad start with both openers, Ollie Pinnock and Niall Waterhouse, back in the pavilion with just eight runs on the Court Lane score board.

Soon after both David Turner and Mike Hancock joined them, leaving Seaton a troubled 27-4. Will Mudd, in a at three, was still there though and he and Ollie Aplin added 38 before Aplin fell for 16 with the score then 65-5.

Mudd was not to be removed and he remained at the crease until the close, finishing unbeaten on 62 having batted for 43 overs. Aplin’s 16 was the second best score and there was a cameo of 15 from number nine bat Andrew Carter as Seaton closed on 138-8 after 45 overs.

Shobrooke Park had little difficult in sealing a six wicket win, passing the home score in the 37th over.

You may also want to watch:

Ollie Aplin took 2-27 from nine fine overs and both Elliot Driver (1-16 from nine) and Chris Gamwell (1-15 from three) also claimed a wicket.

It proved to be a dark day for the club as the 1st XI also lost, going down by 120-runs in a low scoring affair at Cullompton. The Mid Devon side batted first and Seaton would have been content to have bowled them out for 186 in 43.1 overs. However, that was more than enough to see Seaton suffer their first defeat of the season as they were then bundled out for just 66!
