Sidbury Under-10s recorded a fine win when they travelled to Exmouth for their latest Bradleys East Devon Youth League softball game.

Arthur Whitby, skippering the team, lost the toss, but was not phased in the slightest and threw the ball to Oscar Bond to open the bowling, and he struck with the fifth delivery of the game!

Young Whitby gave everyone the opportunity to turn their arm over and almost all bagged a wicket.

A fine over from Daisy Grove kept the home run scoring in check and, with some tight fielding demonstrated by the experienced members of the team, Sidbury were able to restrict the home side to a closing total of 277.

With sunshine breaking through, the Sidbury run chase was launched by Oscar Bond and Jerry Deng.

The mantle was taken on by Karen Bountra and Arthur Whitby who showed some determined, if not risky, running to keep the score board ticking over!

Zach Curnow and Jake Curnow stood defiant in front of their wicket and Isabel Wood and Alice Clarkson gave nothing away.
