Sidbury entertained Topsham for their latest Under-10 outing.

Sidbury skipper Skate Leisk won the toss and invited the visitors to bat first.

Topsham began well and had a dozen runs on the board after the first four overs, despite a wicket that fell to Josh John-Ringe.

Next to bowl were Cleo Turley and Charlie Turley and they tore into the away side’s batting, claiming five wickets between them!

The Tops had to dig deep, which they did, and, despite two wickets for Alec Bagwell, a challenging target of 221 was set.
