Sidbury Under-10s played Sidmouth on Sunday during a great, if very lucky, bright spell, for a T20 softball match.

Sidmouth set the pace with their opening batsmen who made a 38 run partnership. The Sidbury bowlers then began the task of taking wickets with Scott Monro Higgs, Eli Moss, Harry Wood and Ellie Monro Higgs all taking wickets and Ellie Wood and Isabaelle Wood managing to keep the runs down to yielding just eight off their combined four overs.

Sidmouth completed their innings and posted a score of 91.

The opening Sidbury launched into the home bolwing and, with hardly a dot ball in sight, seven overs ended with the reply 56-1.

Ellie Wood scored 16 before being retired after which the run-rate slowed despite strong performances from Jack Pugh and Oscar Bond.
