Sidmouth cricketer Zak Bess was presented with his county cap after playing a starring role for Devon in their 10-wicket win over Cornwall on the Fortfield, writes Conrad Sutcliffe.
Bess clubbed an unbeaten 166 for Devon in a first innings total of 404 for nine on day two of the three-day game.
Bess and Jack Dart shared a record stand of 174 for the seventh wicket.
Cornwall, 118 runs behind on first innings, were bowled out for 158 second time round. Bess took three of the first four wickets to fall and finished with five for 35.
It was impressive stuff by the Sidmouth all-rounder on his home ground and was recognised by the awarding of a county cap after the game.
