Two Sidmouth players are in Devon’s 13-man squad for the Minor Counties Championship game against Wiltshire starting on Sunday at Sandford, writes Conrad Sutclifffe.

Bowling all-rounder Zak Bess returns to the squad after missing the tied game with Herefordshire last week.

Also back is early order batsman Liam Lewis, who has been unable to play due to work commitments.

However, there is no place in the team for Sidmouth spinner Charlie Morris, who hasn’t missed a three-day game since making his debut for the county at the start of the 2014 season.

And Sidmouth’s Josh Bess, who made 94 in the game against Herefordshire at Eastnor, is unavailable due to personal commitments.
