A look through the latest seasons’ statistics across the three Sidmouth senior sides underline just why the club is enjoying such a fabulous season.

With four games remaining of their respective 18-game Francis Clark Devon League campaigns there are no fewer than 14 players who have all struck 250 or more league runs whilst each of the three teams boasts a number of big wicket takers!

In terms of the 1st XI stats it is Liam Lewis who leads the way – he is also currently the top run scorer in the entire Premier Division.

Lewis has accumulated 760 runs this season – Bradninch batsman Jackson Thompson who smashed a new league record of 222 recently - is the nearest to Lewis with 748 runs.

Lewis has an average of 69.1; that to is currently the best in the top flight.
