Matchday three of the Tolchards Devon League was washed out, writes Stephen Birley.

Of the 77 matches across the 16 divisions only five got underway and not one finished!

For Sidmouth it meant no play in their East Devon derby meeting with Exmouth as the Maer ground couldn’t beat the weather.

Back at Fortfield they were able to get underway as Sidmouth 2nds took on Exmouth II. The visitors had lost three wickets for 28 runs when the rains finally ended any hope of the match being played to a conclusion.

There was also some action at Ottery St Mary where the 2nd XI were 32 without loss when the contest was brought to an early end.

In terms of other East Devon club action, Honiton were at Culmstock where they had the home side 78-4 with Phil Tansley having taken all four wickets for just 28 runs, when the weather ended things prematurely.

Honiton II also saw action, they managed to reach 88-3 when the Mountbatten Park meeting with Countess Wear II was abandoned.
