2nd XI B division west

Yelverton 158 for 5,

Kingsbridge 155 all out;

Yelverton (20 points) beat Kingsbridge (five) by five wickets

Kings were away to Yelverton for the last game of the season.

On losing the toss and being asked to bat on a wet wicket, leading run scorer John Hardy, with 476 runs, fell on 12.

He has been the man to help the Kings stay up this season with his run scoring. Soon after last week’s star Mitchlemore fell for 4.

Willmot came in to bat with Ed Church, who fell one over later for a well earned 22, leaving him with just over 140 runs all told.

Pasty entered with Willmot and both batted, well pushing the score along before, with the score on 80-3, Wil­lmot fell on 20 and Pas­ty on 26, leaving him with 263 runs.

In came captain and vice captain Clive Clark and Matt Hammett.

They stayed in to see off the bowlers and hit the bad ball before Clark was dismissed for 12, leaving him with 93 runs this season, even though he has helped out the first team over the season.

Hammett fell on 19, leaving him on 269 runs for the season, a very good effort.

Finally the 10 men of Kings were out for 155.

In reply, Pasty took two wickets, with Church, Clark and Perkin all claiming one each, leaving Yelverton to win by five wickets.

Kingsbridge second team would like to thank James Ellis for the 244 runs that he scored, another that helped out the first team.

The team would also like to thank young George Holland for scoring 180 runs in a handful of games, along with joint top wicket-taker of 14. M Edmonds, Olly Robin­son, Sam Rhymes and Mike Perkin should also get a mention.

Vice captain Clive Clark said: ‘I would like to thank Hannah and Donna for sorting out the teas and for Hannah Clark for scoring on the away games.

‘If I’ve forgotten anyone, thank you for all your support during the season.

‘See you all again next season and thank you once again.’
