AFTER the excitement of winning their first Devon Cricket mini-league match at home to Ottery St Mary 2nds on Saturday – a game that saw Tyler Wellman hit his 100th run off the last ball of the game – Uplyme and Lyme Regis Sunday side welcomed the Four Counties touring side to the King George V playing field.
The visitors batted first for 232-6 off 35 overs, the main damage being caused by Ward (79 retired not out) and Wooley (50).
Josh Thomas was Uplyme’s best bowler, finishing with 2-23.
In reply, Uplyme just failed to hit a winning score, finishing their 35 overs with 209 runs on the board with good knocks coming from Steven Batey (44 not out), Joel Seward (37) and Jason Maltby (36 not out).
The annual Palmers’ Brewery game is being staged at the KGV this evening and on Saturday Uplyme travel to neighbours Axminster for their 2nd Devon mini-league game.
On Sunday (August 2) the club will be hosting the Kent-based touring side Royal K Challengers.
