O'50's 2nd XI draw Surrey in Semi-Final (home) at Bradninch on Thursday AUG' 22nd

More heroics from Nick Rogers (56*) and Marty Causey (35*) as Devon pulled off a remarkable win against Hertfordshire, in monsoon like conditions at Whimple, and now face SURREY at home. Great effort from the bowlers to restrict Herts to 155, Neal Peach leading the way with  9 4 14 2...Interesting events in the bar afterwards, but that's another story to be told at the AGM & Dinner in November perhaps!
