So please mark early October 2021 in your diaries, for your support of this worthy cause, Devons young cricketers.

DCSCC Friendly XI WIN by 35 runs at Bovey Tracey CC v Somerset Seniors

MATCH  REPORT by Andy Rose..Devon WIN local derby v Somerset...Somerset travelled to Bovey Tracey for a friendly in the heat on Tuesday. Batting first all the Devon batsmen contributed between 16 & 20 runs around the chief scorers Eddie Clarke (45 rt'd exhaustion)  and our new transfer from Somerset, Norman Botton (35 n.o.) with some lusty blows at the end of the innings as Devon closed on 168 for 5 from 40 overs. Somerset struggled in the early part of their reply & failed to score quickly against all the bowlers, though had wickets in hand at the half way point. Then as they tried to increase their scoring rate Keith Bell (8-2-26-5) and Mike Giles (8-1-34-3) began to apply the brakes & take wickets regularly, supported by three smart catches in the field by Martin Wright. In the end Devon ran out comfortable winners as Somerset were bowled out for 133 with 7 balls to spare. 

A BIG thank you to Somerset Seniors for travelling down to play, DCSCC players for supporting the match, and the return game will be on September 1st at Wembdon CC.
