O'70's offered Quarter Final place v WALES (a) as Suffolk pull out of the National Championship.

A fine century from Bob Eames (107) and good support from Macey, Stanton & Theedom gave Devon a healthy 211 for 4 (40 overs) Berman, Rosey & Page made inroads, two fine stumpings & a run out by John Goodwin left Wiltshire 29 runs short, and a QF v Wales.

*Suffolk have pulled out of the QF on Thursday August 5th, and Devon have been offered their place to play WALES (a)

** Should Devon wish to take part in the 'Vase' Competition, teams finishing 9 10 11 will have a bye into the QF's and a home fixture Thursday AUGUST 5th (H)


A steaming hot day at Bovey Tracey CC meant winning the toss was vital …. After completing the hard part Devon batted first amassing 221-9, Flicker 51 and Kennard 39 got us off to a good start and then Steve Harris with a beautifully timed innings of 64no left the Gloucestershire fielders toiling. Despite losing an early wicket Gloucestershire made progress into the total, and at 100-1 the game was in the balance, but Devon bowled and fielded with great skill and finally worked their way through the batting order, Harris 3-33 completing his all-round performance and Gloucestershire were bowled out for 193. Devon winning by 28 runs.
