60s 2nd XI
Published on Jul 29, 2021
Devon batted on a rain filled afternoon to 154 for 5, Steve Harris (49*) and Dave Hart (25*) sharing a partnership of 72 in the driving rain. After a prolonged delay of 2hrs, Somerset chased a generous target of 98 in 20 overs, and achieved it with 4 balls to spare. An away draw in the last 8 and it seems AWAY to YORKSHIRE RIDINGS on AUGUST 10th...Neil Matthews awaits your decision?

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.

Devon Over 60s 2nd XI 2015 Report
A disappointing end to a season full of promise, as we again arrested the 'Western Division Title' for the third year running, due certainly to a group of players whom gave commitment throughout, with the willingness to play or support the team whenever called upon to do so.
Sadly the season ended in controversy with Surrey, and then the unwillingness of Sussex to travel halfway, put the blinkers down on what was a successful season yet again, and of course the weather was another important factor.
My thanks to Ian Western, Nick Forbes, Roger Tolchard, Pete Gascoigne & Di Wadsworth for all your contributions.
Congratulations to leading run scorers Richard Coe & Gerry Keen, and leading wicket takers Graham Darke, Reehan Caryl, Paul Berman, Pete Rose & wicket-keeper Nigel Mountford, who had a great season behind the stumps & also with the bat.
Newcomers Andy Rose, Mike Giles, Alastair Ashworth & Eddie Clarke all settled into their first season well, thanks also to Barry Flicker, Dave Gambie & Dave Amery for playing your part.
To my Vice-Captain Richard Coe 'thanks a million' for without your continued help, none of this would have been achieved.
As you probably know by now that I am standing down, so that hopefully I may play 1st XI cricket next year, it's been a pleasure sharing this success with you all.

Travelling to Sussex for the Semi-Final of the Plate Competition...General Consensus of opinion was not to travel.
Thank you for your input, and today I informed Sussex that we won't be travelling to Horsham C.C.to take part in the Semi-Finals of the Plate Competition this Wednesday Sept' 9th, due to the non-availability of some (3), and the unwillingness of Sussex to meet half-way to play this match.
My thanks to you all for putting up with me for this year, as I shall be standing down as Captain...I have really enjoyed leading the team, and will have some lovely memories of the fact that we have achieved THREE straight Championship successess, well done everyone!...see you all at the Dinner in November, book with Stuart now to avoid disappointment (Rosey)

O'60's 2nd XI lose in tense Quarter-Final with Surrey...
Loosing the toss never helps this time of year, and Devon were inserted. Sheps (41) & Rose JNR got off to a flyer, 40 off 10overs, then the Surrey spinners quelled Devon's ambitions, then an unfortunate run-out, but runs from Rose SNR (45) & Coe (30) posted a reasonable target of 186.
Sadly, our bowling didn't turn up for this match, save the hard working Mike Giles, (126.96.36.199) Reehan picked up three, the pitch eased to make batting batter, and Surrey got over the line with two overs to spare...MOM...Mike Giles
Devon face Sussex now in the SEMI-FINALS of the Plate Competition, hopefully a mid-way game next week at either Malborough CC or Bournemouth University Ground, those involved please make yourselves available over the next TWO weeks please.
