Batting first, Uplyme and Lyme Regis close don an imposing 266-9 after 45 overs. It was opening bowlers Bertie Creer and Andrew Donovan who shared the six wickets that Clyst St George managed to snap up. Donovan claimed four of them at a cost of 47 runs from a full nine overs while Creer sent down eight overs and finished with figures of 2-52.

Clyst St George skipper Harry Attwater used seven bowlers, including himself, but none of the others were able to make an impression against a home side that were on their way to winning for only the second time this season.

Chris Ferro and Freddie Creer gave the Bohea Field men a 62 run start before Creer fell when on 29, the first of what would be four catches held in the outfield by home centurion Bruce Maltby. Dan Kendall was next in, and out, also caught by Maltby for two, but that brought Jayakripakar Nallala to join Ferro and the pair took the run chase to 93 when Ferro became the third man down having scored 31.

Dan Takle took over and he and Nallala took the score on to 148 when Takle was trapped leg before for a five boundary 24. Skipper Attwater was next to go, caught got four and, when the fine knock of Nallala was ended with him having just reached his half century, Clyst St George were 179-6 and still 90 runs shy of victory.

Sam Read and Andrew Donovan batted their side right back into contention, taking the chase to 250, and just 19 runs shy of success, when Donovan was run out having scored 40, with four fours and two sixes. No further runs were added as Read followed him back to the pavilion, caught for a fine 39, hitting four fours and one six and, despite an unbeaten eight from number ten batsmen Tom Wilson, the Clyst St George tail enders could not quite get their side over the line and they slipped to an eighth defeat in 10 league outings so far this season.

On Saturday (July 14), Clyst St George are in home action when they host a Chardstock side that beat them by six wickets when the teams met in East Devon on matchday two of the new season. Clyst St George slipped into one of the three D Division East relegation berths after they went down by just two runs in their meeting with hosts Uplyme and Lyme Regis and then learnt of a surprise win for Sandford II over high-flying Chardstock.
