West Buckland - 122 for 7

Exeter - 110 for 7 (Ben Sims 58 not out, Freddie O’Connell 32)

"On a blistering hot day at West Buckland the U14s inserted West Buckland in the county cup final, played as a 20 over tie," said Mr Ashman.

"To keep our opponents down to just over a run a ball in the wide expanses of the outfield was a pretty creditable effort. We managed to take wickets at key moments, with a superb runout by Emma Corney and a ‘jaffa’ of a delivery by James Tyler potentially proving crucial.

"The general verdict was that we had restricted West Buckland to a marginally below par score, but we would need to bat to the best of our abiity to get the victory. Tight bowling and impresive field setting by West Buckland ensured that runs were hard to come by; after ten overs we were 28 for 3.

"However, Freddie O’Connell (32) anchored the innings well and combined with a very busy and hugely effective knock from Ben Sims (58 not out), we pushed West Buckland into the last over, before the game was effectively sealed.

"Great credit must go to all our players for their spirit, resilience and no small amount of good cricket at various juctures of the game. The difference was probably seen in the middle orders of both teams, where West Buckland had a grester array of ‘big hitters’.

"Having said that, the team can be very proud of its efforts in this game and all the players were a pleasure to be with. I look forward to reporting back to their coach, Mr Baker, who will be disappointed in the result but delighted with the performance!"
