The cricket club skittles team suffered big disappointment in their latest Sampford Peverell and District Skittles League outing, beaten by Elmore with the margin at the end of a fine contest being 13!
Last on the Bradninch team needed a brace of 85s to claim an important win and keep alive their fading title hopes, but it was not to be and the Eagles flew Kensham Park with the points. A highlight of the match was that Elmore secured a ‘best to date’ on the Kensham Park alley with an amazing leg of 115!
For the home side the top score was an impressive five-spare 87 from Eddie Andress and the ‘best of the rest’ was a 67 from skipper Derrick Foan.
Chris Hatherley hit 66, but the only other score of 60 or more was a 60 from Phil Chappell. Rob Acton had a 59, Mark Perrott 50 and the other returns were a 48 from Chris Acton and a 47 from Dave Trump.
Elmore won the match 497-484 with Geoff Parr their top scorer with 75.
