Matt Golding and Will Squire both featured in the Devon Lions side beaten by five wickets at Creedy Park, Sandford by a Devon League XI. Golding bounced back from his previous day’s duck at Instow hitting the top score of 75 in the Lions’ 185 . Coming in at number four, he and Seb Benton… Continue Reading

1st XI vs North Devon – 11th August 2012

A fourth, successive defeat coupled with some unexpected results elsewhere on match-day 15 of the Francis Clark League season has left the 1st XI in grave danger of losing their Premier status after four years in the top-flight. Playing at North Devon they very nearly produced a sensational fight back to haul victory from the… Continue Reading

2nd XI vs Braunton – 11th August 2012

Lukas Fencl starred with the bat striking a fine half-century, but it was in a losing cause as the 2nd XI went down by five wickets. After the early loss of Derrick Foan (1), the first of three wickets for young James Lathwell, the grand-master Andy Nicholls proceeded to score 20 before he also fell… Continue Reading

Bradninch Midweek XI vs Old Coulsdon – 8th August 2012

Old Coulsdon, making their 46th visit to Devon, provided the midweek opposition for a 30-over game played in very soft conditions after another bout of mid-summer rain. Skipper Christopher Dean offered the visitors, who have been coming to Kensham Park since the late 1970s, the option to bat or bowl and they chose the latter.… Continue Reading

2nd XI vs Budleigh Salterton – 4th August 2012

Pete Mercer has had quite an impact since joining the club. The pleasant Northern lad was introduced to the Kensham Park way of life prior to the 2nd XI trip to Plymouth. Upon arrival at Torpoint where the game was set to be played, the new man had first to show the hosts how to… Continue Reading

1st XI vs Budleigh Salterton – 4th August 2012

1st XI vs Budleigh Salterton – 4th August 2012

If the 1st XI were not involved in a relegation dog-fight before the home game with Budleigh, they most certifiably are in one at stumps, after a devastating defeat in a game that, for so long, they looked very much like winning. Five wickets were lost in the space of 31 deliveries that consigned the… Continue Reading

2nd XI vs Plymouth III – 28th July 2012

2nd XI heroes – all ten of them If it was a wee bit gloomy in terms of the action at Kensham Park then it was the opposite for the 2nd XI with Rob Acton’s mix of young and old bringing home the bacon with a fantastic result from their trip to Torpoint and victory… Continue Reading

1st XI vs Bovey Tracey – 28th July 2012

1st XI vs Bovey Tracey – 28th July 2012

It was all done and dusted before 6pm at Kensham Park with table-topping Bovey Tracey making sure that the month of July ended badly for Bradninch with a seven-wicket win. A month that started with talk of mounting a title challenge ends with the concerns that, with five to play, there’s still work to do… Continue Reading

Heathcoat victors in T20 decider

Heathcoat victors in T20 decider

Fortunately it is not often that the words humiliating and embarrassing have been heard at Kensham Park over the past decade. Sadly those are just the words being used to describe the hammering dished out by Heathcoat in a one-sided Mid Devon Twenty20 Final. To be fair to the hosts the side they fielded was… Continue Reading

Midweek XI vs Bournville – 23rd July 2012

Midweek XI vs Bournville – 23rd July 2012

The Bradninch Midweek XI might well have got a right royal beating by a very useful visiting Bournville CC side, but there were many positives to draw from the match. Where to begin? The Kensham Park faithful were treated to a most impressive first game in the Bradninch Midweek XI colours of Ottery St Mary… Continue Reading
