Glorious campaigns over

The final game of the 2008 season proved to be as dramatic as it could possibly have been with the 1st XI going into the game at Barton knowing that in order to be crowned champions of the A Division they needed to bank TWO more points than Bovey Tracey would in their match at… Continue Reading

1st XI still game, 2nd XI secure draw, NDL hopes kept alive

Promotion still ahead, despite comfortable win for Bovey Another lamentable display with the bat saw the 1st XI beaten for a second successive Saturday and whilst the side remains well on course for promotion, especially given the run of fixtures between now and the end of the campaign, the confidence has taken a big knock… Continue Reading

Sunday defeat adds to weekend woes

As if the Saturday double defeat for 1st and 2nd XI’s wasn’t hard enough to take, the following day saw the Sunday 1st XI also slip to a devastating defeat when beaten by nine wickets by NDL title chasing rivals North Devon.
