North Devon beat Exmouth by 117 runs

NORTH Devon thrahsed Exmouth by 117 runs in their final home game of the Premier season.

Somerset staffman Jamie Overton belted 69 off 56 balls as North Devon accelerated from 66 for four to 197 for nine.

After former Exmouth batter Barney Huxtable had been in and out for 21 and Rob Ayre had made 29, Overton held the middle order together.

The key stand was one of 71 for the sixth wicket between Overton and Matt Westaway (13).

While the batting was adequate, it was the bowling that blew Exmouth away.

Aussie speedster Jack Pudney took five for 35 bowling eight overs on the reel, Overton had four for 31 at the other end and former Warwickshire paceman Tom Allin knocked over Jamie Tapper to end it all.

North Devon bowled too straight and too fast for Exmouth. There were three caught behinds, three lbws, three bowleds and a caught at slip for Huxtable.

Pudney set the tone by having opener Sandy Allen caught in the grabbers by Huxtable first ball.

Exmouth were all out for 80 in just 15-4 overs – Tapper and David Lye making 17 each to save them from total humiliation after they had been 19 for five.
