The Division One title of the North Devon Cricket League will be decided on Sunday at The Lawn, Newton Tracey, where North Devon will be the visitors.

After further wins for both at the weekend, the pair go into the game separated by just half a point, making it a winner-takes-all encounter.

Newton Tracey won their final away game by six wickets at Bideford.

Mike Young top scored with 80 for Bideford in a total of 180 all out. Jon Turner (4-34) and Rob Gear (4-44) shared the wicket taking. Nick Parkin (53) and Richard Screech (44) then set up the successful run chase, with Gary Chatham’s unbeaten 41 taking Newton Tracey over the line.

North Devon also won at Sandford. Batting first, they closed on 169-9 and then bowled hosts Sandford out for 139.

Dan Bowser led the Instow side with 76 and Tom Ansell added 22. Ryan Glass claimed 3-32 for the Creedy Park side and then hit 32, only bettered by Tom Sparrow (42) as Kasey Elliot claimed 3-21 for North Devon.

Halberton made sure of top spot in Division Two after they maintained their unbeaten record, but were made to work hard by Shebbear.

John Chilcott (57) and Tom Radley (50) led the Mid Devon men to 214-8. James Starkey took 4-36 for Shebbear, who came mighty close thanks to a stunning knock of 145 from Ollie Wicket their final wicket falling on 196. Radley completed a fine all-round shift for his team with 3-43.

Incorrigibles are set to claim runners-up after winning by five runs at Victoria Park.

Ryan Bowden (51) led the Witheridge side to 165-7. Dave Smale took 3-21 for the hosts, who made a great fist of the run chase. Giles Bashford top scored with 48 while Ryan Bowden completed a fine individual contribution with 3-21.

Beaford and Lynton and Lynmouth played their final Division Two match and they’ll not meet next summer as Lynton and Lynmouth are going down. Their final outing saw them lose by seven wickets after they were bowled out for just 51, with Beaford’s Paul Heard taking 5-4. Dan Lane hit 19 in the home reply of 52-3.

Heathcoat II are just eight points away from being crowned Division Four champions after they beat Petrockstowe. Jim Cridland (26) and James Drew (12) were the only home batsmen into double figures in a paltry total of 77 as Brendon Harris claimed 4-8. But Petrockstowe were then hustled out for just 67, James Drew (3-2) and Dan Reed (3-3) the key wicket takers.

Dominic Ford struck 88 and Phil Woods 58 as North Molton closed on 210-9 at North Devon III. Rob Mann took 4-40 for the Instow side, who were then bowled out for 109. Tom Stanton (27) and Mat Knapman (26) were the only home batsmen to spend long at the crease as George Long-Howell claimed 3-2 in three overs and Rob Ayre took 3-29.
