The visitors were beaten by 171 runs in the Tolchards Devon Cricket League.

Braunton host Feniton on Saturday looking to bounce back from a hefty 171-run drubbing at Kilmington.

Killy’s sizeable total of 365 for four wasn’t a divisional record, but the opening stand of 249 between Brett Garner (113) and Josh Short (183no) definitely was.

Clyst Hydon pair John Rhodes and Simon Holmes set the old record at 168 against Uplyme in 2016.

Short’s 183 not out – 15 fours and nine sixes – beat the previous individual best for the division of 162 scored by Simon Prideaux of Filleigh against Kentisbeare in 2015.

Braunton’s bowling figures are not suitable reading for cricketers of a nervous disposition.

Jon Baglow’s two for 45 from nine overs was the best of the bunch. Jamie Matthews (1-48 off 3) was at the other end of the scale.

Braunton were all out for 194 in reply with seven of their 45 overs unbowled.

Braunton were 147 for four when Martin Smith was dismissed for 35. Baglow (41) had already been and gone.

Paddy Dartnoll stuck around for 36 but no one else made more than a dozen as the last five wickets went for 34 runs.
