BRAUNTON went down by nine wickets to visiting Paignton to leave them in the Premier basement as the half-way stage in the season approaches.

Paignton seamer Mark Gilmour found a purple patch as he took five for 22 to put the skids under Braunton, who were bowled out for 118.

Half-centuries from Seb Benton (54no) and Bradley Rasool (50no) took Paignton to a speedy win in the 24th over.

For Braunton captain Jon Baglow it was a day to forget as his side hit rock bottom in the table.

"We had a decent start - we were 75 for none - then we were 95 for six and done for," said Baglow.

"The Premier Division is an unforgiving place and there are no second chances once you start losing wickets on that scale.

"I thought Mark Gilmour bowled very well, but we should not have been bowled out as cheaply as we were."

Barney Huxtable (38) and Mark Lathwell (24) opened up for Braunton with a stand of 75 which ended when Lathwell was caught behind of Gilmour.

Rob Shergold had Huxtable caught in the covers in the next over and the slide was well and truly on as five wickets went for six runs in total.

Andy Paddison and James Windsor went in the same over from Gilmour - both bowled - and there were two wickets Tom field as the carnage worsened.

Steve George got in on the act at the end with two wickets in seven balls to remove Alex Hodges and Baglow.
