Hatherleigh kept the pressure up on top three Cornwood, Bradninch and Budleigh with an 11-run win over Tavistock on Saturday.

Hatherleigh were all out for 251 in the last of their 50 overs.

Openers Ryan Davies (38) and Rob Fishleigh (36) got Hatherleigh up and running, Tino Mutombodzi (68) held the middle of the innings together and Rob Cockwill added 40 after drinks.

Charlie Barriball (4-21) was easily the pick of the Tavistock bowlers.
