North Devon’s Aussie all-rounder Adrian Isherwood must wish he could play against Bradninch every week.

Isherwood must like the Bradninch bowling as he took a century off them earlier in the season – and did it again in the rematch in the Sandhills with an unbeaten 110.

Isherwood and Josh King (52) had the only scores over 25 in North Devon’s total of 222 for seven. Only two other batters – Dan Bowser and Ed Yeo – reached double figures.

His left-arm spin proved troublesome for Bradninch when the sides met in May and his second four-wicket haul against them did the Ninch no favours.

Bradninch had it all to do after Rikki Kelly (2-26) and King reduced them to 20 for three. Gary Chappell (20), Ross Acton (45), Kian Burns (28) and Leon Horn (38) set about repairing the damage.

At 183 for seven with Thom Bunker on 29, the game could have gone either way. Isherwood trapped Bunker lbw and the last three wickets went for seven runs as the Ninch dipped to 190 all out.

Tom Popham, who led the side in the North Devon side in the absence of skipper Matt Westaway, said getting a defendable total was only half the story.

“Bradninch dropped plenty of easy chances, which would have put us in trouble.

“We battled well in the field, took our catches and bowled good lines and lengths, which the wicket required.”
