BARNSTAPLE are off the bottom of the B Division with a 51-run win over Plymstock.

Barum’s total of 218 all out was respectable rather than stiff, but Plymstock got nowhere near it.

Barnstaple got to 110 for two with the Popham brothers – Jack (62) and Tom (42) in the runs – with the former batting on with George McEndoo before he was seventh out at 197.

Steve Moore (4-15), James Thomas (3-21) and Jack Popham (2-31) all kept it tight as the run-rate climbed from improbable to impossible.
