Barnstaple and Pilton got their D Division East season off to a flyer on Saturday

Steve Moore took the first hat-trick of his career to help Barnstaple and Pilton beat Tiverton by nine wickets in the D Division East.

Moore has been around a while – he started playing as a 14 year old with the now defunct Raleigh club in the late 1970s – and has taken a lot of wickets since.

What he hadn’t done before Saturday was perform the hat-trick.

A caught, a bowled and an lbw comprised Moore’s hat-trick, which knocked the chair away underneath Tiverton.

Dan Reed had made 59 in a running total of 112 for six. After Moore’s intervention, and a wicket for Jason Smith, Tiverton were all out for 119.

Knocking off the runs was a cakewalk for Barnstaple, who were home and dry with nearly 20 overs to go.
