Lions take on Gloucestershire at Bovey Tracey today

DEVON Lions complete their season today (Monday) with a 50-over friendly against Gloucestershire 2nd XI at Bovey Tracey (11am).

Torquay trio Matt Petherbridge, Joe Thompson and Reid Mawdsley are in the side, as is Paignton’s Harry Ward.
Ward, who bats and bowls leg-spin, hammered out a case for inclusion by making 157 for Paignton 2nd XI at North Devon last Saturday.

If the name sounds familiar it should! Dad Tim played for Devon between 1986-97 and granddad Trevor was mainstay of the Paignton club as player, coach and administrator for more than 40 years.

Toby Codd links up with the Lions having stepped in to act as 12th man for Devon against Cornwall yesterday as a late replacement for the injured Joe Hagan-Burt

Devon Lions: H J Sargent (Sidmouth), R A Mawdsley (Torquay), M P Skeemer (Cornwood), J Walsh (Plymouth), J K Drew (Heathcoat), J E Thompson (Torquay), T R J Codd (Bovey), D J Goodey (Plymouth), H C B Ward, H M Whitlock (both Paignton), G S Crouch (Thoverton), M J Petherbridge (Torquay).
