CHERITON Fitzpaine beat Exeter Erratics in the final of the League of Friends Cup competition played on their own ground.

The top four sides in the league qualify for a cup finals day at Cheriton – three games one after the other.

Cheriton scraped through by one run in their semi-final against Yeoford.

Erratics pipped Newton St Cyres in the other semi to join Cheriton in the final.

Cheriton excelled with the bat to post a total of 143 for five in their 20 overs, with Calum McKechnie and Ben Coe batting superbly.

Erratics soon lost Fraser Chave, one of their top run scorers, who was bowled Coe in the first over.

With another useful batsman Jayakrupakar Nallala brilliantly caught by Charles Sheldrick, Erratics never came near to reaching the target and were all out for 101.Andy Cork of Newton St Cyres with the League shield, presented by Andy Davis of sponsors Ashgrove Kitchens
