Run machine - Matt Golding

MATT Golding went through two landmarks in one innings as Bovey Tracey wrapped up their title-winning season with a 147-run win over Exmouth,

Bovey were already assured of their Premier title going into the game so the players could afford to let their hair down.

Opener and captain Peter Bradley (47) got out at 75 for two, which brought Golding to the crease.

Golding needed 13 runs for 600 in a league season so by smacking an unbeaten 124 passed one target and went through 700 as well.

There were 11 fours and four sixes in Golding’s innings, which came off 101 balls. He put on 73 with Luke Jongwe (27) and 86 with Devon team-mate Toby Codd (38) as Exmouth’s bowling crumbled.

Exmouth were short handed in the bowling department at Bovey, to the extent that wicketkeeper Sandy Allen (2-46) had to turn his arm over.

Marc Douglas (3-42) and Dave Lye (0-43) bowled tidy 10-over spells for Exmouth.

Allen opened the batting for Exmouth and was still there unbeaten on 70 when the last wicket fell at 143.

Lye made 10 and Alvin Pollard 27. No one else got into double figures.

Codd spun his way to four Exmouth wickets for 25 runs and young off-spinner Chris Yabsley had three for 22.
