PETER Trego was Devon’s leading run getter in the three-day Unicorns Championship campaign that ended with an 86-run defeat by Cornwall at Exeter.

Although Trego only played in three of the six games, his total of 435 runs was greater than any other batsman. Trego scored two tons, two half-centuries and averaged 108.75.

Max Curtis had a superior average of 131, but he only played in the game against Wales and convention is one innings is insufficient to qualify for a formal average.

Skipper Alex Barrow was second behind his former Somerset team-mate Trego with 394 runs at an average of 78.80. He batted six times and scored a century in both innings in the game against Oxfordshire at Sidmouth.

Former captain Matt Thompson, who handed over to Barrow early in the season made 302 runs at an average of 50.33.

Bovey Tracey quick bowler Hugo Whitlock was the only player to appear in all six Championship games and he topped the bowling aggregates with 24 wickets at 21.04 each.

Dan Goodey, who was ruled out by a side strain mid-season, was second behing pro Wayne White (16.93) in the bowling averages with 12 wickets at 19.33 each.

Spin bowlers Toby Codd and Jamie Stephens were neck and neck in the bowling stats. Codd had 11 wickets at 31.90 each and Stephens 12 at 31.41.

The stats revealed that Devon used 24 players in six games. Whitlock was the only ever-present. No one else played more than four games. Significantly, seven players only featured in one match.
