LUSTLEIGH, Kentisbeare and Ivybridge are among the clubs who have signed players in readiness for the season ahead.

Lustleigh, who won a second successive promotion in 2019 and will be playing E Division West cricket this summer, have snapped-up West Indian Kaelan Vanterpool.

Vanterpool is a bowler who bats and has been playing across the disciplines in Barbados for Maple CC.

His day to remember was back in 2011 when, playing in an under-15 tournament for Alexandra, he bagged nine St Lucy wickets for 23 runs.

Euen Tinsley, a batsman, has returned to Kentisbeare after five seasons the other side of the M5 with Cullompton.

“Euan approached us about re-joining for this season and we are really happy to have him back,” said Kent’s skipper Tom Martin.

“Looking forward to seeing him score lots of runs… hopefully.”

Callum King, a keeper-batsman with Ipplepen, has departed for B Division rivals Ivybridge.

King is a student in Plymouth and has told Ipplepen playing and training for Ivybridge will be more convenient in terms of travelling.

Keith Wakeham, the Ipplepen chairman, said he hoped the move would be temporary.

“Callum is a promising young player who has been a mainstay of the second team and a player we hope will be back one day,” said Wakeham.
