Devon Women are set to play their first home match in almost two years on Monday, May 6, hosting Cornwall at Thorverton CC for an 11am start time.

Devon Women have not played on home soil since a T20 double-header against Dorset and Cornwall at Heathcoat CC in May 2022. The side will be hoping for a repeat of that day as Devon Women came out on top, beating Cornwall by 11 runs.

After the first round of fixtures, Devon Women sit second in the ECB Women's 50-over County Championship Group 3 and will be looking to build on the 7-wicket win last time out against Dorset. Cornwall, on the other hand, will be looking to bounce back from their 7-wicket defeat to Somerset in the opening round of fixtures.

Due to a pre-scheduled holiday, David Joseph will be absent during the game, with coach Sean Day taking his place.

Devon Women finished off a rain-affected season on a high, beating Cornwall to third place in Group 8 of the Women's County T20. Devon recovered well from 11 for 3 after the first six overs to set a target of 101, with Cornwall taking the game to the final over where Erin Vukusic bowled consecutive dot balls in the final two balls of the game to secure a 4-run victory.

Sean Day's Thoughts

"I'm looking forward to building on the great work at Dorset a few weeks ago.

"The enthusiasm and energy on display was awesome and it will be great to see the same again next week."

Captain's Thoughts

"We had really great first game against Dorset last time out which has put us second in the group.

"We now just need to keep executing our skills, starting on Monday."
