Unfortunately, another wet Sunday damaged bank holiday weekend Super 8s cricket, but Harry Everett hoovered up what little action there was.

In the central competition, Topsham were bowled out for 85 in 13.3 overs before the match was abandoned. R.Miller top scored with 32 as J Watson was the chief destroyer with 3-2 off 2.3 overs.

There was no play in the East, but the West saw a game completed. Cornwood beat Stoke Gabriel by 94 runs. Kat Frost retired with 30* before taking 4-4 off two and Sadie Goodliffe got 23* before then keeping wicket.

Leanne Robbins led Stoke’s wicket-taking with 2-38 but no Stoke batter reached double figures.

Interview with Holsworthy CC's Freya Godfrey

Rather than me just round up the little action from play cricket I also used this quiet week of action to have a good chat with Freya Godfrey on all things Holsworthy CC – one of the very few clubs in Devon I must confess to never yet having played or watched a game at – so an education for your writer too!

She talks through their ‘North’ loss by 86 runs to Taunton Deane and the friendly played straight after too:

"We were looking forward to finally starting our Super 8s league with two home games to North Devon and Taunton Deane but with the upsetting news that North Devon couldn’t raise a side we just hoped that the weather held out so we could at least play one game.

"We had some luck and after confirming that the ground was fine to play on Taunton were on their way early in the morning. To make the journey worthwhile we had decided on playing a 16 over friendly game after our league game.

"Taunton Deane put an impressive score on the board whilst only losing three wickets (two from myself and one from J. Gardener). A win wasn’t looking likely as the score kept increasing but the field stayed alive with plenty of encouragement and laughter.

"R. Sharp opened the batting confidently with S.Ashford of which Sally did well and stayed in for a strong 11 overs. The other girls came in afterwards to try and increase the run rate with H. Steadman scoring a boundary off her first ball but unfortunately we couldn’t quite manage it coming up short at the end of 16 overs.

"The friendly afterwards followed a similar pattern with Taunton Deane batting first and losing three wickets (two to J.Gardener and one for myself) but I decided to change the batting order slightly to allow for R.Sharp to open again but with L.Godfrey this time who went on to achieve an amazing 33* beating all of Taunton Deanes bowlers.

"Sunday was thoroughly enjoyed by all of our team, although it didn’t go our way we were all just pleased to finally get a game on. Roll on next time!"

Thanks to Freya Godfrey, it is great to have personal tales from the pitch, anyone wanting to give me similar in future is welcome to get in touch so you do not have to read just my thoughts and interpretations of scorecards!
