EXMOUTH raced to a seven-wicket win over Sidmouth in the derby date on the Maer.

Cameron Kidd (4-27) claimed four Sidmouth wickets, and there were two each for Lawrence Greenway (2-17) and Ollie Dawe (2-47), as the visitors were bundled out for 143.

Losing four wickets for 20 runs scored getting to 73 for seven was a setback Sidmouth struggled to recover from.
Ben Way (28), George Addy (10) and in particular Jordan Fowler (14 off 48 balls) showed some stickability to get a semi-respectable total on the board.

Wickets fell at 47, 113 and 116 as Exmouth sauntered to victory inside 17 overs.

Louis Morison (42) got the chase started, James Horler (31) and Jason Niemand (31) kept it going and skipper Fin Marks (11no) was in at the end with Dan Pyle (17no).

Pyle dispatched Addy for back-to-back boundaries to win it.

For Marks it was ‘the perfect day out for us’.

“There is no better feeling than beating Sidmouth and all 20 points was the cherry on top of the cake,” said Marks.

“Our seamers set the tone and Cam Kidd probably produced the best spell I've seen him bowl.

“We drifted a little towards the end but finished strongly. Our batters were very positive and made the chase look easy.”

Luke Bess, the Sidmouth captain, kept his comments brief.

“Well played Exmouth. We were outplayed In all areas,” said Bess.
