CHAGFORD got the season up and running with a 51-run win over Chelston.

James Fulner hit 36 for Chagford, who were held to 165 all out by Russell Bennett (3-31) and Paul Harding (3-23).

Chris Harrison top scored for Chelston, who were bowled out for 114 in reply. Ash Gardner took four for 27.

“We were a bit naïve, but Chagford did bowl very well,” said Chelston captain Mark Faulkner.

Chagford, who have just signed former Exeter and Whimple bowler Christian Bostock, are at home to Kingsbridge this Saturday.
