EXETER v CORNWOOD
Exeter: Somerset’s Tom Lammonby remains in the side for a second successive match, but Taunton team-mate Ben Green is only a ‘maybe’ at the moment. With his university studies now over for the year, Jack Pierce has returned home to Nottingham. Dom Tuohey comes up for from the second team to offer skipper Robin Fern an extra spinning option.
CORNWOOD (Jackson Thompson): "Noah Carlisle makes his premier League debut at 15 years old and he will open the batting with me. Noah has been performing well for the 22nd XI and thoroughly deserves his chance. Aaron Richards is still out due to injury and Ciaran Gray is back at school. Max Finzel is away this week so Ewan Grewal comes in too. He is known for his power hitting and will also be making his Premier debut. James Richardson is back in the fold, as Adam Goodliffe is out due to work commitments, and will bolster our seam attack and add depth to the batting."
EXMOUTH v BOVEY TRACEY
Exmouth (Tim Piper): "Billy Rudolph is available so comes back in. Greg Marks is in for Matt Coult who has picked up a small injury. Things are really coming together now and we're finding the right balance of our team. The league is so tight, it only takes a couple of good results to get you right up the table."
Bovey Tracey (Lewis Hammett): "Looking forward to playing cricket (feel like I say that every week). Been frustrating having a stop-start season and feels like the first league game. Been tough this week on selection with lots of competition for places. Abraham Kopparambil and Toby Codd come in for Tay Ingham-Hill (back to school) and Will Christophers (2nd XI). Great to have Toby back from Uni and be able to call on a Devon spinner. Will Christophers has done brilliantly with the ball and can feel hard done by, but I know he will get some batting time in the middle and continue his form with the ball for the 2s. Have a number of people banging on the door, which shows the quality within the club with more to come back."
HATHERLEIGH v PLYMOUTH
Hatherleigh (Mark Lake): One change from last week’s team. Eddie Jones comes in for Gareth Tidball. Looking forward to getting going again after last week’s (Covid-19) issues. Plymouth are a dangerous side and now with their overseas (Fiazan Riaz) here they look a really decent side on paper. I am expecting a seriously tough game.
Plymouth (Jon Varcoe): "Two changes, Ted Haffenden is away on a Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme course and Dan Goodey has mock exams at university. Rob Bennett and Ollie Parsons come in. The boys are raring to go again after the disappointment of last week."
HEATHCOAT v SANDFORD
Heathcoat (Peter Randerson): "Batsman Rob Holman is absent to Dylan Penberthy comes in. Looking forward it. Hope it stays dry as we felt the game was ours but for the downpour last week."
Sandford (Richard Foan): "A couple of changes this week Ricky Hopwood, Harry Everett and Josh King all injured from last weekend. Adam Small is back playing school cricket. Sandy Allen, Harrison Jones and Shaun Hawkins come in. Luckily, we have good strength in depth to bring back these players. Think we all know we let ourselves down a bit last weekend; it was a poor chase. Heathcoat are always a challenge. There not too many easy games in the league this year. If we play to our ability I am sure we can get a result."
PAIGNTON v SIDMOUTH
Paignton (Keith Benton): "Unchanged from last week’s win at Sandford. The lads are building confidence and looking to go for back-to-back wins to keep momentum. Sidmouth are always a good team and this year they've got a good mix of experience and youth, similar to ourselves. Looking forward to a good game."
Sidmouth (Luke Bess): "Charlie Miles (spinner) not available so James Pickard* makes a return to first-team league cricket for us. After another rain-off last Saturday – getting ridiculous – praying for a dry day." *Pickard last played for Sidmouth on a casual basis in 2014. The last time he was a regular in the side was back in 2004.
