HEATHCOAT’S up-and-coming pace bowler Joe Hancock has been named in a Devon squad for the game against Shropshire at Sidmouth (Sunday-Tuesday).

Hancock, who caught the eye when he bowled his way to the top of the Tolchards DCL wicket-taking charts earlier in the season, is a straight swap for the unavailable Dan Goodey.

Otherwise the 12 is the same one that lost to Cornwall at Truro nearly three weeks ago. The game is the fourth and final match in Western Division Two and Devon's last chance to register a win in red-ball cricket this season. 

Devon (from): J A Stephens (Taunton Deane), M W Thompson (Port Talbot), C J Haggett (Bridgwater), E H Hamilton (Plympton), J D Horler (Exmouth), B A Beaumont (Cornwood), S O Read (Exeter), A J Small (Sandford), M P Skeemer (Cornwood), K B Szymanski (Swansea), J Hancock (Heathcoat), E W O Middleton (Exeter).

DEVON’S cricketers will break new ground on Bank Holiday Sunday when they take part in a Ten10 tournament against Dorset and Wiltshire.

Dorset are hosting the competition at Wimborne CC’s ground on Sunday, August 30. Devon have played in local and national T20 tournaments before, but never in a 10-over version.

The three-match programme is:

10.30am: Dorset v Wiltshire

12.30pm:Wiltshire v Devon

2.30pm:Dorset v Devon

The two teams with the best records will meet in the final at 5pm,
