B DIVISION BRIEFING – WEEK 14
TAVISTOCK (3rd) v BRIDESTOWE (5th)
Tavistock (Shaun Daymond): I am away and Will Scott-Munden is unavailable. In come Ian Gray and Tim Swanepoel, who took five wickets for the 2ndXI last week. We know the boys from Bridestowe well so it's always a good game. We want to carry on the winning streak and make up for our tight loss at their place. Five games to go and everything to play for.
Bridestowe (Dan Fogerty): Team still isn't finalised yet. Tough work with other sports starting now, but hoping to have two competitive sides out.
DARTINGTON & TOTNES (10th) v CLYST ST GEORGE (top)
Dartington & Totnes (Mick Rusling): We aim to enjoy our remaining matches. Despite it being a very challenging season, our team spirit has been high and we hope it will continue. Usual game of musical players this week. Chris Cook absent, Kevan Throgmorton and Josh Orrell back. I'm an injury doubt.
Clyst St George (Dan Kendall): Two changes sees Will Furniss and George O'Dwyer up from the 2nd XI. George was our opening bowling last year so we're glad to have him back. D&T's performances have improved as the season has gone on. We know we need to be on our game to ensure we pick up the win.
BOVEY TRACEY II (2nd) v CHUDLEIGH (8th)
Bovey Tracey (Dan Green): Struggling with availability and have a big challenge on our hands. Still quietly confident the club has enough depth to finish in the top two, even after being hard done by due to rain-offs
Chudleigh (Adam Kent): Two enforced changes through availability: Ben Holmes and Rob Clarke are back in and Mike Brown and Alex Haywood are not available this weekend. Our aim for the remainder of the season is to cement our place in the division for next season, really enjoy our cricket and build on the positives with bat and ball.
BIDEFORD (6th) v CULLOMPTON (7th)
Bideford (Tom Brend): We're pretty much full strength this weekend for the first time in a while. James Hayter returns to the top of the order, as well as seamer Chris Luxton and all rounder James Roe. We are looking forward to a good game this Saturday and are looking to bounce back after a string of defeats.
Cullompton (Todd Scrace): A couple of changes. Myself away and Dan King unavailable. Nathan Vincent and Adrian Pullin in. We will travel to Biddeford with full confidence. Every game is a big game now, but we've got batters and bowlers bang in form at the right time.
IVYBRIDGE (9th) v IPPLEPEN (4th)
Ivybridge (Jon Sparkes): Team news is that Josh Zimmerman, James Bullock and George Berry are all back replacing Callum King, James Grigg and Jon Doel respectively. All three are experienced first-team players: a batting all-rounder and two seam bowlers respectively. Hoping their experience will help keep control in the field. Had a high-scoring game with Ipplepen at their place and expecting similar on Saturday. They'll go hard (as they always do) so we need to up for it. Basically five cup finals now for us if we want to stay in the B Division. We have the talent (no doubting that), so we just need to get the results our performances deserve.
Ipplepen (Simon Tapley): Still finalising the team, couple of changes. Just looking forward to enjoying the last five games.
