The Cornwall Development XI drew their two-day game against Devon Lions at Mount Wise in Plymouth . Cornwall had been dismissed for 163 in their first innings with Scott Harvey making 44. Devon replied with 140 all out with Jake Luffman making 31 and Matthew Kidd 30. Callum Wilson took five for 51 and Liam Watson three for 32. Cornwall then declared on 117 for eight with skipper Joe White top scoring with 22 and Kidd taking four for 52. Set 141 to win the Devon Lions were 119 for five, with two overs remaining, when a heavy shower saw the game abandoned as a draw. Skipper Barney Huxtable made 50. Tom Eggins took three for 21.

Development XI Report 2013  -   Sean Hooper    (Development XI Manager)

 2013 was a challenging season involving 6 fixtures against various West Country counties and mixed age ranges. We completed 4 fixtures (losing them all) and were abandoned twice - once on the wrong end of the game and the other in a cracking game where we had the edge over Devon.

When the SW counties championship ended counties chose different playing options and our under 21 side became the Development XI. Originally these fixtures remained at under 21 level with the Devon games being under 19 but gradually sides stated putting out older teams / minor county second teams against our squad and our results have tailed off as a result e.g. Wiltshire played an Australian 22 year old that had scored 3 hundreds in a week against us and he saw them home with a score of 96no!

For next season Devon have joined up their Lions and under 19 squad and would like to fixture us a 2 day game in Plymouth in July ( our first team have a game on at that time as do they) and Dorset would like a second team fixture too. There is talk of starting a new competition.

Back to the cricket! We managed to start all 6 games and massive thanks to Wadebridge CC and Callington CC ( twice) for hosting us. The general rule of thumb was that we were younger and less experienced than the opposition - real development stuff - and that we fielded players from the Premier League down to division 3. On several occasions I spent hours the day and night before games dealing with cry-offs , although we got many minor counties players on the park.

Notts and Gloucestershire were incredibly supportive in allowing us to play Tom Rowe, Ben Kitt and Tom Shrewsbury and we also used regular minor counties players Taylor Williams and Christian Purchase as well as Adam Cocking, Paul Smith and Callum Wilson, who made their debuts this year. Sadly Jake Libby, James Rowe and Scott Harvey  were unable to play through injury and work commitments.

The batting highlights were a century for Adam Cocking v Wilts with Paul Smith contributing a fifty here and another against Devon. Two 16 year olds scored fifties - James Turpin from Wadebridge and Liam Lombard from St Erme, who has now joined Truro.

The best seam bowler overall was Josh Sharpe from Grampound  Road and Tom Eggins bowled well to take 2-22 from 10 overs v Devon.

The 3 players involved with first class counties would make very worthy minor counties players and are keen to play when not tied up.

Thanks to Dave Eggins who took over from Steve Raven with the scoring and helped out as well as the umpires Simon Menneer, Dave Higman and Roy Strout
