East & South Devon Advertiser (23 august 1902, p. 8)

This match was commenced on the Teignbridge ground on Wednesday. The home side went in first but made a poor start, Brunskill being bowled with only 5 runs scored, and with only 9 runs added Martin was dismissed. Of the other batsmen, H. A. Francis was the only one to makes good stand, and he carried out his bat for an admirable 55, in which he hit one 5, three 4's, and six two's. The innings realised 121. Geeson and Hearne bowled with effect, the former taking 5 wickets for 47 runs, and Hearne 5 for 64. When stumps were drawn for the day the visitors had made 111 for 5 wickets, Geeson having batted well for 44 and Hearne for 28. Play was resumed on Thursday before a large attendance and in lovely weather. The visitors increased their overnight score to 168 before being dismissed. Murrell handled the bat in fine style for 51. L. G. Vicary and G. C. Vicary did some good work with the ball. In their second venture the home team again experienced difficulty in dealing with the bowling of Geeson and Hearse, and were disposed of for 106, towards which J. N. Martin contributed a capital 41. The visitors required 60 runs to win, and these they obtained for the lose of 4 wickets, and thus won by 6 wickets. Scores:—
