Sidmouth Seniors played host to Ilfracombe and managed a result to match the weather. 

Seniors Captain Brian Rice and his partner Mark McGoogan, playing his first match, were 3 up after 4 holes, and ending up winning 6&5. Phil Spencer and Gareth Stephens, another playing his first match also had a comfortable victory, 5&4.

Mike Davis and Chris Grubb had a tighter match but came out victorious winning on the 16th. Peter Basnett and Paul Blay had a much tougher encounter with Peter having to give 26 shots to one of his opponents. However, the Sidmouth pair won on the 18th. 

Jonty Clews and Vernon Ruffle had a more straightforward match, 5&4, whilst the final pairing of Steve Nunn and Roger Bawden went right to the last hole and Ilfracombe managed to avoid a whitewash by halving this match. Sidmouth take a big lead to the return match at Ilfracombe in July.
