Sidmouth Chiefs capped an outstanding season and made history by achieving a league and cup double with what was ultimately a convincing 39-19 victory over league runners-up Crediton in front a large crowd at the Blackmore Field, writes Terry O'Brien.
A crowd gathered at the Blackmore Field, enjoying the glorious spring weather, for the annual match between the Quins and an Ottery XV, a contest ultimately won by the Quins 55-15, writes Terry O'Brien.
Sidmouth RFC are the pride of the town this Easter after they completed a league and cup double, winning the Devon Intermediate Cup, beating Crediton 39-19 before the biggest turnout seen at the Blackmore in many a year.
The Quins suffered their first home defeat of the season in this Dave Butt Cup semi-final played in front of a crowd of more than 200 spectators at the Blackmore Field, going down 29-8 to Torquay Athletic 2nd XV.
Sidmouth Chiefs kept their place at the top of the Tribute Western Counties (W) table and ensured that the Devon Intermediate Cup final against Crediton will be played on the Blackmore Field after a workman-like 28-10 win against Paignton, which also consigned their opponents to relegation, writes Terry O'Brien.
Sidmouth Chiefs kept their league championship aspirations alive with a dramatic comeback at High House where three tries in the final 25 minutes enabled them to claw back a 14-point deficit to defeat hosts Kingsbridge 31-26 and so record a vital bonus point win, writes Terry O'Brien.
Sidmouth Chiefs were 45-26 winners over Falmouth and the bonus point win they banked with the result takes the Chiefs back to the top of the Western Counties West table in what is proving to be an exciting final few weeks of the season, writes Terry O'Brien.
Sidmouth Chiefs suffered their third defeat in four games on their first ever visit to Winscombe, and the 25-21 loss drops them to third place and out of the league promotion/play-off places for the present, writes Terry O'Brien.
