On Saturday, Sidmouth B team visited Axe Cliff Golf Club for the second leg of the Jurassic Cup, played annually by these two teams, writes John Barnard.

In the first leg, Sidmouth had won convincingly, 5-1, and so travelled in a confident mood, although under no illusions it would be much tighter in the away leg.

Axe Cliff has spectacular views as it is on top of a hill, overlooking Seaton and Lyme Bay, but that means it is very exposed and on Saturday – and yes, the wind blew!

In the first match, captain Colin Macklin and Bob Welsman won two-and-one, ensuring at the very least, the trophy would be halved.

The next two matches were lost, but Mark Pavey and Sean Murphy won convincingly, four-and-three to ensure the Sidmouth win. Keith Newton and Ray Gunston halved their match so it ended up with a loss on the away leg of three-and-a-half to two-and-a-half, but an overall seven-and-a-half to four-and-a-half success.

This was another excellent result for the B team led admirably by Colin Macklin.

There is an awful to of work needed, to captain one of the club teams and Colin has done this for some years with no reward other than the pleasure of obtaining some excellent results.
