Sidmouth seniors turned the tables on Warren Seniors in their second meeting of the season, writes Chris Chubb.
Having been given a heavy 5-1 beating when the teams met in South Devon, the Sidmouth seniors knew that to win the match overall they would have to be on top of their games.
Revenge proved to be sweet as the slopes of Sidmouth proved to be the undoing of the Warren golfers who are not use to anything but flat lies!
The first pair out for Sidmouth of captain for the day Bruce Harcourt and John White clearly had a battle on their hands from the start as the Warren team took the first hole.
The match was a close game and it was not until the 13th that the home duo got their noses in front, only to be pegged back at the 14th, but they then won the next three holes to clinch the match two-and-one.

The second pair out were Paul Blay and Lawrence Hill who had a much easier contest. Both player played well and it was their steady performance that took them to a seven-and-six success. Could things get even better?
Third out were H Thompson with Dave Roberts. Dave said that H is a calming influence on the course, but it seemed to be an inspiring one as they demolished their opponents nine-and-seven!
