Sidmouth B team were back in action on Sunday, playing Honiton in the Andy Harrison Memorial Bowl, writes Joh Barnard.
This is a two-legged competition and Sidmouth lost the first leg, played earlier in the season, five-and-a-half to a half which all meant a ‘miracle’ was required if they were to lift the Bowl!
The course was in excellent condition with the greens not as quick as usual but playing true so a good well struck putt will hold its line.
First off were Mike Dommett and Jeremy Holden, and, after a tight match, they managed to prevail, winning two up.
Second out were Simon Jones and Sean Murphy who won three-and-two.

All was looking promising until the next match came in to the clubhouse having lost, one down, both players blaming the other (they shall be nameless) for missing short putts on the 17th and 18th respectively!
Brian Leach played with Allan Malcolm and they returned the best win of the day winning five-and-four.

They were followed by Pete Northcott and Dan Churchill, winning on the 18th thanks to a splendid bunker shot (from the captain’s bunker) by Dan followed by a short putt for a birdie to clinch the win.
Finally, bringing up the rear were the pairing of Kim White and Paul Ranken who, despite a gallant effort, lost three-and-two.
That all added up to an overall win for Honiton and the trophy was lost! It was the a case of the away leg score leaving the team too much to do on home turf.
