Sidmouth B play twice in two days with mixed fortunes

After a long wait for the first B team fixture of the year the team played twice I as many days, writes George Carr.
Saturday saw a strong visiting Honiton team give Colin Macklin’s selected team a good run for their money before Sidmouth scraped home three-and-a-half games to two-and-a-half, which leaves them a difficult match at Honiton in the return fixture if they are to retain the bragging rights.
On paper this looked a strong Sidmouth side and most matches were close; Malcolm Willoughby and Lee Wenham winning 4-2 were Sidmouth’s best and surprisingly Simon Knowles and Bob Welsman at the other end of the scale went down 3-2.
Sunday’s home fixture to The Warren (Dawlish) proved to quite a different matter! Colin Macklin and John Welch gave the home team a flying start with a 5-4 victory and the match finished five-and-a-half to a half in favour of the hosts.
