Sidmouth B put High Bullen to the sword

The Sidmouth B team was in action on Sunday, writes John Barnard.
The visitors were High Bullen. It’s a bit like Liverpool used to say 30 years ago about playing West Ham. Always an enjoyable game, great guys, and we always win.
Sidmouth were ahead 4–2 after the away leg and a convincing 6–0 victory at home meant the double was achieved again.
Captain Colin Macklin played with his regular buddie (and buggy) partner Bob Welsman and achieved a three-and-two victory. None of the matches were very close after, the highlight being a five-and-four success for Jeremy Holden and Dan Churchill.
Usually, there is a nearest the pin to win a bottle of wine or some balls although it was forgotten for this match.
You may also want to watch:
Craig Melluish would have won it easily after a magnificent tee shot on the fourth left him only 15 inches from the pin.
The High Bullen players must have seen him putting before as three shots later, it was in the bottom of the cup!
