They hosted the return leg against Teign Valley, a recently new fixture.

The first leg, played at Teign Valley, had seen Sidmouth win 4-2 which lead to them going into the second meeting in a confident mood.

Captain Colin Macklin led the team off as usual with regular partner Bob Welsman and they had a solid two-and-one win.

Unexpectedly, the next two matches were lost ,but from thereon, the Sidmouth team all recorded good wins.
