It was the second match for the Sidmouth B team on Saturday, away at Honiton in the Andy Harrison Memorial trophy, writes John Barnard.
It is played over two legs and this year, Sidmouth were away in the opening leg.
All looked to be going well initially as Colin Macklin and Simon Knowles rattled off a convincing 4 and 2 victory in the opening match.
From thereon, results went from bad to worse. Trevor Kerridge and Chris Grubb were four down with five to play and only lost on the last hole.
Jim Anderton has had a great start to the year but is now playing off a lower handicap and with his playing partner Don Cooper struck by a ball on the way round, they struggled to lose by 3 and 2.

Worse was to follow as the last three matches were all won by Honiton so by the end, Sidmouth were 5-1 down. However, the second leg is at home where the B team have a great record so a 6-0 win is quite possible.
