On Saturday Sidmouth Men played their first game in the Interclub League against local opponents Honiton on a two rink at home, two rink away basis.
It proved to be a difficult game for Sidmouth with Honiton in good form winning on all four rinks. Better luck next time, chaps!
Also on Saturday, the Sidmouth Ladies played their first round of the Yetton Trophy against Madeira on a two rink at home, two rink away basis.
Having lost to Sidmouth in the first round of the Mason Trophy the opposition were clearly in no mood to see that outcome repeated they were victorious on both away rinks and only losing by one shot in the game at Exmouth so Madeira go through to the next round, but Sidmouth get a second chance in the Yetton Plate in which they will now play Budleigh Salterton.
