Sidmouth ladies played in the first round of the Lacemaker’s Trophy, instigated by Honiton Bowls Club, on Sunday and came up against stiff opposition, writes Zena Johnson

The Lacemaker’s Trophy is a ladies knockout tournament of five disciplines, comprising of a two-wood singles, a four-wood singles, pairs, triples and fours.

Sidmouth were drawn against Torquay United in the first round. The four-wood singles and triples played away at Torquay and the other three teams played here at Sidmouth.

Although our ladies played well they were beaten on the day in all five games.

Torquay will now go on to the next round and Sidmouth look forward to trying again next year in this very popular tournament.

Well done our ladies for a valiant effort and better luck next year.
