Sidmouth ladies B team completed their Winter League campaign last week, writes Kate Truman.

The match was against Sampford Peverell and the 8-0 success clinched the team top spot in the table, finishing ahead of arch rivals Sidford!

The team was captained by Marlene Maynard also comprised; Jackie Ensall, Vici Topping and Kate Truman. Across their 10 league games with a maximum points total of 80 on offer, the ladies banked no fewer than 66 which is an exceptional effort.

The team had previously enjoyed a successful summer league season that had ended with them getting promotion and now they have achieved the same thing in the winter league!

Captain Marlene Maynard said: “I’m really proud of our achievement. We only joined the league a couple of seasons ago and have had to start at the bottom and try to work our way up. It took us a while to become match savvy and to develop partnerships that worked well together but we now feel like we’re making real progress. I’d really like to thank our club coach, Sue Wiltshire, who has been a fantastic support and continues to give us the confidence and know-how to continually improve our game.”
