Sidmouth Seniors travelled to Minehead for the return fixture of their two-legged match, writes Chris Grubb.

Sidmouth travelled with a 5-1 advantage after the first leg in East Devon.

Captain for the day, Bruce Harcourt, led out the first pairing with Paul Blay.

Bruce and Paul had a good round up to the ninth when the opponents got a hole up and then followed it with a two on the 10th and a fine chip in to the 11th to go three up.

The Sidmouth pair battled on, but had to finally concede on the 17th losing two-and-one.

Despite being a very experienced pair Ray Gunston, club captain, and Colin Mitchell met their match against an excellent pair from Minehead and duly lost out on the 14th losing five-and-four.
