PUBLISHED: 08:00 23 September 2018
The Sidmouth seniors’ return fixture against Axe Cliff was played on the Seaton course in fine weather and good spirits, writes Hugh Dorliac.
First out for Sidmouth were captain Tony Stoyle with Keith James, who soon found themselves in a tight match.
In the end the match was a draw with honours even.
Unfortunately, the next three matches went the way of the home team despite some early promise from the visitors and it was left to Ken Rothwell and Graham Vincent to find a win and a well- earned point for Sidmouth to clinch the two leg tie with the final score being six-and-a-half to five-and-a-half.
● Last Friday, the running of the Sidmouth Jewellers Stableford saw another win for Lee Barber with 40 points earning a two-stroke deduction off his handicap.
Second was Graham Davies on 37 with Paul Hackett on 36.
● This week’s UpperCrust Monday Stableford was won by Neil Holland with a more modest 37 on countback from Brian Margison.
John Jones was third with 36 points.
The standard scratch score for the day was 68 rather than 66, so Brian saw his handicap drop by one stroke to 13 for next time out.
