Sidmouth's level play golf croquet team entertained Cornwall in their first match of the new season.

Sidmouth got off to a very good start in both the doubles and singles played in the morning session.

With Philip Harris, Roger Hendy and Michael Hide winning all of their games, Sidmouth had a commanding lead at the lunch break.

Sidmouth continued to press their advantage in the afternoon with Graeme Prior and Ian Simpson playing particularly well.

The match finished Sidmouth 15½-Cornwall 4½ - a most satisfactory result for the home team.

Thanks go to Gill Hodge for providing a lovely lunch.

● Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth Croquet Clubs met recently for their twice-yearly ‘supposedly’ friendly match in which they compete for the Seagull trophy.

Budleigh won him back from Sidmouth with a resounding victory of 12-4.
