he past week was a busy one for the Axe Cliff ladies, writes Dave Bruce.
It all began on Monday when Helen Kenworthy, Glenda Board, Caroline Bond and Janet Dack represented the club, and very well too, at the County Warren Crocus Foursomes.
In the Silver Division, Helen and Glenda came 11th out of 29 while, in the Bronze Division, Caroline and Janet were 12th again out of a field of 29. Well done, both pairs on a set of excellent results.
Also on Monday, a small group played a friendly against Sidmouth ladies. In what was a most enjoyable match, played in a good spirit, all three games were very close, but Axe Cliff just managed to hold on, with two wins and the other one being halved. Look out! Margaret Kenchington is finding her form again!
Tuesday saw the final of the Devon League with Bovey Tracey and Tiverton going head-tohead and wow, what a contest it was!

After six games it was all square and the seventh and final one went to the 18th where the Tiverton lady became the third member of her team to lose her ball which left Bovey Tracey overall victors.
On Wednesday, the ladies were competing in the fifth round of the Axe Cliff Cup with the best three scores to count, played under medal rules.

There were tough conditions for the players, but, after a close contest, Stella Thompson, who netted an excellent 77, was able to edge captain Jo Donmall and Jill Wellington into second and third places respectively.
Also on Wednesday, our lovely Sandra Walker played brilliantly at Lyme Regis coming in second in the Silver Division of the South West Vets Autumn meeting.
