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!
