Axe Cliff ladies played away at Bigbury in a midweek Devon League match, writes Pete Motson.

The home side fielded a strong team which resulted in all the Axe Cliff ladies receiving shots.

Most of the matches were close affairs and the home club certainly made the visiting party very welcome.

The hosts also took the match honours thanks to a three-and-a-half to two-and-a-half score line. However, due to the competition scoring system vis-à-vis away points the final score was Axe Cliff seven-and-a-half to Bigbury’s seven.

The following day the ladies played the previously postponed (owing to inclement weather), captain versus secretary competition.

The teams were drawn to play for either the captain of the secretary. With four pairings back in the clubhouse the overall score stood at 2-2.

This meant the final pairs out on the course would decide the winning team and it was the team representing the secretary that won! Well done, to Di Rogers and her team.
