The finals for the Devon Cup were held on Friday 22nd March at Torquay.

I would like to thank Torquay for hosting the event and also the markers on the night, David Morris, Dean Clayton & Jonathon Doney.

There was plenty of support for both of the teams in the final which was between Torquay and Exeter Golf & CC. The glass back was the main court on the night and it was difficult to find a place to sit for every match.

The order of play was 5,4,3,1,2 and the matches were quite even. It started off and got to 1-1. Then Exeter GCC won at string 3 to take them ahead. The next Match was between Dave Palmer & Luke Bishop, Dave needed this to keep Torquay in the cup. He finally managed this winning 3-1.

The final match of the evening was string 2 Stuart Perret v Christian Turner. This turned out to be a very noisy match from the supporters of both sides cheering on their players. Having already won the Premier Division Torquay were after the double. Unfortunately it didn’t happen with Christian taking the match and the Cup going to Exeter Golf & CC.

The other final was the Plate between Crediton & Exeter University. There were a couple of close matches but Exeter University were too strong for Crediton beating them 4-1.

Here are the Results for the Matches:
