DEVON TO PLAY AT LEAMINGTON

Congratulations to the Middleton Cup team who have reached the semi-finals of the competition by beating old rivals Cornwall in a match played on quite a tricky green at North Petherton BC. The saying “it was a game of two halves” certainly rang true in this match. After 10 ends Cornwall were 22 shots ahead, but the Devon players adjusted better when the green got faster and, in the end, they triumphed by 26 shots.
