Weston's seniors had mixed fortunes in a pair of inter-club friendlies last week.

Steve Corrick and Allan Tucker lost on the last at Taunton & Pickeridge, while John Whitewood and Graham Quick went down 2&1.

Paul Chesney and John Humphrey should have been more than one up before being pegged back at the fifth and eventually lost 2&1, before Rob Filer and Bill Diamond were two up, then lost four holes to go two down, before winning 16 and 17 for a half.

Andy Chambers and Scott McKechnie saw their opponents card six nett birdies and chip in twice in a 6&5 defeat, before Matt Lazenby and Terry Waite offered some consolation with a 4&3 win in a 4.5-1.5 loss.

Enmore Park visited two days later, with Chambers and Quick beaten 2&1 in the top match.
