Clevedon Ladies B team secured promotion to Division Three of the Bristol & District Alliance after a nailbiting finish.

Having just missed out last year, they needed five points against Long Ashton to be sure of going up this time.

And after waiting on the last match, they managed it to finish runners-up behind Wells.

The men just failed in their bid to add the Pickeridge Bowl to the trophy cabinet as they were outgunned by a strong Enmore Park side in the final at Weston.

Club competitions were postponed on Saturday due to a waterlogged course, while only two players took part in the midweek stableford, but the seniors held their event and Steve Boyle came out on top with 37 points.

Father and son Chris and Josh Owen won the Adult Junior Open, pipping Ali Balcombe and Jacob Lillington on countback.

Results, Adult Junior Open: Chris & Josh Owen 42; Ali Balcombe & Jacob Lillington 42; Jonathan & Lewis Young 39.

Senior stableford, Div 1: John Harris 36; Mike Wake 36; John Knightbridge 35.

Div 2: Steve Boyle 37; Brian Smith 35; Stuart Williams 34.
