Axminster bowlers endured a dearth of fixtures during the past fortnight with only two mens’ Over-60s and two mixed friendly matches played, writes David Harris.
The first of the Over-60s meetings was at Starcross where the home side won 44-25. This despite a good win for Brian Cursley, John Hill, and Bob Sherborne (17-15).
Next up a home meeting with Chardstock ended all square at 34-all. In this match there was a fine 18-13 success for Howard Keep, David Harris, and Doug Looskan.
Both the friendly matches played were lost. First yp a trip to Lyme Regis ended in a 109-73 reversal.
The only Axminster winners were Brian Cursley, Derek Pheby, Ann Clayton, and Doug Looskan, who enjoyed a 20-15 success.
Next up a visit to Kingsteignton saw Axminster beaten 73-63.
