Feniton men have had mixed fortunes in their competitive matches this past week, writes Roger Smith.

They lost their first County Trophy match to Madeira 91-69.

However, they redeemed themselves in the Top Club competition defeating Phear Park in all five disciplines.

The winning rinks were D Evans (2-wood) 22-8, A Kury (4-wood) 21-3, J Skinner and K Lovering (pairs) 33-7, A Evans, R Cooke and P Spreadbury (triples) 24-8 and A Smith, E Cox, D Coyne and R Smith (fours) 22-13.

In the over 60s men’s triples league the A team scored a resounding win against visitors North Tawton by 47-19. The winning rinks were J Livings, P Edmonds and A Evans 23-9 and M Evans, R Smith and R Arundell 24-10.

The B team lost to Madeira C by 35-32. Despite the close score, neither rink managed to win.

The ladies achieved an excellent win in the Inter Club competition defeating Marina 48-32, in a match played in inclement weather. The winning rinks were J Smith, A Coyne, Ru Clarke and G North (24-14) and G Blackmore, J Evans, D Phillips and R Veitch (24-18).

The mixed team gained an impressive victory against visiting Chudleigh 118-75.
