On Wednesday, the Over-60s B team lost away to Starcross B, but gained a two point rink win from Richard Whitworth, Don Yaxley and Dave Yardley. On Friday they travelled to Tiverton Borough for a re-arranged match and won with the maximum eight points - Jeremy Allison converting two down to three up with his last wood.

Meanwhile, the Over -60s C team Seaton banked eight points with a score of 44 to 27 with the top triple proving to be the one of P Grigg, G Thomas and G Mabon.

The ladies played two Over-50s games this week, both at home. The first, last Tuesday, was against Morchard Bishop Red. Seaton won 31 to 18 with the top triple being M Johnson, P Whitworth and J Miles.

Next up was a visit from Crediton Yellow on Friday and they were beaten 47-24 with the top triple being the one of A Joyner, L H-Smith and Angie Mayhew.

There were two friendlies played last week.
