The latest Seaton bowling week began with a Monday, East of Exe Mixed League meeting with visiting Hemyock, writes Alan Nicholas.

Seaton won on three rinks and lost on one, taking the overall match honours 76-48 with the top rink the one of Ruby Grigg, Esdre Keller, Linda Stone and Roger Woolland, with an excellent 21-5.

The first Wednesday of July saw both Seaton ladies’ Over-50s Triples League teams in away action.

The Blue team were at Crediton where they met the home club’s Green team, but lost on both triples. The Red team travelled into Exeter to meet Exonia where they won one triple and lost the other. However, it was the home club who took the match honours with a 40-36 shot score. The winning Seaton triple was the one of Margaret Nicholas, Lin Allison and Sue Banwell-Moore, 20-19.

Also on Wednesday, the men’s Over-60s Triples League matches took place at home. The A team entertained a Heavitree A team that won both triples to take the match score by 38 shots to 30. Meanwhile, the B team, playing Madeira B, shared the triples,but lost the match 38 shots to 36.

The winning triple for Seaton was that of Norman Stone, Peter Grigg and Richard Whitworth, 23-11.

Thursday, saw a visit to the Axminster Outdoor Bowling Club for a friendly match of three triples, on their carpet.

This was a new experience for a number of the Seaton team, who found the artificial surface exceedingly slick on a very hot and sunny afternoon.

The home team performed exceedingly well and put our team to the sword, winning all three triples and taking the match 87 shots to 35.

Friday saw another men’s Over-60s Triples league match for Seaton B, who travelled into Exeter to meet Heavitree C. The rinks were shared one-each, but the Exeter side won overall, 37-25.

The winning triple for Seaton, being that of, Norman Stone, Peter Grigg and Richard Whitworth, 17-14.

Finally, on Sunday, the ladies played Honiton at home in the Grace Matthews Trophy over five disciplines.

This was a highly competitive match played out in very hot sun. Seaton ladies won the pairs and the triples, but lost the two singles and the rink and so it is the Honiton ladies, who move onto the next round.
