Seaton Bowls Club had a busy week of friendly games with three wins out of three, writes Linda Stone.

Monday saw local rivals, Axminster pay a visit and the were well beaten with the two largest winning margins being the same scores as both landed 41-7 victories!

Angie Mayhew, Ray Thompson, John Bellamy and skip Marian Vessey were one of the big winners and the other was the four of Audrey White, Keith Harris, George Mabon and skip Pat Whitworth.

On Tuesday Bradninch visited and were four short so Seaton provided the extra players and won the match by four shots!

The top Seaton rink was the one of Gill Sykes, Keith Miles and skip Hazel Smith.

On Friday Lyme Regis paid a visit and were beaten by three shots.

This time the top home rink was the one of Julia Collins, Alan Nicholas, Bob Scull and skip Di Morley.

However, Seaton ladies’ did not fare as well in the second round of the Devon Inter Club competition, losing on both rinks against a very strong Madeira team who were almost entirely county players!

Seaton did extremely well to hold their own until the 16th end, but the Madeira experience told in the closing stages. All at Seaton wish the Madeira team continued success in the competition.

Last Wednesday Seaton men’s Over-60s A team stretched their run of unbeaten games for the season to six when they entertained Feniton A and won by 19 shots (52-33).

The top triple was Ivor Steer, Roy Carnell and Roger Woolland. Seaton’s B team played Starcross B at home winning 40-31 for six points. The top rink (24 - 10) was Norman Stone, Terry Hurley-Smith and Don Yaxley.

The C team played Ottery St Mary winning convincingly by 44 shots to 19. The top ttriple was the one of Graham Thomas, Malcolm Carvell and George Mabon.

On Friday Sidmouth ladies travelled to Seaton to play an Over-50s League game.

After a hard fought game Seaton won by just one shot overall gaining their first win in the competition so far this season!

The final of the Grater pairs also took place on Friday evening. Winners Norman Stone and Terry Hurley-Smith will now be playing a pair from Madeira Bowls Club, in the area final, on Friday June 27, starting at 6.15pm.

Congratulations go to the club’s Roger Woolland, who has been successful in the County 2-wood singles competition and has won through to the last 16 in Devon.
