The week started quietly for Seaton with no games on Monday or Tuesday, writes Linda Stone. Members took the opportunity to play many of the early round matches in the club competitions.

Wednesday was as usual the day for the Over Sixties Men to play, unfortunately the weather decided to take a turn for the worse and the ‘A’ team’s match against Culm Vale and the ‘B’ team’s against Tiverton Borough were both cancelled. However the ‘C’ team played their match with Topsham ‘D’ winning on both rinks with a combined score of 39 – 25 shots. Top triple was Peter Grigg, Geoff Fullalove and Reg Pluck.

Starcross visited Seaton on Thursday to play a friendly match. The final score was Seaton 99, Starcross 52, with two strong triples – Angie Mayhew, Hazel Smith and Ken Shean winning by 31 – 9 shots and Sheila and Brian Pike, Terry Hurley-Smith and Di Morley winning 29 – 7.

The semi-finals of the men’s Grater Pairs took place at Seaton on Friday evening. Two Seaton teams won and will now play each other in the final next Friday evening.

On Saturday, in perfect weather for bowls, our junior vice-captain Maria Johnson led Seaton to a victory against Madeira, Seaton winning by just one shot 77 – 76. Seaton’s top rink was Tony Johnson, Ray Thompson, Hazel Smith and Maria Johnson.

Sunday’s game against Hemyock, at Seaton, had to be cut short due to a heavy rain shower which made the green rather slippery. Seaton won after 14 ends having 50 shots to 45. Top triple for Seaton was Ann Joyner, Geoff Fullalove, and Joan Miles.
