Axminster bowlers enjoyed excellent victories in their two home mixed friendlies, but the men lost in their two County games, writes David Harries.

First we beat Honiton at home (69-56) with wins for Valerie Mellor, David Harris, and Nigel Bond (22-18), Philippa White, Bridget Hallowes, and Margaret Crompton (17-7), and Eve Cole, Mike Mellor, and Brian Clark (16-10).

Next up, a 64-41 win over Taunton Bowls Club with success for Morrison Brown, John Hill, and Bridget Hallowes (21-8), David Harris, Ann Burn, and Nigel Bond (15-7), and Philippa White, Margaret Brown, and Ann Clayton (15-10).

Alas the men were knocked out of the County Foxlands competition by the strong Madeira Club and also lost their Over-60s game at Phear Park.

Unfortunately, Dunkeswell were unable to raise a team for their Over-60s game with us.

This weekend, 22 members enjoyed our Presidents Day with our lady president Lilian Lovatt treating us all to a splendid lunch prepared by ladies’ captain Ann Clayton.
