Axminster indoor bowlers enjoyed a couple of good wins recently, writes David Harris.

First up, a mixed friendly meeting with visiting Dunkeswell was won 94-19 with success on all rinks; Andy Curtis, David Lawrence, Ann Clayton, and Brian Clark (34-1), Philippa White, Les Clark, David Harris, and Margaret Crompton (32-8), and Pam Hunter, John Hill, Alfie Day, and Derek Pheby (28-10).

That was followed by a home friendly against Devon Vice Presidents for the Axminster men, a match that was won 46-39 with wins for Andy Curtis, Alan Foster, David Harris, and Bob Sherborne (17-9) and Brian Cursley, Gerald Knott, Sid Milburn, and George Mabon (16-15).

However, the winning run was ended with a 57-28 reversal in a mixed friendly away at Exonia where two of the rinks scores were mighty close; Malcolm Denslow, Ann Clayton, Alfie Day, and Bob Sherborne (13-15) and Mick Hennegan, Marion Harris, David Harris, and Roger Legg (12-14)

Axminster men lost their County Over-60s match against Madeira, going down 114-56 with the best Axminster return coming from the away rink Ken Webster, David Harris, Derek Pheby, and Bob Sherborne, beaten by a margin of just four shots.
