Axminster bowlers have been busy with New Year action, writes David Harris.

The home rink of Mike Hennegan, Alan Nabbaro, David Like, and Derek Pheby won 24-14 whilst both away rinks were successful - Brian Cursley, Malcolm Denslow, George Mabon, and Bob Sherborne (23-18) and John Ellis, Alfie Day, David Harris, and Ken Webster (17-16).

There have been four mixed friendlies played since the festive break, but they produced just a single win!

First up was a meeting with visiting Nomads, who departed with a 62-55 success. The best of the home rinks was the one of Alan Foster, Mike Mellor, Jean Kesterton, and Margaret Crompton, who managed a 16 -16 tie.

Next a trip to Dorset BC saw Axminster beaten with the only success being an 18-11 rink win for Malcolm Denslow, Marion Harris, and Brian Clarke.
