In the Over-60s Devon Men’s League Axminster defeated visiting St Thomas 38-30 with an excellent win for John Hill, Alan Taylor, and Sid Milburn (23-11), but the side lost away at Tiverton West End (30-52) with David Harris, Howard Keep, and Bob Sherborne unlucky to lose on the last end (16-17).

The men were well beaten in their two semi-finals in the County ‘Top Club’ and ‘Foxlands’ Competitions by the strong Feniton Club and we wish them well in the finals.
