Axminster indoor bowlers sink Dunkeswell with wins on all rinks played

After having our first three fixtures cancelled for various reasons we got off to a good start with a 67-39 shot win at home to Dunkeswell with wins on all rinks, writes David Harris.

John Hill, Pam Clark, Ann Clayton, and Jean Kesterton won 22-7 whilst Morrison Brown, Derek Pheby, Brenda Raistrick, and Sheila Martin won 22-14 and Phil White, Margaret Brown, David Harris, and Brian Clark claimed a 23-18 success.

We then lost a very fluctuating game at Sidmouth (52-61) with our only winners being David Harris, Ann Clayton, Pat Whitworth, and Bob Sherborne (15-14) – a really excellent match!

On Wednesday we played Plymouth in our first County Over-60s match of the Season, but lost 67-87 in what was a fairly tight match with the score rather flattering he opposition!

Our best effort came from the away rink of John Packham, Eric Skeemer, Bob Sherborne, and Charlie Barber who won 20-17.
