Axminster's Over-60s men were beaten on their visit to Crediton for a Devon League match, writes David Harris.

The trip to Mid Devon saw the home side win 38-24, but there was a fine 17-14 success for the Axminster trio of John Hill, David Harris, and Bob Sherborne.

The team bounced back to land a 47-18 home win over St Thomas.

Here there was success on both rinks; Frank Bridge, David Harris, and Doug Looskan (25-8) and Tony Cable, Alan Morgan, and Bob Sherborne (22-10).

In the only mixed fixture played Axminster went down 104-77 at Lyme Regis. This despite winning two and tying one, of the five rinks played!

The winning Axminster rinks were; John Packham, Murial Smith, Brad Hallowes, and George Mabon (18-10) and Phil White, Pam Clark, John Hill, and Ken Quick (19-18), whilst Brenda Edwards, John Ellis, Steven Apsey, and Budgie Hallowes managed a creditable tie (17-17) after coming back from a long way behind!

The annual Axminster ladies versus Axminster gentlemen ended with success for the fairer sex won by a margin of one shot.

The winning rinks for the ladies were; Barbara Mowatt, Daphne Ryan and Joan Quick (27-17) and Mo Boshier, Phil White and Ann Clayton (19-13).
