Axminster men down to earth with a bump
The indoor season is now well under way with everyone thoroughly enjoying their games and generally a very good standard of bowling being shown- lots of smiling faces which is good for us all!
The men narrowly lost their friendly at home to Westlands (47-54) in a game that has now become a very popular fixture.
Axminster’s best rink was Les Monk, John Packham, Neil Solomon, and Ray Macdonald (26-16).
In the mixed friendlies, Axminster started with an excellent win at home to Chardstock (71-38) with Phil White, Margaret Crompton, David Harris, and Derek Eldridge in good form (33-13).
Axminster then lost narrowly at Honiton in a triples match ( 66-71) with the best effort coming from Pam Clark, Ann Clayton, and Bob Sherborne (24-16).
