Chardstock A falter in Over-60's Triples League

After the flying start to the season, which saw the A team rise to the top of the Exeter & District Men's Over-60s Triples League Division Four table, three losses in successive weeks has seen them fall back into mid-table, writes Vaughan Fletcher.
The B team however, have seen their results improve recently and they now sit in fourth place in their division.
A highlight for them was their recent one shot victory away at St Thomas B. Last season the club played its first ever match away to Bideford.
Such was the success of the venture that the clubs agreed to adding two fixtures to this year's calendar.
And so, on July 2, Bideford made the journey south for their first match in our beautiful village and once again a great day was had by both teams with Chardstock running out winners in a close match.
