Chardstock A staged a Wednesday meeting with Axminster in the Exeter and District men’s Over-60s Triples League, writes Vaughan Fletcher.

Having been soundly beaten by the visitors earlier in the season the team were delighted to get their revenge winning both rinks comfortably, taking maximum points.

This year the club have been delighted to welcome a number of new members, raising our numbers to over 50!

Thanks to the expert tutelage of our resident coach, Gordon Bodily, and his assistant coach, Brian Howard, these new members now have the skills and confidence to play for the club in friendly matches.

The experience of playing in these matches will teach them even more and we wish them well for the future.
