Chardstock B enjoyed a terrific week as they won their Over-60s League meeting with Madeira B to move off the bottom of the table, writes Vaughan Fletcher.

The Exmouth team were beaten 37-27 with the success for Chardstock B on both rinks thanks to a 21-13 win for A Campbell, B Howard and W Kerr and a 16-14 victory for P Woods, D Eldridge and G Bodily.

There was not such good news for the A team in the same competition as they went down to a narrow three shot defeat away at Exonia B. The Exeter side won 35-32, but there was a 22-13 success for the Chardstock rink of M Rogers, K Wakelin and N Denslow.

Also last week there was a friendly for the men at Madeira, a match they lost 84-46 with defeats on three of the rinks and a 13-all tie for the rink of S Hatcliffe, J Rolph and D Mears.
