It has been a splendid couple of weeks for the Chardstock B team playing in the Exeter and District Over-60s Triples League, writes Vaughan Fletcher.

First up, they travelled to close division rivals Chagford, where they drew 31 shots all with the rink of G Bodily, B Howard and T Dredge winning 13-12.

The following week they banked maximum points from a 41-20 win at home to Sidmouth C in a match that saw them win on both rinks. There was a 27-7 success for G Bodily, B Howard and T Dredge while the rink of J Keats, N Barron and W Kerr were single shot winners at 13-13. The two results leave Chardstock B sitting third in Division Seven with fourth placed Chagford a single point behind.
