Chardstock bowlers endured a disappointing past week in terms of the Over-60s Triples League matches, writes Vaughan Fletcher

The A team went down 41-31 to visiting Phear Park A with a 23-14 defeat for the rink of V Fletcher, K Wakelin and J Porter and a narrow 18-17 reversal for P Compton, M Toms and N Denslow.

The B team were in action at Wellington A where they suffered a 50-25 defeat. P Woods, D Eldridge and T Dredge were beaten 21-17 and the rink of A Campbell, B Howard and W Kerr were defeated 29-8.

However, the club did very well in its friendly matches winning three out of four.

The one reversal was a 73-57 loss at Broadclyst where the rink scores were: N Mugridge, John Porter and D Hatcliffe (11-21); M Davenport, B Howard and J Rolph (14-23); Jeanette Porter, S Hatcliffe and G Campbell (10-16); M Copp, E Rolph and J Pratt (22-13).
