Chardstock booked a place in the final of the Top Club competition after semi-final success over Axminster, writes Vaughan Fletcher.

In the meeting with Axminster there was success for A Dredge in the four-wood singles (21-10); S Hatcliffe and T Dredge in the pair (25-10); K Waklein, J Rolph and M Toms, in the triple (31-6) and J Keats, J Currie, W Kerr and N Denslow, in the rink (36-6).

Chardstock now meet Madeira in the final with that match set to be played on July 25.

After a flying start in the Exeter and District men's Over-60s Triples League in which they secured five wins and a draw in six outings, the A team have lost their most recent two matches, going down to both Axminster (47-38) and Heavitree (49-21). The defeats see the team slip to a mid-table berth. Hopefully this is only a blip and we will see them back to winning ways soon.

The B team also sit mid table in their division helped by an emphatic 35-21 win against Ottery St Mary.
