The past week was another successful week for Feniton Bowls Club, writes Roger Smith.

In the Exeter and District over 60s league the A team defeated Budleigh Salterton 40-25 to finish as runners up in Division Three and thereby win promotion to Division Two for next year.

The winning rinks were D Sanders, R North and J Skinner (24-13) and M Evans, A Smith and R Smith (16-12). The B team finished their season with a good 41-28 away win at Crediton and consequently finished mid-table in Division Five. The winning was C Maynard, L Let and R Clarke (23-8).

The mixed team lost their friendly with local rivals Ottery St Mary by 94 shots to 84. The winning rink was V Jones, A Morgan, J Smith and I Veitch (27-12).

However, they enjoyed a comfortable 127-93 win against visitors Wellington.
