The past week saw an encouraging change in fortune for Feniton bowlers, writes Roger Smith.

In a men’s County Trophy, the final Feniton match of the campaign saw them defeat Sidmouth on all rinks to win overall at 97-68.

The victory means that the team end the season as the third placed side in the section.

The winning Feniton rinks were: R Lovering, L Ley, A Evans and I Veitch (28-9); D Sanders, R Smith, A Smith and R Clarke (24-15); P Goodwin, R Cooke, A Kury and K Lovering (22-20) and A Morgan, D Downs, G Phillips and J Skinner (23-22). Unfortunately, they lost in their Section Three final of the Foxlands Trophy competition, going down 52-23 to Madeira.

There was also success for the men’s Over-60s Triples League teams. The A team were 40-24 winners against Madeira B with a 23-12 success for the rink of M Chipperfield, I Veitch and J Skinner and a 17-15 win for the rink of J Livings, D Sanders and R North.
