Feniton’s mixed team continued their winning ways in the East of Exe League when they secured a 70-54 success over Hemyock, a result that keeps the team on top of the table, writes Roger Smith.

The winning rinks were A Evans, D Downs, D Sanders and D Phillips (17-8), R Lovering, L Ley, R Veitch and I Veitch (19-13) and P Goodwin, A Pritchard, J Skinner and K Lovering (21-17).

No play was possible in the men’s Over-60s Triples League and it was a similar soggy tale with regard to the ladies’ scheduled Over-50s League as the weather hit the programme.

The mixed team did see action with a visit to Honiton where wins on all three rinks saw them to an overall victory.

They were then beaten 69-54 at home to Sidmouth with the lone success being a 13-12 win for the rink of G Skinner, D Bowden and A Smith.
