Feniton men’s team continued their run of success in the County Trophy competition writes Roger Smith.

Their latest success was a 101-52 triumph over Budleigh Salterton, winning on all four rinks in the process!

As a result they were able to bank a maximum sixteen points.

The winning rinks were A Smith, R Clarke, D Evans and R Smith (29-7); A Evans, D Viles, D Coyne and K Lovering (27-12), R Cooke, G Phillips, R North and P Spreadbury (23-15) and I Veitch, E Cox, A Kury and S Dommett (22-18). Sadly, their interest in Foxlands competition came to an end when they were defeated by Madeira on both rinks in the section final of the event.

The Feniton Over-60s B team’s recent vein of good form continues.

First up they beat Budleigh Salterton B in a rearranged match by 34-27.

The winning rink was M Evans, D Conbeer and D Evans 19-10.

Secondly, they managed to win an extremely close away encounter against Bradninch A by 36-33.

The winning rinks were G Phillips, L Ley and R Clarke (18-16) and G Skinner, D Conbeer and D Evans (18-17). The A team finally returned to winning ways when they ran out 33-29 winners in a close encounter away at North Tawton.

The winning rink was D Sanders, A Smith and R Smith who claimed a 21-13 success.

The mixed team travelled to Plymouth Sir Francis Drake and won another close match by 123-116. The winning rinks were G Blackmore, G Skinner, I Veitch and P Spreadbury (39-6), Ru Clarke, G Perryman, J Smith and K Lovering (21-17) and D Phillips, M Mitchell, Ro Clarke and D Evans (21-17).

Last, but certainly not least to I Veitch, P Spreadbury, S Dommett and K Lovering for they continue to fly the Feniton flag in the County Fours Competition and are now into the finals.
