Sue Evans of Honiton Bowling Club has been given an England trial this coming Saturday, writes Julie Grant.

Sue will travel to Leamington in the hope of being selected for her country next season.

She is up against it though as there are only 12 places left in the team plus reserves, to play for. The club wishes her the best of fortune in her endeavour.

Great bowling in the last few friendlies has given Honiton four away victories.

Against Ottery, Honiton won 114-66 with tying top rinks each scoring 27-10, June Lee, Jean Mitchell, David Downs and skip Gerry Stafrace, Carole Stafrace, Bob Mackintosh, Barrie Singleton and skip Roger Binmore. At Budleigh Honiton won 94-64, top rink Di Hawkins, Tony Williams and Bill Nicholls 28-7.

Bill skipped the winning rink at Feniton with Maureen Parsons, Daphne Courtney and Barrie Singleton scoring 22-14 in a close 77-76 victory.

Against Uffculme Honiton won 93-44 to end a very good week’s bowling.

In the Men’s Over-60s Triples League the A team needed two points to escape relegation and they managed to score six against Phear Park B and so stay up for next season.

Well done, to Bill Nicholls, Tony Williams and Gerry Stafrace who won 26-19.

There was also terrific news for a pair of talented youngsters from the club with Kieran Daniels and Scott Eveleigh winning the Bowls Devon Unbadged Pairs county title last weekend with a victory over a duo from Kings, Torquay.

Kieran also took the Under 25 singles title with a convincing 21-11 win to complete a well earned double . Both young men were a credit to Honiton, well done indeed.
